We told the property manager we’d take it and we filled out an application right then and there. We made an appointment for a little later in the day to come to the property manager’s office to finish the lease and paying and all that. We had time to take our kids out for lunch since they were staaaarving by this point.
And then we headed over to the rental offices.
Everett had a runny nose and I had run out of tissues so we used this paper towel we got in the property manager’s office. Everett loves napkins and paper towels and baby wipes a LOT. He chews on them happy as can be… normally I don’t let him much because he’ll swallow or choke on little pieces but that day I was so at the end of my rope with his crying that I just let him gum the crumpled up paper towel. It kept him happy. Until it got too soggy, slobbery wet and was starting to come off in little pieces in his mouth and I had to take it away. Then he was NOT happy.
OH, I just remembered who Allan called! The moving company. He called a few to see if they could move our stuff from our storage unit to our new house!
But that night was SO terrible and Everett just thrashed around and cried and cried (and cried x1,000) so eventually I handed him my iPod and tried to just sleep next to him. It didn’t work well and MAN am I glad that night isn’t my every night!
