Lease Signed!

June 12th, 2018 at 04:51 pm

I put in an application yesterday for the place around the corner from where I work. Heard back today that everything was smooth in processing and he had me meet him at the unit to sign the lease and give me the keys. So it's officially official. I have a place to live and can begin moving in.

DH heard back about his today as well, and it seems like things are progressing the way they need to there as well. His potential move-in date is July 8. I'm hoping to have the bulk of my stuff moved by the time friends come in from out of town at the end of the month, and will be moving things gradually until then. I don't have a ton of big furniture, so I can basically load up my car every day and drop the load off before heading in to work, and I'll be pretty much set. That has the added benefit of letting it be gradual. A sort of weaning away from my current life into my new one.

With the move-outs being so soon, we're definitely looking to split up our bank account soon. I pulled my deposit and first month's rent from the joint account, so we'll do the same for his. But we don't want to wait much longer than that.

Also need to separate the phone plan. Wont be difficult, we just haven't felt like doing it. Same with the divorce papers. heh. We should probably file those at some point. I don't think we'll wait too long now that things are moving along.

Did talk to our HR person today about getting things in order to switch my beneficiary on my insurance. DH was under his own plan, so it's going to be relatively simple. I need to think through my HSA contributions while I'm at it - I know I have some things I need to schedule coming up. I already contribute a tiny bit per pay period, but it may be worth it to add to that at least for a few months.

My student loan refinancing was supposed to go through today but I haven't seen anything on the Navient end. Hopefully that will go through soon. I'm pretty excited to see it disappear. Serious good riddance to that horrible company.

That's about all the news I have at this point. Until we get everything split it's hard to have an accurate depiction of what my finances will look like, but at least I know what my rent is. Need to get internet set up in the new place toward the end of the month. It's looking like that will be pretty standard.

It's all very bittersweet - I'm trying to focus on the fresh energy of a new beginning. It's really difficult to do in this situation, and I've been feeling really drained for about a week now. I know it's temporary and all, but it's been difficult. Hopefully getting in and getting things organized will leave me in a more positive place. I do really like the apartment, and think I'll be happy there. Time will tell.

Hope everyone is having a great week!

    Congratulation on the new place!

    Feeling drain is normal, you have a lot going on. If you don’t notice a change in a few weeks, I’d recommend using your company’s EAP, it’s free.

    Yay for the place! And for things going smoothly, all else considered. I know it's probably starting to hit hard, and I'm sure as the divorce keeps playing out, you'll find even more that needs adjusting, but you eventually will hit a new normal. When I lost my son, I put a quote on my phone. Just seeing it every time I unlock it is a constant reminder that things will get better. While yours is a different sort of mourning, you may still find some comfort in it.

    'The weight of grief stays the same, but somehow with the passage of time, you get strong enough to bear it.'

    Sending you lots of good vibes and happy thoughts!

    This stage is very useful because you will gradually say goodbye to the past and be able to start everything from scratch in a new place for you, which will be more successful for you.

    Congrats on finding a place! I moved out gradually too and it made things a lot easier on the big moving day. On my phone, I made a list of things that I needed to do and a list of everything I needed to remove my ex from or open a new account for just me, which helped a lot. Consider making a few healthy plans or rules for yourself for after you are fully moved and coping with the new reality. I scheduled monthly massages for a while, banned certain foods from my house that I know I would eat to excess, made myself go to bed early, etc.

    Glad things went smoothly on your new place. I think the gradual move should be easier both physically as well as emotionally. Smart move on many levels!
