Ugggghhhhhhhh. I don't want to write this entry.
Jim's not moving into his new place tomorrow. It's not ready, and it won't BE ready until Friday. He went and took a look at it and there are a number of things wrong with it--the ceiling has to be painted, the counter needs to be replaced, the walls and the doors have to be painted. The previous tenant was a smoker, and apparently the smoke stains are so bad that they're bleeding through the paint. Jim's not even totally convinced that it will be ready by Friday.
I offered/cajoled/almost begged him to let me put him in a hotel until it's ready, but he very politely refused. He said he's absolutely fine now that he has the Element and has no need to go into a hotel.
Here's hoping the move in date will indeed be Friday.
