First Few Days (CM)

4. July 2008

2 Comments

So our trip has begun. Well almost. Even though we have left New York, we are sitting in New Jersey getting the RV down to a respectable amount of stuff to travel with. We were in such a rush to finish getting out our apartment that we started throwing stuff in the RV to try [...]

Day 2 – Do Your Clothes Define You? (KJ)

3. July 2008

3 Comments

I once did a little bit of research on a man named Edward Bernays. He is considered the father of modern public relations. While working on an ad campaign for Macy’s he created and popularized the idea that people should use clothing to define themselves. I think this idea is built in [...]

It’s 3 a.m. (KJ)

1. July 2008

2 Comments

CM and I have just finished cleaning out the apartment. We have packed our van to the brim and there is hardly any visible floor space in the RV. So much for downsizing. I mean, we definitely got rid of a lot, but now that all of the stuff we want to [...]

Don’t Sweat The Small Stuff (KJ)

26. June 2008

That’s what they say anyway… Do you ever reach the point in a move when you just start throwing everything in boxes and resolve to sort through it later at your new home? Well, that’s the point we’re at now. The only problem is that our new home/RV has pretty much reached capacity.

My Apologies (KJ)

This blog is getting harder and harder to maintain as the 1st gets closer and closer. We’ve been working pretty steady, but we still have so much crap to get rid of. Not to mention all of the painting we’ve got to do. I will try to post again this evening. [...]

Mission (Not) Accomplished

23. June 2008

Long story short, we failed miserably at meeting our goal! We decided to take the kids to the Murakami exhibit at the Brooklyn Museum of Art. We actually had a great time, but that meant that we didn’t get anything done with the packing the RV. Sunday we put a lot of [...]

Self-Psychoanalysis (KJ)

So I have two sewing machines. (Well actually, one is a sewing machine and the other is a serger.) This summer I was planning on buying a coverstitch machine. There’s only one problem: I rarely sew. In the last year, I’ve probably only sewn 1 thing — a pair of pajama pants for [...]

Weekend Goals (KJ)

CM & I want EVERYTHING out of the house by Sunday. That’s going to give us a week to get all of the walls painted. It’s a tall order, but I think we can do it. I guess it’s mostly me, because CM is constantly reminding me that all of this stuff [...]

2 Halloweens ago, CM & I decided to buy costumes that would last for the ages. So we bought a Ketchup & Mustard Costume set! How awesome is that? Too awesome for words, I know. And now he wants to toss it! What? So the jumbo space bag that [...]

Time For Some Horn-Tootin’ (KJ)

19. June 2008

I am on my way out the door, but I’ve got some good news: I kicked purging-butt yesterday! I got rid of a ton of books and clothes and other crap that I didn’t need. I figured I spent so much time on the days that I can’t bear to get rid of anything, that I [...]
