Slowly, but surely we are becoming settled in our new house. We still have many things to unpack, but the process is moving along. It would go a lot faster if two situations were remedied before our move.
1. The previous owners cleaned the place before they moved.
2. We had proper organizational furniture e.g. bookcases.
When I mention cleaning the place, I mean it in the loosest of terms. While we used a carpet steamer several times and we used a feather duster which would have made French maids jealous, I did not expect this from the previous occupants. I did expect them to dispose of all the trash they left in the garage. I was also hoping the dish washer would not be full of their cups and spoons. And maybe I was asking too much of them to not leave two used and full litter boxes. I do not need to bring in a panel of judges on this one; I’m going to call it a dick move to leave complete and utter garbage to the people you just sold a house.
The other, previously mentioned snag is our lack of useful furniture like bookcases. Normally, I would not care about having appropriate furniture. Stacked milk crates make awesome bookcases and desks. With everything scattered about though, it will slow down other goals like installing a fireman’s pole off the balcony.
Inspiration for a fireman’s pole came from Ghostbusters, easily one of the greatest movies ever which can be watched on YouTube. No word on whether we will get an old ambulance to become Ecto-1, although my current room mate is in need of a new vehicle.
