we moved.



we did it. The eagle has landed. Can I tell you how much I do not like to move? Its hard work! Toss in a squirmy 6 year old high energy boy and its total madness. I'm barely keeping it together over here. {Thank goodness for wine, let me tell you..} Let me start off with a short story of how it all went down 48 hours into the thick of it all.

So the day before the big move and my mother and I decide to go and pre-clean the apartment out. We are germ-a-phobes and need to know its clean before making a nest. So we have all our cleaning supplies and vacuums etc. ready to go and we get to the apartments and get the keys and head over to the place. I open the door and WHAM! A wall of super funk from a chain smokers smelly home hits my nose. My eyes were burning and watering {moms as well}. No thank you. I would stay and try and mask things over and air it out and shampoo and pray that the smell would go away with time...But...my son has Asama, this is a deal breaker. So, I march myself to the office and get another apartment, I go there and ahhh new carpet no smells at all and its clean. Great in all, but it just occurs to me that the old place has lights on water on and address changed to that etc. etc. So long story shorter..I changed all the items over to new place, another address form filled out {this makes my third} and I'm good to go. Or one would think right? Nope, as of this isn't enough. So moving day arrives, it gos smooth the bill is around 200$ higher than I was calculating {shows you how good I am at math}, get all my things there and realize I have WAY TOO MUCH CRAP. I don't have room for a kitchen table, a bakers rack, a recliner, a dresser and the lit gos on...Its all piled on my porch and in my living space now {I look like a hoarder and if you know me, I'm the opposite so this is driving me nuts}. I craigslist everything and move on to the next best thing.

So I have a online business and right now its BOOMING with mothers day orders. By the way BIG THANK YOU if you ordered with me this holiday {your awesome}. Its been a challenge to try and get things on track again with finding my tools, supplies, a space to stamp and wait for it......my computer dies. I'm off line for days and days with over 4 pages of messages on etsy with customs. Turns out my graphics card went out and 2 sticks of ram. YAY! more madness. Its fixed now and I'm officially working again. My place is a nightmare for those of us who like clean and organized. Days pass by me and I don't even know it, cant keep up with life in general and hoping there is some normality over the horizon....I could use some of that.

  1. I hate moving. And, as with your case, it always seems that something or more than just one something goes wrong! I hope you got your craigslist stuff sold. And I hope you're getting settled into your new apartment. I'm really glad that they had another available one (one that doesn't reek of smoke). Also glad you got your computer fixed. Whew! You're going to be busy for awhile, but hopefully things will quiet down just enough for you to get everything done. =0)

  2. Why doesn't moving EVER go smoothly? :( Sounds like quite the adventure. My twins have asthma too, so I feel your stress! Hang in there. :)
