Sense. It makes none.
Regardless, we're going to spend the weekend killing ourselves getting the big stuff moved over and then start migrating over smaller items (we've got our old apartment through the 14th of February). I have a couple shelves of books that have been designated "Kurt's to pack" that I'll be working on this evening between loads of laundry and ferrying odds and ends to the new place--musical instruments, boxes of books, etc--and packing up dishes.
And supposedly we've got some help coming out this weekend to get the big stuff: bed bookshelves, drafting table, and the stuff we've purchased off Craigslist, which may or may not include a washer/dryer and couch (in addition to the entertainment center we've already paid for).
And we need to get extra keys made (there are two keys to the place, and right now Abby and I have one of each between us).
