You guys… Moving sucks. I’m warning you now that this post is full of whining.
(This photo has nothing to do with the post, but it's pretty and I like the colors.)
It doesn’t matter how big or small the space is that you are moving out of. It just generally sucks. And this is the first move that Dave and I are facilitating by ourselves. Talk about #adulting. Don’t even get me started on dealing with electric and cable companies. Or making an appointment to get carpets cleaned. Yeesh.
I’ve already told you guys how small our apartment is. Probably about 400-500 square feet. I actually prefer a small space, because it limits how much stuff you have (supposedly), and there is enough room to be together if we want, but separate if we want.
Even though we have a teeny tiny space that we are moving from, it is FULL OF STUFF. I never realized that I am a card hoarder. If you gave me a birthday card 5 years ago, I still have it. Dave is similar, but with things. He has an under the bed tote that is just full of trinkets. And we both have SO many books.
We have been slowly packing, organizing and purging stuff for the last two weeks, which is SO much easier than doing it on one or two days. The downside of that is that we are living in a forest of boxes. Where is my camera, you might ask? I have no flipping clue.
We are using a Uhaul U-Box for this move, and I’m excited/nervous to see how it works. We have to ship our stuff out tomorrow, and it will arrive in Pittsburgh on the 1st. It was the cheapest option for us, but now we have to live without 95% of our stuff for the next week.
To end on a positive note, I am very excited for our new space and new city. I can’t wait to explore and find new local “reglular” places. Like the regular place to order pizza from. A new regular grocery store. Our new regular Friday happy hour location.
So I will be keeping you guys up to date as best I can, but just know that it is crazytown here. I pretty much suck at Snapchat, but I’ll try to keep that updated (unlike I did for the wedding – sorry!!) Love you guys!!
