Title: Moving is a bitch!
Post by: CalvinH 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?

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.

Damn... what did you do to deserve all this?  Are you all settled in your house now?  In a nice routine?  Is dad happy?  I moved (four hours away) two years ago (U-Haul) and it was all pretty seamless.  Iíve been renovating and upgrading ever since.  It never seems to end.  But with an acre of land and a fenced yard my dog is very happy.  I even have a hammock now... very comfy.

Dads struggling and it sucks.
We haven't fenced in the yard and probably won't for now. My father likes to sit on his chair and look out his patio door and see the deer and such.

My neighbor next door lives on two acres.  He built a two car garage apartment for his father in law in his back yard... but the gentleman died before he could move into it.  :'(

I am surprised he didnít turn it into a rental unit; he just uses it for storage.

There are fences that you can see thru that will keep your critters in and most of the wild ones out.

Name?  Type?  Pics?  Links?
Title: Re: Moving is a bitch!
Post by: CalvinH on February 06, 2021, 05:28:38 AM
No fences for now, the deer sometimes come right up to the bird feeder in the middle of the yard and up to the back porch.
The closer the deer the happier pops is.

Nice one Clavin, good of you to move and help your old man.

I walked away from my job and had 6 months with my old man before he passed. One of the best decisions I ever made. In amongst all the crap were a lot of great moments.

So I never thought I'd enjoy mowing the yard but we bought a Club Cadet tractor with a cup holder :)

Sitting with my dad last Sunday morning having breakfast. I had gotten him a chocolate chip muffin.


..I wasn't paying attention and when I turned to talk to him he was finishing eating the muffin, wrapper and all :o :-\ ;D

He has a tiny dog that only barks when there are deer in the yard. We have a bigger mutt that barks a lot which pisses him off.

He still has it though sometimes. I went to bring him his medicine the other day and said,
''Hey it you favorite child"  He looked behind me and said ''I don't see your brother or sister"  ;D ;D ;D

Me and a friend took my old man out to dinner last night.
Can make you laugh and cry.
He asks me''What do I usually order" tell him Penne ala vodka, he says "No, not to drink,what do I eat?''
Then there are two older ladies at the table next to us and they asked what we were eating because it looked good.
he talks to them for awhile then we get in my jeep to go home and he says "See those ladies checking me out"

It's simple, you just put the coffee and water in this and it's done.

I have the same issue, but am lucky to have a 5 foot dropoff into the woods to dump them.

But am waiting, since if I do it now, tomorrow will look as if I did nothing...have to wait for most to fall.

I haven't bought the extra bagger yet so if I keep waiting for more to fall I'll have to stop every 5 feet to empty.
Luckily I have spots in the front and backyard to empty.

We put drainage in the backyard {never dried this year} so next year I'll put in a cup and flag a course employee gave me so I'll have a place to practice. Not going to try and do a putting green but I'll have a chipping area.

My wife had to make two pumpkin pies for Thanksgiving.
I was upstairs and I heard ''BUBBA NO!!!!!!" a plate clatter and lots of noise. As a smart man I decided to stay upstairs and watch
tv. When I came downstairs later I was informed that the dog ate the whole pie.
I looked at the dog in his crate all locked down for punishment and he looked at me and I swear he gave me a dog smile and a look that said, ''Yeah I'll do the time no problem, it was worth it"
