disappointment :(

I'm so sad right now! We received a call from our landlord informing us that something happened with the previous tenant's new condo so he'll have to stay another week. All of his stuff is still in our new place and isn't ready to move. UGH!!!! So unfortunately, we won't be able to move in until next Sunday, the 20th, at the latest. Hopefully we can move in sooner but it just sucks because we got everything packed! I'm so sad. I feel like crying. I knew something was going to happen! Everything was going well. Everything was too perfect. There's always something. Pooh just got his requested raise, I just got my promotion and raise the following day, (I was going to blog about it when we moved in) we got our new home in a perfect location, things were going great...and then this happened! ::sigh:: I've always felt that man should be in charge of his own destiny, but despite how he lives his life and how much good he might do...he still has no control over the anguish caused by the world around him. Sometimes I think that life is a hill that we're all told to get to the top of...but whoever told us to get to the top neglected to inform us that they'll be hurling giant boulders at us. Sometimes some of us get hit by bigger boulders. I guess I should of seen it coming because it all seemed too easy. ::sigh::
Pooh and I are gonna go out and have a couple drinks to calm ourselves down. :(

Well, on the bright side...I made an appointment for an eye exam & new glases on tuesday. I was going to cancel because of the big move. I guess I don't have to cancel anymore...

well, let's look at it positively. You and pooh got the promotion you needed, you got a new tv, you got everything... let's just wait =)

happy birthday, pooh =)

anyway, tiggz, not all guys are lucky as you two. just because the previous tenant decided to stay for a week doesnt mean you won't live there. let's just say that God is planning something better why He decided to make a delay =)

Everything happens for a reason. Oh well, goodluck!!

geeze, so dramatic! its only a week delay, its not like your homeless like some people. i think you are over reacting to a small 'temporary' setback . in the overall scheme of things, this is nothing. how will you react when something happens really serious? like a health emergency, or fire, or major earthquake. i think your acting like a baby

i do understand that it is just a small temporary setback..but i'm just disappointed. I'm not overreacting and making a big deal about it, I'm just expressing that I'm diappointed and, of course, sad because we've been excited for the big move. We did make a deposit on the 1st of the month...so we've been waiting 15 days already. This is a blog...an online journal...a way of expressing my emotions. Yes, it might of sounded a bit dramatic about the whole life being on a hill and all but I was just stating that whenever things are good something always happens. Perhaps you misunderstood my point. Anyway, there are other factors that we are worried about also...like that our electricity/gas/etc starts on the 15th and so we'll be paying for the guy's use of electricity/gas/water/etc during that extra week he'll be staying...and also our cable starts as well on the 15th. We've also made arrangements in our business schedules to accomodate our inavailabilty due to the move. Pooh cancelled a couple photoshoots, I cancelled a couple meetings, and we both also pushed things forward to the following weekened. Plus we'll now have to pay for an extra weeks rent at the place we're at now on top of the rent we'll have to pay for the week we'll not be staying at the place we're supposed to move in. Our landlord is a really nice guy and I didn't complain or anything because I knew there was nothing he could do about it. But I'm sure if anyone else already packed away all of their belongings and had them already in a truck ready to be shipped to their new place, and rescheduled business arrangement that will pay for their rent and bills, and have a signed contract on all the negotiations...I'm sure they'd be a bit perturbed. I know that it's just "temporary" setback...but it is indeed an inconvenience and I just wanted to vent. If you've been following with my blog you'd of known that I've been in the hospital, and have had my grandmother pass away recently...so I can differentiate the seriousness of the situations. Like I said, it's a blog...and I also said I'd keep my readers posted. Or maybe I shouldn't blog at all? Anyway, you're entitled to your opinion but I really wasn't intending to over dramatize...but i guess this reply, however, sounds a bit dramatic. It's also Pooh's birthday tomorrow...but I guess our feelings don't matter? My apologies :)

What the heck are your jobs anyway? U always talk about promotions, salary increases blah blah blah...

tiggahtigz said...

For privacy purposes I can't say exactly what I do and where I work...but I've recently been promoted to a higher division in sales...Pooh is a graphic designer and a photographer. I've mentioned that pooh was hired in my company as the director of promotional advertising and graphic design in an old post, so I guess you are maybe new to my blog. Welcome, and thank you for reading my blog ^_^. As for the salary increases...i've only mentioned it recently. Pooh is past his 90 days at our company and was up for a review and pay increase...I was recently promoted and therefore received a raise. I've only mentioned it recently...I don't talk about money all the time silly! I mostly talk about food! :) Pooh and I also have second jobs outside of our company...but I've never really mentioned it before in my blog. Perhaps I'll blog about it some day.

PuRoY said...

hmmmmm....sad for you too...but as my sister always says to me..everything happens for a reason....there must be something good in all this scenario...advise, better check the house again atleast look for something needed to be fixed by the landlord before you moved in...it happens to me before, I was moving to another flat but got cancelled so i check it again found some leakage, non working sucket and bulbs and got it fixed before moving in.

Hang in there guy, sometimes the wait is hard, but once it happens it is even more precious! I wish I could send you some tropical flowers to cheer you up.

Im really excited for you guys. I know how it feels moving to a new crib..its exciting and fun...dont forget to have a house warming..invite us..hehehehehehe

Hey guys,

Tigz just like us has emotions and he is definitely entitled to it. who are we to judge anyway? we should uphold the saying "to each his own".
