The moving has begun--"Stuff"



Last night we started moving some stuff into the apartment, I have a key now. We unrolled the new carpet I had bought, moved the bed in and a few other smalls and bags from shopping. The small round dining table fits perfectly in the bay window alcove, I can't wait to hang the curtians.....

My daughter was with us and she passed the apartment on the approval score, so did the spouse. I have way to much stuff already, I can see it filling up and getting cluttered, got to get into downsizing mode.

I'm going over again this morning because my parents have a car full of stuff I had been picking up for months now. With all this stuff I had been buying, I still need to make another shopping trip and pick up more stuff.

Treat wise, Petey is probably set for a year, I have a huge bag of chewies and a massive bag of dog biscuts..... he'll be happy in his new home. Out of 15 or so bags my daughter scopes out the Hershey's Treasures I picked up.I had to hide them in a cabinet on a high shelf so she didn't open them, never know when a chocolate fix will be needed. I really feel like I am hoarding stuff for the big winter..... I'm not used to not having access to a store, I've got some adjusting to do.

The spouse and daughter were planning my container garden for me, I told them I'm not even attempting gardening this spring, the move will be enough for me. There is always next year.......


PS. I'll have to do a blog entry on tips for survivors moving, it is different them before, the energy doesn't stick around too long.

I'm feeling stress from just reading. Sounds like you are getting on quickly though. Any chance of having a yard sale at the old house so you don't have to move so much stuff?


Yay, to hiding chocolate. Try not to misplace them though.

Hi Pam,


Just want to wish you lots of good luck in your new home. Just remember...Rome wasn't built in a day. Don't put pressure on yourself to finish everything...Take it slow and enjoy your new space and freedom!

Thanks for keeping us updated. I hide the chocolate up high in this house, too. (Don's diabetic) so if we ever visit each other, we'll feel right at home.

Your apartment sounds wonderful - If I bring really good chocolate, can I come visit?

Yes I can be bought and bribed for really good chocolate. Just no fruit junk in the middle, it ruins good chocolate, like good cakes are ruined that way. So when can I expect you chocolate in hand?
