Final Phase of New Home 2020 is underway.
We closed on the townhome 9/4. We decided to have an odd wall between the smallish formal living room and family room removed ($981) and had the main living areas painted along with kitchen cabinets painted ($2,500). Movers were last week for $760 (definitely worth it as we haven't moved in 15 years and in that time my significant other and our parents have all aged a lot)!
Monday we have the cleaners coming in at the OH (old house) $200 estimated, and the final work done by our contractor (installation of toilet/mirror/exhaust fan and light in bathrooms; exterior storm door installation; finishing up two missing floor boards; a new cabinet bottom in the kitchen under the sink and installation of 24" of trim). So this weekend we run and pick up online orders and stain things.
Tuesday is pictures and Wednesday is listing day.
I was also offered a long-term sub contract through December in a special ed classroom I worked in at the beginning of the year. I was reluctant to accept it given COVID, but its a classroom of four kids in person with one remote (grades 2-4). They are in person 8:15-12:15 and then in the afternoon its just remote support and curriculum support.
It is timely given our money situation is still "smoke and mirrors" and "living on a wish and a prayer" and "robbing to Peter to pay Paul when they are one in the same". Thankfully I've had a line of credit extended by my parents and will hopefully have the equity from the home sale in our hot little mitts soon!
Hope that all is well with everyone; I'm going to catch up on the blog reading now.
