I would like to piggyback off of Stephanie's earlier post concerning the garage. I can't wait until we are able to pull up the house and park in our garage. When we lived in PA all the parking in our area was street parking, that meant we'd sometimes have to park around the corner or all the way down the street because there was no parking. I hated it! When moving to Charlotte, I thought the parking situation would be better here since each little cul de sac had an ample amount of parking. I was wrong. In the complex where we live now all the tenants are supposed to park one car up front and one in the back to be considerate to the other tenants. Of course this doesn't happen. We have our neighbors right next to us with three cars that always have to be parked directly in front of their unit. This wouldn't even be such a bad thing if any of them knew how to park! I mean seriously you can't pull in between the lines without being on some type of angle?
Then we have our other neighbors that also have three cars and must always park directly in the front of our place btw since they live on the side of us. Our unit is on the end and the other units across the walk way extend beyond where ours stop. Along with their three cars they always have two and three cars worth of company that never park on the back row either. Now don't get me wrong, my neighbors are all nice people and we get along just fine, they just aren't parking considerate. I will just be so excited to pull up to the house with a million bags (as usual) and be able to back into the garage and unload without having to do extra duty by lugging them across the parking lot.
I am sooooooo happy to say we are about 85% finished packing and cleaning!!! YAY! I would like to thank my awesome hubby who got out of bed after only getting 4 hours of sleep to help me. Hubby works about 80 hours a week and sleep is hard to come by as it is for him without the moving drama. But to stop me from panicking about not being done in time he and the boy (reluctantly) jumped in and got it done. We have all the rooms with exception to our room (1/2 done) and some minor things in the living room and kitchen packed up!!! We started around 3pm and didn't stop until 8pm then hubby had to turn around and go to work. He thinks I didn't feel bad for him but I really did and I would like to just share with you guys that I have been blessed to have an awesome husband and my kids have a great father!
Closing is on Wednesday @9 am and I received final word on Thursday that everything is all done and the amount I needed to bring to closing was $353.98. I said thank you Jesus! I was excited when I thought it was the $1132 but I was floored when she told me only $353.98.
Happy Father's Day to all my e-neighbors! I'm off to make hubby's favorite...banana pudding...lol
