OK so, like I mentioned, we’re moving. We both live in normal-sized houses that are full of stuff, so we’re going to try to find a new place that’s possibly a little bit larger…but at any rate, we’ll be downsizing. I started packing up my dining room last night and omg, so much stuff. And I don’t even HAVE that much stuff in the dining room. Also I didn’t pack any of the stemware. Actually, the several boxes that are now on the floor mainly just contain games and DVDs, come to think of it.
We don’t have a place we’re moving to yet – but are going to get on that immediately. I have spent a little time looking around at homes for rent in Nashville, and seriously everything is so much less affordable than it was the last time I moved. I’m hoping we don’t end up in an apartment or in Murfreesboro.
Also, I’m being reminded of how much I do actually hate moving. There’s the stress of finding a place that’s a) affordable, b) close enough to work etc, c) allows cats, and d) that you actually LIKE….plus on top of that, there’s the stress of packing up all your shit and borrowing someone’s truck so you can make several hauls to the dump to throw out all the stuff you realize you don’t need (and in my case, the stuff you haven’t thrown away yet because you don’t have a truck)……and it’s just not super fun. Don’t get me wrong – I’m definitely excited about living with Stephen and moving to a new place. I’m just looking forward to all of this being completed, and being able to unpack and settle in come March.
So anyway, tonight I’m thinking that I might start tackling the library. I’m going to get rid of at least some of the National Geographics (they make great scratching posts, apparently), and clean out the closet in that room. Maybe go ahead and put the instruments into their cases. Oh yeah, and I need to sell that speaker. Could make a decent hunk of cash off of that which would for sure help with stuff like security deposits…..
If anyone wants to help me pack, or help move later in the month, I will buy you beer and pizza. Just throwing that out there.
