In these uncertain times, I’m making this announcement in the Adventures in Moving: I’m being safe, and delaying my move date.
For folks who are out of the loop, I planned on moving because the house I’m renting got sold. Thankfully, mom (who owned the house before) sold it to my sister. Because of that, the time table to move is more relaxed.
However, it is NOT relaxed for my sister’s current roommate. Currently, he’s renting an apartment from a preeeety shady landlord. This landlord has been demanding consistent rent payments and will kick out anyone whose lease runs out if the renter does not renew. Even during these uncertain times.
And what do you know? This roommate’s lease runs out in the beginning of June.
He also has a dog. An elderly, pain in the ass dog, whom both of my cats HATE. And he also has a kitten.
The house I’m in is small – so fitting 3 people under the roof is a challenge. Add an extra dog and cat, and that becomes my sister, the roommate, me, four cats, and two dogs (because my sister has a dog, too) under one dinky roof.
So I DO intend to move before June starts.
However, with coronavirus still being A THING, I’ve heard through the grapevine that Ohio intends to open the state back up around May 1.
I am of the opinion that this is WAY TOO DAMN SOON.
(Personally, I prefer the relief effort ViHart outlines in her latest video. Go check it out if you haven’t seen it yet.)
So I’m going to be safe.
Right now, the plan is to move out of my current home between May 15 and May 31. There are contingency plans if the move has to be delayed. But this is the current plan.
Where am I moving to? Well, it’s looking like the Toledo area – but Columbus is still an option.
That’s where things are at for now. As things change, I’ll keep you posted.
Thank you for reading!
You. Are. Awesome.
