We are moving!!

And by “we”, I mean my husband and I. This means that, as you read this blog post, we are literally loading our stuff onto a truck and moving to a new apartment. Actually, professional movers will be doing the actual loading (thanks to three flights of stairs and a piano), but we’ll be there getting underfoot I’m sure.

Therefore, blog posts may not happen at all next week, though I will attempt to catch up with everyone via social media. You can visit me over on Facebook or watch the moving progress on Instagram. I’d love to chat with all of you while waiting for the boxes to unpack themselves…

Until then, here are some random thoughts, in no particular order.

#1. If we can’t know that the color we see is the same color someone else is seeing, how can anyone ever agree on home decor choices?

#2. Is Toby (the cat) currently licking my legs because he likes the smell of the soap I use OR is he just weird like that?

#3. Why does my body react poorly to the foods and drinks I love most? I envision my organs rubbing their proverbial hands together while saying menacingly, “She likes coffee and tomatoes huh? Well, we’ll just see about that.” Followed by maniacal laughter.

#4. This cheap set of rings I purchased last weekend reminds me of Pink Floyd, and that makes me happy.

Bonus points if you know why…

#5. I tend to only think of the pretty packaging needed for a gift after I’ve left the store with said gift and/or are minutes away from the start of the gift-giving event. This is inconvenient. Also, this is why I keep a stash of gift bags and tissue paper in the closet.

#6. I really don’t like that every reed in a box is different. I want them to all be the same. And perfect. And coffee-flavored.

#7. Dark chocolate espresso beans are small and seem innocent enough. They aren’t. It only takes three to give me false notions of grandeur.

#8. Currently, I’m listening to Beethoven’s “Pathetique” Sonata. It’s amazing. A piece of music that’s over 200 years can bring me to tears, and in an instant, remind me why I’ve devoted so much of my life to music.

Do you have any random thoughts or questions you’d like to add? Leave them in the comments section. I’d love to know that I’m not the only one whose brain works like this….

  1. Happy moving! My husband and I just finished that this week… so much stress (for me) and so many things to do! Just always remember- Target has the answer to most of your moving dilemmas 😉

    1. Haha, so true!! And yes, I can relate to moving stress. It seems like after unpacking a million boxes, I turn around and find more. I'm looking forward to everything being back in place 🙂
