So why all the sudden blog posts? Why the outpour of photos? We have to move to a lower level apartment (good ole heart, paired with high risk pregnancy), which started a several month quest for a first floor available within our complex. Then suddenly, our downstairs neighbors moved out! Let's just move down stairs! How easy would that be!
Then the apartment policy came up: for transfers; they view the current unit, as is, so as to avoid moving one problem unit to another unit. Understandable. But oh-my-God! You've seen my photos! I can't have them in here!! They might evict just because of the current state of chaos, and that's before packing to move chaos! Eeeeks!!
*** I AM SICK AND TIRED OF LIVING THIS WAY! I WILL NOT TOLERATE IT ANY LONGER!! ***
I have asked friends and family for help (watching kiddos while hubby and I purge, pack, and stack... or cleaning and packing) and help asap. We already took all the yardsale items [another project] out of the house and brought them to storage for the next 2 weeks until the yardsale. We've bagged a few bags of donatables. We've cleaned up the daily mess and attacked our mountain of laundry. (Albeit now a mountain of clean laundry -- need someone to fold and hang because I can't.) We've purged an entire closet of things.
This is all such good progress! But it's not enough. After the hectic weekend, help has said to come. We are hoping that the beginning of next week, we will be in a position to move forward with the apartment transfer process and allow them into the home once it's tolerable.
