The move

November 26th, 2008 · 7 Comments

A bit silent round parts these past couple weeks with our impending apartment move.

Work had been non-stop (in a good way) all the way up to this week — so now I’m cramming a lot into 5 days. Between address changes, picking up boxes, shuttling and errands around the city — it’s a whirlwind — thank god I used a week of vacation. Feels funny not to be getting on a plane and going somewhere with vacation time, but in hindsight this was a good choice.

1/2 the apartment is ready to ship out and the other half will be ready by Thursday night. It’s exciting but now I’m slightly over the “purge euphoria” and just want it done.

Wish us luck; 3 days to go!

    Gooooooooooood luck dude!
    Wait till you unpack boxes full of stuff and ask – “Why do I have this?”
    I’ve still got 3 boxes of VHS tapes wrapped for nearly 4 yrs.
    Purge if possible!

    keep all your old skate stuff it’s gold. hope your move goes smooth and that you really enjoy your new place. Did you ask if it was haunted? When we came to see our current place i asked the old owners if it was haunted. I think they thought I was crazy (maybe) but fuck I don’t want to buy a haunted house and end up in the tv.

    Good luck Stevey and Linda!! We moved this past summer as well as a year and a half before that… brutal, but the editing/purging process was cathartic. I took a week off too, it was 100% worth it. Mail forwarding was worth it for us too, one less thing to worry about!! Looking forward to hearing about your new space.

    Thanks guys;

    @J — I’m trying; mag’s mainly and one wrecked old deck. No clue about the haunting; now i’m nervous !!
    @anile – we did the mail FWD — 40$ for both me and linda – well worth it.
