So much unpacking still to do.


Hello one and all. 
I thank you for tolerating my hiatus this past week as I got on the ball and moved into my 20s apartment!




First off, did you all listen to the raido broadcast last Wednesday on Women's View Radio? I think it went very well and I was having a blast. The ladies seemed to be surprised that just that morning I had movers inside my new place just hours before I talked with them.

First cup of coffee in the new place.

The movers came to the old place at 7:30 that morning. I went over there after work on Tuesday and just packed and finished up all night. They came, and after an hour, the apartment went from this...


to this.


Then they got all my stuff to the new place. Total move time, three hours and some change. They were a stellar group and the move was so stress free. 

After two days of sorting and unpacking.
From then on out it was time to unpack. This apartment has a great storage unit in the basement so I put some extra time that I rarely use like my printmaking and encaustic supplies. First things first, I had a sewing project to do, so I set up my machine.


From there it was laundry. I washed so much stuff and took a cab home from the Laundromat.


Then I went on and finished the kitchen. 

Yes, the cutting board slot is fully functional and I used it!
This cutting board came with the apt.

As of today, the kitchen is all set up. 
I mean, I unpacked the skillets, so that MUST mean I've moved in.
Pancakes for everyone!!

Okay, I'm exhausted. I'm going to sleep.

  2. Good going! We're not moving, but we're fumigating, which means that we're pretty much moving out before the exterminators come, so I totally understand. Moving is a pain, no matter how you look at it!
