Yesterday I spent the evening sorting, filtering and discarding. Nothing was moved but I felt much better about things once I finished clearing out all the little piles of stuff around the apartment.
My goal for tonight was to get everything but my two remaining pieces of furniture out of my old apartment. I didn't quite make it but I'm getting really close.
Tonight I dropped off some stuff at Goodwill, took two loads of stuff over to storage and one very full car load over to the new apartment. I should be able to finish moving stuff tomorrow night, then I'll just need to figure out what to do with my old desk and entertainment center.
It appears there was some sort of idiot convention at the fairgrounds tonight. While driving past the fairgrounds on the way to storage I had a guy in front of me make a left turn from the right lane, directly in front of me. I managed to avoid slamming into the driver's side of his car although I'm not sure he deserved the courtesy. When I was passing the fairgrounds again on the way back there was a steady stream of cars leaving the parking lot without paying much attention to the cars that were already on the road. I had to stop somewhat quickly to avoid ramming an SUV that darted onto the road without bothering to look either way. The next time I drove by the fairgrounds I wasn't too surprised to see a couple banged up cars in that area.
Later this week- exciting tales of cleaning and scrubbing!
