Binge and Purge

I actually packed a few things this weekend, mostly clothes and such. I'm fairly positive all I have left is kitchen and bathroom items. At least, that's what I'm hoping.

Boat loaded up tons of garbage bags for Goodwill, and there may be more.

I think we're both concerned that our stuff won't fit in the truck, but that's probably us being paranoid.

Right now, I'm fairly anxious and worried. Of course I'm excited about our move. But I won't feel comfortable until we're there and have settled in a bit.

There are still things going on this week, like Boat's cousin and her boyfriend staying with us two nights from Minneapolis to go to the Radiohead concert. I'm going to my favorite restaurant tomorrow with my cousin and aunt, trying hard to figure out exactly what I want to eat. Wednesday I'm doing an interview with a guy who's creating an independent film about Asian Americans in the media. Thursday I have to take Salem to the vet. Friday is up in the air, but I may have a drink after work. And Saturday my parents are having a going away party for us/graduation party for my brother.

Sunday we get the truck and start loading things up. I'll probably be packing up last minute items. Then Boat and our roommate will leave that night and I'll be meeting them on Monday.

Whew!

Most other things have been taken care of. Boat set up our utilities. I spoke with our super and told him when we'd be there. We just have to page him and he'll bring us the keys. I should be getting the carrier that Salem has to stay in (and fit under the seat on the plane) tomorrow. I feel bad that he'll be couped up in it and hope he doesn't freak. We still need to figure out how to close our bank accounts. Yeah, not as easy as it sounds. And we have to set up accounts in NY.

Oh, and I still don't have a job! Ha ha.

For whatever reason, I go back and forth between being perfectly fine with that scenario and freaked the fuck out.

But! We are doing this! All of our plans over the past several months are finally coming to fruition. It's crazy, but it's great.

I'm thinking the after work gathering might not happen.

But, I'd love to hit up Aloha Grill before we go. Maybe Friday evening? (As long as possible other plans don't go through...)

Good luck with the big move, so exciting! I know what you mean about just wanting it to be over and being settled. I loved the first moment everything - all boxes and furniture, me, husband to be, and cat were in our new place and the door closed behind us. It's a great feeling.

Thanks Felicity. I will definitely feel better once the moving part is over. Though I'm sure another kind of worrying will take over ; ).
