Well, now that the dust is settling, I think it's high time I clue everyone in on what I've been up to this week.
Some of you may have seen my Facebook status updates about moving, but have no clue where or why. For that, you need a little back story.
Sometime a couple of months ago, my buddy Efren mentioned that he was looking to get an apartment and was asking me for recommendations. I pointed him towards a couple of different places, but after thinking about it and talking with Emily, I decided to offer splitting a 2 bedroom with Efren, thereby saving us both some cash. He was excited at the offer, and we started the process shortly after that.
Sometime in the middle of November, we took a visit to The Bordeaux and looked at the one unit they had open (2 bed/2 bath). We were both pleased with the apartment and with the terms, so we ended up applying. This last Monday, we met at the leasing office here and signed our lease and started the move-in right away. I had scheduled Wednesday through Friday off to handle moving out of my old place and cleaning it to avoid losing my deposit, but I ended up working Monday evening and Tuesday evening to get the primary necessities (is that redundant?) moved.
During the move, I had to terminate my internet service at the old place and schedule an installation of it at the new place. Luckily, I was able to get AT&T's uVerse service for $20 less than I was paying for the same speed DSL each month. The installation was scheduled for sometime between 1:00PM and 3:00PM on the 3rd, which was Thursday, but the installer didn't call to say he was on the way until sometime after 6:00PM. I had a lot of packing and moving and cleaning stuff to get done at the old place and had planned to head back over there to do just that after 3:00PM, since the internet would have been installed. But no, I didn't get back over there until sometime after 7:00PM. Grr.
Well, the kinks have all been worked out and Efren and I have moved in to the new place. I still have about 4 Rubbermaid tubs to unpack yet, but after spending all of today cleaning I just have no motivation to touch it. I told Emily that I would get it all done tomorrow morning, but I don't know that I'll get all of it done. We'll see.
So yeah, that's it in a nutshell. I'll get some pictures of this new place after I get everything unpacked. If you're in Houston and would like to see the place though, let me know.
