Moving, More Moving, and #AmWatching

One move down, one to go.  Hubby and I got the oldest son moved into his new apartment over the weekend.  It’s a fantastic place in an extremely convenient location – restaurants, grocery store, movie theater (when they open), gym, etc. – all are within two miles.  And more importantly – his cat, Sora, has given her pawprint of approval.  The windows in his old apartment didn’t give her much of a view, and she chewed off part of the blinds to express her disapproval over this gross oversight.  In the new apartment, she has french doors and a big window in his office to keep her happy.  She hasn’t even discovered the one in the bedroom yet.  As you can see from the picture, she’s one happy cat.

Move number two begins on Thursday evening.  The youngest son has to be out of his current apartment by 10 AM Friday.  Between the current tenants in his new apartment and the landlord needing to deep clean after they leave, youngest son and his U-Haul will be parked at our house from Thursday until Sunday, when we have access to the new apartment.  At least we’ll have him home for a few days!

I’m in the middle of The Morning Show on Apple+.  I’m a fan of several actors on this show, but most of the characters  they portray are extremely unlikable.  The show offers a lot of scheming and coverups, but also a look at journalists who are still focused on getting to the truth.  It’s not for everyone (hubby quit watching after the second episode), but I’m interested in seeing where it goes.

Have a safe and healthy week!

  1. Don’t remind me about helping kids move. I told my daughters to separate their pile of stuff into what is going and what is staying and they simply tried to tell me. I’m like “Nooooo, I have to see it to know if we need to rent anything to take it up.” This concept of planning ahead seems to allude them. 🤦🏻‍♀️

    1. Our son said he cleaned out a lot of stuff before the move, but I didn’t really see any evidence. Then agan, he’s a packrat, so it would be hard to see the difference. The other is pretty good about cleaning out as he goes, but he also has more furniture. And I agree – piles are helpful, Tessa!

  2. So cute that Sora is happy. Teri, this made me laugh out loud:
    “The windows in his old apartment didn’t give her much of a view, and she chewed off part of the blinds to express her disapproval over this gross oversight.”

    Cats definitely have a way of making their displeasure known 🙂

    I’m glad your oldest and Sora are settled. Wishing your second son a smooth move!

    1. Thanks, Mae! My son sent me a pic back in the winter showing how Sora had chewed off the blinds to leave a perfectly square area (I swear, it’s like she measured it) where her face fits. No chewing of the blinds in this new apartment.

  3. Thanks for the update. We are involved in the moving situation too. The daughter will be staying with us until her new house is complete. She had to get out of her rental unit, and the house she bought is not complete. It might be as long as a month. Good luck with the one coming up.

    1. We’re getting pretty good at it by now, Joan, lol. I learned how to change out a dryer cord last weekend – just another skill to add to my toolbox! That’s so funny about the blinds. I’ve never had a cat chew through them, but I’m a believer after seeing what Sora did.

  4. Ugh, I’ve moved too many times in my life. I feel your pain. I was debating about giving ‘The Morning Show’ a go, but I might not now. I like my characters to have SOME likability. Why watch otherwise? Give us a report if you keep watching 🙂

    1. We counted, and the older son has moved at least once per year since he left for college – this was the eigth place he’s lived, but it’s all been necessary. I’ve watched nine episodes (maybe one to go?) and what little likability some of them had has all but disappeared. By now, I feel like I need to see this through, lol.

  5. I’m glad the cat is happy with the first move (and your son, too). And I’m glad you get to have your other son home for a few days before he gets into his new apartment.

    I was thinking about watching The Morning Show. I was hoping it was kind of like Newsroom. Now I’m not so sure I want to see it. Sounds almost like a soap opera.

    I’m still sticking with NOS4A2. And I’m still not liking the main character. The pace seems a little faster this season, though, so that’s a plus. And I just binge-watched a few seasons over the last few free days I had. Absentia (Stana Katic) season 3 on Prime. Pretty sure that was the last season. It was worth watching. I Know This Much Is True (Mark Ruffalo) on HBO. That was emotionally draining and really good. And now I’m watching a Perry Mason reboot (Matthew Rhys) on HBO (produced by RDJ and his wife). It’s SO NOT like the Raymond Burr version and has me hooked. There are some books I want to read, but my eyes are so tired at night. Watching is easier right now.

    Good luck on Thursday!

    1. A friend said the same thing about The Morning Show – she’d hoped it would be more like Newsroom, but I think it’s leading more in the soap opera direction now. The first few episodes were intriguing, but now it’s more backstabbing and manipulation.

      I’d watch anything Mark Ruffalo is in, but we don’t have HBO. Guess I’ll wait until it shows up on a streaming service. I’m also a fan of Matthew Rhys (watched him in Brothers and Sisters and The Americans). Didn’t know RDJ was producing, so that makes me even more interested. I’ve seen a lot of ads lately for Absentia and planned to look into it. Thanks, Staci!

  6. Sounds like you are all busy! I remember those days of moving kids. I think they’ll have to rely on friends next time (since their in their mid-thirties now and mom and dad are getting a little creaky). The place sounds great. Take care of your backs!

    1. He’s supposed to have some friends lined up to help on Thursday, and they’re usually pretty reliable. Should make things move quicker. This is the seventh consecutive year we’ve helped at least one of them move, Diana. We’re getting pretty good at it, lol.

    1. Thanks, Tori! Both are loving the new apartment. Sora didn’t even get in her afternoon nap one day last week. The parking lot was being re-paved and she couldn’t tear herself away from the window. Bet you didn’t know how entertaining watching that could be.
