Bah Humbug

I'm packing, packing, packing and have run out of steam. Not that much stuff, but it's confusing, like putting a bomb site into small containers.

When I was younger, I liked packing suitcases, but in recent years the chore became more frequent and for less exciting reasons than going on holiday. I even have a selection of weekend and overnight bags packed at the ready but packing still doesn't get easier. "I'm packing" makes it sound like I have a gun. I actually would have a few years back, if I'd taken a certain job!

Anyway, isn't it funny how it's easy to organize other people, but not yourself? Like how therapists need therapists...

It was quite warm yesterday at 58F/14C and it was lovely just wearing a light coat. Apparently, it went all the way up to 70F/21C in Washington. I bet people were in short sleeves there. I hope the trees didn't get confused, because it will be cold again on Saturday.

I went out to meet friends last week and this week, but due to my continuing NASM series, didn't tell you about it. I will do that when I get settled because I've been eating some delicious things and I took photos :)

The moving guys come on Saturday morning, bright and early. It will be cold and cloudy in NYC, and dull and dreary in DC. Oh dear. That must be what's blowing in with the gales we've been having today. The house moves, I swear! My bed was swaying this morning. The first time we had gale-force winds last year, I thought we had ghosts because I couldn't
see anything moving, I can only feel it.  One of my friends says I should get a dog and call it Toto, but I am certainly not moving to Kansas.

I will talk to you all in a few days. Be good!

ACK!!! I just sent you something in the mail! Will they forward to your new address?

You DO have ghosts, m'lady!

And the Easter Bunny is REAL!!!!

(Sounds like the Weather Demons™ are getting a bit big for their britches, or are they simply confused?)

So do you think you'll really be settling in this time?

No fun packing ~ tiring for sure. You're nearly there! Amazing how quickly the time has gone, and I bet you'll be ready to collapse in a happy heap once you get to DC. Exciting, though! At least I'm excited ~ just imagining the move. Good luck with the move, and will be wishing that all goes well :)

I spent this good Sunday afternoon reading all your blog posts...it's my way of 'travelling' because I can' afford it right now. Your blog takes me places I might never visit, yet I learn so much, and there's all this other delicious stuff, Olivia...food, clothes.

I read that post about your parents divorce and now I understand you more, I think.

I'm so excited for you and hope that lots of good things happen for you.

As for me, I'm making lots of little plans, trying to make things happen for me.

That's why I love blogging...I get so revved up, reading what others are doing.

By "all your blog posts" I mean the ones I've missed out on while my computer was konked out.

MJ said...

Both packing and unpacking suck =(
As for "isn't it funny how it's easy to organize other people, but not yourself? Like how therapists need therapists..." I couldn´t agree more!!!!

I am all for you getting a pet...seriously...what a lucky animal to have you as a mother! Hope the move goes smoothly and post plenty of pictures! (I know I can count on you for that!)

good luck! hope the move goes smoothly w/ no broken pieces or lost items.

is that cat at the place you'll be staying?? if so, he'll be good company, i'd think.

Liv, how delightful to read you again. This is the first day I have been in the blogosphere in a long time. I had a good laugh at your description of packing. Nik says you moved this last weekend. I hope all went well. No doubt you are tired. I decided to take a break and visit a few friends tonight in spite of my homework. Hugs and sunshine.
