granted I'm always anxious. everything makes me nervous and I credit that fact to my need for 'perfection'. and I know, nothing is perfect, but I like it my way.
okay I'm a control freak.. ha!
my life right now is consumed with boxes.
(I share these empty, flat boxes because I'm too embarrassed to take pictures of the craziness I am living in)
I am moving and moving is.not.fun.
Unpacking doesn't bother me so much, but packing for this particular move is different.
I've moved plenty. Packed plenty and unpacked just as much.
I moved back and forth in college. From college to Las Vegas. Into a new place almost all 4 years in Vegas and then from Vegas to DC (10 months ago) and now DC to San Fran.
This move is different because we're selling all our furniture and then some.
Taking what fits in boxes and suit cases. (I have thought this threw, and with each visit, two boxes make their one-way trip to SF) and shipping 8 or so boxes of personal items.
It's somewhat depressing to fit my life into boxes.
I have a lot of stuff and have throw a shit ton of things away. Old clothes. Gone through old files. Just old shit.
What I'm finding hardest to get rid of is my clothes. Sorting through stuff, I have found treasures that I've began re-wearing. (I'm sure that'll make James happy to read, ha!)
I AM excited that when making SF my new home I get to shop. Yep, shop. (I'm not sure James thought this through, I kid. Sorta). Buy new furniture. New decorations. New bedding., New kitchen stuff. A new everything else that you need to survive.
(I totally typed that last part with a huge smile and partial evil grin)
Apartment hunting is going to be fun. I've never actually lived "in" a city. I have lived around and have some key things I am looking for in my new home.
Sunshine (SF can be cloudy/gloomy)*
Convenient walk to the grocery store*
Same holds true to restaurants/shopping
Washer & dryer IN our apartment*
Very large closet*
Although I know I won't get all of these. I put little * for things I won't budge on. :) (well I may have to, who am I kidding, we aren't going to spend 5g's a month on rent)
Feel free to share packing and moving tips!! I'd love to hear them.
And how do you determine really want to get ride of (because you know I
Happy Wednesday (I seriously almost typed ya'll. ha!). Back to the boxes.
