Tuesday was pure chaos. The movers showed up at 10am and got to work. I set out a box of snacks/drinks I planned to take to the hotel, and informed the project manager that those were to stay out. They got packed away lol. That was really the only moving blip to complain about, not a big deal.
The flooring company (2 guys) showed up an hour after the movers arrived. They told us they would have to postpone until Wednesday since the movers weren’t done. I admit, it wasn’t my proudest moment, but I completely lost it. Why couldn’t they start? The movers were done in the room that needed the flooring torn out. The flooring company is the one that set this ridiculous schedule to begin with! Why am I being delayed for a 5th time? After walking outside to make a call, he came to inform me they would begin today. Haha, I guess losing your shit is what it takes to get things done sometimes.
So while all of this is going on, DH isn’t sleeping, he keeps having to assist with things while I wrangled the two kids. He hit 24 hours of no sleep. We played phone tag all morning with the adjustor. Finally got a hold of him and he seemed surprised we needed a hotel right now…really? We’ve been trying to get this booked for weeks?! We told him we needed to check in ASAP, he told us 3pm is the earliest. DH works at 8pm. So he got 3-4 hours of sleep. Super annoying when people can’t understand how a nightshift schedule works!
We got our hotel reservations. Right down the road. It’s a fully stocked kitchen and living area, with a separate bedroom that was said to have two queen beds. Well they are definitely not queens. Full at best. Fully stocked kitchen seems to me 1 burnt pot, 2 broken glasses, 1 spoon, and 3 knives. That’s it. AC in the bedroom doesn’t work. And the back door to the balcony doesn’t latch shut or lock. Needless to say, we weren’t happy. Then as I went out to the parking lot, we were harassed by some guy (drugs? maybe?) telling me he needed to talk to me, needed a favor. No, go away. He followed me back into the hotel. He was there when DH left just hanging out in the lobby. Why is the staff allowing that?!?!
Then we’re in our room and the people next door have 3 small children and keep their TV on a full volume. On the other side, the people have two vicious sounding dogs that bark every time you walk by their door. I’m just not comfortable here! We put in a request to move hotels, but every thing is sold out. I hope to hear back today, because no way I’m putting up with this for two weeks.
On the plus side, I was able to pick out a new stain for the floor. I’ll share that picture later. I’m very happy with it, and it’s completely different than what we had! Wifi here is too spotty to upload an image.
