Sarah Saturday!

I’m SO tired right now.

Well so this week has been a blur of packing, running errands, and work. Not really fun stuff at all. Yesterday I worked 2 am to 2 pm, like always, but then I had to be back in by 10 pm because someone called in. So, I got out of work yesterday, had to run a few more errands, went home and packed, went out for hibachi, and then showered and came back to work – I get out at 10 am, and then it’s MOVING DAY! Which is not as exciting as it sounds.

I’m trying to be more cheerful about the move. I’m sad to leave the apartment we’ve been at for the last 3 years because it was big and I loved it, but it got too damn expensive because they raised the rent twice. The new apartment is a lot smaller – only 1 bedroom, tiny tiny kitchen (seriously don’t even think we can fit our microwave in there), no dishwasher for me to use instead of a dish drainer, bottom floor instead of the top floor… but it’s a lot cheaper, which means that we’ll be able to save for a house, which is really the whole point. So YES! New apartment! Yay! I said YAY, DAMMIT.

MovingΒ  today brings me to another point – I won’t have internet access until I come back to work on Friday – our internet at home isn’t getting turned on until the 9th. So just FYI, I won’t be around the blogosphere as much this coming week. I have some posts scheduled, but I probably won’t be able to get around to visiting all your blogs and such 😦 I’ll be on Twitter and Instagram though, and I’ll try to read some blogs on my phone, but my phone super sucks right now and that might be too much for it to handle.

Alright, that’s what’s happening on my end.Β I only have an hour and a half of work left, so I should probably try to get a few other things done (I spent part of the morning watching True Grit – It was alright, not as good as the book of course).

Wish me luck surviving today… I’m going to need massive amounts of caffeine. I hope you guys having a great weekend!

  1. Good luck, Sarah! You’ve got a shit-ton of things to do but I know you’ll prevail. It’s hard leaving a place you’ve grown to love, but as you say, just think about that future home y’all are saving for!

  2. Oh good luck! Moving is rough, but it’s good when it’s all over. I had to move six times in five years after college, and I always set myself a particular moving-day goal (like, I’ll have everything in the right rooms by the end of the day; or, I’ll unpack just the kitchen stuff by the end of the day), and once I hit that goal I have a prize prepared for myself. Like some really yummy dinner, or something like that. It helps a lot, even though moving is still really hard. Good luck good luck!

    1. Thanks! The actual putting stuff away happened surprisingly fast – it’s the second day, and the only thing I really have left to do is my books – THAT’S the big prize, I’m saving it for tomorrow.

  3. You sound busy!
    We saved for a house for about three years before being able to afford one (and we were lucky that it only took that amount of time). Having come through the other side, I can say that it’s definitely worth the sacrifices.

  4. Good luck with the move! The blogs will still be around when you return πŸ˜‰ (As I’m sure you’ll notice when you take a look at your reader after n+ days of Internet). Moving to smaller/cheaper apartment to save up money for the house is definitely a wise thing to do for your future.

    1. Thanks πŸ™‚ The internet is really moving way too fast for me to keep up, lol. 56 emails to sort through and a bunch of comments – I can’t wait to have the internet turned back on! One more week…

  5. Good luck with the move! (Or, you’ve probably done by now, so I hope it went well.) And I understand from my experience moving is hard and messes with your time, so don’t worry, we’ll still be here.

    1. Thanks πŸ™‚ We actually DID settle in quickly, for the most part. I have to unpack my books, and the honeyman needs to finish the bedroom (he has a lot of clothes & shoes and various stuff all over the place).

      YES. I have to keep remembering that. Right now I’m just the TEENSIEST bit homesick for our old apartment – not surprising since we lived there for 3 years and it was really comfortable. I’m sure I’ll get used to the new small apartment… and if not, then even more motivation to save money for a house!
