Hey! How was everyone's weekend? Mine was fine until I had to go back to work on Sunday. Why is it so hard to go back to work after having a week off? Oh yeah! Because work is not fun. It's not like I had any fun this week. I spent it packing. You should see my apartment.
Complete Disaster. It's driving me crazy because I can't think straight in a mess but I keep telling myself that it's only temporary…it's only temporary…it's only temporary……I feel like I'm living in a trash heap.
I cleaned out the fridge just so I could have one thing that is orderly around here.
I went and signed the lease on our new place Friday but we can't get the keys until August 1 because they have to clean and inspect it from the previous tenant. Ugh! So it's another week or more until we can get everything moved in. We still haven't had any luck selling our furniture so it looks like we'll be getting a storage unit. That's actually a good thing in a way because there really isn't any storage at this new place. We love our furniture but it's way to formal for this new place and….it won't fit. We're going from a over 900sqft to a little less than 800sqft. And we're loosing two rooms, the computer room and the dining room. It's going to be an adjustment for sure, but it will help that it's more updated and modern than where we are now (hopefully!)
Right now we have an attic too but once we move we will have barely any storage. There is a good size hall closet, and a nice size laundry room but the way it's set up, there will be little room to actually store stuff. We seriously cleaned out the attic a while ago and got rid of a TON but there are still some things that need storage, like mementos from different points in my life, special baby clothes, toys, just stuff that I just can not part with. Some very important and meaningful mementos are already gone….due to being thrown away by mistake….but I already told that story, lol! I'm sentimental and I don't care.
The next few weeks are going to be kind of crazy. Even though the lease is already signed, I can't get the keys until the 1st. The building is owned by a management company so it's no like it's any "regular" person renting a house where moving is a little more flexible. Everything starts on the first of the month. No bit deal though. I just want to get it over and done with. I've been yearning to scrapbook and do some sewing. I need curtains for the new place and there is a pocketbook I've been dying to make. All that will have to wait a few weeks. Oh well!
