Goodbye, Things! See You in Washington!!!
This morning the moving company came to take all of my things (belongings, stuff, junk, material burdens, accumulations) awaaaaay to faraway Washington to store while I await the Canadian immigration process!!!! Goodbye, things!!!!!
But the momentum has beeeeeen gooooooing a loooooot sloooooower than I would have liked. Do you wannaknowwhyyyyy?????
At first, it was gung ho, onward valiant soldier, hey ho let’s go when I first arrived to Los Angeles. Unfortunately, a couple of days after I arrived I became afflicted with a head cold which put me out for a couple of days. Lifting + loading wasn’t in my schedule!!!!
Nothing too crazy, just a foggy-headed-stumbling-around type of cold. Still, not very conducive when it comes to making decisions about whether or not to keep that 1960s era Spanish to English flash card set.
As I was recovering from my head cold, I ingeniously decided to walk most unceremoniously down our stairwell carrying items in each hand. Woe is the bearer of ill decisions!!!!!!
BOOM!!! Oh folly!!!!! Cruel fate!!!!!
Since then I’ve had a dull headache for most of the day. Jeff thinks I’ve lost some of my memory. I have difficulty forming thoughts + definitely can’t express them without having to stumble over my words. I avoid bright lights like Dracula. When I overexert myself, afterwards I sit around + space out – like Forrest Gump.
I went to the doctor, + she just told me to chill out + take it easy because I’ll be “dingy” all week. NOT POSSIBLE, DOC!!! But I admire your moxie!!!
I used FlatRate Moving + I recommend them to EVERYONE!!!!! They charge by the item – not by weight! VERY affordable! Anytime I had to deal with a representative on the phone, they were extremely professional + answered questions promptly. AND they are the official movers for the LA Kings + the Clippers!!! Heyoooo!!!! The guys that came to pack were quick, efficient + super nice! One of the guys was entertaining my mom + showed her PSY’s “Gangam Style” video.
Yo, my stuff went into an 85 foot truck! My driver, Mike is from Guam + he is HIIIIILARIOUS + CRAZY!!! We discussed the fine culinary merits of Spam together. I now feel comforted that my things will travel to Washington safely, because Mike already felt like family.
SHAKA!!!!!! Dad put on the cowboy hat in homage to Jeff! Well, it’s been a long road! I’m so grateful to have had my family along for the ride with all their immense patience, help, support + understanding they’ve given me throughout all of my wacky endeavors!!! I love you guys!!!!!!
