Feb. 6: Take clothing donation to Dress for Success (you can donate interview-appropriate clothing and they give it to women who need it. They have locations all over the world).
Feb. 7: Try to get rid of more stuff on Craigslist.
Feb. 8: Really, really try to go to church for once.
Feb. 9-13: Try to contain my excitement about getting the keys to our new apartment that weekend.
Feb. 14: Go to Lupa for Valentine's Day dinner. (Reservations already secured.)
Feb. 15: Get the keys to our new apartment!
Feb. 16-19: Pack. Minimally. The new place is only a block away, so I'm hoping a few trips back and forth will save on the packing effort somewhat.
Feb. 20: Move the big stuff.
Feb. 21: Wake up to my new view of the Empire State Building. Do a load of laundry in my OWN washer and dryer (actually, this may get moved to earlier in the week). Paint and clean old apartment. Close the door and leave for last time.
Feb. 22: Unpack. Take Advil for all the sore muscles I didn't know I had.
Feb. 23-26: Unpack. Do more laundry. Pack again. This time in a suitcase.
Feb. 28: Fly home for a weeklong visit.
