My shopping list for tonight

2 boxes from the shipping department (they're gonna be a pain to drag home on the bus though)

Packing tape

Box or two of big ol' garbage bags to wrap the boxes in so roaches can't get in

Newspaper from somewhere in HQ if I can find any (to wrap my Breyer horses in)

Disposable camera for capturing the moving experience

Some kind of pest killer strips to put in the boxes, just in case there are any roach eggs in there.

I haven't seen roaches in a long time, but I'm still afraid there are eggs somewhere. Because if you see roaches, that means there are lots more where you can't see them. But the last one I saw was something like a month ago. I'll still be careful about it, though. I may have to wrap my bed, and maybe the chair too. I'm not too worried about those, though, because I gave Dad's chair back without de-roaching precautions, and he hasn't complained yet. :)

So tonight, since I probably won't be online (Cory has stuff to do, so no chatting), I'll pack up the stuff I won't need for awhile, and try to find some corner to stick them in. First I'll take "before" pictures. Ah, memories. I wish I could speed up the waiting process. That's the most annoying part.

Ooh! Moving is fun, as is decorating a new place. :)

Maybe this is a really nosey question, but how long have you known your boyfriend, and how did the two of you decide to move in together? The reason I ask, is because my roommate is moving out and I've been bouncing around the idea of asking my S.O. to move in. I just don't want to mess things up by doing such a thing too soon...

Re:
Oh, it's not nosy at all. I like talking about it. :) Cory and I met last August, and started dating in October. So we haven't been together for very long, but we've both known since like November that we want to get married. We tossed around the idea of living together for a long time, but only now are we finally doing something about it. For us, it was mostly my Mom making the trouble. Ha

Hm, I just started dating Jesse in January. It seems a little early for us, so I don't want to wreck things up by moving too quickly. I just might keep the apartment without a roommate for now, and see how things look in a few months.

It sounds like the two of you have a really good thing!

Re:
I think that's probably the best idea for you. Although it does help rental-/utilities-wise... but it's also really really nice to live alone.

Yeah, we do! :)

Wanna help us load and unload the U-Haul, then? :)

I totally would, if I were in your neighborhood of the country!

I hope you guys have a lot of fun, I'm a little jealous of the new adventure you'll have together. :)

You can just hop on a plane! It's just five hours...
