As much as I would have liked to have just stayed home and cuddled with Sofie all day, Wednesday, I was back working due to a prior obligation. Sofie headed over to her other grandma’s house. Luckily, it was a short job so I could get back to Sofie without getting too late.
I called my parents that morning to check on how my mom was healing, she was still pretty sore from the accident but doing well. Sofie a bit irritable getting into the car, but otherwise her normal, goofy self. I also got a bunch of calls from the dueling insurance companies regarding the accident (which we’re still dealing with currently).
After I finished my quick music video gig, I headed back to the apartment to pick up a few items. Somehow I got to cleaning… the house (and the building) was really due for some spiffing up. I ended up mopping, vacuuming, and dusting not only the apartment, but the entire building (it is my job as a resident manager after all… no really). Maybe it was something cathartic with the accident happening the day before. Maybe I deal with drama in my life by cleaning? Who knows, but I ended up scrubbing around for about 3 hours. I kind of felt like a freak.
I was also pretty exhausted afterwards, but quite proud of what I had done. The building didn’t look like it had seen a duster in years… vast improvement, I would certainly say…
Anyhoo, I got back to Jason’s mom’s in the early evening. Jason had already went straight over after work. We hung out for a bit then headed back home after dinner; I was wiped! Also, Sofie was not being very cooperative with the photos this time… so this was the best I could get!
Wow, we’ve reached our 200th post and photo! That’s so crazy to think about… we are well over half a year into this project, and it seems like ages ago when I first decided to do it!
But back to reality – I need to catch up on posts, and I’m almost there!
Sofie’s 2nd day at my parents house while Jason and I continued to move our ridiculously large amounts of stuff to our new apartment.
With the end of the month looming, we still had a lot of work to do: painting was one of them.
We started early and spent the day and night painting our apartment back to the stark white we first found it as, we even enlisted the help of Jason’s siblings (a la emergency paint party) so we wouldn’t go completely mad painting all night (though we still nearly did). Thank goodness for the help we got! I really thought I liked painting, but not like that!
Meanwhile Sofie spent another day with her grandparents completely oblivious that her parents were working their butts off cleaning the old apartment that she’ll never see again or probably remember.
Last Tuesday, my mom came by to help a little with moving and also picked up Sofie for the week. Jason had some time off so we decided to take the week to bust out the last leg of our move. Getting the big furniture, selling the things we don’t need, and cleaning and painting our old apartment. With all of that on our plate it was the best option for Sofie to spend a little more time with my parents so we could finally have everything complete!
I was going to really miss her, but I knew that we also had a lot of work left to do!
Took Sofie’s picture before we left to meet my mom at the ferry. I wonder what she was thinking about?
