Well, we moved on Tuesday. The movers were fast and efficient. We are still unpacking. I am tired of the boxes but it could be worse.

We need to get some new bookcases and a some other furniture (computer desk, table and storage/bookcase) for my scrapbooking stuff and then we should be good.

Work called on Wednesday with questions. I guess that means I did something... I was a little shocked.

Picking up keys.

Today, T and I are driving down to get our new apartment keys and take some things down. My last day is Monday. Movers come on Tuesday. Wednesday we unpack some. Thursday is Thanksgiving. Friday more unpacking and probably the weekend... then we'll be down to the old apartment to clean (change it up a bit and all). Should be great fun.

Not really.

Still packing...

It'll never end.

At least we have movers.

Packing continues.

I am not doing well with the whole packing thing. T's made progress. I'm just not into the groove. I have managed to make myself bleed several times. It's a wonder T lets me keep using the tape gun and the whole thing. I guess it's my part in the process. Bleeding over everything. Fun.

T's mom is out tomorrow to help me pack. I get to leave work early to do it too. FUN. I'm not sure if we'll get anything done.

All for now.

It's been a while.

I don't remember when I wrote last so let's rehash.

Mom had an accident last week and broke her leg. She is at home being taken care of by Grandma and is doing as well as we can hope.

T. got a new job and after many frustrating apartment viewings we found a great place. We're going to be moving soon. I'm not looking forward to that but it'll be fine once we're in. I'm really excited about our new place.

Not too much else. I'm suppose to be writing for National Novel Writing Month but I haven't done very well this year. I'll try harder this weekend. It's difficult when we were always away looking at apartments or I was freaking out about mom... hard to concentrate but I'm going to try really hard to work on that.

That's all I can think of. I'm going to go read and then go to bed. T's parents are out tomorrow for his birthday.

Long weekend.

Mom is back at the house recovering. Grandma came down from NJ to spend the next week to 10 days helping out. When Mom goes to the Doctor's again, we'll see what he says and what her prognosis is.

T. got the job so we spent all weekend looking for places we'd want to live and are running out of time. Very frustrating. I just wish we were done and moving to the next set of problems.

I'm waiting again.

It's something I'm not good at. I hate it. I start fixating on how much I hate waiting and it only makes everything seem slower and take longer. Ugh. My lack of patience is probably my worst fault.

Anyway, my mom fell down the stairs Monday morning and had to go the hospital. I got a text as I was arriving at work that morning. That night, Mom told me she was waiting to have it set the next day at her orthopedic surgeon's office. Yeah, she already had one. She's broken her leg/ankle a couple of times that I remember and she had her knee repaired. At least, Dr. Mazur is good and she already knew him.

He told her she needed surgery so that's this afternoon sometime EST. I'm here waiting in California to hear her recovery, etc.

That all comes on top of the waiting for the company T. interviewed with last week and the week before to come back with a counter offer. They offered him 10% more than he makes now, but it's more expensive down in San Jose so he asked for more. They underpay their engineers I guess because he got an email yesterday saying they were still debating the issue.

Fun, fun fun.

Oh yeah, Happy Birthday, Amy! What a way to spend your birthday, at the hospital waiting for Mom.

Election day.

I am so glad the election will be over today. This whole Presidential Race has gone on way too long. I'm tired of it and the signs and all the stupid messages on my answering machine. I voted by mail last week so calling me now is just ticking me off.

Rainy day.

Welcome Monday!

It rained off and on all weekend. It's raining again now. Sort of a middling rain... not too hard but not misty soft either. It's still a little to know that it's raining again and to hear the tires driving through it over and over again. But we need the rain. It's been a dry year. Not good.

The first two days of National Novel Writing Month went well. I tallied 6,000+ words over the weekend. I wasn't pushing myself too hard. I'm trying to enjoy the process and let the writing move me on. So far, it seems to be working. I was planning on doing grocery shopping after work this afternoon but I think I'll just go home. I hate carrying grocery bags in the rain. I'm sure we have something to eat.

On other news, Mom fell this morning and broke her leg. She's at home now but I'm waiting for updates since I can't just rush over. Sometimes I hate being 3,000 miles from home.

Howdy. I had planned on doing an update yesterday but my compact flash reader wasn't working and I don't like using my camera to download images... Not that I know where the cord is for that off hand. So I couldn't upload my Halloween pictures. ah well. Maybe I'll add them later.

Anyway, National Novel Writing Month has started and I am busy writing away. As this doesn't add to my word count, I'll be going now.
