To move or not to move....

Hmm... I looked into how much it would cost to get a U-Haul from here to Oregon and it ended up being around $1,700. Factoring gas into that and it would probably be around $2,500 - $3,000. *sigh* We'd probably be better off buying a newer car and getting a mini trailer to hook up onto the back of the car instead. Same amount of money, but at least we'd have a newer car. Lulz.

I'm getting more and more signs that moving to Oregon is the right thing to do, but I'm waiting on the "when". I can't expect everything to be perfect, but neither one of us feel at peace right now. So until then, we wait.

Hey, leave me a comment on this entry and I'll:

a) Tell you why I friended you.

b) Associate you with something -- a fandom, song, color, photo, etc.

c) Tell you something I like about you.

d) Tell you a memory I have of you.

e) Ask you something I've wanted to know about you.

f) Tell you my favorite userpic from your list.

Current Mood: okay okay

I think I met you on the VAA or through Prissi.

For some reason you remind me of Tohru from Fruits Basket. :D

Your faith and dedication to being the best person you can be.

d) Tell you a memory I have of you.

The time you posted an official announcement of your relationship with Marc (and most of us saw it coming :P)

What's your favorite song?

a) Tell you why I friended you.

We met on iparty and I thought you were really nice, plus at the time we lived close to each other. :D

b) Associate you with something -- a fandom, song, color, photo, etc.

The first things that come to mind are pugs (for obvious reasons XD) and Portland.

c) Tell you something I like about you.

I love how sweet and ambitious you are. ♥

d) Tell you a memory I have of you.

The time I was losing Yuna and you sent some money my way to help with the bill... I'll never forget that and will always appreciate the kindness and support you showed me. :)

e) Ask you something I've wanted to know about you.

How did you get into film making?

f) Tell you my favorite userpic from your list.

$1700 for a U-Haul? That doesn't sound right. Are you guys getting, like, the biggest size? Maybe go with a smaller one and take this time to shed some un-needed junk.

Actually, it was around $1,750 for the smallest U-Haul truck with a hitch on the back to haul Jerry's car. Of course, it's a 2000 mile drive, so I'm sure that has something to do with the cost. D:

a) Tell you why I friended you.

I friended you because I thought you were greatly amusing and I enjoyed interacting with you on FLAVA, so I figured why not?

b) Associate you with something -- a fandom, song, color, photo, etc.

Spiderman.

c) Tell you something I like about you.

Your ability to turn even bad days into humorous memories. I'm sure they are still pretty bad for you, but you have a talent of laughing them off anyway. :)

d) Tell you a memory I have of you.

LOL. So many... west nile virus, Jock Itch, your rendition of 1000 words, all those nights on iparty...

e) Ask you something I've wanted to know about you.

What are you afraid of?

f) Tell you my favorite userpic from your list.

I never noticed they were all the same! :O This one is my favorite: http://p-userpic.livejournal.com/22816117/466145

I have to agree with Matt. The smaller u-hauls are a lot cheaper. You could also check into like...moving companies or something else and if all else fails, there's always the mail or DHL :D

As for the "when" you'll get the sign soon enough. Take deep breaths, the time will come :) <3

Yeah, the smallest truck is $1,400 but it comes to just under $1,750 with the hitch we need to haul Jerry's car. Moving companies and even PODS are more expensive, sadly. Still, we'll figure something out. I think getting a newer car and just getting one of those small trailers to hitch on the back would probably cost about the same, but at least we'd have something to show for it after the move. :P

Thanks for the encouragement!

a) Tell you why I friended you.

Because you shut down your other journal and I still love me some Kimmeh!

b) Associate you with something -- a fandom, song, color, photo, etc.

Avatar and fairies. I used to associate you with something else, but I don't remember anymore. >_>

c) Tell you something I like about you.

Your raw honesty with yourself.

d) Tell you a memory I have of you.

Days on flava and iparty and chats. :D

e) Ask you something I've wanted to know about you.

What's your favorite movie?

f) Tell you my favorite userpic from your list.

That sucks that the small ones are that expensive o.<;;; Damn. I don't know if they have it out where you are, but over here there's these things called SAMs (store and move i think). Maybe check into those? I hope it all goes well for you honey <33

And my favorite movie is Beauty and the Beast (Disney version) :D Although it's almost closely tied by Lilo and Stitch and Enchanted :B

DO ME DO ME!

And I completely understand, honey. I'm torn between Minnesota and Ohio... though I keep getting signs about staying in Ohio. Things suck right now, but they'll be better!

I think I met you through Nikki? If not, it was probably on iparty or a chat or something. We seemed to have a lot in common, so I thought it would be cool to read your journal too. :)

Wicked.

You are straight forward and no-nonsense and totally brilliant and I think those are respectable qualities.

Various chats years back about nothing in particular.

Why you so cute? :O
