Moving time is finally getting close(ish). It looks like I’ll be moving to my newly renovated place within a couple of months. But Andy and I had to do some painting over the weekend. The master bedroom will be a light green, the bathroom will be blue, and spare room pale purple. My house is going to look like the Pastel Goth palette from Kat Von D. Hahah! We should hopefully be able to wrap up the painting this weekend (fingers crossed). But now I have to start to pack things up, which I’m not looking forward to doing. Moving makes me panic because it forces me to come to terms with the fact I have too many things. Granted, I plan to purge as I pack. I’m sure I’ll have things I don’t feel like packing, so straight to the trash or donation bin they go.
I think I’d be less twitchy about the situation if I could start to move things now. But there are still a lot of things being done in the new place, like the floors need to be tiled or refinished, and (of course) the painting. So I can’t really move things until the floors are done. PLUS I need to order some storage cabinets from Ikea, as we need the extra closet space. I’m thinking of ordering soon, and just sticking the boxes in the basement until we’re ready to move them upstairs and assemble. Argh!
