Here we go.
How are we all? Are we all well?
Today has been a rather interesting one. Interesting in the sense that I no longer have a cat attacking my cursor on the screen and biting at my ankles.
We need the apartment empty so that we can get the carpet cleaners in on Wednesday, so we had to take our cat to the cattery up the road.
It was an emotional moment. Sort of like seeing your child go off to school on their first day kind of moment.
What else? Well, my partner has his last day at work tomorrow and then on Wednesday we need to pack up the van.
We will be getting the van at 9AM, driving it to our apartment block – unfortunately depending on the size it might not even fit in the underground parking so we will need to find somewhere along the street to plop the van so we can load it.
Once the van is parked we will be needing to load the entire van to empty the apartment out so that the carpet cleaner can get to work at 2:30PM.
Time is really going fast now, things are starting to happen. We are going to be leaving for Melbourne on Thursday. Thursday morning we will be picking up our cat and dropping the keys off at the real estate agents – then on our way!
My feelings are a mixture between excitement and impatience. I just want to get it all over and done with, I can’t wait to just get out of this apartment.
I’ve been going bonkers sitting in here everyday for pretty much a month now with the impending wait of the move. Packing boxes, cleaning, stressing – ugh. To be in the final last days it is such a relief.
We were looking at our plan, and we think the drive will take about 10 hours. We will be needing to pull over and make pit stops of course, so it could be longer. Who knows!
Tomorrow my plan is to bring my laptop and phone with me to a cafe as we will have everything packed up for good. I’ll grab a coffee and pretend to look busy.
I am an important business human, typing away mindlessly at my laptop with a coffee. Doing.. important.. business stuff.
When really I will just be there for their WiFi and to be surrounded by company, as you do.
Speak soon guys!
