Sanity in the midst of chaos

I'm still slogging along here. When did I get all this stuff? I guess if I opened cabinets and closets, I would see that I've made a pretty good dent in it all. You see my goal is to have moved the small stuff -- smaller than a TV -- to my new place myself before Saturday. Oh, and I'm not moving books. The movers can do that. But I do have to box them all. And I think that if I keep at my current pace, I should probably be able to make it happen. Even with the couple of speed bumps this weekend.

You see, my mother is still in town. That means that yesterday she insisted on a tour of the new place. I asked if she could help lining shelves. She declined. Then today I had to go to dinner at her house since she's leaving tomorrow morning. Fortunately I was able to excuse myself after an hour. Oh, and she had the nerve to ask over dinner didn't I have anyone helping me with this stuff. I thought that was hilarious.

But yeah, I'm working away right now so that in some ways the first few days in the new place won't be stressful. For me, this means that the kitchen stuff must all be unpacked in place. My clothes as well. Oh, and the linens. The only thing that might make things stressful is if the cable guy fails to show up on Saturday because that will mean that I will be without TV and internet. But that's not going to happen. If they know what's good for them.

I am happy to say that the correct refrigerator showed up yesterday. As well as the washer and dryer and my piano. It's starting to feel like home.

Oh, and I took the liberty of emptying out the fridge in my apartment this morning and taking the stuff to the new place. Because you can't really appreciate the beauty of this baby unless it's stocked. And I still owe y'all a photo of the freezer because it is truly a thing of beauty. Although I need to read the manual because the thing scared the bejezus out of me when I was stocking it. Apparently there is an alarm that goes off if the door stays open too long.

So yeah. That's my week ahead. But as I was unpacking the ice cream maker, I started dreaming of the flavors I'd be making soon. All while getting ready for that trip to New York.
