I'm sitting here right now listening to the title song by U2 on repeat with tears rolling down my face.
The Guy had a day off, so he was awake for a while and is napping right now. I don't think he has actually gotten out of bed aside from a bathroom run, but I don't care.
As for me?
I called the plumber. Arranged for him to come over on Wednesday.
Then I called the gas company. They will also be over on Wednesday to turn the gas on. The customer service rep was SO NICE. The gas was turned off because my job contract ended a few months after my dad died, so my brother said he'd help take care of the bills. But right after that, it was looking like I would get the house, so his method of "taking care of the bills" was to not pay them until the utilities were cut off. But when I talked to the customer service rep, she said that because I was starting a new account and it was cut off because my father was deceased, she would just ignore that and start the new account. I didn't have to pay the $450 or so balance from before (like I had to for the water), which helped with costs of moving.
I have MY NEW REFRIGERATOR scheduled to be delivered on Thursday! I am SO EXCITED about this!
I also scheduled a heating/AC company to inspect and do any maintenance and repair on the heating and AC units on Thursday. I have a feeling there will be some repairs needed (Ugh!) but honestly, I can deal with this.
All I need to do now is schedule the cable company to come out and hook up the cable and internet. But first I am thinking of buying a new tv so I can get HD service since Dad's old tvs are...old. Seriously, we had one since the mid-80's. I just need to discuss with The Guy what kind of plan we're on now, and then with Jezi what kind of plan we want since we both don't watch a lot of tv but DVR service would be nice.
The Guy is still in bed. I have made all kinds of progress on moving out.
Bono, you are SO right...
"You love this town even if that doesnít ring true
Youíve been all over and itís been all over you
It's a beautiful day,
Don't let it get away
It's a beautiful day,
Touch me, take me to that other place
Teach me love, I know Iím not a hopeless case..."
Now excuse me while I go find a box of tissues and have a good thorough happy cry.
