She packs her bags and plans to run away.

Downsizing is hard. I sort of had this idea that I could fit everything I needed into my car and just drive it across country, but now that's seeming like a really daunting task. Not the driving across country part, that's going to be awesome and I'm really excited about it. It's the getting all my stuff in to a tiny Honda Fit that's the stressful part. Not only is it going to take some top notch packing and loading skills, it's going to require me to seriously cut back on what I "need". I've been trying to organize and get rid of stuff... I went through my DVDs and CDs, already found a buyer for my couch, and managed to get all my loose scrapbook pages in albums. But I don't feel like I've even made a dent.

Parting with possessions is hard. I like my stuff! Just not enough to ship it all to California... So, anyone want some furniture or clothes or DVDs? Seriously... most of it's gotta go!

I've pretty much applied for all the positions I'm interested in and I was supposed to have an informational interview today with a hospital out in LA but the guy never called me. And I've been looking at apartments but it's still really too soon. No one is booking yet for November. But I do think I found where I want to live, but they're still doing construction! That's about all there is on the big move so far. And now I've got a headache and too much to do. Later, skaterz.

What a move! What do you have furniture-wise? Let's chat, maybe we can work something out.

The couches and coffee table are spoken for, but I have a dresser (that oddly enough converts into a changing table), a small desk, a table and 4 chairs, a small work table, and a large bookshelf/entertainment center kind of unit.

I can't wait to move again because I want to do the same thing. We have so much crap that I can't wait to get rid of (or at least get a bigger place where we can fit it all). The one thing I learned about moving out of state is that once I got all my stuff delivered, I was like, "why the hell did I keep this?" I should have done a better job going through it. Oh well, I learned my lesson. You will get through it, hang in there!

Ahh, packing is the worst. I just have piles and I don't know how I'm going to fit it all in my car. I think I'm going to definitely be shipping some stuff. Time to go run around like a chicken with my head cut off!
