Whine Alert

I'm so tired!!! Can I be done now???? PPPLLLEEEAAASSSSSSSSSEEE??? Doodles room is almost done, kitchen, living room -- I just have to hang pictures...my room I still have boxes to unpack, but isn't the mom room always the last to be done?!?!? I have to finish, you are not nice!

This apartment has got to be smaller than my last one because I am so not happy with how my living room is shaping up. I'll get over it, but putting it all together is not putting a smile on my face........I know, I know, fireplace...santa...BWEE!

So, here is the final living room product: at least at of 1:30 pm this afternoon...best its gonna get I think. So small compared to what I had in the last apartment....I will hang stuff on the wall soon :)
The Move...I hired movers, to move and pack. They showed up about 8:15ish with no boxes. Thankfully I had some to start with, someone brought some about 20 minutes later. Slow as molasses on a cold Vermont day!!! I packed all of Doodles room, all the bathroom, pretty much all my room - what they did in my room was throw everything that was left in one large box, and when I say throw I mean throw. My PC they packed halfway decently, but I took the monitor in my car. I packed up the CDs and movies. Pretty much that left them the kitchen....why did it take them over 4 hours??? I don't know. I have 2 things that I found broken in the boxes, not thrilled. We got to the new apartment and they got my bed (less than a year old bed) up and into my room and the mattress has a hole in it. They are supposed to be contacting be about replacing it.

So, lesson --- I think it is just better to do it yourself, the packing that is. It was much better than trying to haul the stuff myself :) I just do not know if I would recommend this moving company to anyone. The guys were nice enough, but OY!

Hmmm... it looks fine to me... though I guess it's kinda hard to to picture the complete room since a photo only captures 1/2 of it. It will look much more cozy when the pictures are up. Where's the tv?

i was standing next to it (in my bedroom door)...I can walk between the couch and loveset, between the ouch and tv, and behind the couch - cozy is the word I will go with. :)

SO, O'Fallon, MO and St Peters, MO are both on the "Top 50 Places To Live in the US" list...I was out and about shopping the last few days picking up this and that for the apartment (couch covers seen in the pix among other things) and HELLO White Trash!!! Thankfully Rob-tard and him telling me all about the alky wife & the alky family prepared me so I was prepared for some trash, but this is ridiculous!!!

not dressed that badly...BUT, uhhhh ya know those people who live in the city but look as if they are from hicksville USA --- yeah plenty of those and a few stumbly bumble people, made me want to ask if it was time to hit the bottle?? Someone should have told me...Damn I hate when I am late to a party, but apparently I am always gonna be late to this one LOL And one lady who thinks it is ok to scream, no literally SCREAM, at her maybe 3 year old in the middle of a store...I have spoken loudly to Doodles, but I have never shaken him and screamed like this lady.....hello child protective???? NO, ok!! UGH

Ugh. That is the worst. I hated having to stand by while parents mistreated their young children in front of me!

Your description sounds kinda like what we see when we venture onto the Tulalip Indian Reservation. Needless to say, we don't go often.

Oh, I was so close to stepping in but then I remembered what I have heard about the police in this area...UGH!!! At least I was a little prepared for what type of people live out here considering Rob-tard and his "wife"'s family all live out here. I admit I was kinda expecting them to be exception and not the rule, guess not....

So, are you liking it more yet? Did you get a new mattress and box springs? Maybe I should just keep reading instead of asking these questions.

Jury is still out...it's better, but there is just not a lot of room for the balls to zing past my head or for the feet to move fast enough to get out of the way of the army trucks who are destroying the world as we know it.........


The mantra is: own bathrooms (he bought Dove for Men LOL) no more toothpaste in the morning to deal with for me. Santa can get in through the fireplace -- mainly the toothpaste thing LOL
