Moving On, Out, and In


“Where’s the cat?” That’s my title for the above photo. We are officially moved!

A week ago, our landlady called and asked us to move out 10 days early, giving us 6 days to move all our stuff and clean the apartment. It was the week when Madison was 90 degrees and 90% humidity everyday, the very hottest week of the year. Our schedule quickly became: haul heavy stuff in the morning, lunch, nap, haul lighter but still heavy stuff at night, collapse, rinse and repeat.

Since we only moved a block, we didn’t do much pre-packing and we simply rented an open bed trailer, making small trips back and forth. I learned that even if you are just moving a block, it still means you have to pick-up every item you own. And man do we own a lot of stuff!

Sunday night, apartment clean and keys turned in, it seemed unreal that we actually own and live in this house. It feels so very fancy after our ill-kept apartment with the bathroom from hell and a kitchen from purgatory. I’m so happy to be done with that place. Yay!

Now to begin the unpacking. Our goal this time around: Throw stuff out (or sell it for cheap)!

  1. Congratulations! Glad to hear that purgatory is truly finite. Have fun throwing things out!
