This decision was probably one of the worst decisions I ever made. Because remember when I came down with Smallclosetasideous? Well I do. Note to self: Always ALWAYS take a bigger closet. Well, the day has come that the big room* opened up (which in-and-of itself is a whole other story. Thanks Mackenzi for getting engaged and leaving me. I might never forgive you).
Let it be called, The Great Bedroom Relocation of 2009. I had 15 days to move all my stuff....DOWNSTAIRS. I hear your judgment through my computer keys. You say; Really? It took you 15 days to move all your stuff? My answer to that is no. It took me 23.
I took a phased approach, which I have outlined below:
June 13th: Moved clothes on HANGERS down to new closet
June 14th: Moved bed, nightstand & toothbrush/toothpaste
June 16th: Moved dresser and bookshelf
This particular part of the move was sufficiently awkward. Kim & Penel offered their services in helping me move my heavy furniture. Yay for great parents. However, I also had a date this night. I tried to keep my parents away from meeting said date. I was not successful in this attempt to keep them out of my dating life. Date came. Met parents. I'm pretty sure this ultimately is why I am not dating him anymore. Blaming other people for the demise of my dating relationships is key to keeping my self-esteem in the positive.
June: 17 - 23: Moved remaining clothes from closet, shower and 1/2 of bathroom stuff (yes, just half), cleaned room.
July 5th: Moved remaining bathroom stuff.
I had so much unnecessary crap my roommates threatened to call me Pack Rat Nat. That is totally an unacceptable name, so I dejunked and my life is finally in order. Hell, if you are going to give me a nick name, make it something good. You know, something you wouldn't mind screaming over a large crowd. I don't know...something like, HUSSY! I'll get more dates that way.
A few pictures I took in the process:
This pile stayed in the room for a good week before I got off my lazy A and sorted through it.
