After about an hour, the never ending papers to sign were done and we were finally handed the keys. Like most new homeowners, we immediately drove to the house to
The movers were supposed to show up between 8 and 9 am on Friday, but no such luck. The house was warm when I showed up that morning, but I had too much on my mind to even worry about it. When the movers finally showed up around 11:30 (better late than never, right?), the first thing they did was remove all the doors from the hinges. It got pretty hot in the house as the day went on, but I figured it was just because the house was wide open. I still wasn't worried about the lack of cool air. I mean, it's a new house, I just assumed everything would work perfectly. Oh boy was I wrong. I will get back to that in a minute though.
The day went on and box after box was slowly introduced into the new house. We had my in-laws coming in town for the long weekend, so I was frantically trying to unpack the kitchen. I have no idea why, but I felt like as long as the kitchen is neat and all put away that it wouldn't matter if that rest of the house was a total wreck. In the end, I was able to get everything unpacked. My Mother in-law showed up and took care of London so I was able to unpack and organize in peace. It worked out really well. While I was unpacking, the movers were finishing up. It was then that I realized we were missing two pretty important things. Our washer and dryer were MIA.
How do you lose a washer and dryer? Well our movers did it. They also lost our big leather storage ottoman, the tray for London's highchair, and the second box of our pots and pans (and that is just from the kitchen). They have since found the washer, dryer, and ottoman, but no signs of anything else. I haven't unpacked everything yet, so I am really hoping some to that stuff shows up, but it's not looking too promising. They will be coming back tomorrow to deliver the rest of our stuff. Let's just hope they "found" a few more boxes of stuff too.
Ok so back to the A/C. Well Friday night was hot...and COLD! Our house is two stories and each floor has its own a/c unit. Well the one of the bottom floor wasn't cooling so it was about 85 degrees, however the top floor wouldn't stop cooling so it was about 64 degrees. It was too hot to sleep downstairs and too cold to sleep upstairs. First thing the next morning, in true Aly fashion, I called and complained. On Saturday, they came out and "fixed it" but in actuality they managed to messed it up worse. At about 7pm that night, it stopped working all together. Thankfully it was not a hot weekend so it stayed a
Finally today, they came out and really FIXED it. Or did they?? Today, my house wouldn't cool beyond 78 degrees during the heat of the day. The A/c guy will be back out first thing in the morning. UGH!! This is getting a bit ridiculous. This is a NEW house. This is a NEW A/C unit. This is NOT cool (pun intended).
To leave you, here are a few pictures from this weekend.
