The joys of moving
For those that don’t know, we’re moving out of Great Bend. Not too far though! Just about 10 miles down the road to the little town of Albert. So no new jobs or anything like that. Just trying to get to a little better neighborhood, and this new place should work out until we’re ready to buy a house somewhere.
The house in Albert is still an older house, but it’s definitely much larger. Larger than we really need, but our increase in rent will only be about $75 a month. Thankfully I’ve picked up some extra voice track duties at work that come with a little extra pay that should help offset the increase in rent and gas money. The old house used to be a FIVE bedroom, but the two bed rooms upstairs have been combined into one. It has a nice little fireplace in the living room and a den and a few more bedrooms in the finished basement. Only has a one car garage, but the driveway is wide enough for two cars, so I can leave the Toronado out in the driveway while Andrea parks the Cutlass in the garage and we can both still get out. Heck even if a storm rolls through I’ve already got hail dents on the Toro.
Really looking forward to getting out of this place. It’s like that feeling you get right before you’re about to go on vacation and the last day of work just drags on and on. This hasn’t been a bad place here on 10th Street for the most part. I mean until recently no one has bothered us and we’ve had everything we needed. Infact I’m really going to miss being able to walk to work. But ever since these new neighbors moved in behind us it’s just been uncomfortable. I can’t walk from my back door to the car without the neighbor sticking his head outside the door and hollering at us about something. Whether it’s to look at his “new rims”, apologize for riding his ATV through my yard, or yesterday he wanted to buy my broken dog leash. That’s of course when the cops aren’t over there which happens about every 3 – 4 weeks.
So hopefully we can rope as FEW people as possible into the move. I’ve got permission to use the van from work and a friend of Andrea’s has a box truck we can use. So all signs point to a smooth move. I’ll have plenty of pics once we’re settled in the new place. It’s gonna look pretty empty though, because we sure don’t have enough junk to fill up the place!
