I have moved

Thursday, March 13, 2014

If anything could go wrong it did on my moving day. First when i sign lease I found out that the lovely first floor apartment I had wanted had a serious plumbing problem so they had to give me a second floor apartment. That was OK it was even nicer than the one I had wanted.
Second they called me last minute and told me I would have a truck, so i called around and it was indeed to late to get one. so we packed up the cars and carried all the small stuff to the apartment, then i called everyone i know no one with a truck or van could help so we tied my queen size pillow top mattress and box springs on top of my ford contour. I drove from Indiana to Blue Island IL with a huge mattress on top of my car.
Then I had already scheduled my internet to be installed and they couldn't seem to get new address right in the system they kept sending installers to the wrong place and I had to live with out internet for over a week. It was a frustrating week.
But I love my apartment, we got everything here despite the problems and nothing got broken. It took me longer than planned to get settled but i did and I learned that I can be quite resourceful when i need to be.
Now I live alone, can entertain my friend when I want to, sleep when i want to and even make noise in the day time. I am enjoying my new life. Tomorrow I am setting up my videos so i can restart my exercise program. Today I walked a bit. I am terrible out of shape so i will need to work up to where i was but i have no doubt i will be successful.

    I hope you enjoy Blue Island. I grew up on the South Side in Evergreen Park, IL - not too far from there. Now I am in the western suburbs.
