Oh Monday... you came way too fast. I need another weekend to recover from my weekend... Such is the plight of a someone that is half-way through moving. Here's how I filled my weekend.
I took Friday off so I spent most of the day schlepping things from my unit on the 13th floor to my new unit on the 8th floor. Thank God for elevators. I managed to move 5 out of 6 of my book cases and all of my books. My bedroom went from looking like this...
To looking like this.
I'm so glad that the property manager let me have the keys to my new unit early. The movers come this Friday but it was nice to gradually move things down to the new place.
Mid-day, I took a break from schlepping boxes to pick up tickets to this show, which I'm so excited to go to!!
On Friday night, we went to a get-together at a college friend of Phil's. We hadn't seen the couple that hosted for 6+ months, I think, so it was fun to catch up with them and see the other couples that we hang out with on a regular basis.
On Saturday morning I joined my club for a hilly long run. The run is entitled "Potpourri of Hills" and is probably the most challenging long run route our club does. I ran 11 miles and was definitely tired at the end! I know Minnesota is less hilly than other parts of the country but those 11 miles felt tough!
On Saturday afternoon I went to a charity bowling event. I bowled terribly so opted to only play 1 game. I got to hang out with my friend Amanda and her family so it was a really fun afternoon. On Saturday evening Phil came over and we did more packing/moving. I was so over moving at this point, but Phil kept saying, "let's just do one more trip" over and over and over again. We ended up moving most of my clothes and the contents of 3 closets. We got quite a bit done and I was glad that he pushed me to move more than I thought we would that night. By the time we called it quits, it was after 8 so I ordered GF pizza and we called it a night pretty early as we were both exhausted.
Sunday consisted of - you guessed it - more moving. I unpacked the rest of my books and moved my patio furniture and some of my kitchen stuff. I wrapped up all of my moving tasks by 3 pm on Sunday because I just needed some time to just 'be'. I was on my feet for much of Friday and Saturday so my legs were definitely feeling it by Sunday afternoon. I had the best intentions to get a workout in or go to yoga but I decided to count the schlepping of boxes as a workout.
My friend Amanda comes over tonight to help me pack up my kitchen. Once that is done I think I will feel ready for the movers to come. This week is going to be a bit hectic as I have a work dinner tomorrow night and book club on Wednesday night so I am glad I got so much done this weekend!
Life is feeling a little chaotic/overwhelming right now. Besides moving, I'm also coordinating a volunteer night for run club and then I go to Virginia for that hellaciously long presentation... So I am going to take a little 2 week break from blogging. I'll be back at the end of May with photos of my new home!
When was the last time you moved? This is my 3rd move in 25 months - I am SO SICK OF MOVING (yes, ALL CAPS). Moving 5 floors is easier than moving 1,000 miles, but it's still so much work.
