This is pretty much our life, the past week, and going into this weekend.
We were able to start moving loads of stuff into our apartment last week, but only started this weekend after a bout with the flu set us back a few days. (On the bright side, we’re all caught up on House of Cards!) We’re moving what we can ourselves, and then this Saturday with the help of some friends, we’ll move the big pieces over, and drop the rest of it to store at a friend’s house.
I’m amazed at how much STUFF there is, even when I consider myself to be a master purger. Even after selling our living room furniture, bedroom dressers, patio furniture, and a handful of odds and ends (bath accessories, floor lamp, snow blower), there is still so much to sort, pack, and move. I’m just hoping I haven’t overlooked things we’ll need being sent to storage or vice versa. Lots of in the moment decision making as I was packing in a hurry!
In house 2.0 news, we sat down with the first set of OUR plans (eek!) and between the five of us, went to town with changes. We’re eagerly awaiting the re-drawn (and likely final) set of plans, which will take into account specifics of our actual lot and the covenants of the neighborhood (among them, a side-loading garage, which has altered the original floor plan we fell in love with quite a bit, but we are loving the changes!). Until we can see the plans, we’re focused on getting things moved out here, patching some nail holes, and getting settled in this coming weekend. More to come soon!
