The redhead, Dr. Whyvonne & Jiffy all helped me move this weekend. As usual, no matter what I do, I continue to be indebted to Whyvonne & Jiffy. They helped my move crap from their house to my new apartment...and even worse they helped me move a matching love seat and sofa bed. The bed portion of the sofa bed, we removed from the frame and then had to reassemble once inside. Apparently, I'm neither as handy nor as spatially oriented as I thought I was. We had some significant challenges, and very sadly didn't have a camera during some awesome photo ops.
The apartment is starting to shape up. I have a generous box for the thrift store and the empty boxes are quickly diminishing. Through this whole process, I can say these two things as truths:
- Hiring movers is worth the money.
- Craigslist rocks.
The biggest adjustment for me has been having my cat Luther with me. I don't know if he was this affectionate previously or if he's trying to make up for 9 months away from me all in the span of a couple days. He is definitely a love-cat though. I do have to complain a little bit though. From knitting catnip mice for the many kitties in my life, I keep catnip in my knitting basket. Yesterday afternoon, Luther found the catnip tub and pulled the entire thing out of the bottom of my knitting basket. In an effort to save myself having to vacuum up catnip, I stuck the tub in my nightstand drawer... This morning at 5am, Luther was banging about trying to open the nightstand drawer, and had nearly opened it enough to get the catnip out. I'm going to have to find a much better place for the catnip.
