moving still sucks. unfortunately there have been no major technological breakthroughs in moving over the past ~2 years and you still just have to muscle through it.
we are leaving DC, which is incredibly sad and surreal to me. it didn't hit me until last weekend as i started packing some things up that we were actually leaving and i felt helpless and despaired for a moment (or five). Pity, party of 1.
we are moving into my work apartment in richmond, VA. though it will only be my work apartment for another month as i have accepted a new contract down in SFL to start at the end of june. nothing like piling change on top of change, right? my cup runneth over. i have a lease at the apartment until november though, and who knows where we will need to live by then? so we shall put a bunch of stuff in storage and move there for now.
DC is an incredibly awesome and expensive place to live. jesse has graduated from georgetown law (cum laude!!!) and will be looking for a job and studying for the Bar over the next couple of months . . so it makes sense to do all this in a much less expensive (and much less awesome, HAHAHAHAHA. oh.) place.
the one good thing i can come up with about leaving DC is that i won't have to play tour guide and visit museums and monuments that i've been to a zillion times now with each new guest who comes a-calling. oh, and not being subject to photo speeding tickets and parking tickets all the time and constantly worrying if i've parked in an ok spot. oh, and not feeling the hostility oozing out of the pores of the crazy racist african american extremist groups that yell all manner of TERRIBLE things about white people at the gallery place/chinatown metro stop. oh, and driving . . anywhere. but otherwise, you know, complete devastation.
and just a little tribute . . in and around the city. sighs around.
