40 Days of Moving: Day 26 and 27

I was so tired by the time I got home last night I couldn’t even think about writing. First I woke up at 4:30 and finally got out of bed at 5:30. I never do that. At 7:45 the appliance company called and told me they would deliver between 12:30 and 3:30. I thought about going back to sleep, but it didn’t happen. Instead I sorted through the tool box. I really should get one of those heavy duty boxes they sell at Home Depot, but I probably wouldn’t be able to lift it. I got to the apartment about 9:30 to find Ed in conference with Bill, the maintenance man. I had asked Bill to stop by; but didn’t expect him so early. We had lots of questions about electrical outlets, lighting and problems installing anything electrical. We got lots of answers, but nothing we really wanted to hear. In order to install new electric lines you have to cut into the concrete. There is no way to feed the line through as you would with lathe and plaster. It’s a good thing I bought two new lamps; probably there will be others in my future.

While I waited for the delivery I cleaned the bathtub and the tile around it, then hung the shower curtain. This tub will have two curtains, a liner and an outer curtain, the better to hide the tub. I think it will be like taking a shower in a cave. I have a walk-in shower in my present apartment and I really enjoy it. I’d love to replace the tub with a walk-in shower, but it’s not going to happen. While I was doing this, Ed and Meg worked in the kitchen. Everything is ready for the paint sprayers who have promised to arrive early Monday morning.

I finished the day with my usual Thursday evening ESL tutoring, went out for dinner, then crawled into bed.

Haven’t done much about the apartment today. Just had lots of other things to do. BTW, I have arranged to have the gas, electricity, phone and internet turned off and phone and internet turned on in the new place. Gas and electricity are included in the monthly assessment.

  1. I wish you had posted “before” and “after” pictures of the old apartment too. This is all really great stuff. Take care of you.
