Moving is a bitch!
« on: October 20, 2020, 04:30:10 PM »
My dad is starting to slow down so we are buying a house with a nice in-law and itís been nothing but a clusterfuck the whole way.
NYC mayor and governor have the city so screwed up that everyone is leaving the city and moving to the suburbs.

Sounds like CA, our gov has to beg people to stay and threaten to tax them if they leave. How far are you moving from your current location?
Liar!!!!Filt!!!!

Same town,less the 5 minutes from where I live.
Houses sometimes sell in hours not days.
Great when selling CalvinH dads house but a nightmare trying to buy.
We lost 2 offers to bids at asking price or higher!

Not too bad then, pack/unpack. Houses going that fast is impressive, I figure more people would want to leave the state.

No Iím an hour outside Manhattan so everyone is moving this way out of the city.
New stove,microwave, and dishwasher sitting in the middle of the kitchen because the wiring was wrong so they wouldnít install.
Dryer never showed up and no one can tell us where it is.
Cable had the wrong day so no tv for four days.
The movers for my dad showed up last Monday morning instead of Sunday so it was a rush job.
Literally closing the door behind me when the new owners pulled in with their movers.
Owners of the house we bought were missing some paperwork so we has to close two days later so we had to pay the movers per day to hold my dads stuff.

...and first night here I wake up at 2:30 am to find my dad going into the garage looking for the bathroom and last night I wake up in my room with my dad asking me where the bathroom was.

After weeks of finally getting the house set Sunday night a huge storm comes through and knocks a huge pine tree down across my front yard and takes down my power and cable lines >:(

Your dad is a lucky man. What you are doing for your him is admirable. How old is he? I presume he was living alone. If so, it will be good for him to have family around, not only to watch out for him but to keep him mentally stimulated and alert. Eventually he'll figure out where the bathroom is. Be patient.

I share my house with my daughter, son-in-law, grandson, his girlfriend and my great granddaughter. There are times when it is chaotic and with the baby crying....pretty noisy. Sometimes I wonder what it would be like to live alone which is something I have never done in my entire life. Probably not good. When it comes right down to it, I am grateful for the companionship and their help in maintaining this place.
