Making Room to Show

Filed under: General — Neil Aitken @ 11:14 am

My landlord just informed me that he would like to show my place tonight to potential tenants — I said it would be ok, but still it’s going to be a headache. Right now it’s a disaster site — books and boxes everywhere in the front room, clothing everywhere in the bedroom, and lots of loose papers floating around. And I’m out of cleaning supplies. But hey, I need a good kick to keep up with the schedule if I’m going to be able to move out on time.

Still to do:

  • post furniture pics to Craigslist
  • buy cleaning supplies
  • drop off more clothes to Salvation Army
  • check with post office on how much sending my books through the mail will actually cost me

I’d actually rather be reading submissions for Boxcar Poetry Review (and I did manage to fit that in last night and this morning), but I’ll have to leave the fun stuff for later.

    Moving is so not fun. I’m not looking forward to packing etc etc etc. On the one hand, I suppose it’s not as stressful if we were trying to show a house to sell–we live in apts too. But then again, if we were trying to sell, that would mean we were paying our own mortgage, instead of someone else’s. I look forward to the change a move brings though. Good luck!
