Moving is hard. Mentally.

Moving on Monday. Came down with full blown head cold / sore throat last night. Guess what I'm not doing for the first half of this day. Urg. But okay some downtime is good, right? Tongue

Hang in there, This too like all things will pass. A good hot toddy of honey lemon mint tea with a shot of whisky will help

That's always when I come down with colds. I suppose the stress is lowering my immune system, or something. Take care of yourself.
Gotta love 'em.

The first step of our journey is complete. I've made it to the interim apartment, but there are a few issues. Parent's house isn't complete so they can't move out yet, meaning there's a lot of living beings in this tiny little apartment including my parent's cat who my cat doesn't like. So I only have 1 room and a bathroom blocked off from the rest of the house, and I can only live out of about 3 boxes I came with because of space. It is a little depressing.

And my mother is trying so hard to make it all work, even undid all her own packing in this one room so I could have something of a living space. Which makes this even harder, because I want everyone comfortable and happy, but everyone is having to make sacrifices.

Thank heavens this is only temporary but it is going to be a very, very long month.

And there haven't been any new rental listings in three weeks for this area.

Oh dear, I really can empathise. We have had our 42 year old son living with us for 10 weeks now after a misfortune in circumstances. Funny thing about parents is that they have this innate need to care for and prioritise their children needs even when they are driving us up the wall. I am quite sue your mum will not be feeling as inconvenienced as you think she might be.
Hmm, 3 boxes of stuff, you can do it, it's only 4 weeks. It might make you realise how much stuff you actually really don't need to function well and be happy.
Our son has been away for 10 days now in search of work and I must admit it has been good to not find him asleep on the lounge when I get up each morning at 4am. I thought sending kids to bed after falling asleep on the lounge stopped when they were teenagers, NOPE.
A favourite moto in our house is, "What doesn't kill you makes you stronger".
When he does move out I'll probably be glad to see him go but I will feel very satisfied that I was able to help when needed. I am sure your parents will feel the same.

Erg good perspective thank you! Of course you are right. There are no complaints from them at all. I just try to help out wherever I can to help compensate.

Took ember to their new fenced in yard while we moved a load of their boxes over. After about half an hour of watching us work, I was able to get ember chasing her tennis ball, and she even returned it to me 3 times! Just more confirmation that this girl just really needs her own yard Smile

Happy you made it there safely. It's too bad your parents house isn't ready for them yet. Enjoy the time you have together, it might go by much more quickly than you think.

Glad you got there OK. The next stage will be over before you know it. It sounds like Ember is adjusting well to the chaos.
Gotta love 'em.
