18 and life
Remember the old Skid Row song? Well we don’t have 18 and life to go, but we do have 18 days until we officially move out. How else to put it but holy shit. I think we are partially in denial even though we’ve already had some people come and look at the apartment who want it next. We’re just trying to see if they want to buy our air conditioners. (Any takers?)
I truly think that moving won’t be that bad, especially since we are moving a block over with Amanda’s parents, but even so, the fact that we completely cleaned out our closet and got rid of basically things we won’t need will be really helpful. I have a feeling that we will do this a second time when we finally move in to the place in Brooklyn, but for now I think it’s good stuff.
As we have yet to start the boxing process (or received boxes) I can’t comment just yet on the pain it is or isn’t to pack. I will say that right now finding out ways to get rid of the few things that are left in the apartment that we certainly don’t want is a little trickier. We have an old Dell computer that is a dinosaur at this point although it works fine. I’m trying to sell it (even if for a few hundred bucks) or donate it to a school. Amanda’s computer guy from our company might purchase it and if not, he’ll tell us how to get rid of it. I also still have to get the three garbage bags of old books to the public library since it’s a nightmare to get the library’s to agree to come pick them up. Amanda is just frustrated with me b/c I think she wants to enjoy her last three weeks of the giant closet being able to get inside if it.
Finally we have our television which unfortunately doesn’t really work with the layout of our new place. I hate to see it go, but then again I think I’ll be ok once we get a new TV that we get to hang on the wall!
In addition, I think our interior designer friend has finally inputted the layout of the apartment into CAD, so once I have those schematics, I’ll upload so everyone can see the virtual layout.
Ok, that’s all for now. More info later.
