Time is Flying!

My last few weeks in San Diego have been flying by! I can't believe I only have 8 days left... My Mom came down from Saturday through Wednesday to help me pack and purge. That helped me get rid of a LOT of stuff! (Who knew I was a card hoarder?!) My life got consolidated into 11 small boxes, a duffel bag suitcase from Costco and a large backpack. I'm taking the suitcase and backpack with me to NY, and everything else will be shipped once I get settled and find a place!

My to-do list is very close to being done. I got through so much with my Mom and I can't thank her enough for her generosity/love/support during all of this. I'm not the most competent packer and she definitely turned me into one over the past few days! (She also gave me $100 to be used as "NYC spending money" for the first week or so while I'm there on cabs/lunch/snacks/etc. LOVE!) The big items I have left from my list are selling my car, finding a sublet in NY (might be easier once I'm there but I'm waiting to hear back from a few places) and canceling my car/renter's insurance. I also made $153 from selling various furniture items on Craigslist which will definitely help me out over the next week or so, including covering a hefty dry cleaning bill. And to top it off I'm throwing a dinner party/potluck this weekend and am really excited about it! Almost all my friends are coming and I plan on making this because, well, I want to try something new and delicious.

Just for fun, here's a picture of me and the 10 boxes that went into storage! (The 11th one is my small flatscreen TV which I'll put in on the last day.)

Woah lots of boxes! I've never had to do a cross-country move before... good luck, and I can't wait to hear about your NYC adventures.

I'm nervous and excited for you all at the same time! That's a lot of boxes, but when you think about it, that's not really that much when your whole life is all in there!

Good luck with the move!

Getting close to 30.... March 22, 2011 at 2:08 PM  

Wow!! 11 boxes is impressive! Mom's are the best :-) wishing you the best on your move! Good luck with the rest of your to-do list!
