The long hug good night

15 Jul

Today is the last day we’ll have the internet for a little while.  Sure, I’ll have the internet on my phone, but I have enough trouble hitting the right buttons with my fat pregnancy fingers when just trying to type a text message.  There’s no way I can do a whole post from my phone.

Yes, we are moving tomorrow!  HOORAY!!!!!  I’m not going to think about the fact that the last people who lived there failed to clean the place.  The carpet hasn’t been vacuumed, kitchen floor not mopped, a years worth of dust is still chillin’ on all the window sills (sils?), the laundry sink has been drained and then left with a ring of crap around the bottom.  Sigh.  Nope, not thinking about all the cleaning I have to do at 37 weeks pregnant when it should have all been done before we got the keys.

Instead, I’m thinking about the shower.  The wonderful, more-than-a-trickle, you-can-have-hot-water-AND-water-pressure shower that awaits me in our new apartment.  The shower here is atrocious.  I dread showering every single day.  I’m not exaggerating at all when I say you can have a warm/hot shower, OR, you can have water pressure.  I opt for the warm, it’s like 2 degrees in the morning, I can’t have a cold shower!  Then when you get the temperature just right, it decides to burn you instead.  So then you turn the cold up just a tad, and it freezes you.  Mean while, the shower door is broken, so it doesn’t shut (letting out all that warm steam that usually keeps one warm whilst showering.  Since you’re only under a little trickle of water, one side of you is nice and warm while the other side, is hanging out of the shower stream and freezing cold.  Yes, I HATE that shower.

And we’ll have the place all to ourselves.  No waking up in the middle of the night to pee (side effect of being 37 weeks pregnant of course), only to find someone else in there and have to pop a squat in the freezing cold backyard in the rain while trying not to fall over or knee myself in the baby.

I can arrange my pantry any way I want.  No one is going to put a can of pasta sauce in the tuna row.  Or flour on the snacks shelf.

Yes, I can not wait!!!

Moral of the story though, we haven’t arranged the internet connection yet, and these things usually take way too long in the first place.  So, I’m not sure when I’ll be able to post again, but I will be back.  Maybe with a baby, maybe still pregnant.  I don’t know, but I’ll be here, surely with plenty of amusing stories when I’m back.  In the mean time, please keep voting for me, and I’ll try to keep my legs crossed so baby boy doesn’t make an appearance on moving day.

don’t forget to vote for me every day, even when I can’t post due to lack of internet (I still want to stay in the top 5!!!!!) Please please please!!!

    Be sure to note all the dirtiness they should have cleaned for you on any rental agreement papers you may have so that if you put any damage deposit down they don’t try to keep it when you move out if any of that stuff left uncleanable stains. Whatever happened to the landlord painting, changing carpets, and hiring professional cleaners between tenants?

      Yeah, I know, right!!! Don’t worry, there is a condition report that they fill out for every room in the house. Needless to say I went through it with a fine toothed comb and wrote down every nick, mark, scratch, and dirty thing. They accepted my updated condition report and I have a copy of it 🙂

    I hope you’ll like the place where you move.. You’ll have a new environment, new neighbors and new lifestyle. Generally, moving is great!

      Thanks, we do love the new place, it’s all ours, it’s cozy, it’s great! Oh, and we have a dryer now, I LOVE having a clothes dryer!

    We just got over the trauma of moving (which is always fun when you’re pregnant). We had to leave our old place IMMACULATE (carpets repaired etc) and still got charged another $250 for their cleaner to go through it again. LIVID.

    Only to discover our new real estate doesn’t have the same standards and I had to clean this place when we moved in. Doh!

    Hope you survived the move!

    • Sheri (Mommy Stuff Blogger) July 31, 2011 at 1:47 pm #

      Yeah, I don’t understand, why don’t they just take the money from the last persons bond if it’s not cleaned properly, and have cleaners come in??? My standards would probably be higher anyway. Initially that is, once I know it’s *my *mess/dirt/etc., it’s not nearly as gross!

    We lived with my husbands grandparents when we first got married, and his grandfather refused to let anyone else do work on his house, since he could do it all…unfortunately he could never keep up with the work that had to be done!! We had the same showed situation, I ended up keeping my hair cut super short until we moved out and got our own place!! Good luck and congrats on the new place!

      Thanks 🙂 and I can’t believe someone else had such a horrible shower. I’m happy to report the new shower is awesome. I never want to get out of it though!

    Good luck in your new place, and with the new little one. Love a Mommy blogger who tells it like it is! This is a great resource for parents, and I’ll be back again for sure 🙂

    Good luck with the move!

    I just discovered your blog via a friend’s facebook feed and am overjoyed. There are so many tediously dull, unfunny mummy blogs out there that on the odd occasion I find one that appeals to my sense of humour it feels like a red letter day.
