On any given day, I'm hot n' cold about this moving thing. (Mostly cold with our most recent snow storm). One moment I'm sad thinking about how many memories we have made here, how great the neighbors are, and how it's taken me nearly 2 years to make friends. Then the aggravation of dealing with the rental company and their myriad of ridiculous rules kicks in and I just can't wait to go. I just get comfortable with a situation and then the new freaks me out. But me and this rental house? This is an abusive relationship. I've given a whole lot more than I have gotten in return. It's time to part ways. I have a dog-like personality I guess, loyal until the bitter end. Speaking of which, not sure what this means:
Guess he's ready to go. I should take that hint. :)
I've been busy cleaning the new house, and packing up the old house. I'm moving the slow painful way across town, a couple boxes at a time. I'll still be doing this in Jan, long after you are shaking your head going "Is she ever going to be done moving?" Yep, it's like a root canal for me too. :)
So what am I up to other than that? Well, I've made the starling discovery that I love crafting more than blogging. Don't get me wrong, I like reading your blogs. But writing mine has become a chore. I'm going to try out a new format in the future, we'll see how it goes.
On Scrapping: Presently, I just finished 4 layouts for a guest DT position. I will have a layout up on the American crafts blog at the end of the month, around the 28th, I think? I made my digital Christmas cards, waiting for them to arrive. And I am waiting for a cardstock refill and the new Cocoa Daisy kit. Thinking of starting a project for J, trying to find time to make that happen. Wondering how/when to move my scraproom. Thinking about storage. American crafts has busted my storage system. Before I made the team I had 15 packs of thickers to my name. Now, 6 times that. Yikes! How do you store your thickers?
On my mind: Moving. Moving. Moving. Did I mention moving?
Driving me nuts: Sales people. Especially sales people who are like "I'm not a sale's person, I'm not pushy like that." Maybe it's time to dust your resume off then, just saying because that doesn't make me want to buy anything.
Still makes me laugh: This conversation overheard by me at my parents house: (My sister, mom and dad all work for the government and the day before thanksgiving my sister got a 4 hour release.)
My sister: We are getting off 4 hours early release!
My mom: We aren't getting any time off.
My sister: Why not?
My mom: We don't get time off/early release unless there is threat of bodily harm.
My dad: I'm bored to death, does that count?
I'm supposed to do what???: I've made so many lists it's not even funny. I get to check things off on five different pages when I do something for the move. Gratifying or terrifying, hard to say.
Happy Monday! Until tomorrow (or the next day, or the next day). :)
