Moving: Day two of three

Lessons learned:

1) When you file a change of address with the post office, they offer to send you free coupons. Take them! I had to go to Bed, Bath, and Beyond to pick up a couple things, only to find that the coupon they sent me wasn't the usual 20% off any one item, it was 20% off everything!

2) Bed, Bath, and Beyond is darned expensive. I needed a bunch of bath things, so seemed like a place with "bath" in its name was a good choice. At least the 20% off everything made me feel a little better. (Plus, while I usually hate shopping, I actually didn't mind this shop at all.)

I visited the new apartment again today to drop off more stuff I was hand-moving. It didn't seem anywhere near as small as the first time I saw it. (What's up with that, brain?) I said hello to two neighbors, but the conversations were mega-awkward. The man I met seemed angry at me from the moment we spoke, and the woman who lives across from me I just totally failed at conversation with. Talking to people shouldn't be so hard! :/

Continuing the trend of injuring myself when stress levels are high: today I sliced open the tips of my right index and middle fingers. Breaking two toes days before I went on the cruise was worse, but this is no picnic. (Especially since anything and everything I could clean the cuts with was packed. I ended up using napkins and packing tape to make bandaids.)

Movers are coming bright and early tomorrow morning, so all this is almost over. So long as my internet connection works and Ellie New Cat doesn't escape I'm going to call the whole thing a big success. Oh, and the truck not getting in an accident and catching on fire would be nice too, but it's only a 5 minute trip between apartments, so hopefully we'll be safe on that end.
