And, she's off!

Getting things started for moving, that is. I got the keys today and took a few boxes over. That kitchen is the stuff dreams are made of. Seriously, I have more cabinets and shelves and drawers in that kitchen than I've had in two or three kitchens combined. I put some stuff away today that's been in storage for over a year. I can have my MIXER out! Woot! I can actually use my appliances without having to try and decide where to move the stuff so I can use the appliance. I'm excited!

The lady on the other side is a single mom of an 11-year old. He helped me bring in some boxes tonight and that was very nice of me. He's a big boy - almost as big as I am. I'm sure the kids make fun of him because of his size so I made sure to tell him how much I appreciated his help. I didn't have any cash to give him but I said that I'd make sure that if he was around to help me next time, I'd have a few bucks for him. I'm sure he'll appreciate it. He rides Isaiah's bus and seems to think Isaiah's a cute kid. That's a vote in his favor for sure. :)

Looking forward to being totally moved. February 11th is when those I can round up will be here. Won't be many but they're prepared to get it done. I should have a lot done before then by going each night after work and working this weekend, too.

I think I'm going to be tired.

Found four great chairs that are dark wood like the table that I'm getting from Ron's ex-wife. They were nearly new and $50 each. Padded seat and high back - perfect for Ron.

The landlord is going to have to put in a tall toilet for Ron... He had a hard time getting up without my help. I asked him if he'd mind doing it and I'd pay for it. Gotta do what I need to do for the man to be able to function when I'm not home to help.  I think he is a very nice landlord. We are blessed to have found it.

Until later...

I hope things continue to move along as they are now. You both deserve to have some better times. I feel that way about the people who manage and own my apartment complex. It is a huge complex, but somehow or other, they manage to be there when I need help and they are always ready to ask after my health and happiness when I stop by to leave my rent. GOOD people

May you be surrounded by good people. Old friends AND new.

Dearest Teresa,
Oh, start moving in!!!
I can guess it must be tiring to go over many times after work. But I am really happy to hear that you have a nice neighbor and landlord. We are having unusual snow here today and ccld, please take care of yourself☆☆☆
And again, "ganbatte!!!"
Lots of love and hugs to you, xoxo Miyako*

I am so jealous of your kitchen, just hearing about it. Mine is tiny and primitive. Pace yourself and enjoy!

I have been reading along, but haven't been able to comment. Now that my son is back from his two week vacation, he has fixed the problem (he has a back door into my computer and just goes in and fixes whatever). The move sounds like it will solve a lot of problems. Wish I was there to help! I actually like to organize and move ..... as long as itis not me moving!

Great that you can get in and start putting the kitchen together. It always seems that takes the most boxes! Sounds like your landlord is very accommodating as well. Nice!
