moving up and out!
7:32AM on April 28, 2008
So my last blog entry was rickety at best considering I was using that voice recognition program to write it, so please excuse my errors.
Yesterday I got two leads on places to move into. One was the hotel I originally wanted to move into. I called them back and asked them if they were going to have any rooms become available soon and the owner said possibly a few on Friday, so that’s good but I am starting to think that place isn’t the wisest choice after all. It would cost 170 a week to stay there as well as 300 dollars of a deposit for both of my animals, but the good news is that I’ve ALWAYS wanted to live out of hotel. I think it would be so awesome to have maid service and not have to worry about moving any of my real shit over there since it’s already furnished.
The other apartment is still in this area but a little out of the way down towards the poor area which I am not exactly keen about however it is two bedroom and affordable. No pet fees or anything, and I am sure the place isn’t exactly a palace but I need a place and fast.
I have decided to throw away my beds regardless of where I move to. I have two beds. One is a hand me down from my ex, that is completely shitty. It’s a box spring that’s cut in half and a piss soaked mattress. It doesn’t smell like piss per say, but you can imagine with both Jay and I being major alcoholics when we were dating, how many times we pissed on that thing. Plus I just think it’s bad energy to keep around beds from previous relationships even if you are still friends with the person you parted ways with.
My other bed is my fave. It’s just a futon mattress I sleep on that lies directly on the floor. The reason I am considering throwing it out is because I have had it for YEARS and for the first long while I had it I never put a sheet or anything over it and well that’s kind of gross when you think about it. I do want another futon though I know for sure. I like the whole Japanese esthetic of the bed being on the floor.
Other than that I have this new couch that folds out into a bed so I know at least for awhile If I had to furnish my own place I would have a place to sleep and that’s comforting at least. And if I do in fact move down to the hotel I think Steve might take my couch in and I can probably get him to take in my bed drawers too for awhile, so that’s not much of an issue.
One problem I am having is getting started packing at all. I just feel unmotivated as I really don’t have anyone to help move my shit. I am going to ask Bruce and Kyle to help me if they can this week to move my couch and drawers where ever I am taking them.
Oh and in recent news within the family here, my dog bit the back of my cats neck when she was in heat and case it to scab up and of course I picked it off and now she is displaying a fairly large bald spot on the beck of her head.
Oh well I am about to jump in the shower and get ready for the week from hell, wish me luck.
