Make it lucky #13

Places of residence since 2000-
2000- Falls Church, VA (in that basement studio apartment I loved and still miss)
2001- moved to Fredericksburg mid-year, went to Romania
2002- moved to Purcellville, VA, moved back to Fredericksburg, didn't join the Navy, and went to mooch off Juli in Palm Bay, FL for several months. Eventually moved into an apartment in Orlando.
2003- moved from first apartment to second apartment in Orlando in January. In October moved back to Fredericksburg. By November I was in Prague.
2004- started off the new year by moving to Santa Monica, CA. Was back in Fredericksburg by mid-March. Moved into first Arlington apartment (temp situation) in June. By the end of August moved into my real apartment in Arlington. Have been here ever since.
Tomorrow- move back to Falls Church.

That would be 12 moves (i don't count prague as a move) in 6 years. How can someone who has moved 12 times in that short period of time have as much junk as I do?? I am so tired of packing and moving. I am a pro at squeezing stuff into a car and driving it cross country over and over. But for this particular move I have less motivation than I usually have. In about 9 hours my "movers" (aka my family) will arrive to not take my stuff to my new house, but to take it to my parents' house. In exchange for me playing hostess in their house for a week while my mother is gone and company is visiting, they are coming to move me a week earlier than I intended to move. So I'm just realizing that this move really means living out of a car for a week. Ugh. Blech. I have no motivation! It's unlike me to procrastinate like this, but I can't help it this time. Someone save me!

    Look into the mirror and ask yourself,"Why am I moving again?"

    Just remember how much you dislike the management at your current apartment, and how much better your new place (and roommates) will be.
    Then, remember that you'll find a "special" box or 3 when you unpack.

    Oh, and don't think of it as living out of your car for a week. The better term is "Vacation" ;)

    Good luck with the move.

  4. Thanks Z!

    One night at my parents' house and I've already been told to go to bed at 10 pm, and reminded to get up for church. If nothing else, I have at least remembered why it is I don't live at home.

    No problem.

    Re: Subject: And here I thought I was about the only one who doesn't fear/ dislike the number 13; it's what my screen name means. Well, that, and a few other things I didn't think of at the time, but work well.
