Forgetting the Little Things

I recently moved into a new apartment a couple of weeks ago.  My lease was up and this new place was considerably bigger than my previous apartment for about the same price.  It’s also closer to where I work so that’s also a good thing.  The move was relatively painless.  I had some buddies help me load all of the heavy furniture and boxes into a truck and that was it.

I usually do a poor job packing.  I usually forget something.  This time, I made sure I didn’t forget anything by doing three sweeps of the old apartment before I left for the last time.  Everything I owned was on the truck when I drove off.  I was feeling extra proud of myself while driving to the new apartment.  That all changed when I opened the back of the truck and found that all the boxes were toppled over because I forgot to use the safety straps to keep everything in place.  A few items were broken like my Tiffany desk lamp and my convection oven.  I wondered to myself if I was better off forgetting them back in the old apartment.
