This morning I had to scrape ice off of my windshield before I could drive to the gym! I love weather like this - it actually makes it feel all Christmasy and wintery. It sucks that I can't run outside in the morning (if it were like 20 degrees warmer, that would be perfect) but I will deal with it for a few days. I say a few days because that's how Florida is - by the weekend it'll probably be back in the 70's! Gotta love it!
Besides the weather being super cold, it's been hard for me to get into the Christmas spirit. I'm not going to see my family this year, and we'll be moving the week OF Christmas (which means cleaning/unpacking/decorating that entire week I took off of work!). Don't get me wrong, I'm totally excited about our first house! It hasn't set in that in 13 days we'll be homeowners! But I'm just not "feeling" Christmas like I normally do. I can't relax and wrap gifts, I have to pack. I can't decorate or set up our tree because we're moving. I'm having Eric's whole family over for Christmas day and I don't even know what I'm cooking! (*gasp*) So needless to say, reading all these "Christmasy" blogs isn't super exciting for me this year. Hopefully I'll be back and better than ever next year!
I'm trying to keep this in my mind! ... it's our new house! Yay!
I do need an opinion on something though. Remember a few months ago when Layla chewed a hole in our carpet down to the cement?
Here's a friendly reminder in case you've forgotten...
Lovely, huh? It's hard to believe this innocent baby face did that, right? (Trust me, you don't know her)
Ok well here's my dilemma. We haven't told the apartment complex about it yet. We're moving out in 13 days and they have to "inspect" the apartment right? Well, Eric is supposed to call them this week and ask if we will have to pay or do anything about it. But here's my thing. We've been there almost 3 years, so I know they're going to replace the carpet when we leave. They always do. So why should we have to pay when they're going to replace it anyway???
I need your opinion. Should we put up a fuss if they say we have to pay to replace the carpet? Or should we have to pay because our dog ruined it ... *cough* eventhoughthey'rereplacingitanyway.... *cough*.
Help please! :)
