moving status

I still hate moving. This move has been easier so far, but I still hate it. And all we've done is pack. We can't walk freely through our tiny apartment, due to the overwhelming boxiness of the place. We are officially living out of backpacks, as all our clothes and bathroom stuff are packed. We eat Dunkin Donuts bagels & coffee every morning.

Basically it's like staying in a hotel except nobody cleans up after us.

Tomorrow we* drive the Uhaul van to our new place filled with things like the computers, plants, beads, and other things we don't want the movers touching.


Then I spend the night on sleeping bags with the cat in our new place while C waits at our old place for the movers to some at 9am. Then they bring over our furniture and all the heavy stuff.



Yesterday was a well-deserved Labor Day break that involved muppet movies and ice cream and friends. But like any vacation, it's hard to get back to work. Fah.



*By "we" I of course mean "Craig" because there's no way I'm attempting to drive a big old van through the streets of Brooklyn.

cute kitty. Make sure you put some packing peanuts around C, he's breakable.

super des said...

Yeah, the cat got the padded box.

I'm still jealous you're getting a parlor all to yourself! I can't wait to have a crafty space of my own...

Hope the move goes well and be sure to show up some pics of the new digs when you're all decorated and stuff. :)

hahahahaha. I love the one of C in the box. Hilarious. Be sure you label the box well--you might need him at some point.

(And good luck with the move. I hate moving. Frickin' brackin' pain in the butt.)

super des said...

You know I will Jess!

And Bril, that one's marked "Caution: Live Animal."

Good luck with the move! I could so go for D&D bagels and coffee for breakfast tomorrow.

Suzanne said...

Good luck with moving today. I have nothing pithy to say about the boxed merchandise.

super des said...

thanks guys.

Alex, DD bagels are tasty, but not several days in a row.

Hey! I can see your blog now! I haven't been around because for a while I couldn't open it.

Moving sucks. I've never done it with movers before--that might be nice.

I'm sure they'd be handy to have around when it's time to pack and load the truck as well.

super des said...

We did the packing, they're the ones doing the actual moving (all the truck stuff).

DangerDoll said...

Aw, man! I'm always late and somebody snags my witty comment about breathing holes in the box. Pooey.

Sudiegirl said...

Which muppet movies did you watch? My fave is "The Muppets Take Manhattan".

Steph requested that I leave a comment for her because she does not remember her blogger account:

Benny is jealous of Mecru's box.

super des said...

ha ha. Tell Steph to tell Benny that I still have the box, he can have it.
