a hot mess

24 May 2010

This last little bit of May is sort of, well, crazy.  So many changes are coming in just one weeks time, when I sit down for a breather I end up just crashing.

Most of this is revolving around the move.  Lovely and I have our keys and our belongings are slowly making their way over.  I’m making my first trip with things tomorrow — Mennogirl offered to help get some things down from Evanston that I left last year… like my futon chair.

I’m packing up the apartment, and realizing that I have just a lot of stuff.  I’m weeding through it.  But I still have a lot of stuff.  I’m hoping it’ll feel like less when I’m no longer living in a tiny apartment.  But beyond the boxes and bags everywhere, my place is just sort of off because I sold my sofa.   So when I want to come home to rest a bit, it means lounging on the bed which means passing out (as mentioned).

Throw into the pot the fact that my landlord is showing my apartment a few times this week — and thus I need to keep the place insanely clean while packing… Yeah.  That’s fun.  I can make it presentable, but I can’t promise sparkling.

The goal is to get things out before going to Libby’s wedding this weekend.  That way when I come home from Ohio, I can just be at the new place and not worry.  (Also, sadness: Josh’s last day at the toy store is while I’m in Ohio… so while I get to return to my new apartment and amazing roommate, I get to also return to a Josh-less job.)

Not-to-mention Chicago has decided it’s perfectly acceptable to just dump 90-degree weather on us suddenly… The kittens have knocked the fan out of the window more times than I can tolerate.

Yeah.  Hot mess.

I absolutely cannot wait to be in the new place with it’s oh-so wonderful ceiling fans!  … just need to figure out the whole getting things over there thing since I lack a vehicle or a valid license to get a vehicle… and the budget too.

  • Moving isn’t easy to begin with, and it sounds like you have an even tougher time. Ugh. Sorry darlin’, but best of luck! Can’t wait to see photos of the new place.

  • moving is so frustrating. having extra hands helps, but it still sucks. at least having the awesome new place with a great roomie is worth the stress of moving 🙂

    good luck getting the rest of your shiz to the new place (and good luck keeping the kitty paw prints to a minimum)

      I suck at packing. Or at least getting myself to do it. No one took me up on my offer for $40-50 to pack my place up this weekend, which is sad because I need help and there’s not much left. Looks like I’ll have to go over early on Monday and get as much done as possible. Worse case maybe my landlord lets it stay there until Saturday when I could rent a truck and then finally move it over. But I don’t want to wait that long.

      White walls + annoyingly curious and rambunctious kitties… yeah… the white one is mostly grey now.
