Hello from Nebraska!

Hi, it's me! I have finally dug myself out from under the mountain of boxes that have been my only focus for the last 2 weeks. All but three of them are empty and my new apartment is starting to look like my home. Doesn't smell like my home yet, though.

Here are a few observations on moving:
  • Moving sucks.

  • I might actually have been better off renting a god-forsaken, don't make me tell that story again UHaul rental truck and doing this move myself. It would have cost about the same and I have no doubt that I would have ended up with less damage to my belongings.

  • I have a lot of stuff.

  • And yet, I don't have a lot of stuff.

  • I DO. NOT. LIKE. misplacing things. It's inevitable in a move but I almost started crying this morning when I couldn't find the capris I wanted to wear.

  • The capris were in the dryer. Shuddup.

  • Nebraska is HOT. Yes, yes, I realize that in January I will be saying Nebraska is COLD...but today it's 97 degrees PLUS the head index. Dude, that's HOT!

  • I knew I would, but I really, really, really love having full access to a pool. Even a pool that isn't even remotely cool right now.

  • Filling out job applications online is annoying. How the hell am I supposed to remember what my salary was 5 years ago?

  • I adapt to the not working thing way too easily.

  • Mary Alice flew home on Monday. I miss her.

  • I am happy.


  1. Glad to hear you are happy there, and hope all goes well for you there in Nebraska! :-)

  2. This is GREAT news!!!! SO glad to hear the move went well and you're happy there. :)

  3. I miss you too. You aren't 13 blocks away anymore.

    Mary Alice

  4. Lizzy - thanks for the good wishes! So far, so good!

    Pissy - I keep marveling at my happiness, it is so easy right now.

    Mary Alice - do not make me cry.
