I hate this part.
So I’m moving again. Let’s make a tally shall we? That means since January 2010, this will be move number 10. Ten times ya’ll. Ugh, that’s a lot.
A few of those times have been easier than others. Like the 4 moves to and from Korea – that was easy since I was just moving three suitcases. But it’s times like this, where I have to move a lot, that I hate.
I currently have no dishes. I have a coffee mug, silverware, and some plastic take away containers that I use for leftovers. It’s ok since I have my meals planned out for the rest of the week to require no cooking at all.
When I moved to this place during the last week of November, it was with the assumption that it wouldn’t be permanent but probably a year or two here, or maybe just until summer. So summer it was. Which is fine, and I don’t really have a lot to move – no furniture thank goodness! But now I’m moving into another fully furnished place with a fully stocked kitchen as well. I don’t need all my kitchen things I have now – like the brand new microwave I was gifted at Christmas or the new kettle I bought during boxing day sales. The new place has all that. I’ll be keeping my pots/pans/baking things with me. I really don’t need to, but I love them. But the dishes will be going to storage. Thankfully in two weeks I’m taking a vacation to my parent’s and can take all that stuff there with me. And bring back other boxes of stuff in its place.
I seriously hate packing. The moving I don’t really care about (it’s a nice little workout for the day), but it’s the packing up all my stuff that I hate. How did I get my two sets of dishes (enough for 8 people) here with only one original box? I’m glad I was smart enough to keep all my boxes from moving the first time and purchasing things since I arrived.
I move on Friday which means I will be spending Thursday packing up all the rest of my things, plus laundry and a little more cleaning just so it’s ready for the next person to move in on Saturday. I just pray that I have enough boxes and stuff here now to do it. I’m hoping to make the move in one trip. Finger’s crossed, you guys.
It also means that I will be taking a break from posting for a little bit. I’ll still be around, reading your blogs and checking comments and things. But I think I should make the time to actually pack since I have been putting it off until almost the very last minute. Like always.
