So yah, everyone warned me homebuying was stressful. Well, actually, I dont think I was properly warned about all this stuff that comes with buying the home. Buying it was easy, just signed the paper. All this other crap. well. crap.
So this morning first thing I did was call USAA to tell them that NO for the 6th time I DID NOT steal my credit/debit card and that YES i really did want to spend that much money on ceiling fans!
Once we established THAT, I called the fan company so I could pay for the fans I had selected yesterday when USAA stopped my cards and wasnt open because it was Sunday.
Then I went to Yoga Sculpt. ah. the best part of my whole day. Finished with a greens and berries protein shake <3 soooo delicious and filling [and thank goodness because i didnt get another chance to get food until 5pm!]
So then I get home and I call the water//gas//electric companies to have the name on the account switched from the builder to mine. Well, each number had a thirty minute wait on the phone — not to mention that I spent 15 minutes or more with each company just to GET to a person to be on HOLD for that half an hour. Luckily Gas and Electric both had a courtesy where they put you in line and call you back when its your time. So here I am waiting on the phone with the water company because they have no such courtesy and the Gas company calls back. I was able to take care of all the Gas info and then go BACK to the water call where i was STILL on hold!!! geez. I finally got a person and the figured it all out but seriously, how slow. As soon as I hung up with water, Electricity called me back so I was able to do that as well.
While I was on the phone with electricity the fan-installer-man called me and so did the furniture man from one of the consignment shops — They were both scheduled to do their work // delivery on Tuesday but had cancellations and could they come today? why, YES! Originally all I was going to get was the washer/dryer/ table today from RC Willey.
Well. Mr Fan man got there first. Super hippie dude, into yoga. My kind of person. He was way nice and we got along well, not to mention my fans rock. Here are 2 of the 4
Within the first hour of Fan Man being there i had THREE people come by trying to sell me their Home Alarm Systems — not to mention the 6 business cards that had been left in my front door!! I narrowed it down to three [2 of which are ADT] and am currently playing them off each other to see what I can get for the best. Honestly these people are so aggressive though and it was stressing me out, I told them I would not be making any decisions tonight and would call them if I chose them. But really, two of the guys came back TWICE today!!
Next the RC Willey dude came. Here starts the bad moojoo. First they bring in the dryer but they dont have my washer. Apparently the washer had a different order number [even though i purchased and paid for them at the exact same time] So he didnt pick it up but he could if I paid him ANOTHER 50$. UM EXCUSE ME??! I even called my sales rep. no help there. ugh. So now I get to figure that one out. But they did deliver my table. And I still love that. It has a couple scratches I need to fill in but thats the reason I was able to get a 1300$ table for just over $500 so no complaints there.
Yay table and six brand new chairs.
Also goes really well with my new rug 😎
Yup. 911. Even heard them coming with their SIRENS on. And they still beat the technician from the gas co by about 15-20min. assholes. But yes, the nice firemen turned off my gas inside and outside the house and showed me what to do. I explained I hadnt even moved all my stuff into the house yet and that I am just a Florida girl who never had a house with gas and I had no idea what was happening but I didnt want my house to turn into a gas bomb. They were very nice and understanding and waited for a bit. The gas dissipated, and the Gas man came. If i didnt already mention, I knew the gas was coming from the dryer. Well, it wasnt tightened down enough so it was all leaking. Gas Man fixed the tubes but then told me that, actually, the dryer does not work. Not hot gas. no hot air. no hot anything. Awesome. So I call RC Willey and they tell me the dryer is under warranty and I can call the company for them to fix it at no cost. Tomorrow. Ugh.
So that is what I have to deal with. The ONE delivery that was supposed to happen today is where EVERYTHING went wrong and the other two were perfect.
So Now I am going to the Cosmopolitan Boulevard Pool for Summer Movie Nights to watch Sixteen Candles. Because I Can. and its free [which is my new favorite word]. Just lounge at a resort pool and watch throwback movies. yes. please.
Oh and I also just had another half of an avocado [for an avocado tomato salt sandwich]. I swear, it really fixes stress. Promise.
Ok, well here is hoping Wednesday and Friday go better with my furniture than today did!!
