Backpedaling

So we are not, I repeat, NOT moving! And this is where I start backpedaling... I need to rescind our 30-day notice, unpack packed boxes, resubmit our names for an apartment change, blah blah blah. But I suppose it's a good thing:

  • I got rid of unnecessary junk that we've been holding on to for years
  • I GET TO DECORATE FOR CHRISTMAS! YAY YAY YAY!!! :)
  • We get to stay in our ward (sorry WP ward, no Harrisons for you, sad clown face)
  • We get the entire (tiny) place to ourselves instead of sharing it with someone else
  • We will still qualify for Bridge Housing Scholarships, woot
  • Our not-so-great neighbors are in the process of moving themselves, so we will have (hopefully) better neighbors to stare at (our patios face one another)
  • We get the entire (tiny) place to ourselves instead of sharing it with someone else
  • In any event, we won't be here longer than 18 months anyway (once Bryan is done with school, we'll more than likely be in Washington or the East Coast)
  • We get the entire (tiny) place to ourselves instead of sharing it with someone else (gee, do I sound like I was worried about that one?)

In all honesty, the closer we got to moving, the closer I got to dreading it. This is coming from the girl that before she moved to Cali, she would move once every two years, give or take. I'm not a newbie to moving at all, and I'm always up for adventure. I just... was dreading it. So now I suppose I don't have to dread any more! And I can finally paint these white walls, ack! :)

Hi Sarah ... happy that you aren't moving because we're in the middle of one and it SUCKS!!! Question for you. I was wondering if your husband has a truck-mounted steam cleaner? Our landlord requires it for our move-out. Fun! If he does, I was hoping he could come and clean our carpets on Weds ... Short notice, I know.

Hope all is well!
Michelle

You should move to Charlotte, NC. It's so amazing and inexpensive! I love it here!! I'll be happy to tell you anything you want to know and send you any info. It's way better than Washington.
