You cannot depend on your eyes when your imagination is out of focus ~Mark Twain

That's just a good quote. :)

So, now that I've told the people in person the people who want to hear in person, I can post it on my blog. I would call Lindsay and Sarah too, but it's kind of late, and I only officially decided today, and since then I've had family dinner and a fireside. So, I hope you guys are okay with reading it on my blog.
Anyway, I've decided on a house. I'm going with number two, the house with ducks and the girl who likes musicals. I'm going to call over tomorrow and see if it's still open, and if so find a time to go over there and hash out details and measure the space (because I like to plan where I'll put everything. I'll start packing tomorrow night assuming it's still good to go. I have no idea how long it will take me to pack, because I've never moved, and I have a fatty lot of stuff. Hopefully it won't take too long. I don't want to live out of boxes. Another problem right there... finding boxes. Supposedly they have them behind grocery stores a lot of times and they are free to take. So you can be sure I'll be spending part of tomorrow driving around the back of grocery stores :) I'm pretty excited because it's something new, a little nervous, and definitely wondering where I'll find the time to pack, and after that to move. Because this saturday, I'll probably work in the morning, and then we have bookclub in the afternoon. And the saturday after that seems so far away. So, I might move on a random tuesday. Who knows? But anyway, wish me luck on the packing process. And if anyone has boxes they want to loan me ;-)
Thanks for reading!

I do not envy packing, but I am excited for you taking a milestone step! I'm cool with the blog notice... I'm the one who pressured you anyhow ;)

I was able to get boxes at the Dollar Tree on AZ Ave and Warner (I went in and asked and they had a bunch) because I didn't see any behind grocery stores for some reason (I had heard the same thing).

Moving does give you a good opportunity to sift through your stuff and decide what can stay and what can get donated.

Wee, hope all goes smoothly for you!

The dollar tree? Thanks for the tip. I'll check safeway and any grocery store I see on the way home from school, and if that doesn't work out, then I'll try that.

I'm definitely looking forward to sifting through everything. I have way too much crap that I don't need, and I've been wanting to get rid of it, but the opportunity never came up. It's easier when it's more forced on you :)
