OMFG we are in the new house.  I can’t find anything.  It looks worse today than it did yesterday, and we haven’t even touched the packed 18′ pod (UNIT) trailer in the driveway.  I have to go back to work tomorrow, very backed up and will no doubt have many extra hours to put in this week.  Gag.

I wish there was a closet rod somewhere in the house.

It’ll be great when we get all moved in and sitch-ee-ated.  But that may be after 2012 at this rate.  GAWD.

One thing at a time, baby steps, deep breaths, etc etc blah blah blah.

But we’re out of  BumFuck, Egypt! Yayyyyy!

Why it’s okay to move

… away from Yuba City.

Going to dinner tonight  – look over to the right.  Voila!   Chickens!  I like chickens as much as the next guy but what does it say when they run around downtown and live in parking lots?   Mostly around the fast food joints. There are a LOT of them.

Bob took this picture.  Fecking iPhones.  You wouldn’t know this was even chickens w/out the arrows and explanation.

Good friends

My sister’s dog Angus and new friend Pearl.  Pearl came from the dump but obviously polished up nicely.

This was written by a 5 year old (some years back).  It just keeeels me.   Was your 5 year old that smart?  Mine, either.  Or if he was, he was in the wrong environment.

Miracles Do Happen

Someone actually bought this house in this stinking economy.  Signed it away this morning.  The buyers got a helluva bargain.  But – so did we on the other end!  It all works out.  I am finally moving out of Bumfuck, Egypt, and into the Sacramento area.  20-30 minute commute during heavy traffic, about 12 minutes with no traffic.  Compare and contrast this to my commute of the last 7 years, wherein I drove an hour each way if there was NO traffic.  Gawd.  I so happy to be getting an hour plus back in my day you can’t even imagine.

We were going to downsize, but mainly the only downsizing we did was in storage.  The new garage is quite a bit smaller, so ToolMan may be having some issues.  There will be less room for junk in the house, too, which is probably a good thing as I am an avid junk collector.   We are going through stuff now, trying to sort and toss and give away.  It’s so hard!   Does a person really need 27 t-shirts?  I think so.  They are from all the fun places I’ve been, and would not remember going to were it not for the t-shirt.  I have a lot of mirrors, too.  Big ones.  I like mirrors because of the way they reflect light, but they don’t really do much good in the closet.  And they weigh a lot.  And they’re hard to pack.  But nice ones are expensive these days.  What if I don’t have enough mirrors sometime?  Wait, that’s just plain dumb.   I’ll give one of them awayand take a picture of it for memory’s sake.
