I am now at my new home

Finally, sort of unpacked and getting settled into my new home. Was able to get the internet connected today, so I can now catch up a bit. I have to work tomorrow, so I will pick Spike up from the kennel after work tomorrow so he can check out the new house. I want to be home with him to get him acclimated to the new surroundings. I was hoping on a whole weekend, but no such luck. I have most of the boxes unpacked that weren't in the storage lockers. I will try and empty the small unit and bring the Mustang home as the week progresses. I will probably keep the big unit for a bit until I get the garage built so I don't have to move things twice. I could really use some more time off. I took Monday through Wednesday for closing and moving, but it was not enough. Out of personal days, but I get another one at the end of this month if I don't miss any time, which I never do.

House looks great with my belongings in place. I need to hang two closet doors in the master bedroom. They had curtains, which looked tacky. I bought the track kits. If it isn't raining tomorrow, I will pick up the doors for it. Need to get rid of a tv mount he left on the wall as well. Nastiest thing I have to do is clean the breezeway. The area between the garage and house, which is enclosed with glass panels and screens, was used for their cats. It smells of cat urine. I am going to cut up the carpet and then treat the cement underneath to try and kill the odor. I want to lay tile in there anyway, but it would have been nice not to have to disinfect the area first. It is overpowering. I will hit the pet store to see what products they have. I am looking forward to getting off tomorrow. I did a mini grocery stop, so Spike and I can have some breakfast Sunday, as well as cook on the patio.


  1. This works best.

    (S has 7 cats, so I know)

    Spray, let dry, rinse a LOT.

  2. Thanks. Will try it out. I am going to cut the carpet and tie up for the trash pick up. I lucked out and Monday is their heavy trash day, which is when they pick up appliances, carpet and such. I definitely need to kill the smell. It is bad. I want to tile the room when done. I want the smell gone so I can actually enjoy the room. I also plan on modifying the fence line so the breezeway will lead directly to the back yard. Be nice to be able to let Spike out into back yard from either level. I am anxious to start modifying things. Hope to get the garage started soon. Thanks again.
