Just Being Honest

Although I have a really great attitude about this little adventure (for the most part), I must be honest about a few things.

I spent all day yesterday and today unpacking and organizing and it's still not done, and it probably won't ever be done.

I was so proud of Jane for eating all 5 chicken nuggets at Wendy's when little did I know she'd chuck them all up 30 minutes later. It took forever to clean up that mess.

I miss my home (where do I start with that one).

My apartment has these weird stenches that I can't get rid of.

I've cleaned the fridge and freezer 3 times with 3 different cleaners and put 3 boxes of baking soda inside and it still reaks!

Whoever the apartment people pay to paint the walls needs to be fired. There is a border of paint on the carpet throughout the entire apartment.

The apartment advertised "granite countertops" and that's the only thing going for it.

I haven't taken a warm shower since last Friday because the gas isn't hooked up (mental note for next move...call the gas guy before the move).

I miss a pantry in my kitchen and drawers in my bathroom. apartments. ugh.

The good news is.....ONLY 6 MONTHS!

I can do this!

I hope I made you laugh, because I'm laughing as I am rereading this.

I am so there with you! I forgot just how terrible moving (especially unpacking!) is. Don't worry... it will get done within about two weeks. I found myself yesterday actually being able to enjoy the afternoon, instead of worrying about what to unpack. Have you contacted the management about the problems??? You have to keep on these people. Don't worry... you can live anywhere for 6 months! Believe me, I have! Hang in there!

You can do it! And go yell at those apartment people....being nice doesn't work. Chin up!

BE STRONG! Like your friend Lindsay said you really can live anywhere for 6 months.

i'm laughing only becuase i know how you love high end hotels and things like that, so maybe this is just a test of will power or some sick joke the universe is playing on you. either way you can do anything for 6 months. ;) love you tiff. miss your guts.

Sounds like you got some drama going on!

We missed you last night at our presidency meeting! With your talents, I'm sure that apartment will look and smell better shortly! We're looking forward to seeing you on the 26th!
