4 more sleeps

I move in four days and quite predictably my feelings are a jumble of excited, sad, brave, scared and optimistic and frantic. Crazy probably sums up my state most succinctly. I feel like I have so much to do although I try to keep reminding myself that when it comes down to it I just have to throw some clothes in a bag and get on a plane; if I can do that I will have successfully relocated and everything else is gravy.

My boyfriend and I are in the process of packing up our rooms so that my parents can do other things with the space. I am getting rid of A LOT of stuff and even though I fall rather into the hoarder category of people  (that bit of ribbon might be so useful one of these days…) it actually feels pretty good. We are each brining one suitcase and a carry on bag. That is it.

What else? We are moving to a furnished apartment  (I mean, ‘Flat’ )  that we have never seen and know very little about (Dear Universe, please let there be no wall to wall carpeting or weird upholstery….).

One of my good friends moved into the neighborhood so I gave him my houseplants:

I have donated or disposed of  most of my clothing and will be giving away my canning equipment to my lovely sister-out-of-law who is also throwing us a going away party in her back yard this week.

Thats it folks (my lovely, robot readers). A nice boring list of very mundane and usual moving tasks. Maybe I will get another post in before I go (probably not) and if not, I will see you on the other side!
