It has been a very tiring and hard past couple of days. Still got a long way to go though. We got everything moved over here to the new house Sunday with the help of Hubby's brother Kimmet and Monday with the help of his friend from the FD Ryan. They helped with all the big stuff - other than that it was just Hubby and I. Saturday I went over there early and cut the grass, and boy was that a lot. It felt like 3 hours but when Hubby got there he said it was only like 1. He did the weed-eating and blowing and now it looks great. The grass was dead before because the owner stopped watering - but now it is getting green again. I told him I seriously don't think we can do that every week - too much work. We will see.
Last night (Monday) was our first official night sleeping here. We did not have the time or energy to hang curtains so lots of light coming in. It is very quiet over here compared to where we are used to living. The dogs love it and feel like they are wandering thru a forest or something in the back yard.
I am very concerned about 2 things though. Well actually 3 - we have a long list of stuff for hubby to fix - it was a Short-sale after all and that means AS-IS. We are working on that list slowly.
2- is I found out from our insurance guy that the house had 2 water damage claims in 2012 and they canceled our insurance so we are trying to find another one. She totally lied on the disclosures (the owner) about that and we should have been told in advance. It looks like it was repaired but out insur. guy says claims like that so close together stay on the house's record for 3 years. SHEESH
3- is I have been told by MANY-many people that there are LOTS of Coyotes in this area and they even come into your yard and jump right over the fence and get your dogs. I am very scared about that for my furry girls. One is 30 lbs and the other is 60 lbs so I don't think they will try to eat them but you never know. I have to make sure they don't go out in the back yard without me when it starts to get dark.
Yesterday I left the slider open so they could go in and out and for the second time a bird flew right into the house. The first time That happened while we were painting. I was in the Master bedroom putting stuff away and I heard the dogs barking - went in the kitchen and Mandy was trying to jump on the counter to get the bird. LOL I caught in a towel and let it out the door. It is very Rural over here being so close to the mountains.
Well Hubby has to work nights for the next 4 days or so. I just got TV and internet so at least I can watch TV tonight. I will try to muster up the energy to take the furry girls for a walk later. In the morning I have to go to the old house and clean the bathrooms, vacuum, mop and steam clean the carpets. Not looking forward to that.
That's it for now - Have a nice day.
