There, and Back Again. [Repeat as Necessary]

Jeez, next time I decide to move, someone remind me to give away all my earthly possessions first. Every book, every box of crackers, every loose penny, you’ve got to interact with every single thing in your residence, whether it be to carefully pack it away or to hurl it into a dumpster screaming “Fuck you, dinner plate!”

Then you’ve got to get everything into boxes or bags, get all those boxes or bags into a vehicle, and then get them from the vehicle into a new space. It’s like Tetris, but with back pain.

I got a little mopey locking up my new place, looking at all the keys that I’d be getting rid of for my old apartment. Then I heard a seagull caw, and my grin lasted all the way to the freeway.

  1. Now for the even more fun part where you realize that you threw away something that you really needed. This will happen roughly every 3 days for a month and then the rate will slow down until it peters out in about 6 months.

  2. Happens to me all the time Amanda. Especially since I travel between Albuquerque and Las Cruces all the time (only 3 hours if you go the speed limit). I’m also disorganized to begin with.

  4. Wow, can I relate - I had to move twice in 6 months. A friend of mine said re:stuff - two moves is as good as a fire.
    No matter how much stuff I get rid of, I still can’t believe how much stuff I have.
    But remember -moving is a bitch, but good exercise. Your pecs will be so cut by the time you’re finished.

    Good Luck
