I thought I would pop in and say hi. Been busy and sore and tired, but happy. We've had rain off and on...
...and some blue sky days.
I've seen quite a few sunrises.
Haven't been sleeping well.
I even took coffee thermos pics, but won't be able to post tomorrow. Maybe just link this post anyways to T Stands For Tuesdays...because the following Tuesday is moving day so now's my chance. ;)
Miss Karma is still barfing...
...and finding newly emptied places to hide...
...and catch 20 winks.
Boxes have come and gone (to the garage).
Leah was here several nights last week to help me with the pantry. Dagan has hauled out many more boxes to the garage. Leah packed up the low cherry cabinet and taboret, too. One night McFamily was here all evening and brought take-out for dinner! Sweet!
Karma and I had a quiet weekend this past weekend.
I packed a suitcase (borrowed from Dagan and Leah) to live out of for the next couple weeks and gathered up the things we don't want packed till the actual move. Karma was glad to see my in my nightgown all weekend...
...because that meant no visitors--LOL!
We relaxed. Both needed it.
So, today the packing crew arrives to pack everything we didn't get done. And this is what it looks like pre-packers. Fairly empty in the living room. (Didn't realize how much I was used to looking about and seeing spots of bright color everywhere until they were all gone.)
Just some odd-shaped items and boxes left...and all the satchels.
All the ink pads are packed away...
...and the punches.
Dagan and/or Leah will be coming over in the evening this week to take things off the walls and take the spacesaver apart in the bathroom. Shouldn't take them too long.
The desk is empty except for the stuff we are still using.
Under there--the triple dresser is empty and packed.
Boxes and stuff that we need to move ourselves the day before the move are in the entryway.
Half my clothes are given away. Nice! Big black trash bags with things like bedding, rugs, and fabric are on the floor.
Only one drawer in the shorter dresser has anything in it. That rug rolled up in the corner...I am hoping will work in the new studio so I don't have to be afraid of spilling paint or glue. Can hardly wait to actually see what it looks like. (Ordered on Amazon.)
We won't know if it will work in the studio until we bring it over and see if the door will still open and shut. Otherwise it will go in the living room TV area. (Hope it holds together for a while--was really inexpensive.)
We didn't pack up anything much in the actual kitchen...couple of drawers. On the counter I have some silverware, plates, and such saved out to use for the next week. Even the rugs are washed and packed.
We got pretty far in the pantry. Were running out of boxes. They can pack up all but the bottom shelf (Karma food).
Same here--bottom shelf stays with bags and paper plates and hand towels.
They can pack up the rest of the tea and coffee.
Even my frig looks bare without all my colorful magnets.
The packing crew will be here this afternoon. They'll come back every day this week until they have everything packed that they can pack before the move. Tomorrow the maintenance man comes, too, in the morning to check the apartment for any issues that need fixing. Thursday morning Karma goes to the vet for her shots. Going to be another busy week. I am hoping to have a couple of quiet days this weekend before we go pick up the keys next Monday. Moving day is on Tuesday the 28th. We'll bring Miss Karma and her cat box and eating supplies over early before the moving company arrives that day and I will stay there with her. I haven't heard what time that will be yet. If I do get a chance--a lull when I am functional--I will post. :)
So excited to be going to the new place. Now I need to get dressed, bring out more trash, and double check what I DON'T want packed this week. ;) To tired to search for a quote today. So glad this is almost over with. :):) Be back when I'm able. Have a great week!!
