Making Use of Our Storage Unit... FINALLY!
Sometime in April, Tim and I started packing up parts of the house in boxes for what we thought was going to be a relatively quick decision making process and a move. There were several reasons for this:
- We both have long commutes out of the city to work.
- Our place is pretty small - 804 square feet.
- Our condo fees keep going up, and the wage tax in Philly just isn't going away.
- We thought Tim might move to Costa Rica for awhile.
So, despite the fact that we love living here and we love being in Old City, it just seemed that things were not going our way to stay.
So, Tim rented a storage unit for us.
And we packed up a lot of stuff.
And then we waited.
And then we decided nothing.
And then we got busy.
And the piles of boxes were in my already small living room forever.
And we continued paying for our storage unit.
And I got increasingly more annoyed.
And winter hit and we had nothing warm to wear.
And actually had to start unpacking boxes.
And by this time I was almost livid.
So, you will be happy to hear that today, we drug our a**es out of bed at 6:30AM (despite having had a great dinner and drinks - more accurately drinks and dinner - with our friend Liz the night before, and feeling like we probably could have used more sleep), and we headed to the UHaul place. We brought the truck back and loaded up as much of the stuff as we could and headed over to the storage unit.
See here the (lack of) evidence of our labors!
So, we finally have that out of the way. On to the next question - should we stay or should we go?
*I am obsessed with clocks - huge, artsy clocks. We have two clocks that are over a 3 feet in diameter and many other creative time keeping devices. As I type this, it does make me wonder why I don't wear a watch. Well, I guess it is because I check the time on my cell phone, and I always have my cell phone. I am one of those people who thinks she hears her cell phone ring and beep even when it isn't ringing or beeping. And I blame my previous employer for that.
