This weekend was tiring to say the least. We got nearly everything packed up and out of the apartment though. I ended up not sleeping for a full 36 hours. Not exactly how I pictured that going but it did get done. Tomorrow I have more things to move to a storage unit and then we will be in prep week. For right now, I have stuff in my car, at my cousin’s house and here at my aunt’s house. So much stuff that still needs to be put away but at least I did everything at the apartment when I needed to.
I’m wanting to get my brakes done, wanting to get my car checked, wanting to make various things. Need to grocery shop and mark out the map. A lot of little things are left to do but at this point I’m perfectly fine with it.
I lost my debit card which was a big pain (understatement of my life) but I’m doing better about it. Thank God for sisters.
So, I think I’m almost ready to move on to the next step in this whole adventure thing. I’m definitely ready to get to sleep tonight too that’s for sure.

I was hoping to get it all done tonight but seeing as how its nearly midnight, I’ll be finishing up tomorrow. I’m not done but clearly it’s not all happening tonight.
I have J’s room to go through even though I’ve cleared it out some and my room to finish though I cleared up a good bit in there too. I have the bathroom to start on as well as the kitchen to finish. It may seem like I haven’t done much but I swear I have.
I’m so ready for tomorrow to be done with so that I can go through the apartment and just clean and get out of here. Turn in my keys and never look back. I’m so close.

We got our boxes in yesterday and J decided he would be brave (or crazy) and climb the big pile. He was standing at one point. Of course I said, “don’t fall! Let me get the camera!”
We’re not even close to being fully packed but we will be out of here by Sunday night. He’s happy as he doesn’t really like the apartments and I’m happy because, well, you know I’m ready to be out of here already. Stressed but ready.
We’re almost there.

I’ve been making some moves lately.
I put a for sale sign on the car. This one:
Filled it out and put it in the window. I took it to CarMax and didn’t get a good enough offer so I’m doing it myself. If it doesn’t sell then I’m going to keep it till I can pay for something else.
I put my written notice in. I can’t keep staying here so I’m hoping to be out in a week. That way I wont have to pay the rent for another month.
I’ve been slowly gathering things to take with us. I got $30 worth of free stuff so the little things are taken care of like sanitizer, wipes, tooth brushes, kleenex. All the things I don’t want to forget yet won’t buy from a convenience store cause they’ll cost too much there.
I have planned for us to be doing things for the next two months. There are places that aren’t too far away that we can go and see, things to do. Anything is better than sitting here.
Tomorrow between bouts of homework, I’m going to hopefully go through clothes and finally start packing us up, post things on craigslist (there are a few things that I want to keep but not much) and start working on getting boxes together. By Friday I want everything packed up. I have hope. I have to figure out our next step for sure for sure but at this point, I’m far less worried and much happier to be on the way out of here doing something else.
We will be traveling soon!
