Week One In The New Apartment

As of Sunday, we have been in our new apartment for a week. And a fun week it was.

First came finding out our toilet was clogged just minutes after my parents and brother left to go home. We have it fixed finally, but for that first couple of days, we had to plunge it with every flush.

Next came the setting up of our living room. We had to move the TV stand over 2 feet. Now this wouldn’t have been bad, but our TV is HUGE! It weighs a good 100 pounds. I have no upper body strength, and I was the only one to help move it. My back was sore for 4 days because of that TV. I am never moving it again.

Unpacking wasn’t too bad. We are nearly done now, but with the back being sore, I didn’t do any unpacking for a couple of days. We even had a chance to clean out some of our stuff.

We discovered last night that one our our kitchen cabinets was held on with one screw and 8 pennies. We fixed it when we caught it, but who “fixes” a cabinet with pennies?

    Sorry to hear your back is sore. Maybe you should have moved the sofa instead of the tv. And how did they use the pennies to fix the cabinet? It’s a good thing you caught that, or it would have all come tumbling down. And it would have done that in the middle of the night just scare the heck out of you. Glad you’re getting settled in. Now relaxe and mend that back. xxxooo

    Each home you have has it’s own quirks and weirdnesses. It takes time to make friends with your new place, but think of all the memories and love you will create there. By the time you leave, you will look around and be sad to part with such a “dear friend!”
