So... moving 'cross country. I'm feeling a little (actually, more than a little) overwhelmed right now. There's so much to think about.
1. Freight shipping: pay to have all of my belongings shipped ahead of me and only have my car to drive over
2. Self-shipping: rent a "u-haul" w/ a trailer for my car and tow it behind? That's a 3 day trip and I CANNOT back a trailer up!
3. No Shipping: get rid of anything and everything other than my clothes and a few precious possessions and just GO! (I will be checking on the possibility of my car pulling a small trailer.)
Now, on the surface, choice #3 seems to be a no brainer, best pick. My sister-in-law, Tiffany, assured me they have 2, if not 3, of everything I could possibly need. Enough that I can have/use any and all of it for my own when I find my own place and move in. NO BRAINER!
But then, there's the security of your own belongings, your own bed (which I love... it's so comfy!), a piece of furniture that you have a certain attachment to. Do I really want to COMPLETELY start over? I know I am, in a sense, because I'm moving so far away and EVERYTHING will be different. But, I like that lamp and lampshade that I bought a few months ago. That little side table and vintage coffee table that I bought. These things give me pause and I just don't know!!
Anyway, I need to figure it out quick. Time's a-wastin' and I've got a lot of livin' to do!
