M-Day (Moving Day) Minus 1

Things I have done today:
  • Confirmed my rental moving van for tomorrow

  • Confirmed my internet and cable will be activated at the new place Wednesday

  • Signed my lease and received keys for the new place

  • Submitted a change of address card at the post office, after being annoyed that I couldn't do it online because I don't have a credit card with a billing address of my old or new addresses

  • Notified the school, the history department, the public library, and the gastroenterologist's office of my change of address

  • Bought a new CD by my favorite musical artist (Ray Stevens, who is best known for his comedy music but his serious stuff is awesome as well)

Things I need or wanted to do today before the big moving day tomorrow (and reasons I have not yet done them or may not be able to do them at all today):
  • Notify my three subscription magazines of the change of address (all copies of the magazines are in boxes so I don't know the phone numbers to call; perhaps I could find that info online?) I found the info online so this is now done.

  • Finish the last little bit of packing (but I'm not sure what I'll need for the rest of the day)

  • Arranging boxes and furniture so that large items that need to go on the truck first are easily accessible to facilitate big move tomorrow (my roommate hasn't moved out all her stuff yet and has a huge pile of stuff in the middle of the living room and I'm not sure if she is going to get it before or after my big move so I don't know if I should move it close to the door or back into a corner)

  • Move drawers, small bins, and other odds and ends that won't go in truck very well over to the new place by car (the old people weren't fully out yet this morning, painters are touching up the walls in the new place this afternoon, and a fridge is being moved in at some point today so I have to wait until all that is finished and will have to move the small stuff this evening or won't be able to do it at all today)

So basically I know things are going to get hectic later today or tomorrow but right now there isn't much I can do and I'm kind of bored and anxious.


What's Taters, Precious?

Doesn't the in-between stage of moving suck? It always makes me feel so depressed to see everything in boxes and nothing on the walls.

What's the roommate status?

I don't mind packing or unpacking at all, the problem is exactly that in between stage when you are stuck living with the boxes and somehow the things you thought you could pack turn out to be the things you need and the things you left out you don't need at all. It is annoying. I just want to get everything moved over and start unpacking and settling in. I actually like that part.

No news on the roommate front. I'm talking with people who are mostly out of town right now so everyone wants pictures and I don't have any. Part of the moving small things over to the new place tonight and making sure it is ready for me to really move in tomorrow is going to include taking photos and sending them to the potential roommates.

Good luck with the move! Pictures when you get settled in. Or, you know, I could visit you :)

I can do pictures and you are welcome to come visit. Of course, if you're going to come you're going to have to make it very soon or much later since I'll be in NYC 12 July to 8 Aug. It doesn't sound like all that long, but it is a full four weeks.
