Success! Yay for selling back textbooks! Travis and I received nearly $300 for all of the textbooks we sold back today. That is awesome as it will pay for a few months storage this summer. win. I was very pleased with the "spoils" of our trek. Again, due to my caffeine driven Superwoman mother, we accomplished more today! We went by Goodwill and got rid of a box of stuff that maybe we don't need but someone else might find useful. Was she pleased with our already successful day? Of course not! Duh! More must be done!
Therefore, we journeyed to the U-Haul store where we picked up special packing paper (for artwork) and a... er... quite large artwork box. In fact... this box was so very large that all of the seats in the back of the Audi had to be folded down to fit the box in through the trunk and into the back area of the car. This would have been just dandy... if I were not sitting in the back of the car with my mom and Trav up front. Therefore, the ride home was amusing: I was in the back, lying down on the folded-down chairs (trying not to be seen by a cop- I know... we are so bad) with the cardboard box peeking out by my side. Let me just say... the back of seats in a car... are not comfortable. fail.
We are now back, and once more, more has been accomplished. Travis paid our FINAL month's rent, and I have e-mailed the man who is going to write my letter to NY confirming that I am 100% eligible to be certified in FL. This will complete one more step to the "getting employed in New York" process. Things are progressing beautifully. :) We have even loaded up Travis's car and Mom's car with some things that need to come down to South Florida. With Mom around, no one can be idle. Thank goodness, too. She has been the absolute biggest help we could have. She brings motivation, organization, speed, and "he-womanness" to the process.
Update: My mom and I just finished going by Goodwill AGAIN to drop off more stuff! We also went by to drop off our food that needs refrigeration to the Grays for their consumption, since we won't be here.
Tonight will end nicely because we are going to get some delicious Publix subs, plop down on an air mattress in the living room, and watch movies... er... maybe a movie. We will probably be too pooped to watch more than one. Knowing my reputation with movie-watching, I will be out after the first 15 minutes.
Ugh... still so much to do! I have to renew the title for my car, which I have to renew here because we aren't moving to NY till September. I also have to forward my mail and e-mail. Another task is finishing up this stinkin' apartment. Fortunately, we will be coming back to load everything eventually, so we will deep clean the place then. One thing we DON'T need to do for once...yay!
Well, now that I have poured today's tasks out to you, I will end this post. Hopefully your day is/was less stressful than ours. If not, I pity you and advise you to eat some cake. You deserve it.
