We're Getting So Close!

I actually feel like we are making progress with the packing. Today we gave one of our friends (who is moving into her first unfurnished apartment) a desk and chair, a bookcase, a filing cabinet, a grill, and lots of other miscellaneous stuff. We also took a bunch of random crap to Goodwill that we won't have room for in the new place. Tonight we are giving away our living room TV (we are getting a wall mounted one to save space), TV stand, and another bookcase (we have built-in bookshelves along one wall in the living room). Tomorrow we are giving our massive dining room table and chairs to a friend of the family (we will be using our patio furniture in our dining "nook"). So even though we had to get rid of a lot of stuff and it has been stressful orchestrating it all, I can finally see the light at the end of the moving tunnel! Let's hope my optimism sticks around tomorrow when we start packing up the U-haul and actually moving stuff out.

Now if only I could find time to study for my final tomorrow....perhaps in the morning?


  1. Hey jackie, im new to your blog. i was just over at love is blonde, reading about your 'obession', and i wanted to share this with you:

  2. Thanks for the comment. I'm always glad when things I write seem to help people. Definitely explore some of those websites and stuff. Most things are going to say to just do what you can and try to build off of it. If you feel tired at 1 mile, try to eek out 2 more minutes. Eventually it gets easier and you can add more. Best wishes!

  3. I want built-in bookshelves...

    I currently have three bookshelves that are full and about 33 piles of books around my apartment (keep in mind, it's a studio/efficiency!)

    This is not including the more then 100 cookbooks living in my kitchen.

    I have issues, I know!

  4. so jealous of your new built in bookshelves!!! luuuccckkyyy. we have four in our living room, and 2 in the bedroom. which is...about 2 bookshelves too many. good luck on the move!! :)
