This can not be happening...

I was trying to be ahead of schedule, so I starting calling my utility companies last week to begin setting up services.  I had my cable/internet/phone scheduled to be moved 2 days after closing. (Sunday activation). Well, I received a call from my cable company today explaining that service is unavailable at my new home at this time. They hope to have that end of my community wired by the end of the year. Of course my sales rep, and PM are blaming the cable company. My frustration is I had my house wired for cable and opted not have any traditional phone wiring. That would have been an optimal time to say hey we aren't sure or we need to make sure cable is an option.

As of now the cable company is saying it could be a minimum of 60 days. Which reminds me, the plan I chose with Guardian requires a home phone... Hmmmm. Not very happy about this!

Stay tuned, still have some more calls to make for this issue.

We are rolling right along....

Got word from my LO, that she was sending everything in for final underwriting on Friday. Praying everything continues to work out without a hitch.

I went by on Friday, my PM was busy going through all of the units doing his thing. So I was able to wander around on my own. We are very close to having everything completed, PM is working now to get all inspections passed. While also going through and touching up any nicks they see.

Here are a few pictures ...I'm so excited.
Door Painted, landscaping done

Hardwood Floors

Gas logs, won't be using them for a while

Wish me luck we keeping the floor shining


Microwave and Stove, guess I really need to be shopping for a refrigerator now.

Carpet upstairs

Stairway, I have to get mentally prepared to tackle these everyday!

View from the rear

Neighbors (lol)...It seem like its a thousand of them greeting you has you enter/exit the community.

It's getting harder each time to leave, I am so ready to begin moving. In the meantime, it's PACKING, PACKING, PACKING! Did I say how much I hate PACKING? Well, it has to get done, so might as well get to it!

Did someone say mail?

OMG, I don't think I have ever been so excited to see a mailbox. The little things that makes me happy these days.

Well, everything is coming along, all of the sinks, showers/tub, toilets have been installed. Should have carpet and hardwood floors installed by the end of the week. And also should begin landscaping this week.

What do you know, tomorrow begins my 30 day count day to closing. Super excited about that. :) I really do need to get a move on with this packing. One box down a million to go.
