We got it!

Yay we got the apartment. We should be getting the keys on May 29th. Ah I feel much more relieved now and much more excited all at the same time. Its pretty cool to have your own address.

Now the spending of the money begins. We've already given the damage deposit and I'm going to get the money for first months rent but there is many things to do yet. The first grocery run is going to be expensive. There is power, phone, TV and internet to hook up plus undoubtedly a huge number of things that I can't think of.

On the other side of the coin is the free stuff. I can't believe how generous people can be. We should probably try to figure out how to thank people. My mom is giving us a couch, love seat, chair, kitchen chairs, kitchen stuff like bowls and probably a bunch more. My uncle was using that couch, love seat and chair so they are kinda donated by him too. Lindsay's mom is giving us an electric frying pan, slow cooker, some other kitchen stuff, and some groceries. My dad is giving us a 27" TV. Lindsay's grandma is giving us a kitchen table. My grandparents are giving us a microwave. Lindsay's friend is giving us an entertainment unit for the TV. There is probably a bunch of stuff I missed but its tough to keep track of it all. A big thanks to everyone.

Now I just need to find some lackey's to help move. I know I've moved quite a few people and now its your turn. I'm looking at Mark, my uncle and Kerri and Scott. Too bad Mark won't be in town, although he doesn't have a truck anymore. I'm sure there will be no problem as there really isn't' that much stuff to move. Vehicles shouldn't be a problem as I have a truck, so does Tim, and my grandfather. My uncle has a minivan and Tristan at work offered up a 3-ton cube van if we need it. So everyone keep in mind the weekend of June 3rd and 4th because I could always use some movers.

It's always cool getting free stuff from your family when you move out. Moving, however, is not something I enjoy doing, yet I've done it five times in the past 18 months or so.

Good luck with the new place.

Good for you. The first month the money just flies out of your bank account!

I have never had to move. The last time I moved I was two years old. This should be quite the experience for me. I'm hoping that by the end I'm not curled up in the fetal position somewhere sobbing.

Jacqui I cannot wait(sarcasm). It goes against my scottish roots.

James said...

Well congrats Zack!

It may feel like your scottish ancestors are rolling in thier graves with the money you'll put out but in a few months it'll become routine (or as close as routine gets)

On the 3rd and 4th of June I work from 6:30 AM till 3 PM. If you need a hand in the evenings with cleaning the place before you move in I can help you out.

Remember to start checking off your list of what you have and what you need.

Hopefully we'll have the keys by May 29th so we can do the cleaning in the evenings before we have to move everything.
