trials and tribulations

why can’t moving be easy? you know, box up belongings, transport them and unpack. that’s it.

it just can’t be easy for us. first, we had the satellite/internet debacle. now, the contractors the seller hired to install new windows are awol. they were there friday and saturday, and put in two new windows minus the frame. i was okay with that because they were coming back. really, they were. we called our realtor today because we’re a little annoyed. redoing the windows was in our contract, and we thought that letting them finish after the closing was nice of us. i can’t finish putting up the fixtures in my bathroom until they frame that window, which means no place to hang my towels. it’s a sad state of affairs, and it just makes my house look bad.

our realtor was not a happy person when joe called her today, and she immediately called the seller’s realtor, who said that the contractors were supposed to finish yesterday. they have no idea where they are or what the deal is. i don’t know if i mentioned it before, but the seller said he has gone through two contractors just trying to finish this house up.

so, now i have a bathroom missing a towel rack, mismatched windows and ugly markings where the former frames were. but, at least i now have the internet!

    Hey there! I’m paying a visit after your own, and I’m in love with your beautiful website, these colours are gorgeous. ♥ Moving home is horribly stressful… but it’ll definitely work itself out soon. And having the internet? Bonus!

    It’s nice to meet you. 😀

    Dealing with all this crap is just part of moving I guess. It sucks, but it must be done. I just hope those contractors show up someday!
