moving on up

Don’t expect to see too many posts in the next couple of weeks. I am currently in the process of getting ready to move. That’s right, after 27 years of living in the same house (with the exception of my 4 years at school), I’m finally moving out on my own. Yes, I realize that it is long overdue, but I get along well with my parents and have managed to build up a very nice nest egg. So I have no regrets for waiting this long. As far as the house vs. apartment argument, I opted for an apartment at this time. Moving out is a big enough change for me that I think having all the additional worries of a house would be too overwhelming at this time. After a year out on my own, I’ll reevaluate my situation.
So I’ve spent much of this week gathering my things around the house and going furniture shopping for the first time. I think shopping for furniture is one of the worst things a person has to go through. I’ve sat on hundreds of couches this week and they all seem to blend together. I find one I like and then have to think “now is it better than that one I liked 20 minutes ago and the one I saw the other day at the other place?”. And most of those furniture salesmen are like hawks that pounce on you within moments of setting foot in the store and trail you around like a lost puppy. I’ll be glad when all of this is over. So wish my luck and hopefully I’ll be seeing all of you soon.
