on the move again

My lease runs out in January (or so) and we’re looking for a new place to move. The only thing we’re not budging on? Must be in Minneapolis and must have two bedrooms. We found one we are so in love with – it’s 1.2 miles from my work, it has gigantic windows and 9 foot ceilings, and the kicker? An onsite dog park. We drove by it last night after the aforementioned musical and we were pretty much in love the whole time. The plan is to put out a few phone calls (we’ve already emailed) to get some more information and see if we’ll fit into their guidelines. We’re keeping our fingers crossed.

Another option we have is moving within the same building we’re at now. They’re one two bedroom apartment in the bottom floor. In passing, we’ve noticed that there are no less than six people living in this apartment. I’m not sure when their lease is up, but if there’s any way it would coincide with when mine is up, I’d be one happy camper. And it’d make a whole heck of a lot easier.

Their estimates are kind of mind blowing – they estimate a 1 bedroom apartment would have approximately 4000 pounds worth of furniture. That’s two tons. And that means that’s how much my friends moved for me back in February/March of this year. I’m really truly considering professional movers this time. I’m okay with packing everything up, but the idea of someone else loading it into a truck for me (and more importantly unloading it) fills my heart with glee. We’ll have to look into interstate moving companies… well, I guess more along the lines of intrastate ones, but at least it’s good to know there are so many out there for all kinds of different rates!

    You should check with your local U-Haul as well. Thye usually have names and numbers of people you can call to help you load and unload your truck. Totally worth it.

What's up?
