Goddess of.. Moving On Out!

Life is passing me by these days. I'm moving out of my apartment, and moving to Paris. It's official now, well, it shall be truly official when I get my visa in a couple of weeks.

Since I came back from vacation, I had a million things to do for my visa. I sent in my application last Wednesday.. and then, I needed to start packing.

I'm moving out this Sunday, as I'll be working during the week (official move-out date is July 31st). Thankfully, I've managed to sell most of my big pieces of furniture (bed, sofa-bed, dining set) but we'll be moving the rest (bookcases, nightstands, leather chair & ottoman) along with lots of boxes this weekend. I guess it's really the ideal scenario, but my mom is seriously stressing me out. "Yes, I know I'm last-minute. No, I cannot turn back time. Yes, I will be done on time."

The good news is: Nick is here. He's helpful and loving.. that's everything I need. Don't get me wrong, my mom is loving too, but just a little stressful right now.

We're dropping items at 3 spots (my mom's, Nick's mom's and Nick's dad's place) and I feel bad about invading everyone with my boxes.. but really, I don't have a choice. Paying for storage would come up to about $1,000+ for a year. I just hope I can minimize the number of boxes.. it's hard to purge when you moved just a year ago and purged back then too.

I'm starting to hate "stuff". I'm really glad I made a serious effort not to buy too much of it in the past year.

We'll be spending the next few weeks at my mom's and at Nick's mom's place.. until the BIG move.

Blog you later,

How exciting! Good luck with the move- I know exactly what you are going through as my big move is happening in less than two weeks too (although I am not moving overseas).

I am currently going through the same thing. I am moving abroad to be with my fiance. I sold all of my furniture and now its the little things I have to decide to keep or not. I don't want to bring a lot with me. I was worried I wasn't going to be able to take my car with me but I found a great overseas car shipping company, I am so happy I get to take my car. One more week until my big move!!
