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…

Wordless on Wednesday

Server move

Just testing things out to make sure everything came over properly. I have some work to do with other sites so progress is coming. Eventually.

Spring Cleaning

I know, it isn’t spring. Not yet, though today had highs in at least the 50s and tomorrow the forecast is a high of 68F Who has 68F weather in the middle of February? This place, I guess. Anyway. I am finally mustering up the energy to take care of some behind the scenes things for echodrift and my other websites. The theme I’m still working on. Honestly, I thought about using a pre-made one but I’ve not found one that supports the width of photos that I’ve used in my posts. Of course, I haven’t looked that hard either because I really do enjoy making my own. I think. There is the part where I haven’t made one in two years that would seem to contradict that statement.

As these things usually do, the notion has struck me at a time when my access to a computer is going to be restricted for a few days. I am going to to try to hold on to that motivation and actually see it through, though. I’ve had a bit of a rough time this year. Work has had its usual high levels of stress and aggravation. My husband caught a bad case of pneumonia back in January. The 103F fever, scary shaking chills kind of pneumonia. He’s doing well now but is still very tired. I found out yesterday after having some small troubles breathing on Monday night that now I have a mild case of pneumonia. I don’t know if I can blame him for it but I can joke about it. We have plans for this weekend that I really don’t intend to back out of.

Throughout all of it I’ve not really been making time to do things I enjoy and have instead been sort of simply existing. Even my 365 project, which I was so gung ho about a few weeks ago, is fizzling. I missed yesterday and I don’t know that I can make myself take one more bland and completely uninspired photo just so that I can say “Hah! I have a photo for today.” I would much rather put time and effort into finding and taking photos like this:

030/365

Opportunities like that don’t come along every day, though. And I know that one has to get out and look for those opportunities but I don’t think I can do that right now.

I am going way off topic. This is what happens when I don’t really have a subject in mind, start writing late in the evening, and then realize that it’s much later in the evening and that I have many, many things to do before I sleep. So. I’m sick but hopefully getting better. Technical things will be going on for echodrift.com over the next few days. DNS servers will be changing so I will wait until everything is settled to start updating again. Updating is something I do fully intend to do. Lots to do this weekend and I’m not ready for it yet.
