Right now, I’m sitting on the couch in our apartment watching the TV as the movers take everything out. They’re saving the TV and couch for last, which is pretty nice of them I think.
Yesterday they came and boxed everything they could box up. Today is the last minute wrapping and taking all the boxes from yesterday. Unfortunately they told us yesterday they couldn’t take any liquid products that have been opened….Febreze bottles, laundry detergent, a huge container of Softsoap we’d only opened and used to refill one bottle, etc. So this morning we got up early and sealed everything tightly. We put all the smaller bottles into huge ziplock bags and put them inside other boxes underneath other stuff.
I work at 11:30am today…another 45 minutes away. I managed to find an unsecured network to latch on to so I can update since our cable modem is already broken down. The movers should be done while I’m at work today so Nick is going to start our cleaning checklist.
It was so cute last night. We have this huge pile of stuff next to the bed that’s going with both of us in our cars so we were trying to keep it separate from everything that was getting packed away for the next three months. However, that spot next to the bed is usually where Maggie sleeps on her bed. Instead, we had to move her bed across the room. She came into the room last night and looked at the huge pile and up at us all sadly. Then she got in bed and just gave us huge puppy dog eyes. So we called her up in bed with us. She got up, immediately found a spot in between us down by our feet and curled right up. So cute. She has slept in bed with me just a couple of times when Nick worked the night shift. You could tell she just didn’t like to be very far away from us last night.
Tonight we’re stuck sleeping on the floor on a sleeping bag with a blanket. Should be comfy. Ironic we had Maggie join us up in bed last night and tonight we’ll be joining her on the floor. J
We’re going to do brunch tomorrow at Saffron (yay- best pancakes ever!), I work at 11:30am again, Nick is going to do the apartment walkthrough with a member of the apartment building’s staff at 1pm, then as soon as I get off work we should be good to go.
We probably won’t get into Baltimore until 2 or 3am or so. But luckily there won’t be any traffic. When we leave early we always have to worry about either morning or evening rush hour traffic in VA/DC/MD. So at least we get to avoid that. And considering we have gotten up at 6:30/7am the past two days (and will be getting up early again tomorrow), it will be nice to sleep in on my mom’s futon on Thursday.
Alright- I’d better start getting ready for work. And I should probably put my laptop away again.
Wish us luck!
