Moving Countdown: T Minus just a handful of days

We've handed over money (security deposit plus first month's rent plus a half month's rent so the lease will start from today) and are simply waiting to hear when we can go sign all the final paperwork and pick up keys. And once we do that, we can arrange with the super when we can reserve the elevator so we can schedule movers. Eeek!

Peanut and I packed up most of his stuff yesterday. It really didn't take long at all, and left me cranky about all the useless stuff that I own. I always feel so tied down by junk, but somehow I seem to keep accumulating it. I don't know what to do about that.

My current landlord found someone who wants my current apartment, which makes me a little sad. This is the first time I've ever lived alone, and who knows--it might also be the last. That little apartment gave me a lot of confidence and peace of mind, and it will be hard to leave that behind, even to move in with Peanut.

I haven't really touched on all the chaos at work--my boss will be leaving for a new job at the end of this week, and they also promoted the only other person in my department right out of it--so as of right now, it's just me and a new (unknown) new boss. I haven't heard one word of title promotion or raise despite all the new work that's about to come my way, and I think I might need to speak up to get it. Or should I wait and speak up when there's a boss in place who has the power to grant that, and I've been doing a good job for a few months?
