I am proud to report that we have packed up several 'medium' moving boxes and shipped them on ahead. Well, we packed them and my kind, lovely mother-in-law took them to the UPS store because we were in Las Vegas. Yes, a week before we move across several states, all of which get more snow than Florida, we went to Las Vegas. Don't you love a husband with such ambition? He planned the whole trip and all I really had to do was show up, but I was feeling stressed. Me? Stressed? Unbelievable! Unfortunately this included an overwhelming feeling of nausea on an airplane, which had nothing to do with turbulence or anything plane-related. At times, I am a nutcase, I tell you. Side note: Long story, but I did get a free massage at the hotel spa, which did a fairly good job at relieving my stress. I think I'll need another one tomorrow.
So anyway, now that we're back in eastern time and the humidity has gone from 10% to 90% (just look at my hair to believe that one!), we're back in moving mode. I am really trying to be a glass half full person during all of this, which I like to think I am on a daily basis. We do have a lot of clothing still in the closet that needs to be packed, but we also have a big fat suitcase packed up. And several boxes in transit. And a few other boxes in the dining room ready to be loaded into the car in a few days.
Bottom line, if I've ignored a facebook message, e-mail, or even worse, a phone call, I apologize. When we're settled, or beginning to be settled, in graduate housing two weeks from today, I should be back to normal. That is, I will be better able to communicate with all this newfangled twenty-first century technology. Thank God I don't have a Twitter account. Until then, please take a number and I will be with you as soon as possible.
Also- birthday messages are allowed during this time. Between the moving and packing and such, I also am supposed to turn 27 next Saturday. As I will be a vagabond with no address for two weeks, this should be an interesting year for birthday cards, don't you think?
