Today, we moved every single thing out of our apartment and into Al's parents' house. After that, we went back to the apartment and cleaned everything from top to bottom. Throughout the day, we found a lot of gross things. For example, I came across garlic....from last year. I won't go into detail about what it looked like, but I will tell you that at least it didn't smell!
We finished around 4:30. Al may go back to the apartment tomorrow to check it over one last time for the final inspection (we want ALL of our security bond back), but I'm never stepping foot in there again. Let's put it this way. We had a lot of wonderful memories in that place. It was our first home together. Regardless, it's time to move on! I could write an endless list of all of the problems there are with that building.
When we got to Penny and Jamie's house (Al's parents), they left us in charge of prepping the potatoes for dinner. Al wanted to play on his computer more than he wanted to do anything with the food, so I peeled and chopped all of them. This may not seem like a big deal for most people, but this was a huge accomplishment for me. I never knew how to peel a potato properly. I always held it the wrong way, and it would take forever. With a quick lesson from Al, I peeled all of them quickly and efficiently. I am so proud! And yes, after all of that moving, you betcha I had a glass of wine!
