Hab B, Day 57

Today we got the keys! We took a moment to look around and get a feel for the apartment, went across town for IKEA, spent about 2 hours touring IKEA for this-and-that, mostly looking at stuff, inspiration. Escaped with only 1200 on the receipt, which could be considered pretty low. Went back to the apartment

Today we signed all the papers. We finalized the papers with the broker and as soon the seller has signed, the papers are going to the bank for processing, settling the deal. At the bank we signed yet more paperwork to finalize the loan, prepare everything for tomorrow, when the signed contract arrives. In the

There is some movement in the planning of moving into the apartment; seller has stated to move out and clean the 25th September, broker is very eager to finalize and close the deal with payment. I have an appointment with the bank on the 28th. Trying to reach out to the bank to reschedule the

Hab B, Day 50

Spent most of the day criss crossing town, farmers market like fair on the square and shopping to groceries in the local middle eastern shop. Tried a new restaurant and were positively surprised, it’s close to the office so there might be return visits just based on the pasta-beef dish I ate today. Yesterday was

Crazy at work today. Woke up at 04:10 as son decided it was a good idea to kick his dad in the face, managed to get him to sleep again, did not fall asleep myself until much later, was awaken by son again just before 06, went up and went to work. Was on call

Hab B, Day 46

This morning I met with our seller, the lady we bought the apartment from, to fetch laundry room key and some mail. She drove me down town and we talk about moving in and out from our separate perspectives, she can’t get into her new apartment because the elderly couple she bought her apartment from

Hab B, Day 45

At work I started to dig into a new technical area today, the idea is to take some load off one of our teams by teaching myself parts of a platform were most of the team members lack in knowledge. Haven’t given the move much thought, but need to get a quotation from yet another

Hab B, Day 44

Yet another trip across town, today in another direction. Visited a few stores to check them out and got some groceries. Have gotten used to living at the bed & breakfast, having to share the cramped space with another tenant, we can call her “M”, we’re getting along fine and this morning she took our

Today is my mothers birthday, on our way across town I called her to congratulate her and also congratulate both mom and dad on their 44th wedding anniversary. Updated them on what and how we are going to handle the move, the bank and other stuff. Across town we went to check out an Asian

Hab B, Day 42

The work week was crazy, lots to do and think about, drained when coming home in the evenings. I like it. Still looking for moving companies, the remaining two companies that I sent a request for quotation has not responded back, at all. Gonna check with the lady we bought the apartment from, as she

Busy day at the office. Got yet another moving company reply today, they wanted to know more about the stuff, how many boxes, furniture and such, comes through as professional. The other two companies has not been heard from, think I already have an idea about which company to choose. Have an appointment with bank
