If you took a quick glance around our apartment right now you would have absolutely no idea that we are moving in just a few days.
There is absolutely nothing boxed up yet. In fact, there aren’t even that many empty boxes floating around waiting to be filled. There are still closets full of things, disorganization on the shelves and a mess in the dining room. Our apartment looks more like we just moved in than like we are moving out. For the record, move out day is Monday. We’ve been told that we don’t have to get it all done in one day by our landlord but no part of me wants to make this a multi-day process. Moving is such a giant pain in the butt, why on Earth would I want to stretch it out?
The gas and electric are still set up in my name and I have yet to call the companies to have them redirected into my landlords. The TV company and internet company have yet to be updated on the switch. Since we’re moving on a Monday, I need to take off of work (haven’t made that notification yet). Also, because it’s a Monday my brother and father will both be working which leaves us down two really big helpers. Have I mentioned yet how much I am panicking about this entire situation?!
For goodness sake, I am just not ready. I even made a to do list and I’ve been sticking to it, other than the packing part... My aching hips and back have left me a little discouraged about getting things ready to go. The other night I was in so much pain that I considered calling the whole thing off. Maybe it’s the amount of caffeine I ingested before writing this or the fact that my coffee tasted like it had three times the right amount of sugar in it, but I am freaking out. I can hear my boyfriend in my head right now, “calm down, everything is going to be fine.” If only that ever helped.
On the plus side, we are super close to having a larger space. A single level, beautiful apartment with high ceilings and an adorable little yard. We will be closer to Baby M’s best friend which means more play dates for him. The kitchen is bigger, the living room is enormous, the boys will be sharing a room soon and we can officially set up for the new baby. There are so many positives to this move happening right now but in realizing that it’s happening in just a couple days I’m feeling really overwhelmed.
P.S. I just had about a foot of hair hacked off my head and I feel absolutely wonderful about the way that I look right now despite my pregnant chubs and pregnant lady acne.
