Yesterday I had groceries delivered, so the kitchen is pretty well stocked now.
They came to get the chair. They charged me the $99 delivery fee and 10% restocking fee.
A plumber came to measure and give me an estimate for a taller toilet and a hand held shower head.
The original guy that does work for another house flipper Kendra knows had to back out due to being too busy. So I called a plumber that had 5 stars. Didn’t know much about them except their name.
They came out and measured. Then came back with a price of over $1200.
I was about to sign on the dotted line, but decided to call Kendra first. She said: “Are we talking twelve hundred dollars.”
I said yes. That infuriated her. So I handed the plumber the phone so he could talk to her. Obviously she told him no.
I still had to pay them $100 for coming out and giving me an estimate.
Kendra rounded up a plumber and said they’d both be here on Monday morning.
She said she’d go out herself and buy the supplies (tall toilet and handheld shower head). I suppose if she can move a 300 bathtub she can probably manage a toilet in a box. She does have a good dolly for those kinds of jobs.
Night 2 Sleeping In My Old Recliner:
Night 2 I slept again in my chair. It really isn’t bad to sleep in. Much better than the couch, I found.
Of course to inflate the mattress we had to have Wifi, and the cable guy came out yesterday morning.
The manager from the moving company said he’d come yesterday to try and get the bed inflated. And he did.
He got the whole thing set up, and then helped Teri move 2 pieces of heavy furniture. Thanks, Jeremy! For going above and beyond.
Teri told Jeremy that she was not aware that beds had to have Wifi these days. He told her that she’d be surprised at how many they make now that do need it.
This morning, on Day 3, the kitties are now both eating, exploring the apartment and sniffing everything.
Ivy’s back to hissing. They fight over my lap from time to time. Both of their cat towers/trees are in my bedroom in front of the patio door there. And there are lots of squirrels and birds for them to watch.
Bird Feeders Positioned All Around Me:
I’ve already seen several bird feeders in neighbors’ yards around me.
I’ll bring out the bird bath when it’s warm enough. Then the birds can dine all around me and then come get a drink and bathe here.
Teri doesn’t come on weekends, but Kasi is going to be here around noon. I’ll have her help unpack and break down boxes for the dumpster.
Mostly what I do is roll around on my little ancient rolling garden cart and take things out of boxes.
I had forgotten to take the gate remote to the manager’s office when I left last Wednesday. So I did that yesterday afternoon.
I got a gate remote for here that now works. The first one didn’t. So I’m now parked inside the gate.
Sleeping In My Bed:
I slept in my bed last night, which was nice.
There is still lots to do.
I don’t know how on earth I managed to cram that much stuff into a one bedroom apartment. Because it looks like it’s going to be hard to fit everything into this two bedroom apartment.
Teri jokingly calls me a pack rat. And I suppose she’s right about that. She said the next time she travels she may have me pack for her because I can sure pack a lot of things into a small space.
Teri has a boyfriend with a big motorcycle, and they join other couples with motorcycles and travel the country from time to time. In all kinds of weather. She’s braver than I am.
I ordered a small set of red pots and pans yesterday.
Still haven’t found my camera case. It has my camera and lenses in it. It’s not small, so I should come across it pretty soon.
