Moving. Ack.

I know last week I made some progress on actually writing. This week that all fizzled. Between attending two birthday parties last weekend, trying to spend as much time with family as possible, going to the dentist three times this week (3!! I had three cavities all on different sides of my mouth so they filled them different days), preparing at work for someone else to come in, and packing (!!!) I just haven’t written.

So here is a photo of a rose.

The big moving dates are June 4 and 5. I’m somewhat prepared but there’s still so much stuff that I need to do. Pack. Arrange. Make calls about. I may not be able to devote much time to writing until after the move.

Wordless on Wednesday

Of wind & sea

Some of the most pleasant dreams that I’ve had recently have been about the beach. When I was younger, my grandparents owned a camper that they kept on a lot in Myrtle Beach. The campground was right on the beach so the shore was just a few hundred feet away from where we stayed. Nearly every summer my family would go and stay for at least one week. Sometimes my grandparents would take us (me and my three sisters). I think the last time I went was in 2005.

I have many, many memories of those weeks spent at the beach. There are a few that actually aren’t that pleasant. I have the type of skin that doesn’t really tan; I’m either ghostly white (my sisters endearingly call me Casper) or I burn, even with SPF 60. So there were a few times that I ended up with a bad sunburn. Then there’s the time I went face first off my bike and scraped my lip up terribly. And let’s not forget the 8 hour one way car trip it took to get there.

But the good things far outweigh all of that. Continue reading…

Poe’s box

Both of the cats have loved the boxes that are sitting around waiting for magic elves to start packing things. Who knows how they’ll react as more and more start piling up. Hopefully, those boxes will be full and the cats will be content to sit on top of the boxes rather than in them. I have a feeling our moving date is going to be here before I can turn around twice.

The Proverbial Cat

Is out of the bag. We are moving to Wisconsin! We, meaning husband and I, have been discussing this for some time and have been working to get all of the details in place. Employment. A place to live. Health insurance. How in the world are we going to move all of our stuff (plus two cats) more than 500 miles across country? We finally have enough of those pieces in place to make our move. (This whole entry could be so terribly punny.) (I’ll stop now.)

Don’t get me wrong: there are still heaps of uncertainty. Technically we are still waiting on our apartment application. We’re supposed to find out on Wednesday if we got it or not. I’m praying for “got it”. Don’t even get me started on health insurance because it won’t be pretty. He has a job but I technically don’t. Not yet. I’ve got something in the works which I am sure I will be discussing later. It’s just not developed enough right now to talk about but let’s just say that I’m really excited and slightly apprehensive at the same time.

As for reasons… there are several. Continue reading…
