Not my couch!!

My dad is here right now, at my apartment. He got in last night, which was a bit of a surprise from his expected arrival date of Tuesday. He brought my brother with him to pick up the first load of my things. I have boxes packed and certain furniture “tagged”. Take this, and this, this if you can fit it, not this or this though. That sort of thing.

All day long, I have been wondering how it is going, how much will fit, if we are going to be able to get this in two trips, and anything else that can raise my anxiety level. Finally, moments ago, I got a call from my brother.

“How did you get the couch IN to your apartment? We can’t get it out.”

Ohhh noooo… not my couch! That wasn’t on the approved list. What will I sit on till I go? What will I make out on? What will I lay on while watching movies??? I LOVE my couch. I’m attached to it. It’s pretty new still, and the idea of it being stuck in the doorway, pushed and shoved, honestly freaks me out. I’m horrified that they will tear the beautiful blue suede. To be fair, they are very careful and I doubt that would happen. (I hope.) But I wasn’t prepared to lose my couch. I wasn’t prepared to be separated from it for a month. I have separation anxiety.

Okay, so that’s a bit dramatic. Maybe it’s separation anxiety in general. I’m to the point where the move is inevitable. It is happening, and like a rock rolling down hill, it is coming faster and faster. While I knew it was real, I don’t think I am prepared to go home to a half empty apartment. To leave the boss that I totally adore. My co-workers who are good friends. My friends who are like mashed potatoes, warm and comforting. (work with me here) To leave this place that I have come to love, the water, the sun, the palm trees, the pool, the beaches, the sushi.

The therapist in me (there’s those voices in my head) tells me to focus not on what I am leaving, but on where I am going. Yeah, whatever. All I know is this, where I am is not where my couch is going to be. At least not for the next month. Hey guys, could you please not take my bed?

Natchural - You didn't miss it; I didn't say. I haven't decided if I'm going to or not yet.

MyReal - Awww, thank you. I needed that.

Surely you can find time to enjoy UFC on Saturday. Yes?

Let me drive. I like the view

UFC on Saturday is a definite occurrence. I had planned on having a lil soiree at mi casa, perhaps. However, at this point, I'd have to ask everyone to bring camp chairs. Ha.

Luvs - Ugh, it's a nightmare. I like my place "just so" with all my little candles and glass and stuff. To not have anything but a bed and a chair now makes me feel like I should have a college party.

Sharks - Hell yes I do!

mind if I borrow that sentiment, about the shrink in your head I mean. I like that, its not about what your leaving it's about where your going. Maybe very useful in the next few months to come.

Cowboy - Yeah, I'm relegated to one chair. Nothing to even put my feet on. It's hell.

Hey Sunney;

Not much, possibly moving to Cali after this contract is up, won't be for long with any luck, 3 months maybe, too early to tell just yet. Wishing you all the luck in the world girl, sincerely.
