Moving in less than a week! I'm so pumped!!!
I cannot wait to decorate with MY stuff again, to cook again, to walk around in my undies if I want to.
I took off Monday and Tuesday to move. I'm going to do as much as I can on my own on Monday, then the movers come early Tuesday morning and my mom is going to help me. My friends had offered, but since I chose such odd days they all have to work.
It's okay though. It's completely my fault, so I don't blame them one bit. We are doing so good at work, and since I am a control freak (seriously, I am) I wanted to take off the days with the slowest traffic through my store.
Honestly, I would really rather work by myself (am I weird?) I just have my own way of doing things and since this is marking my 16th move I have a very specific way I do it. How many ways can you move across town you ask?
Do you take the clothes off the hanger and box them up? Do you break things down (if possible) like the dining room table, coat rack or entertainment center? Do you take the clothes out of the drawer and box them up? Do you toss everything in the fridge and start over? Do you wash things like bedding before or after you have moved?
To answer those questions. No. No. No. No and before.
Unless I am moving out of state, which I have done 5 times, these answers are usually always the same. I am not counting moving from Missouri into Kansas because Kansas City is on the border and it was like moving across town.
There are a couple of concerns I have. Libby is my cat, her friends Oscar and Maverick are my roommates. I do not plan on getting her a new friend. In fact, after living with three cats in this tiny house I do not plan on owning multiple cats. Ever. How is Libby going to handle being an only child again? My roommate things I'm going to have to get her a friend.
I guess I will deal with that if and when the time comes. If she seems depressed and new toys don't seem to satisfy her I might start looking for another cat. I'm just so fed up with the shedding lately, I'm ready to shave Libby. I know she's just shedding her winter coat, but seriously?! It's E-V-E-R-Y-W-H-E-R-E!!
Another thing I am thinking about is... not getting cable. I think I would read and write a lot more, which is so much better for me than sitting in front of the tube every night for a couple of hours!
Do you guys have cable? Anybody try to go without it? I have had cable/dvr for so long, I'm not sure if I can last...
One last thing...
