One Heck of a Weekend

Well, to start things off, I am EXHAUSTED! Starting Friday night, Joe and I decided that we were going to move out of our apartment. We have to break our lease since it’s not up until January, which isn’t a big deal… except that we need them to get it rented…QUICKLY! As soon as they get it rented again, we are no longer responsible for the rent. So we figured, the quicker we’re out, the quicker they can get moving!

Friday night wasn’t bad for me! I packed up lots of boxes while Joe and a friend moved the washer and dryer, a couch, grill, and our elliptical from the basement. It didn’t look like fun, but there was no way I would be able to help Joe with those, especially with my knee! After those few heavy items, Joe’s friend bailed (smart man!) so Joe and I went out for dinner then came home and finished packing up boxes.

Saturday was a different story for me! I started my day off, playing with the crazy people at the cable company. Have I ever mentioned that I refuse to ever use that company, and will sit without cable before I will ever go back to them! Anyway, after that I stopped off at Home Depot for some nice big boxes. Then, home to continue packing. While Joe was at work, I packed, and made 7/8 trips to our storage unit. Joe got home and I was pooped. He was pleasantly surprised at how hard I worked while he was gone. After two more trips with Joe, we decided enough is enough. I went upstairs to take a nice little nap and was woken up by like 10 people calling (of course, always when I’m trying to sleep!) so I just got up, got a shower and we went out for the night. We went to a local German festival. It was lots of fun! We sat in the beer garden (which wasn’t good for my waistline, but very much needed, for my sanity!). We got home early Saturday night and turned in for the night.

Sunday was also crazy. Joe and I got up pretty early for a Sunday, went to breakfast and returned to finish up all the little packing! Joe’s sister stopped by and we filled her car with stuff that needed to come back to Joe’s parents house for our temporary living space. By four yesterday, we had everything moved out (even beds, mattresses, couches) I really mean everything! We went to dinner at Outback and I had a nice big cheeseburger! I didn’t care that Weight Watchers wouldn’t like that… I don’t know if I’ve been that hungry in a while! I only unpacked enough clothes to get us to work today and then I fell asleep on the couch.

I was a tired girl.

So to let you know, we are temporarily residing in Hartville, and my internet connection to my laptop is terrible. I don’t know how much I will be on in the next month, with vacation and everything too!

Keep us in your thoughts as we get unpacked, just to pack it up and move again!

ooh good luck with all of it!

we lived with my parents for a few months while our house was being built (we had maria and i was prego with sophia). it will hopefully go fast for you :D

and i'm going to go out on a limb and say that the cable company in question is Time Warner. they don't know the definition of the word customer service. we ditched them and have been with directv and couldn't be happier :D

cant wait to see pics of the new house :D

Stalk the rental office for newbies. Offer them a $50 to say that you sent them for an apartment.

Moving is difficult but it seems like you are handling it well. Glad you got your cat nap in and was able to go to the German festival. I'm German so that sounds like a blast! Have a happy and safe vaca!
