It’s Friday!! It’s FRIIIDAY!!!
Happiest day to you all! Life has been flying by over in my neighborhood, we somehow have a mere 42 days until The Big Move, that is not a lot of days. My head has been in overdrive lately, thinking so many different random thoughts that it is hard to shut it off. These aren’t so much worrying thoughts, just a lot of gears turning, turning, turning. I think I expected blogging to help me sort through all these thoughts, but somehow the opposite has been true. Oh life, never doing what I expect you to!
Since my last novel-length post about our new apartment, we’ve signed the lease! Hooray for a big box that has been checked off my To-Do list! I’ve even reserved the trailer we’ll be renting to tow along to our new big adventure, which is incredibly forward thinking, for a “Let’s Wing-It” personality like mine. Move-wise, my head has turned to packing and selling as much sh*t as possible in the next 40 days.
This week we are dogsitting for the calmest fluffball there ever was while his parents are out eating delicious seafood on the east coast (bring me back crab cakes or I keep the dog, warning you Gen.) The apartment has been dog proofed, or as other people call it, “cleaned.” I am too excited about this, I can already tell. (RY! Just buy me a puppy already!!!)
I gave notice at work, so I can talk about the month of August now and not feel like I am lying to all my friendly co-workers. I didn’t realize how much head space the guilt/nerves of giving notice were taking up until I did it yesterday and felt 5 lbs lighter. Even went out and got a haircut to celebrate! …Well also because I was sporting a fugly grown out pixie/mullet.
A few posts ago I whined, as I so often do, about not having enough time to travel South to Nashville but extra time has been found! Days off have been approved! Car rentals have been reserved! Friends have been coerced into feeding and snuggling our kittens for a weekend! We’re spending the weekend of the 4th in America’s Music City with my Lo and I am so excited. I’ve somehow not seen my person in 7 months and that is just outrageous. If I’m really good, I may even get to meet a Virgil, probably the true star of my trip, I predict.
When I got home from my de-mulletting last night, my sweet Ry (who’d apparently sensed my unease and need for quiet time) surprised me with candles, jazz music, a cocktail, mini pb cups, Inspiration-Its & a clean bedroom to blog and generally relax in. I am sitting in the best smelling, comfiest little corner ever! Ry, you overwhelm me with love each and every day, thank you forever.
I hope you all have the most wonderful weekend!
ps- ‘Inspiration-Its’ are Cheese-Its that ry customizes to fit my varying cheesy needs, such as: Apolog-Its, Attentive-Its, Anniversary-Its, and on and on. Marrying a kid at heart is the very best thing I’ve ever done.
