This morning I woke up at the beautiful Renaissance. I had a wonderful night of sleep. My husband surprised me last night-I thought we were staying at the Marriott, he had the brought me to the Renaissance. It was so relaxing to be in a room that didn’t have boxes and had cable tv!
After coffee, my husband headed to work and I headed back to the apartment. It is crazy how emotionally unattached I become to our home once the packers have our life in boxes. The actual apartment becomes cold and bare. Already my focus is on our new house and decorating it to make it a warm, cozy home.
When I got in, I set up a station for the movers with water, cups, tissues, paper towels, and soap. And I packed up our dry shower in this apartment, I have already washed my fabric shower curtain and just left the plastic shower curtain hanging. I have used Lysol wipes and paper towels to wipe them down this morning so they will be packed without getting smelly. I also made sure to cover my brooms with a garbage bag. In our move to this place, the movers literally dragged the broom through our carpeting and left a nice trail of dirt for me to vacuum later-I learned from that! The movers are going to load the trucks up with all of the boxes today and the next time we see the boxes will be at our new place-how exciting!
In the meantime, I will be making sure that all the boxes get onto the truck ok and also cleaning up after the movers leave. I will be wiping everything down before we return our keys and say our final goodbyes to this chapter of our life.
