And Finally....

To let all of you know. Larry and I are moving! We did get the apartment that we could afford and are STILL waiting to sign the contract **grumble, grumble** but we've been assured that it is ours and were given the tentative date on when we would be able to move in.

It will most likely be available this coming Saturday or Sunday. I started packing Thursday and believe it or not, I'm nearly finished. I'm dragging my feet about doing anything else, since the front room is almost bursting with boxes and I still have to pack our linens, our bedroom and wash all our laundry before I can pack it.

On a sad note, Lars and I will NOT be able to afford internet for the first 3 months after we move, so I might only be able to get on when we come over to my mother-in-law's on Saturdays to do our laundry. Life will be veeeerry different. No cable, no internet. But it should be good. It'll force me to get out and take walks now that it's almost cool enough to do so again, and now that I know where everything is, I can finish my high school scrapbook, start on our wedding scrapbook, and keep up on Jonathan's scrapbook. I just need to find a dining table to fit in our eating nook so I can lay all the stuff out. I'll also need to get a baby gate to keep the paper-eater away from all my goodies. =0

I'm not excited anymore. I got tired of waiting to hear back from the apartments, so the anticipation wore off before it even had a chance to begin. Since it's only a week away, it doesn't seem real. I've lived with my in-laws so long, I've almost forgotten what it feels like to be independent.

I think I'm just spoiled being able to flip on the tv whenever I want. I love being able to hand over the baby when he's tired of me and Lars isn't able to watch him due to making lesson plans. At college I never had cable or a computer with internet, but I had a big social life. Oy. My world revolves around a child who doesn't walk or talk. I have a feeling I'm very near losing my sanity thinking about all the empty sound I'll be living with...

I know this will be good, but now that it's actually happening, all I can think about are the things I have to leave behind. All of the sudden, living here doesn't seem so bad- until someone does something that makes me crazy, which is often....

LOL! I love your comment after the post. Moving is huge and even though you'll miss the internet you will LOVE having your own place.

Glad to hear you're still excited, but what you did say earlier was very familiar. Talking about moving to Boise for months (almost a full year) was very different once we began to move out. Suddenly I wasn't sure I really wanted this and still felt that way. But I love it here, even though still no friends

Yay Excitement! Please tell me you have a Stereo? That way you can at least dance and sing when you're feeling a little stir-crazy.

OH I know how it is to be in an apartment with nothing. We didnt have cable or internet up until a few weeks ago and we moved in here in the beginning of March! What we did was rent a lot of movies from the library. Check out the different libraries in the area, Downey, Norwalk, Whittier etc. and see if they have a good movie collection. You might just luck out and they are free to rent, and you cant beat that!
