Packing and Moving Week

We’re moving this weekend and our apartment looks like it.  It seems that we have no flat surface available.  I’m trying to determine how it is that I have packed so much of our stuff, yet still have no empty countertops or tables.  It confounds me.  It makes our already-crowded apartment seem even smaller and more crowded (having an extra couch crammed in here doesn’t help).  I just keep telling myself that we’re moving in a few days and that I can handle this until Saturday.  Sometimes it even works!  I’m trying to clean as I go so that we don’t have to clean everything after we move.  Hopefully it won’t seem so overwhelming that way.

We get in to our apartment on Saturday, but we’re not getting our moving truck until Sunday (I discovered it’s much cheaper to rent the truck on Sunday).  My mom, smart woman that she is, suggested we pack up the kitchen and bathroom on Saturday and get them all set up at the new place.  She’ll be heading over to help us load up one of our cars and her car, then she’ll come to the new place and help me unpack and set up the new kitchen and bathroom (thanks, Mom!).  On Sunday, we’ll be moving everything else.  We’ll have Monday and Tuesday until noon to clean up the old place, have our final walk-through, and turn in our keys.

The fluffy Collie will be spending the weekend at the kennel.  She gets all stressed out when we move, plus it will be easier to move boxes and furniture if we don’t have a dog standing in our way (she excels at being in the way).  Once we’re all moved in at our new place, we’ll go get here and bring her home, hopefully much less stressed than if we had kept her around during moving.

I’m off to go rest up for work tomorrow (and then more packing).  Have a great rest of the week!
