“Hey, let’s save a few bucks, let’s have a bit more money to put in as equity on the new place! Let’s … MOVE OURSELVES! We can just rent a truck, pack everything in it, it’ll be no big deal.”
If you’re ever thinking about doing this, and you own a reasonably large amount of stuff, for-fucking-get about it.
Anyway, it’s all done now, we’re installed in the (temporary) shelter of Annette’s parents place (Kick ass! If only they had a _basement_ we could live in, just to complete the loser no-hoper cliche!) until the new apartment is built. We’re in, my computer works, and we’ve had DSL installed.
Shifting into the apartment in a couple of months.
This time, I’ll happily pay for movers.
