So I found a great little apartment in a nice little neighborhood in Vancouver. The landlord is lovely and the suite is a 2 bedroom with hard wood floors throughout. The kitty will stay inside and we will have a dedicated craft room!
The suite has laundry just five steps away, a parking spot about 10 steps away from my door, a small storage area for things I want to have in storage (suit case, christmas deco) but not all the way in my big storage.
My landlords (existing) are still completely crazy and yesterday after they gave me my reference and I got the apartment and handed over the damage deposit, they called me upstairs to tell me they changed their minds and I didn’t have to move. Boy was I pissed off! I told them that it was too late and that in good faith I was making motions to get out of their way as quickly as possible and now that they’d decided that I didn’t have to move they’d put me in a really bad position. I negotiated with them that I was going to move and due to the miscommunication and the tribulation they put me through this week, I would not be paying April’s rent and that would be the end of it. They really want me to stay and I think they’re genuinely sorry that they did what they did, but things that have been said/done cannot be unsaid/undone and I no longer feel comfortable living there. Plus, I had emotionally gotten ready to be moving and started making plans and feeling a new fresh beginning coming on, so I am not willing to give that up. They asked me to sleep on it and let them know today.
Well I got electricity, television, internet and phone service connected for April 26th, changed my address with half a dozen government agencies and my work, my cell phone, the vet and my storage company. My drivers license is changed and my insurance now reflects my new address.
I’ve made plans for people to come and help me move, boxes to pack in and something to do with the cat while the packing/moving transition takes place… so what do you think my answer to them will be tonight?
I’M OUTTA HERE!
Pictures of the new place just as soon as I can get in there next week… I need to measure for some stuff!
