It’s been very quiet around here (on the blog, in real-life…). Very quiet. In fact, I’m having trouble sleeping it’s soooo quiet in the house! I may need to invest in a sound machine.
Yesterday was our first joint work day. Let me tell you, it was awesome waking up and getting ready and even leaving at the same time. We now have two full bathrooms, on the same floor, and are not in each other’s way. I even made breakfast for both of us, which we ate together.
We met with the landlords this evening to turn in our keys and go over any issues. I lived in the apartment for 3 years. THREE YEARS. It had BEIGE carpet in the living room, which was not the cleanest in the world. I admit that I’m at fault for at least part of it, but it’s not completely my fault that the carpet should be replaced. Our landlord was not letting up about the carpet (I had a talk with her yesterday and knew that this was coming.) She also was not a fan of the oven. She said she’d have to clean that. Well, it’s the only thing that she has to clean in the whole place – once the carpet is replaced in one room.
Keep your fingers crossed that we get at least half of our deposit back. That’s money we could use, and I have a feeling that this battle is not going to end in my favor.
