Er, actually that should be more like moving week. We’ve got most of our stuff at the new pad, but I haven’t even touched my office, desk or any of my art supplies or shipping materials. I really don’t have time to take off work, so I need that stuff taken over & set up right away, not lingering in boxes while we figure out what new shelfing systems to buy. Plus it’s a little hard for me to let go of the old place (where I’m sitting right now as I type this). We’ve been here for 2 and 1/2 years. I love being able to walk 2 blocks to little markets & coffee shops & indie clothing stores. I’ll miss my neighbors. And I know eventually the new place will feel like “home” too, but right now? This feels like home, even when it’s almost empty.
The pug on the other hand? Not having any trouble moving. He’s already explored every nook & cranny of the new house with his usual pug enthusiasm. Have pig, will travel. 😉
Fortunately my mother-in-law goes home tomorrow & then my oldest friend from Edmonton arrives for a 4 day visit. I don’t have time to be sad! And sometimes that’s exactly what one needs – a little distraction to get you over the mopey hump & on with your life.
So. Coffee, packing, no moping. Oh & lots of mopping. 🙂
