We took another step towards moving today by giving notice to our apartment managers that we intend to move within 30 days. It has been good living here the past year – but I am definitely not going to miss the loud music, the cars going by all night long, the drunken people around the pool — oh my God, I’m becoming one of ‘those’ old ladies!
When we filed our Intent to Vacate – they gave us a list of things we have to clean before we leave – and the amount of money they will take out of deposit if we don’t clean. Our deposit is $300 and we just leave it, we still get about $100 back. I’m trying to decide if it’s worth my time to do all of this cleaning – especially since I would rather have teeth drilled than clean a toilet! Pat (my hubby) has reminded me that it is better to get the full $300 back – and then I can spend it on furniture for the new house or a picture — or maybe some new clothes! So, I’ve decided that it won’t be so bad — I will supervise Pat while he cleans and I will do the final inspection — that shouldn’t be too painful – and I’ll still get to keep all of the money!
We did have to do some cleaning tonight because they want to show the apartment tomorrow to a couple who are interested in it. Somehow I got stuck cleaning the bathrooms! How did that happen? Next time I really need to be quicker about grabbing the vacuum cleaner!
