holdouttrout: not your ordinary fish (Default)

1. Work. Work. Woooooooork. I stayed late last night and I'm still not exactly caught up. (Close enough, though.)

2. Moving. Oh, ugh. Moving. The actual date is this Saturday. Tomorrow. Yikes. But I am ALMOST ready--I just keep finding more things to worry about. Just last night I remembered two more people who were coming to help, and now I am worried that there will be TOO MANY PEOPLE to help me move and that they will know that I am a ridiculous person who thinks she needs five more people to help move than she does. I just keep telling myself that really I'm just throwing a moving PARTY. My brain seems happier with that idea.

3. Looking for a condo. Apparently you have to spend time researching them and looking at them and thinking about them. Who knew?

4. Preparing for the Murder Mystery Dinner Party on Sunday. Look, I know I'm maybe not evidencing the best judgment by being responsible for a birthday party the day after I move, but your best friend's 30th birthday only comes around once!

5. Posting to LJ. :-)

More is always better, when moving! That way, no one gets too sick of walking up and down stairs (or in and out of the house, or whatever). I hope it goes well. Pack glasses upright, don't put too many books into one box, label everything in sight, keep a kettle handy... :)

So, so true! We had plenty of people, which meant it went really fast. Yay!

I have to admit--I'm great at labeling the first dozen boxes, but it can get a bit dicey after that. Still--I think everything that was supposed to go to storage ended up there, and everything that was coming with me came. Yay!

And don't forget to keep the toilet paper where you can find it quickly :)

(We used to move a lot, and that was the first thing I learned--be sure you can find the toilet paper when you're unpacking!)

Apparently you must now be already moved, since it's Sunday, so good luck with the birthday party--I'm sure it will be wonderful!

Toilet paper! Yes--a couple of roommates ago, we moved from one apartment to another, only we moved separate weekends (just the way it worked out). She took ALL of the toilet paper with her, and I was left with... nothing. I... managed. And learned a Valuable Life Lesson.

I did see this comment before the party, and much appreciated your good wishes. Everything went great! :-)

Sounds good--yes, we all learn the value of toilet paper, when we have none, that's for sure! :) :)
