Moving Stress

I’m sorry that I’ve been so quiet since my big move announcement. I’ve been dying to tell you about my road trip to Portland and back, as well as all my tips for how to move cross country on a budget. Unfortunately, this move is taking up 100% of my time. Between waiting for craigslist people to show up (hint: they only actually come 5% of the time) and getting everything ready for a massive Salvation Army truckload donation, I’m out of time completely. With what little time is leftover in the day, I’ve had to spend it packing boxes and getting the car ready for the big cross-country drive. I’m exhausted just thinking about it. And of course the most important thing I’ve been trying to do is spend as much time with friends as possible. Thankfully I got to see my favorite LA comedy show, Hot Tub, at the Virgil last night. I’m supposed to hit the road in 5 days and I’m currently surrounded by belongings. STRESS!

Okay and whiningggg, done. I just wanted you to know you haven’t been forgotten about and when I’m writing to you from back east in early December, I promise the following posts:

– Road trip LA to Portland and back to LA (up the coast, down through the state parks)
– What’s the cheapest way to move from coast to coast? I know the answer!
– Road trip from LA to Connecticut. Follow the journey!
– Renovating Meyer Wire: The Before

It’s Monday so it’s Hot Tub day! Originally it was going to be an album recording show, but over the weekend Kristen had a bike accident. She’s okay and the show will go on, but she will have to skip this week and next weeks shows. So in the not too distant future, a recording will happen. But you should still check it out tonight with Nate Bargatze, Emily Heller, Andres du Bouchet, Beth Sterling and Karen Kilgariff.
