Moving: Part One

28 Aug

 

 

I have FINALLY finished my move and I am sitting here at work exhausted, but I feel accomplished because there were a few points in the process I just wanted to throw my hand ups and say “Eff it.”  This move has shined some light on some of my bad habits and the first of those is procrastination.  As I spent half the night finishing up packing and moving things into my car (Honda Civics are surprisingly roomy) I kept kicking myself for not doing most of this sooner.  I knew for over a month now that this day was coming and I will admit, most days when I got off work, I was a slug.  I just sat and procrastinated.  In the eleventh hour, I could be found hauling boxes and whatnot up and down FOUR flights of stairs and FINALLY purging things I really didn’t need.  I won’t be moving again any time soon, but I have got to get better about procrastinating.  Waiting until the last minute causes a lot of undue stress and money.

 

Pintrest is the gateway drug for a DIY addiction.  I started pinning, and then I ended up wanting to do everything I saw, which lead to me, down at Lowes in the appliance section (yeah it doesn’t make sense to me either).  I almost fainted when I saw what it cost to replace a refrigerator and my eyes crossed at carpet prices.  I am going to have to learn to shop around.  I have amazing friends who have given me tips on where to buy cheaper versions, but the best advice I heard all night was to, take my time.  I get overwhelmed because I am trying to do everything at once.  To break all my projects down into something manageable, I have created a list from small to large, then cheapest to expensive.  I don’t have to paint ALL the rooms in a day.  I can start with the bathroom, then move on to another room another month or so down the line.  As with my running, I have to remember to pace myself.
