I just spent some time getting quotes for one of those portable moving cubes. Bad news, folks. (At this point, did anyone really expect anything else?) The quotes ranged from $1,700 to over $2,000 to move from Houston to Indiana plus one month storage. I'm pretty sure I could replace anything I really want to bring with me for less than that. Sigh. It's particularly irritating since I just bought myself a new couch in March. This thing is beautiful. It's comfy and reclining, and after delivery I spent about $650 on it. I could have sat on the old, non-reclining couch for another 4 1/2 months and saved myself a lot of money. So frustrating.
In other fantastic news, I was working on the closet this afternoon and discovered a lovely, hairy patch of mold where I had my first outcropping last winter. That might explain the itchy eyes and nose and scratchy throat I've been dealing with lately.
On the positive side, there are now 6 bags of trash and a handful of beat up boxes sitting at the front door, waiting to be hauled to the dumpster.
