I just sold my house and am moving to a wonderful condo in about a week. I'm temporarily living in hell. Box Hell and I feel like Double 07 - Agent Oy Vey. As Psychgrad so specifically told me, I'm not the only one that's ever moved in this world and I should just suck it up. So rather than continue to complain to Psychgrad who clearly has zero tolerance for my whining, I'm here to share my sense of misery -but only for a short while.
For all the events that I had all good intentions of entering this month and didn't come through - I aplogize. I'm currently eating off paper plates, one coffee cup and the ultimate generosity of friends and family who have either invited me over for dinner or taken me out with them. I guess it's hard to get rid of me when I'm holding on to their legs as they try to get out the front door and they're dragging me across the floor with them. I know, I'm seriously pathetic. Next weekend is the dreaded "garage and contents sale". I'm downsizing and have way too much furniture for a condo. Plus I just don't know what I'll do with 5 t.v.'s and my ever faithful Weber BBQ. BBQ's are not allowed in the condo.
In the midst of all the insanity, the poor dogs are trying (unsuccessfully) to make sense of why their space is now lined with boxes, boxes and more boxes.
Psychgrad's note: Here is it in writing - I want this buffet stand when you're ready to give it up. Hence, Actorboy is S.O.L.
Giz's comment: There seems to be some competition going on - Actor Boy has already swooped in for mom's throw aways and didn't have room for the buffet in the van. Since Actor Boy already took one of the antique side tables, you can have the buffet. You can also have the lovely diningroom set too if you want it ;)...that's a bit of an inside joke since Psychgrad absolutely hates the diningroom set.
To the winners of Tried, Tested and True 2 - I boxed your prizes and then realized that all my beads are packed so will have to wait until I unpack my bead room to be able to include your prizes from Blue Marigold. In the meantime, for those who have not already chosen, please go visit the Blue Marigold website and pick out your desired style.
The good news - the place I'm moving to is perfect for me and they'll be taking me out of there in a pine box. My biggest criteria was a great kitchen and I'm happy to say, it has a great kitchen. Once I'm moved, I'll take pictures and share. You're all welcome to the house warming party. If everyone doesn't fit into the condo, no worries, there's a fabulous party room with full dining room and kitchen. Bring your suits for a swim in the indoor pool and we can watch cooking shows in the private theatre in the building.
Psychgrad and I would like to acknowledge receipt of the Brilliant Weblog Award from Ohio Mom from Cooking in Cleveland. Thanks "Mom" for this lovely award. We will, with pride display this award on our blog. It seems still so strange when we're given an award. I feel like I have to look twice and say something like "you talkin' to me???"
There are many blogs I'd love to share this award with. I will - once I get settled.
And Psychgrad - seriously thanks for picking up the slack while I'm in transition.
