Can you not negotiate another two weeks until May 30th?
Take it drawer by drawer, box by box, room by room and finally - it will be Karrie's home -
A place to call home and in which to make memories.
Thanks Curiosity. The possession date was part of the negotiations, much like everything else. We got a higher price for being willing to move sooner. It means more money for my new kitchen, appliances, etc. So, I guess I really shouldn't complain TOO loudly.
And I'm lucky. A company move means that we get movers, fully paid for by the company, and I managed to twist my realestate agent's arm into paying to have this place properly cleaned once we move, so I don't have to fuss with windows and cupboards and such. So, all in all, I pretty much just get to walk away from this place with a minimum of work.
my new place is overwhelming, but I think you're right. taking it room by room, and prioritizing, will help a lot. Naturally, the first room being done is the bathroom, since there are mold issues (a typical 70's house, it has a window in the bathtub, brilliant idea). I already have some neat ideas for how I hope to paint it, if only I can convince my hubby. lol.
Same goes for the kitchen. Because it has to be gutted, I get to design what it will be replaced with. I've never gotten to do that before. For the summer, my kitchen will likely be in my garage, while we fix up the one in the house. lol. It should be doable.
I just need to focus now on finishing my courses. After that, I can stress about the move. lol.
