I hate to say it, but so far the move has not been a good one. For one thing, because it was handed over from one ALT to another, there was no inspection for cleanliness before I moved in. And even though the guy before me tried to 'clean', it's not clean. The biggest issue right now is the mold and mustiness. I've been airing the place out for two weeks now, but I still can't get the humidity down and the smell is still really strong.
I think I have the cockroach problem under control, but the spiders are KILLING me. One literally landed on my arm in the middle of the night, scurried down my blanket and into the corner. At first I didn't know what it was, but when I turned on the light (stupid move) what I saw was NOT PLEASANT. It was about 2 inches in diameter, brown and UGLY. I tried to kill it -bad mistake. I should have trapped it like I did the last one and let it go outside, but instead I chased it and it scurried under some clothes and then disappeared into a closet. Needless to say, I didn't sleep much last night.
And since I'm on a rant, my starter died in my car and it's in the shop again.
I will have internet by the end of the week and I'll post some photos and some happy/sad stories about K, J and M's adventures to Russia.
...see, if I were were with them it would have been J, K, L and M!!!
back to scrubbing...
