Well color me shocked as Hell. The Boyfriend just talked to The New Apartment people. They replaced the thermostat and fixed the front doorknob lock. You could knock me over with a feather. I thought for sure they were going to tell us, "Tough shit, we'll just rent it to someone else who's not such a pain in the ass."
Of course, we still have to check it out - which is what we're doing tomorrow. If all goes well, moving day is still set for Saturday. Which means this girl has to take Friday off to finish packing and call everybody I need to call.
