Blog Tour Day 12 + Moving Stress

November 13, 2010

I talk with Michele ‘n’ Jeff Reviews about the foundation of Storm Moon Press and its planned expansion. We’re excited about all the changes we have planned in the next year or two. 🙂

OMG, moving is one of the most stressful things I’ve ever done, and no matter how often you move, it doesn’t get any less stressful. I would say it’s the packing that gets me, but it’s not. It’s the financial drain. Shutting off all services means paying in full whatever balances are left. Starting services means deposits. Leaving an apartment means carpets must be cleaned (which is an expense I really don’t like) and a prorate must be paid. Moving into an apartment means a prorate must be paid (though, in this case, we’re moving in on the 30th and must pay for all of December immediately) plus deposits and pet fees.

All it has to be paid up front. All of it has to come out of just two paychecks.

And that’s in addition to all the regular bills that must be paid. It’s an insane drain on the finances.

Luckily, I do have parents who are willing to help out. 🙂 It’s just that they want to help out, not pay for everything. Still, it just hurts to see payday reduces to mere cents due to the move. Oi. At least, once we move, it’ll be easier and the money will stack back up.
