Balancing Act: Crafting and Moving

Wow..... I am likely moving cities a month or so from now.  That is the scary part.  I know what city.  I know my fiancee will have a job.  I don't know if I will have one.  We don't have a place yet.  And we don't know exactly when we are going.

And then there is the not so fun part....  Packing!  Ugh!  Its even less fun when you don't know exactly when you are moving.   What do I pack first?  How am I going to deal with the pets?!  I have to have everything out of the house for the inspection of the apartment, but if its hot they can't exactly hang out in the car...  I have things like candles that don't appreciate getting hot either.  Uhaul trucks aren't air conditioned....  Will they melt?  I'm hoping it is going to cool off enough before we go that I don't have to worry about that too much...

Oh my gosh.... There is so much to do....  I am giving stuff away, throwing stuff away, donating stuff, all to have to pack less.  Am I going to regret getting rid of some of this stuff?  Where do I donate my Hot Topic coats?  Not very many people are into trench coats and leather....

And then there is my knitting.  How long can I put off packing it?  Should I get rid of some of my stash?  How do I take the time to work on projects when I should be packing?  I have a new scarf pattern in progress to put up on Ravelry.  I am in a hurry to get lots of decent patterns up for sale so that I can supplement my income.  Especially since I will possibly have a loss of income....  I know I'm probably not doing any more weaving until I move...  How do people do this?!

So... the thing I'm most excited about?!  There is a Stitch N' Bitch group where I'm moving.  There isn't one here!  And there are tons more yarn shops there!  I'm sad to go because I have friends and family here and no one I know there, but its an adventure!
