I hate moving. In the last four years we've been in three different apartments and two different art studios. Our first move occurred just before Thanksgiving 2007 and now it's Thanksgiving 2011 and we are moving yet again. I guess that makes four apartments in four years if you include the one we moved out of in 2007 and the one we're moving into now. All this after living in the same apartment for 15 years. We're a frustrated family.
Last night Gusty spent the night with a friend and Denial and spent the evening watching films noir and arguing. We didn't even go out for a drink. Now it's Sunday morning and we need to get down to the serious business of putting our life in boxes, again. I guess the good part is that we're pretty good at it now. Denial is "no nonsense" packing like a machine. I tend to be slower and more sentimental about it. Oh well.
When the house is in such a state of disarray it's hard to think about meals, knitting, writing or any creative endeavor. The Christmas hats are on hold. The maple pecan pie is on hold. Homemade pizza, macaroni and cheese, quinoa cakes, coconut tofu curry all on hold. Heck everything is on hold. No two ways about it. This sucks. Having said that I’ll get on with my day.
The good part, in two weeks this will be over. We'll be moved in and semi unpacked. We'll have more space although we will certainly fill it up fast. I'll have my own crafting corner. This apartment will be cleaned up to the landlord's liking. Christmas will be on the way. The new apartment will fill with the smell of chocolate chip cookies and maple pecan pie. Until then boxes.
