Today was our first moving day. Our parents, brother and aunt came over to help, and we made three trips with two very full cars. By complete chance we also had access to a U-Haul truck, so we made one extra trip with a few furniture pieces. We didn't have much furniture ready to go since we weren't expecting to have a truck, but it was nice to get even a few of those big things moved. Overall it went well, but everyone is exhausted. Moving all those boxes down a flight of stairs and then up another flight of stairs and around a corner at the duplex was anything but fun. But we did meet a few of our new neighbors today, too, and they all seem very nice. (I would have preferred to meet them when I wasn't grimy and sweaty, but it is what it is.)
So now our dining room is empty, and the rest of the rooms in the apartment are in various stages of half-packed chaos. And we have just about two weeks to get the rest of our stuff packed before Moving Days 2 and 3. (I really hope that's all we'll need because I don't want to drag this out any more than we have to.)
new craft furniture plus my current stamp shelf) and the things I want to put in here (desk and file cabinet), it really didn't seem big enough. So instead I think this will be my bedroom with minimal furnishings. It will be tight -- I mean cozy -- but I think it will be doable. (I might try to fit my craft stuff in here first, though. Just to make sure).
Now that we actually have some things at our new place, the whole move is finally starting to seem real. I just have to hope that I can keep enough momentum going to finish the job.
Thanks for stopping by!
