Thumbs down Moving = Poop.

So, I'm in the middle of moving.. Before moving into my apartment I painted it LIME green with HOT pink trim. My kitchen, is orange.

I have to repaint everything. My mom drove all the way from Ohio to help with the task and to help me move all of my boxes from my place to my new place.. I've been living there since June (it's actually boyfriend's place) but all of my furniture and the majority of my posessions were still at my old place.

I am EXHAUSTED. All you people who do all this moving.. I do not know how you do it!

And, come June I'm gonna have to do this all over again when me and the be oh oh get a new place.. That isn't 400 sq. feet!

In anycase, I owe PMs to quite a few of you. I owe e-mails to even more of you. And, I haven't been on any messengers in at leasssst a week. MySpace too.

I'll get back to everyone... eventually.

Painting is fun! Time-consuming, no doubt. The moving aspect aint a breeze.

Been there ..done that many times ...

I hope that take it easy ... be safe ... get people to help you out with the heavy stuff .... I helped move an enormous sectional couch which I thought weighed a ton ...when I had previously moved to Arkansas.

... I was pretty sore the next day .....

My wife and I, both still have stuff boxed up and wrapped up in bubble wrap. We will be moving out in June 2007. (nearly 9 months away)

Right now, we have an apartment of our own ...just not everything is moved in yet ..since we have both have to stay in this house and look after the boys.

I wish you luck Ivy.

God, you're freaking me out.

When I moved in here over a year ago, I spent about 2 weeks painting the entire place. Kitchen is two shades of aqua, living room is bright orange, bedroom is NesQuik brown, and bathroom is orange and yellow.

Yeah, it's a color factory in here, and there was no discussion about me having to repaint if I move out, but I do sort of suspect that it's expected since I threw all these crazy colors up! lol

I guess painting white/white wouldn't be nearly as bad though... don't have to be so careful with the trim.

Best of luck on the move, and I'm sorry you're going to do it again so soon.. but hopefully it will be a more permanent one next time.

I understand. I'm moving this weekend. And while there won't be painting involved, the level of cleaning I need to embark on is monumental.

I can't wait to be re-settled, this is making me INSANE.

Default The Painting Hasn't Happened Yet....

.....but the unpacking has, and it's a slog getting it all sorted.

Ever tried to maintain throughways for a supersize woman in a 575sf home? Takes some strategizing.

Good luck with the move. Been there, done it. No fun. Like the title description of move = poop. Made me laugh. (Good you still have your soh!!)

There's nothing quite like the satisfaction of making your own stamp on a place & turning it into a home tho. Enjoy & hope you feel settled before long.

I haaaate repainting stuff. Your color scheme sounds soooo good. PIX PLZ.

So, tonight my boyfriend is on craigslist after spending the ENTIRE day helping up repaint and move and he has decided he wants to move. Like, in the next 2 weeks.

I get to do ALL of this again. AWESOME!!

at least we're going to have an actual apartment.. with multiple rooms and stuff. haha
