Hotel vs. House!

So we signed a contract, and paid, for a house last week. We’ve been waiting to hear from the PODS storage as to when they can drop off our storage pods with all our stuff. We need our beds and couch and table to move in.

This morning we finally got the date they’d deliver. This weekend. Almost an entire week away. So because of that we were looking at staying in a hotel for another week. While our empty, paid for house, with four bedrooms, sat there empty in another town.

Ugh, how horrible does that sound? For me, pretty darn horrible!

I sat here in the hotel, after receiving that news, brainstorming how to avoid the impending depression that was sure to come if I was forced to stay here one.more.night. And for sure if I had to stay here FIVE more nights!

I know I have a roof and heat and beds so I shouldn’t complain, but I just really can’t handle being in this small space with 6 other people anymore! :S

So I decided that we should buy some air mattresses for the kids, a sofa with a fold out bed for me and Allan, and a very small (cheap) kitchen table and… MOVE IN. Like, tonight. Or at least tomorrow.

I think we could get all of that stuff for around $400. And we can afford that. Certainly it’s worth it to have a week in a house over a week in a hotel!

So we’re going to WalMart tonight in hopes of buying some cheap stuff and getting out of this hotel situation.
I’ve never been so excited to have cheap stuff in my entire life!  photo 007eresized_zps64708ab5.jpg photo 029eresized_zpse8ce8e89.jpg

  • Go to Ikea! Wish I were a little closer (I'm in Co. Springs), I have folding tables and stools you could borrow. I was just showing my 10 and 11 year old dd's and they can't believe you've been sharing one bathroom for so long! Hope you get to move into your house soon 🙂

  • I'm glad you got into a house but I thought you bought a home there already? When will that be available? I remember when we moved to a new state about 10 years ago our home wasn't finished being built yet and we had to stay in a hotel for over 3 months. So I can totally relate. Good luck with everything.
