I have a plan, and I’ve been over it backwards and forwards dozens of times and yet I still feel like I have no idea what I’m doing. I’ve moved before. I’ve moved with less certainty about the plan. I just found out today what car I’ll be driving to LA, got a chance to check it out, and it seems like it’ll be ok. No idea if the person who is supposed to help me get a moving truck was successful or not. The company internet went down around lunch time and didn’t come back. No way to check or send email to coworkers.
Drive down and hope the best? That’s crazy!! I reserved a truck through u-haul on Monday as a back up plan. I’m not approved for re-reimbursement at that cost level, but I can’t bear the thought of getting down there and then not having a truck to pack. Especially since I’m out of options. I have to be out by 6/1.
Really I think the thing I’m most worried about is packing the truck. That’s not something I have a lot of experience with. Usually I move a short distance and make many trips. Ideally I could pack in a way so that everything I’m putting in storage is grouped together, and everything I’m bringing to work is together, and all the apt. stuff is together.. but since everything is weird shapes, boxes, furniture, exercise equipment, tools, etc. I fear everything is going to be mixed. I fear unpacking is going to be more difficult than packing. I might have to park the rental truck at work and make trips with my truck to storage (about a mile away, I figured it made more sense to get storage close to work rather than the apt since I hope to move ((EEK!!)) but not change jobs in the future) since storage can’t accommodate a truck longer than 20′.
