Okay! We’re moving tomorrow! It’s 10:18pm, and we painted all yesterday afternoon/evening (four rooms in six hours, whoo-hoo!) and Won-ju and I cleaned the house today, and I’ve been packing frantically all night, and the movers come at 9:30 tomorrow.
I hate moving. Have I mentioned that? Lala just pointed out that while she also hates moving (who doesn’t?), for her it’s just a pain in the ass. For me, it’s physically and emotionally upsetting. I hate it. I hate this feeling of things not being in their places. Completely stressed out. Bleah. It’s for the BEST reason in the world, and I can’t wait to move, and I’m overjoyed to have the chance, but I’m quite overwhelmed tonight.
Also, DSL will be off for a week, starting tomorrow, so I really will be MIA for at least a week. I’m packing the computer up now, and hopefully in the week that it’s put away, the discoloration on the screen from the glass of wine I spilled on it will go away. Sigh. (But it works just fine; god bless Apple.)
So here are a couple of pics to tide us over till then, eh?
The painting party. We went with yellow for the walls in the living room and two walls in the dining room (my choice) and one tangerine wall in the back of the dining room (Lala’s). It’s awesome. It was a little (read: a lot) alarming when I cracked the paint can, but I love it. Thank you Jodi and Kris, for the cake and the crack painting, Jenn, for the mammoth gift of the table, Geena, for the use of your truck, and Christy and Beth for hooting in the bathroom while you painted it scarlet. Many hands really DO make light work.
And thank you, Won-ju, for keeping me sane during the cleaning today.
Ta-da! The fabulous table and chairs were free, from a house that my realtor is selling for someone else, and my friend Jenn somehow got that enormously heavy table into the back of the truck by herself to bring it to me. Life is good.
And now I have to pack the bathroom. The kitchen is done, at least. I HATE packing the kitchen. I can’t wait to sleep. And I really can’t wait to sleep in our new house tomorrow.
