Well, the move is done. Now comes the hard part—getting settled. Moving and remodeling at the same time is no picnic. And as much as moving sucks, it's infinitely harder when you're moving into an existing household.

So for now I'll be playing a weird Jenga/Tetris hybrid until we make space for all my sundry belongings. Gee, I was really proud of the 5 car loads of crap I dumped at the garage sale... now it doesn't seem like quite enough! I'm sure there will be more tossing of junk. Good times.

But all in all, I am happy to be with my [livejournal.com profile] arbiter_of_cool. We have already had the "There will be NO dumping!" conversation. I'd be homeless, and he'd have done a lot of grunt work for nothing. So I guess we're stuck. ;-)

Looks like the contractors will start creating the master bedroom in the next week or so. Having a real closet will help matters infinitely. Today, however, we'll be working on the kitchen and utility room, as those also affect the housemates.

Good thing I'm dating a massage therapist. Just sayin'.

As always, big love to one and all (and sorry I don't have time to read/catch up).

    As per usual, the last few weeks went by in a blur. For you intrepid readers to whom it matters, here are the highlights (such as they are):

  • Laid low by migraine badness for most of the Independence Day holiday week. It was intermittent and mostly controllable by meds, but prolonged (as in a week or more). Mneh. Bah. Feh. Guttural sound of displeasure.

  • Movie happiness of late: Ratatouille, Saved! (wickedly funneh), A History of Violence, Talladega Nights... all quite varied & enjoyable in different ways. I think there were more random DVD viewings, but today I cannot brain; I have teh dumb. Read more... )

  • In a bit of a funk this week. Not sure what that's about, but I'm hoping that some cathartic cleaning will help my clear my head. Actually, I don't intend to clean as much as sort, toss and organize. I have my list of big stuff to be sold at the garage sale next month, but I am preparing to sort through my closets to reduce the clutter I bring with me.

  • Big items up for grabs:
  • Washer & dryer (latter can use either gas or electric)*
  • Full size headboard, footboard & matching dresser (wood)
  • Freestanding hammock
  • Glass-top dining room table & 4 wooden chairs*
  • Futon w/black metal frame, black mattress & navy blue mattress cover & bolster pillows

    There will be more for sale, but these items* will be available in a little over a month—the rest can be yours now, if you want. If you're interested, let me know (you'll need to provide transport). Want a photo? Measurements? Drop a comment and I'll oblige.


  • So.. there's your bi-monthly recap. Random pics of things that have amused or intrigued me may be forthcoming in the next few days.

    I know that faire is over, QAL is on a break and so I should ostensibly have more free time... but that is a myth. Free time is something other people have, apparently. Not that I mind too much... but right now I'd be glad to be able to use vacation days for an actual vacation. As it is, I will be hoarding time to get settled once the final move happens on Sept. 1st.

    *battens down hatches*

    Big love to one and all.

    Things are busy busy 'round these parts! Trekked to East Texas to see [livejournal.com profile] arbiter_of_cool's folks two weekends ago, preceded by MC Arson's celebration of his 30th natal day. As Arbiter pointed out, it's pretty hard to feel sorry for him; he was the youngest one there! Family time was good, too. Met his sister who was both a hoot and a holler—though her eldest son took great pleasure in his domination of an Uno game (yes, I got trounced).

    Unfortunately, upon our return I fell victim to some cold/allergy thing. Still sniffling, though I got some Flonase to top off my regular Zyrtec. Bah. I mean, it's not like I lost an eye or have cancer or anything... but I say "Bah" nonetheless. (I either need to get well, or get sick enough where I sleep for a couple days and get over it. This in between crap is where I get uncharacteristically whiney and unbearable.)

    Spent last weekend celebrating the nearing end of [livejournal.com profile] twilightfenix's single days. [livejournal.com profile] redwing planned a perfectly suited event, including a picnic, Gameworks and cocktails, and drunken hotel silliness. Played Apples to Apples, which is entertaining in and of itself. Add ridiculous amounts of Wild Turkey Honey and you will laugh until your face hurts (trust me on this— at least it's one of the more fun ways to get sore). If you ever hear of a punk band called the Flirtatious Amputations... well, my bad.

    Enjoyed a farewell luncheon at Benihana the following day, then headed back to spend time with Arbiter. He was playing "Guillotine" with [livejournal.com profile] sashastarchaser and [livejournal.com profile] antmanx. I crashed a few rounds. Silliness ensued.

    After dinner, I opted to use a soon-to-expire Borders coupon to start the Dead in Dallas vampire series. I think I recall someone on my flist ([livejournal.com profile] middnightclear?) saying they were fun. Then I righted a travesty. You see, my beloved Arbiter had never partaken of gelato joy. With Paciugo so nearby, how could I let him continue, ungelatoed, for any longer? Yum.

    Tonight we begin the home remodeling adventure and take the first steps towards making the House of Doors my future home. We're meeting with [livejournal.com profile] kathyc514 to pick out new tile (and, possibly, paint). I am excited! The prospect of sorting through and packing all my crap is a bit daunting, but at least I can begin moving over non-essential items soon. That "bits and pieces" approach may well save my sanity come late-August.

    So... I may not be as social as I'd like this summer, but it's not extended post-Scar hibernation. I'm trying to sort all my stuff—which currently fills a small two-bedroom house—to I can sell what I don't need/don't like and fit my world into the House of Doors, endeavoring not piss off its current inhabitants (or force [livejournal.com profile] arbiter_of_cool to dump me for the sheer inanity of it all).

    Big love to one and all. North Texans, don't forget your water wings (or a spare pair of oars).

    sandmansister: (Strength Zazu)
    Made it through my first bout without making too much of an ass of myself. I think I still have a looooong way to go to be a primo blocker but acquitted myself admirably considering I had all of 1 scrimmage under my belt before playing for real.

    But for the Only I Could Manage ThisTM file, I hurt myself on the victory lap. (Yes, the Hotties won. w00t!) See, we were skating on a sport court and it's a bit faster than a regular wood floor. I was all juiced up from the win and got a little too fast for myself on the corner. Realized I was going to wipe out so thought I'd make it spectacular... opted for baseball-style slide in which I traveled several feet. Except I somehow managed to completely lose a toe stop (not sure if that was before or after the fall)... and I hit my ribs when I landed. HARD.

    Yeah, I managed to do my worst injury to myself -- on the freakin' victory lap.

    S-M-R-T. D'Oh!


    Ribs are still feeling tender and sore. But at least I'm distracted from the few smaller bruises on my knees and arms. (Now I see what that psychic meant when he called me "pessmimistic to the point of optimism." Hmmmm.) Looking forward to Dr. Steve tomorrow. Then of course will come home to more boxes and promptly get myself knotted up again. LOL

    In other news, I am starting to get settled in the new digs. Haven't unpacked much. Been spending time assembling new shelves etc. so that the things being unpacked will have a place to live. Put together a new wine rack, small cabinet, 7' bookshelf and got the desk/hutch halfway done. Black & Decker 6v drill/screwdriver is my new bestest friend. EVUH.

    Haven't even touched the kitchen yet. It's getting ugly... but must have the office/music room together before QAL descends on my house Thursday for rehearsal. For all of that, it's starting to look like a home. A bit. If you squint and ignore the 20-30 additional boxes lying in wait in the garage.
