The last time we moved was two years ago and back then I thought we did a pretty good job of getting rid of things we didn’t need/use so that we could make the most of our small little two bedroom apartment. And even though it’s been awhile I even went through the closet of our second bedroom back in March and got rid of stuff.
So it’s pretty shocking to me when I’ve spent DAYS packing and I seriously feel like I’m not making a darn dent!
First of all there’s the fact that my books took boxes upon boxes upon boxes to pack up. Then there’s all the random stuff – like, I want to keep it but how do you stay organized when you have just a bunch of RANDOM stuff?
The good news is that my parents are closing on the 3rd of September, just a smidge over 2 weeks. Which will give us all of Labor Day weekend to get everything moved and it’ll give us another week after that to get our apartment cleaned.
The bad news is that until then I feel like I’m living in, well, a crap hole. I mean, this apartment was never anything to write home about ANYWAY, what with the nasty old carpet, the uneven floor in the kitchen, the fact that the hood vent over the stove was taken out and there’s just a hole where it was or the fact that the hallway of our building looks like the worst part of the 70’s threw up everywhere. Mix that in with the fact that all of our stuff that isn’t packed is kind of just throw around everywhere and little OCD me is having a bit of an issue.
Seriously. Is it moving time yet?
