The past week is a blur in my mind. I’ve put about 600 miles on my car, driving back and forth between old house and new house a gazillion times. Not only that, but my life is in boxes and I have no idea how to find what I need. The worst part is my office. While I was at the new house awaiting cable, phone, blinds, and water softener installation, my daughter had to quickly box up my office because the workman arrived to disassemble my office modulars (which will eventually be reinstalled in my garage). The rest of this week, I will attempt to get my office into working order. It won’t be easy.
I am covered with bruises on my arms, legs, and hips. And I’ve kicked my bare toes into things about two dozen times at least. I never would have made it through this move without my #1 daughter’s help (#2 daughter was out of town). Daughter #1 used her week of vacation to get me moved, and all I can say is, “She’s Super Woman!!!”
The world continued without me. Let’s see. I heard that Rosie left The View in a tiff. I never watch The View so it doesn’t impact me. Jordin won American Idol. No surprise there. LOST ended its third season with some answers and more questions (although surely there isn’t anyone who thinks they will actually get off the island). Daughter #1 was one of the flight attendants on Ellen DeGeneres’s show that was filmed on a Delta flight and aired on Tuesday, May 22. She says she could be seen at the very end, but if so, I missed her, despite my DVR replays; she enjoyed the experience and said Allison Janney is a real hoot.
Oh, on Wednesday, not long after the professional movers left the house — and with my garage filled with boxes as well as every room in my house — the UPS driver pulled up and delivered three more boxes. These were filled with hot off the presses copies of Return to Me. My daughter and I looked at each other and said in unison: “Not more boxes!!” But really, I was glad they made it to my new address.
Well, I’d best tackle a few more of those infamous boxes before the day is over.
