You guys, it's June 7. Do you know what that means?? That means I survived six weekends of being on the road. It means I survived a weeklong work assignment away from home (and one that involved an average 10 hours of day of work OUTSIDE in the South in June). Most importantly it means that I'm on vacation and finally in possession of my new house.
Those last two things are directly related.
Yep, today kicks off Day 1 of Movecation 2010. Before this year it would have been unheard of me to take an entire week off and not leave the area code. Why waste a perfectly good week of vacation on staying at home? Sure a day or two of staycation can be great, but I've got places to see!
Now I'm just so freakin' thrilled to be off work for a significant amount of time for the first time since December that I don't care.
The Modern Love Machine and I are going to pick up the U-Haul in about an hour, and we'll spend the rest of the day moving furniture into the new place. Once that's done, we'll start moving all the little stuff that I have not bothered to box up. Who needs boxes when you're moving less than a mile away, right? Right? Ok, really the plan is to just throw things into Rubbermade containers and unpack them immediately. I've done it before, and it worked beautifully.
On Wednesday evening, the Modern Mom arrives. I asked her to join me this week, knowing she's the best at kicking my life back into order when it needs it the most. On Friday and maybe Saturday morning while the MLM takes some super-important teacher exam, the MM and I will go wedding dress shopping. Yee haw.
So that's the update on what's going on in my little corner of the world. Posting might or might'nt be light this week -- depends on how easy or difficult this move turns out to be.
In the meantime, make sure you've pre-ordered Allie's new book, Stay! I just got my copy in the mail, and I am dying, DYING, to start reading. Once I'm done, we'll have a little virtual book club meeting here to discuss.
And I feel like I need to leave you with some form of entertainment. The MLM and I have been getting caught up on Glee, and we just finished the episodes Throwdown and Mashup, both of which were very, very good (I mean, hello, Neil Diamond shout out!)
Anyway, this is quite old, but in honor of Mr. Schuester's search for a good mashup, here's one of my all-time favorites:
