I'm very tired. Physically, emotionally. But on the positive side, and I will try and keep it on the positive side, I am no longer a nomad, and my cat now lives with me and has already adjusted.
The wonderful woman at Ryder truck semi-convinced me to take a 24 foot truck (or whatever a big truck is). I have a lot of shit. It all fit in the truck without having to squeeze things in. I had many helpers, and thankfully one was my door guy friend who used to drive a tractor trailer, since my street is one way with cars on either side and narrow.
Only one casualty - a 3 inch scratch on the new floors. Which look AMAZING by the way. Lots of character and well done. Trouble is they are spewing off fumes which I hope go away soon. I'm not getting high off them, just getting headaches, darn it. He said he used environmentally friendly stuff, but just sanding them sends off fumes, or whatever the explanation was.
So all my stuff is in the place, but I don't know how to organize it, and I can't move stuff around on my own. Well, I guess I can - I just need to buy lots of pads for the furniture feet. My kitchen is still a mess - I have to work on that. Last night for dinner I had two bags of chips and a clif bar, and this morning a piece of bread and a cup of juice. My workout this morning sucked as a result. I bought myself an english muffin egg sandwich and ate it and it feels like I still haven't eaten anything.
Oops, I've slipped into whining. I am very excited. Just a tad overwhelmed. But one bit at a time, slowly slowly.
There will be a party here tomorrow for my birthday, so get your dancin' shoes ready.
And look out for the Perseid meteor shower!!!
METEOR ALERT: The Perseid meteor shower is underway and should reach its peak during the next 24 hours. Forecasters say the best time to look is during the dark hours before dawn on Tuesday, August 12th. The glaring Moon sets around 2:00 a.m., and that's when the Perseids could appear in numbers as high as 60 per hour. The best displays will be seen from rural areas with dark skies.
