"Moving prep" or "To do, to do, to do"

Dinner tonight was a buffalo burger and a large bowl of peas. Mmm...buffalo & peas.

Hey! Who wants to know what all I've got left between now and Thursday? No? Too bad, I need to detail this out for my own records


1. I need to wash every item of clothing and bedding I've got. Not only are most of my clothes dirty and lying on the floor, where I am going does not have a washer and dryer. Man I hate the laundromat so I may as well start life there with all clean clothes, right?

2. Pack up the stuff under my closet. (That shouldn't be TOO bad.)

3. Clean and scour out my kitchen. I figure a really clean kitchen with everything where it is supposed to be will make it easier to pack everything up. Once it's clean start packing it up leaving the bare essentials for myself for the next couple of days.

4. Ditto my bathroom. I'm thinking the kitchen and bathroom won't take TOO very long. When they are packed, I want to scour the snot out of them. I want to leave this place looking better than when I came.

5. Pack up the knick knacks. I don't feel like I have that many of them but I do have some figurines and delicates that need to be handled with some care.

Lisa was supposed to fly out Thursday afternoon and help me with the last bit unfortunately she forgot she has parent teacher conferences so will be coming out much, much later Thursday night. Sigh.
I am hoping by the time I pick her up everything will be packed, my place will be clean and all my furniture will be taken apart (that gets broken apart) and it will be a nice clean process to load up the truck, take it to the UPack center, reload it into the trailer and call it good. Thursday is going to be a very busy day methinks.

Good luck, Jett! Are you going to be able to take your swanky oak drawing table with you?

Oh absolutely! I'm keeping that thing the rest of my life and expect my posterity to fight over it! LOL

I am so, so, so excited for you. It is about time you moved out there! Yay! Oh, and moving sucks. The most. :)

Thanks! I'm feeling optimistic about the whole thing.

Moving does suck but it's kind of liberating in a way to do a solid long distance move...because you go through *everything* and get it nice & neatly boxed up. It's the short hops where you feel like you're just transferring piles of junk that really bite!

I know, but it is junk I need! :) Stupid junk moving boxes.

Wow, you can be called "Super Woman" if you can pull all that off.

I know! Cue my theme song.

I'm going to swing by tomorrow...I've got some stuff to drop off at DI and I need to bring Beowulf by. He's been doing pretty well despite everything being torn apart and boxed up but why stress him further when he can enjoy the rest of the week at Grandma & Grandpas. :)

VERY busy, I'm sure, but think of how great it'll feel when everything's done and you're headed on out!

...that's how I got through the last week of my move. I think I've blacked out the rest of it from Repressed Moving Trauma.
