I Need a Nap and a Personal AssistantThursday, June 14, 2012
I meant to post sooner, but I've been distracted by my photo shoot for Brooklyn Thread, editing photos of our trip to Boston for The Everygirl (did you see our first travel feature??), priming my current entry, graphic design projects, packing, taking things to the new place with Kat and Melissa (thanks, girls!), an attempt to get a new ID (that sucked), and more packing. I also re-photographed my current apartment before tearing it apart and added the photos to my website. I have worked/packed until 3:00 am every night this week and came pretty close to a nervous breakdown a couple of times. I am so ready for this move to be over.
On a positive note, my apartment has been transformed by a few coats of paint and I have slowly fallen for my new little home. I also met my neighbor (we share a deck) and she a. is very sweet and b. loves dogs. c. she's a nurse. So if I choke on something or injure myself cooking, she can save my life. Good to know.
My mom arrives tonight! I haven't seen her since early December. Looking forward to having her in Chicago for a few days and I am really looking forward to having her take over the move. Gina is going to let Buddy hang with his new best pal/girlfriend Minnie while the movers load the truck. And I'm not sure what I'd do without Mary, Caitlin, Chloe, and of course, Alaina. The Everygirl team has been so supportive as I've lost my mind / prepared for this move.
Back to work + packing + photo editing. Remind me to never move again. Ever.
