Moving House!

And so it has come to pass. Contracts signed, tenents vetted, bank accounts checked, lease drawn up. Done and dusted.
All that it is left for me to do is start packing up my shit, my cats, my clothes and my shoes and my books, and begin the process of moving my life from this, my haven, home, most beloved abode, to the new house.
I'm going for a drink.

Have a can of "tenents" on me :) I'm still mid-move, with all my stuff in storage... help!

Still in storage? God Conan are you not going clean out of your mind or ar you starting to wonder if you need half the stuff you have yet?

Yes, I'm clean out of my mind worrying if I need half the stuff... but, but, but it's an archive, books by the thousand, knick knacks, grocery receipts from 1991... documentary evidence of my previous lives without which I would question the eccentricity I've cheerfully accepted...

I got married just over four years ago, and there are still wedding presents in my in-laws' front garage. That's why I'm building a garage at the moment - we want our stuff!

Don't pack the vodka. Make sure you bring that in a carryall bag, so you won't have to search for it when you get there.

Conan, for the love of Pete, THROW IT ALL AWAY! (Except for the books, of course. YOu can probably sell a bunch of them on Amazon and make a few bucks.)

Pack the cats into the shoes to make space. And also for "adorable" photo ops which you can then use to spam the inboxes of all your female friends.

When in doubt my husband always says 'Put it in a cardboard box and sort it out later.' I do this rarely and sort it pronto. With him it's a way of life and the house is bulging with cardboard boxes. It's a disease.
Good luck with the move and I hope ir's a happy one.

Etheline rightly pointed out that I HAVE boxes here still packed from when I moved in, and that it might be worth my while taking said boxes and leaving them by a bin.
What nonsense. There MIGHT be something in one of them I might really need.

That bloody Christa D'Souza gives me the willies. I could open a bottle of wine with her face.

Docky, if you were here I would take you for a Kir, and possibly some rum.

"There MIGHT be something in one of them I might really need."

Exactly, one knows not the day nor the hour when something might come in handy.

And think how greatful we all are when historians uncover a grocery bill from 1785. In a few hundred years' time scholars will be really grateful we didn't destroy everything... scholars, that is, from some other galaxy, here to pick over our remains.

Or three different remotes to thing I don't have any longer.

Happy moving! I hope all that packing is not stressing you out. When I moved from Arizona to Denver, moving services from the local movers was the only option for me. And I'm glad I made that decision to hire professional movers as they helped me plan my move properly.

Anyway, the community is great here in Denver. Moving storage boxes and other old materials are being collected to make them into something useful for the people. Isn't that great?
