285: I Can't Seem to Stay in One Place

Guess what? I moved again (which would explain the absence of crafty posts; not very possible when all my stuff is packed up). That's right, after staying in my old new place for less than 5 months, I pick up and leave. Originally I was going to be there through December. Well, originally originally, I was going to be there through May of next year, but after the whole roommate debacle, the lease was changed to December. And then I found out my apartment wanted to kill me, or at least render me useless to the outside world. Something on/in the property was giving me a stuffy nose and a sore throat. I know that doesn't sound that bad, but when you have it every day, and the sore throat gets so bad that it's painful to breathe, let alone swallow, it's no fun. At first I thought it was a cold, or some extension of the Strep I had. But then it just kept going...and I would feel better after I went outside and away from the apartment. So we determined that I had to leave this apartment at once (this was on September 27) and in order to avoid paying another month's rent, I had to move out by October 2. And I didn't have a place to move to yet. Lucky for me, I found a place the day of, and signed the lease a day after. That has to be a record of some sort.

Packing everything up was no fun. I have way too much stuff, because I'm definitely a hoarder. I'm reminded of a post by Allie over at Hyperbole and a Half which I cannot seem to find. I know it was there because of this:

But I can't find it when I actually click on the link...

Anyway....thanks to everyone that helped me move. That would have been difficult (understatement) to do on my own. I had about 5 people help over two days, all of them much stronger than me, thankfully. No one helped me unpack, though, which is a good thing, since I'm very particular about where my things go. But finally, after about a week of unpacking, I'm pretty much done. There are some things I still need to hang up, or put somewhere else, but for the most part, I'm done. *phew*
