We're Moving!

...sorta. Our family is moving, but we're just moving around the block. The apartments where we live now are income-based, which was a blessing when Isaac was unemployed. And the rent was still pretty cheap for the first year that Isaac was working. But Isaac got another raise recently, and our rent is now a bit too high. We can get a regular apartment for less--one with lots more amenities.

It's been kinda stressful. Moving is always stressful, of course--it always freaks me out, even when it's a good move. But there was a bit of a lag between when we submitted our Intent to Vacate notice where we are, and actually hearing that we're approved for another apartment.  And packing is not fun. Packing when you don't know where you're going is less fun.

But now we know where we're going! I think we're going to be happy there. And I'm pretty sure we're going to save money there. *sigh*...so, back to packing.

  1. Yeah, moving is always a bit of a drag, but then when you get to your NEW place you get to find all the individual places you want to place your knick-knacks and that is what I like best about moving!! :)

    Good luck!!

  2. Just wanted to stop by and say THANKS for stopping by on my SITS day! Hope you have a wonderful weekend.

  3. Good luck! We are finally just settled into our new apartment. As I speak Mr. Black Sneakers is cutting up the last of the boxes!
    You'll feel better once you're there!

  4. Congrats on the new apt.! Moving is so exciting! We hope to be moving soon, too. So send your moving dust my way! And please be sure to email me your new address!! ::hugs::

  5. Good luck with everything - sounds like a good "move" for you:)

    Packing is such a hard thing to do - but just think, soon you'll be all at home in the new place.

    Good luck!


  6. As someone who hates moving, and whose last move was about a block a couple of decades ago, I can say that moving about a block counts as a move -- moving is not about how far it goes once you pack it and have to unpack it again, it's about having to pack it, move it (even a few feet) and then unpack it.

    I'm happy to show up and help you move it from the one place to the other. If I had to pack up all my stuff and get it ready to move in less than three months time, I'd be all fear and trembling.

  7. moving is not fun! but I always love the unpacking part (well, some of it) because I get to re-decorate in a new space.

    I have managed both income based and conventional properties-- and going away from the income based is less of a headache for everyone;)
