Let Go

I don't think I have yet mentioned the construction on our apartment building, mostly because I was trying to convince myself that it wouldn't really happen.  Our manager came to us about a month ago and let us know that our windows were going to be replaced.  The glory of our shitty little apartment is that we have gorgeous floor to ceiling windows.  So they're basically replacing a whole wall.

Consequently, Hubby and I were asked to move all of our stuff at least six feet from the wall (did I mention how small our effing apartment is??) and to move into temporary housing for a week while our parking spot was taken away, our door code and garage code was changed (without giving us the new codes).  Oh and we have also been enjoying the 7am wake up calls courtesy of the hammers and drills of the construction team.  It has been a frustrating experience to say the least.

And yesterday, we went through our cozy little one bedroom and basically turned it upside down, unplugged everything, moved every piece of furniture, and covered everything with tarps and blankets.  I was going to take photos but it was just too depressing

The blinds are mostly closed now that there's
ugly scaffolding outside
But, ulimately, there is nothing that we can do about it.  So we settled into our even smaller temporary studio apartment, and I will grit my teeth through the next seven days and try not to think about the fact that strangers are tromping past my china cabinet and drilling next to my brand new bedframe.  And, although it is clearly not my strong point, I will try my best to let go. Pin It


  1. Oh good luck girl! We have seemed to only pick places that are under construction and it is so frustrating! If you can let go, you are way better than I am!

  2. do you handle it? I'm trying not to get angry, but it's a constant struggle.


Leave me some love. Your comments warm my heart!
