Oh, you

Thank you for all of the comments on the last post. They actually really helped and made me teary I was so grateful.

Things are going much, much better. Moving day was actually fun and uplifting* - except for one scary-yelly moment when we realized that we had taken a big chunk out of our (lovely, gorgeous) door-jamb because we refused to admit that our boxspring simply wouldn't fit up the 1900-era staircase into our bedroom. Have I mentioned that our new apartment is amazing? And that a boxspring that splits into two parts so as to fit up the stairs is a) totally affordable and b) available from the mattress store that is two blocks form our house? We recovered quickly. Presently, the only concern in our marriage is that D$ has started sleeping with someone from Comcast because he somehow arranged for us to get internet almost two weeks before they said we could have it.

Now that the worst has passed (hopefully) I am tempted to let myself get caught up in the clutter of unpacking and not write about the last month. I am going to try and resist that urge as much as possible, because (as you wise women all said in the comments) writing about it is important and will help me to keep myself honest and to learn about what the eff happened.But - But! This weekend we visit Seattle for a friend's engagement party and Sunday is our anniversary. I am going to let myself enjoy my new space with my sweetie for the next few days, relax on my trip, and then I'll be back to examine the cockles of my poor, twisted, heart.

In other news: I think I am almost done with my wedding graduate post for APW. I figured I should submit it before the one-year anniversary passes by, no?

Take care, y'all,


*I know! This sounds like a total lie because moving is hell. But most of our stuff was still in boxes in storage and my parents were SUPER excited and helpful...and I had stocked the fridge in our new apartment with nice beer and Diet Cherry Coke. We had everything moved in by 1:00 in the afternoon, I kid you not.

  1. I'm jealous. Last time we moved 2 years ago, we also had everything moved in 1pm. But all by our lonesome, and only cause we needed to return the van by midday or pay through our noses to have it for the entire weekend. Since we got married in the intervening period, and seem to have acquired a bunch of *nice* shit, and some actual furniture, I am not looking forward to our upcoming moving day one bit. No sirree.

    I shall take inspiration from your positive experience, though. That, and get packing...

  2. Ooh! Ooh! APW grad. posts always are awesomesauce, especially from girls I "know," which I realize we don't "know" each other, but you "know" what I mean, yeah?

    Anyway, happy anniversary!

  3. Our last move was pretty painless too, but we had some help. I look forward to reading your graduate post.

    Happy anniversary!

  4. Hey, I worked on my wedding graduate post this weekend too. I just can't decide whether to submit it or not. :)

  5. You know, as much as I hate the hard stuff, when we get past it, we feel so, so good. And I'm glad you're happy and moving on with unpacking and still writing. :)
