Monday: Ran around like crazy getting ready for the movers (getting money orders, moving around furniture to make more room, reserving a trailer, buying boxes, going to the grocery store, reserving a storage unit.)
Tuesday: Ran around like crazy helping/supervising the movers, picking up the trailer, hauling stuff to storage, mild trauma occuring when I kept trying to smoosh a tall bookcase flat against a wall and then realized there was actually a *cat* (GB) stuck/hiding behind it (not making a sound! poor thing.) But she's O.K. now, don't call the SPCA on me please. Unpacked photographs and started crying from homesickness and missingness. :( I'm such a girl.
Wednesday: Ran around like crazy unpacking and going to my music lesson, mild trauma around 4 p.m. when one of the family children was missing but was shortly afterwards found still at school (just not where she was supposed to be). Music lesson was great however. Wednesday is also "book writing night"... the dad bounces ideas around with us about the book he's writing, which is not only really fun but makes me very ancy to start working on my own book again.
Thursday: Woke up at 8 a.m., said "Screw this" and went back to bed until noon, when Kim called me saying "Uh by the way when are they coming to get Faraday from my barn?" Called the horse shippers to get a time. Called Kim back. Now I'm having a cup of coffee, mooching around the internet avoiding a) the absolute ocean of boxes left to be unpacked (my excuse is that the cats are enjoying its jungle gym-qualities too much) and b) running more errands, which unfortunately are absolutely necessary.
Best thing about the week: The discovery of whole-grain honey-oat Kodiak flapjack mix, and that it actually tastes good with the addition of soymilk and an egg (and cooked on a skillet of course.) And unlike standard pancakes they are packed with fiber and more than the usual protein... mmmmm! Have more taste too.
Also my current drawing is actually turning out O.K. for once. Yay. Lately they have all been teh lose.
