Moving out of my apartment sucks. I’d rather be writing about food.


June 24, 2011 by Ashlee Clark Thompson

I’m going to scream if I have to look at one more cardboard box.

For the past week, I have been packing in preparation for my move out of Old Louisville and to the Wyandotte area. I hate moving. I really do. I hate packing and the subsequent cleaning that results when you go through piles of your own junk. I hate carrying a shoe rack and hampers and oscillating fans and all those other things with awkward shapes down to my Corolla from a second floor apartment. I hate having to redo the whole process in reverse when I arrive at my new location. And I especially hate that I haven’t had time to blog about food and whatnot. HATE HATE HATE.

So the $10 Challenge will return Monday, as will more regular blogging, after I’ve (hopefully) escaped my own personal hell of relocating. In the meantime, here are some things that have been on my mind:


  • I’m pouring out a little bourbon for my friends and good writers who were laid off from the Courier-Journal this week.

  2. My husband and I are going to be moving next month so I feel you, not looking forward to that part at all!

  3. […] Moving out of my apartment brought me face-to-face with a handful of kitchen gadgets that had rested in the bottom of cabinets and the backs of drawers for a year. […]
