Mon: Lamenting that in 2 weeks I'd have to go back to school, Russ would have a busy week with RA training, and we would probably be moving all at the same time. Bored now. Stress coming. No actual move date.
Tue: New Maeser Hall Advisor needs to move in so we're going to move to a temporary apartment. I started packing!
Wed: Had to do all the big moving in one day. Tyler and Russ moved everything. I packed and set aside things we'd need out of boxes/storage for the next 2 or so weeks.
Thur: Spent most of the day moving little stuff with our car and cleaning our old apartment.
It ended up being a really crazy week, but it did feel good to be doing SOMETHING, even if it was only a temporary move. It all happened so fast, however, that I never really got a chance to say goodbye to our apartment. Maybe that sounds weird, especially because if you've ever been to our old apartment you know how tiny 20'x20' really is and all the quirks it had (including but not limited to: accordion church-style door to our bedroom, 5 ft wide kitchen, bed in the corner because the bedroom was narrow, cinder block walls, cable coming out of a vent in the floor). That being said, it really was our HOME! We lived there for 32 out of our 36 months of marriage so far.
Here's a little nostalgia to break up all the text in this post. It seems like most of these were taken when we first moved in. The longer we lived there, the more claustrophobic I felt, so I started putting more and more extra bookshelves and decorations into storage to open up the space.

|Hallway kitchen. You couldn't get to the fridge with the dishwasher open, but at least it HAD a dishwasher!|
