The appliances were delivered on Thursday evening, and the old ones sold and picked up!
It was a very hectic night, with only 1 trip to Home Depot and no diasters. The delivery guys were rude but we fought back. They couldn't fit in the alley as their truck was too long to make the turn, they then said that id the neighbout didn't move their car on the road then they couldn't deliver it. We have a little cut out from the sidewalk to the street, and we are the only house on the block that has this. Perhaps there used to be a cross walk there or it was wheelchair access. He then, came in the house, and didn't even consider taking off his shoes. The then told me that I had to take the door off because "it was easier for them." I instructed them that it isn't my job to make their job easier, and that I was not removing my front door. They can go through the gate and use the patio doors as those doors are larger, and the extra 10 steps would actually make the entire process easier. After this, I freaked out to Alan and told him to deal with them, and that they had to use the patio door, and that was final. They were very rough, and didn't work well together. Here is what I don't understand though, they proceeded to bring in the new appliances without taking out the old ones. Alan and I looked at eachother, both realizing that they were doing it all wrong, so he suggested it might be wise to remove the old stuff first! They agreed. After petting Lewis for a few minutes, and asking me questions, they finally got to work. Alan still wants to inspect the patio, as they were fairly rough. Hopefully they didn't scratch or chip it.
The old fridge had an ice maker, and we couldn't turn off the water, so Alan had to run out and grab a special thing for the tank. All solved. And thank god, because Alan left for work, so there would have been a hose running through the kitchen for days with water constantly running! But, again, all sovled!!!! Yay!
Here is a picture of me cleaning the old stove before we sold it. It was a lot of work, but worth it in the end. When the man was looking at them to purchase, he commented on how clean they were!!! Here of course it is filthy, but this was the very beginning!
Alan loves that he doesn't need to bend down anymore to get things out of the fridge. I like that so much stuff can be stored in the door.
And, below is the most recent picture of Kobe and myself! I love how he is leaning forward!!! Like as if he really wants to make sure that he is in the picture!!! I think he was actually trying to escape my grip though!
