moving this weekend...

... and my nerves are lying blank...
I have been renovating like mad, together with Gabe, and one day with 7 fantastic helpers (family and friends) for the last three weeks or so-
Well, it seems like months to me ;)
But it is looking soooo great, I cannot wait to be moved in and settled and all.

Everything is as good as packed... here in Amsterdam.
The (stressy) thing is we need to travel to Germany Friday night,
pack some of my stuff there (furniture etc. dumped at my
parents place/the cellar when moved together with Gabe onto 40m2
about a year and a half ago) on Saturday,
get some good sleep after Dad's Birthday Dinner that evening,
try to get up reeeeeaaally early on Sunday (we are talking
4-5 a.m. here, and I am anything but a morning person)
to head back to Amsterdam where (hopefully) again we will have
helping hands (family and friends- what would you do without them)
to unpack all that stuff -
go over to our old place here in the city (East)
pack more stuff into the truck,
and bring it all to our new location (city, 'old West').

Now- this is a pretty big operation as it is...
but now imagine it with THIS type of weather:

Total nightmare!!! Why is it snowing again all of a sudden? ARGH!!!
Even if it tries to look all nice today, it's still slippery, wet and messy!

I keep my fingers crossed that we have a pretty smooth drive to and from germany, otherwise we'll be stuck in hell...

I just want to say:
WE WILL GET IT DONE! No matter what the weather's like. I'd actually prefer it to be rather cold in Amsterdam so we don't sweat as much walking up and down the stairs... ;)
(of course not on your way back from Germany)

You just project yourself relaxing in your perfectly located, amazingly beautiful, huge, renovated cool and warm(central heating!) new apartment (with bathtub...!)next week.

Big hug!
