the cut & hustle
v's ballet recital was last night at the lila cockrell and she received her fiveyear award and promotion to pointe, so on this homefront, this is huge.
i am waiting for morning light to go out and start selling the items that didn't make the cut for the next house since there is no room in the new old inn.
the goal for this twoday garage sale is to not have any of this stuff left and to have the appropriate cash in hand to pay the movers to move the big stuff for me on monday. i will come back and pack a u-haul with all of the boxes on tuesday or wednesday.
newsflash & permission approved: if you were ever to run into me ever looking at candles or in the tea section of a market, you can officially bop me upside the head, bunny foofoo style. please.
the most exciting part is that we get to sleep "in real live beds!" (as v exclaimed) on monday in our real live new old house and that i reactivated my netflix account after all of this move hoopla... season three of weeds will be there on monday. i have missed netflix this month. it's the best boyfriend that a girl could have.
we transported three of the cats on wednesday and will arrive with the other two and our three pooches...my dear, i believe the clampetts just arrived. i miss my babies, but had read & then been told about having them get situated in the new house before you move so they know it is home. i would have taken all five at once, but we couldn't get our paws on them all at once.
i guess the moral of the story is even if you think you cannot bear to pack another box or organize yet another garage sale, just try taking one step, even if your bones say 'oh, hell naw.' just do it. somehow, mojo kicks in somewhere along the way and you just might surprise yourself, girl.
hopefully, i will have snippets of home to share this upcoming week. warning: i decided on orange for the studio. it saves energy since you walk by and think the light is already on.
mmmm...go green, go orange.
