Moving is a lot of work, people. Clearly, this is something I already knew, but it’s definitely a bear. As I have discussed, I hired movers to only do the big furniture (lots of glass things, easier to have the pros do it) and so I’m packing up and moving everything else. I have until next Friday to get everything done, and I’m not sure it’s gonna happen. Part of the problem is that this is an incredibly busy time for me, so that doesn’t help, but part of it is just not realizing how much stuff I have. I’ve been culling through things as I pack and I’m sure I’ll do more as I unpack.
My next big expense for the house is going to be window coverings of some sort. Because the house was a flip, it didn’t come with any sort of shades or blinds installed, and well, I don’t need the neighbors looking in all the time. Because of the cost of the custom blinds and shades, I decided to have someone come and measure and do the install. That way, if something isn’t right, I can have them replaced. But it’s just one more thing that needs to be done. And they won’t be in by the time we move, so I think we’re going to be tacking sheets over windows. Classy.
I’ve already started driving to work rather than take the metro, because I’m running so many errands. Let me tell you, I thought I loved public transportation, but I get to work so much faster now that I drive. It’s amazing.
We’ve hit the final countdown in terms of days til the move, and I have a lot of work to do. I’m confident that it can all be done. So what if we’re living out of boxes for weeks afterwards?
