Moving (again)

Tuesday, April 26, 2011
Soooo, in about 4 weeks I should be in a new apartment. I don't know exactly where or how, but that is the ultimate plan. I am really going to miss the Jefferson Square place, but I have high hopes for my next single abode. I will have to replace a few pieces of furniture that I got rid of to accomodate his stuff but otherwise I've got pretty much everything I need for a cozy, classy one-bedroom apartment.

Since I can't really afford movers this time around, I have thankfully had a few people volunteer to help me move and can most likely borrow a truck from work if need be. It may not go as smoothly as the last go-round but I'm looking at this whole situation as a bit of an adventure and am trying to roll with the punches.

Yeah, sure, it's occasionally really f*cking depressing but mostly I am getting out and about as much as I can to distract myself. This weekend Nat and I helped Cec move into her new place in the fancy-pants part of the Hill and I finally got to meet his kiddo Wyatt - three year olds are immensely entertaining for short periods of time. After a nap I dragged myself over to Dubs to witness the glittery spectacle that is she and her crew getting ready to go out dancing at the gay club - it's pretty amazing the costumes they come up with. I called it an early night but cajoled Cec into a "Welcome to the Neighborhood" drink on Sunday just to get out of the house. At this point, I'll clearly use pretty much any excuse not to be sitting at home by myself...So far, it's pretty much working.

I love Seattle.

Every time I drive through the city I am truly struck by its beauty; on sunny days Seattle just makes you feel good to be alive.

I am going to briefly touch on recent events and then continue this blog in its original vein and speak about the positive things that are upcoming for me.

Ma and I had to say goodbye to our 18 year old cat B.C. on Saturday. His liver was failing and quality of life was decreasing at an increasing pace. He went quietly after lots and lots of petting.

Bear is leaving. Had I been honest with myself, I would have seen this coming long ago and I had at least a few friends who did. I'm okay, but in the next six weeks I have to find a new place to live! Having become quite fond of the Junction, I am willing to give up a few amenities to be able to remain in the area. Once again, I'll be packing every night after work.

My amazing friends have rallied around me and I am looking forward to a bright future, happily on my own again. I've had a lot of new design ideas and having free reign over the space for paint and art and such will be super refreshing. Having more time for girlfriends is also a huge bonus and I have no doubt there will be a lot more social activity for this domestic goddess. The dust should settle in a few weeks and I can get back to my fabulous life as I once knew it!

***I will say that I highly doubt I will be cohabitating with a beau pre-putting-a-ring-on-it ever again and even after that it may be somewhat difficult to convince me.
