We move two weeks from today

Today was full of ridiculous amounts of stress, some related to the move, some not. Ever have one of those days that just makes you want to eat your own brain? Yeah. It almost makes me forget that I got to do fun stuff today too.

Aimee came up so I could take her to the yarn store on Alberta today. Everytime I’m in a yarn store I want to knit something and then when I try knitting I get bored out of my mind. I know other people love it, but it just makes me restless.

Rob and I went out to dinner tonight at Bernie’s Southern Bistro. We got a gift certificate from my realtor for recommending him to Christina. I’d gone to Bernie’s once before and been underwhelmed. Alas, tonight my experience was repeated. Part of it, of course, is that I grew up with really good Southern food–allow me to introduce you to my mother and you will understand why I am hard to impress–but the rest of it was just that it wasn’t all that well balanced. Rob was not impressed either. It’s not bad, mind you, just not what the ambiance wants you to think it will be. Still it was nice to get out of the house.

And now, I return to packing and labeling things for the yard sale. I am looking forward to the road trip. It’ll be so peaceful with the open road, Rob, and two cats–wait.

    Sympathies! I moved last year (only across the city) and it was hellish. Ended up homeless for over a month, each living with parents and one of our children. At least its two cats, and not two under-sixes! 😀

    Chang: It should be an adventure. I will post everytime I have an internet connection. Lord knows how often that will be.

    RFLong: Yoicks! At least we have an apartment we are moving to. I do not envy your move, at all.

    Well, we survived…

    Doesn’t it make you feel better about your adventure. The trip planned sounds marvelous!

    There’s a yarn store on Alberta? What’s the cross street. I have got to visit next time I’m in town.

    Do they have thread for lacemaking or just yarn. I’ll take either.

    I’ve been to that yarn store–the footprint is small but it’s filled with touchable interesting stuff.
