I'm finally all settled into my new pad. My TV isn't set up but I can connect to someones Internet so that's all the entertainment I need.
Let me tell ya about the move. Thur night I had planned to clean up the condo before moving in on Fri. Well, the floor guys were NOT done yet. AND they were cutting the wood INSIDE. Do you know how thick that layer of dust was?
Ah, so I had my girlfriend in tow but we couldn't do anything. SO I dragged her back to my old apartment, luring her with wine. We managed to pack up everything (and polish off 2 bottles). However after 2 bottles, we thought we needed another so we walked to the liquor store, thinking this was a good idea. Drunk packing is fun. We were very resourceful, however upon unpacking I couldn't find anything. Bathroom items were mixed with kitchen items. It was actually quite funny.
Friday morning my dad calls bright and early. I was seriously hurting but had to get up and hide the evidence of our debauchery the night before. (Yes, I'm 33 and still scared of my dad's scornful eye.) We decided to move all the heavy items first. I was dusting off my bedroom set (the ONLY furniture I was keeping) and it occurred to me. I hate this bedroom set. It's bulky and hardly functional. It's that rustic pine with wrought iron that was popular about 10 years back. However 10 years at the beach had warped the wood so opening and closing the dresser drawers is practically impossible. And the bed frame is ginormous. Out of the blue I said, "let's just take this directly to Goodwill." I don't think I've ever seen my father so happy (he was going to have to carry that stuff up the stairs at my new place.)
So I did it. I got rid of every piece of furniture I own (except 1 chair and end table).
Now I'm not sure I have enough money to buy anything new.
In the meantime I have my mattress on the floor, my clothes folded in piles, my undies in a basket and I'm happy as a clam.
I'll post before and after pics soon.
PS: My appliances were delivered on Sunday. This is the first time in over 10 years that I have had a washer and dryer. Can you guess what I was doing all day???
