The Best Laid Plans...

...can still go to pot.

Really, I had every single detail worked out for my move.  But it seems that Murphy strikes at every turn.  Sorry to whine, but I just need to let it out.  I've been at the house every day, but still haven't officially moved.  Here's why:
  • It turns out I need a completely new roof.  Like, NOW!!!! Works starts on it next week.
  • The backyard needs to be fenced in before I can move the pups into the house.  The contractor for this little project is currently M.I.A.  Surprise, surprise.
  • It turns out that my front outside light is a fire hazard. 
  • My insurance agent isn't amazingly confident that my electric is up to code...and has scheduled an inspection for next Wednesday.  Apparently, I need to take another day off of work!
  • NONE of my furniture has been delivered yet.  Mind you, I'm starting small - just a living room set and a new kitchen table, which somehow makes it all the more frustrating that they haven't arrived yet.  The latest is that the living room set will arrive on October 9th, and the table should show up at some point next week.
  • A friend of a friend is giving me their washer and dryer.  That hasn't arrived yet.
  • The fridge I ordered won't arrive until October 2nd.
  • All the painting in the house is going excrusiatingly slow.
  • JC was supposed to help me move...but won't be home for at least another week.
Yep, I'm frustrated.  And a little overwhelmed. Sigh.


  1. Oh no! Sounds like it's crazy stressful over there for you. Here's hoping things start going your way soon!

  2. Hang in a few months you'll forget how bad it was and just remember it was a pain - kind of like go ahead whine a little bit every homeowner has their story and has whined abt it, so we understand!

  3. Breathe.

    IT WILL get done. Think about the finished result. Then hopefully you can laugh at all this. Ok, maybe not. Hang in there!

  4. Just think, it can't get any worse! You'll get through this and it'll all be worth it in the end :-)

  5. Ugh! So sorry! I think you should wait for him to get home so that he can help you move! After everything you have done for him ... yeah, I say wait!

  6. Oh dear, so sorry it's not all going according to plan. I know it will all be worth it when you're all settled in!

  7. Hang in there! It sounds really stressful but you'll get through it!

  8. Ahh! I hate things like this - so stressful! Sending you HUGS!! I hope everything gets straightened out asap!! xoxo

  9. Need help today? Painting? Let me know!

  10. Moving sucks! Blah! It will be worth it once you are in your new house though. Good luck!

  11. I know how you feel. We just finish moving a month ago and it seemed like it would never end. Every day I wished I could just fast forward to when everything was all done and I could just enjoy our new place. It's frustrating, but hang in there and it'll all get done.


  12. Home ownership is very overwhelming! Hang in there girl!
