“Mini” Move

Our place is sparkling thanks to my parents!!!

What a week!  Packing, packing, cleaning, cleaning, errands, errands, errands, friends in car accidents, losing subletters, Cedro’s baptism, finding subletters…

Couldn’t have survived without my parents and my sister and brother-in-law. Ging delivered meals to us all last week while Danny babysat for us on top of them hosting my aunt, my cousin, 2 nieces, my parents and Cedro this past weekend while B and I got our apartment in order and packed.  We didn’t have to worry about anything else all weekend.  Mom brought all the treats for the baptism favors and managed the goodie bag assembly line while Tita Nitz cooked up a storm while Papa did household repairs and spent hours on his hands and knees scrubbing out the black spots in our white carpet.  Oh, and let’s not forget that my parents were also on Cedro Duty at the same time and that my dad drove most of the way from LA!

We’re so lucky to have our family’s help and support.  It was certainly déjà vu.  A little over a year ago we were in the same boat trying to move out of NYC!  And that move took a surprise visit from B’s dad from Tokyo and the help of his sister and brother-in-law to help us get out the door!  And of course, poor Danny was there again to save our butts to help drive our stuff out from Ithaca to LA!  Thank God we didn’t have to move EVERYTHING!

We found someone at the last minute (thanks to our dear friend, Autumn) to stay at our place for the whole time that we’re gone!  YAY!  She’s Holly White from Ireland and she seems really sweet and responsible.  We feel confident that she’ll take good care of our place.  (And if not, you all have her website and can help us track her down! Ha!)

B arrived in Chicago on Monday and showed us our new apartment via video chat!  Lookin’ good!  As for us, Cedro and my parents and I arrived in Sacramento late last night after a long drive from Los Angeles.  It’ll be nice to catch up on sleep between now and when C and I fly out to Chicago on Monday!

Thank you again, Mom, Papa, Ging, Danny and Tita Nitz!!!
