The good news is: we do have internet at our new home. The bad news is: it’s terribly slow and I won’t be able to access it from my mac. No idea how this is going to affect my blogging (doesn’t seem like I could spread the posts any thinner as it already has been the case …). Right now we are at Peter’s mom’s, catching up on stuff. I am using this opportunity to post and schedule some posts to create the illusion that I am back, and frequently posting … So let’s get started on this catching up business.
Days 3, 4 & 5 | After
Looks like we’re driving up on Sunday, not tomorrow, as I thought. That kind of rendered my melt-down last night pointless, since it’s a lot less stressful this way …
I would not have survived this week without coffee and Daft Punk. Somehow the line „Our work is never over“ got stuck in my head by the end of the week …
Day 2 | After
Obviously not much point in a before pic – see yesterday’s after.
I am actually quite content right now with the progress, which is not how I felt yesterday and this morning when I woke up. It seemed like my goal to get this entire move over with before my birthday (this upcoming Sunday) was completely insane, and as usual, when I cannot meet my completely unrealistic expectations, instead of adjusting them I felt like a failure.
Somehow things flowed today, though, and all we have left to do now is clear out the kitchen and the balcony, and clean everything. If we get the last of the packing done tomorrow, we have Thursday and maybe even Friday for the cleaning. That doesn’t seem so crazy, does it?
I am super-grateful for help we’ve been offered from Peter’s brother. Renting trucks to pick up here and leave there is insanely expensive, so Peter’s ever so resourceful mom came up with the genius idea of renting a truck at rent-a-wreck in Sundsvall, having Felix drive it down here, and the three of us driving the truck with our stuff and our car back up the next day. That way it’ll all be done in one fell swoop. I am almost a little in shock that Felix agreed to do this – I am really not digging the whole moving thing, and frankly I wouldn’t even help myself if I had that option. And I don’t even have to go to work right now!? So, really grateful, and I hope Felix will never move because we owe him big time after this …

This is what it looks like in our living room this morning:
