Moving day, part two: Why-am-I-doing-this?

First, apologies for no Thursday or Friday posts. Moving kicked my ass. Even though I wasn't doing any of the heavy lifting (thanks, Baby Skullhead!), it was still time consuming, exhausting, and stressful. On the bright side, the house we moved into is light-filled and wonderfully spacious. I love it so much that if it were a person, I would squeeze it until its head popped off.

Second, I will now share with you my initial configuration (sans art) for one of our living room walls:
I'm so happy! They kinda look like crap right now, but this the first time my deco pieces (1920s green dental cabinet and black industrial bookcase) have met our ginormous 1950s green couch with white piping. Everything is original, which would be more awesome if the fatheads who moved the deco pieces across country last year hadn't broken the shit out of the bookcase glass. We had the jerks put the bookcase into storage, so I didn't see the damage until months later. And of course these supposedly professional movers won't return my calls now that I have a complaint. Bastards. I hope their faces fall off.

I was so depressed about the bookcase I refused to do anything with it while it was in storage, so the bookcase was still full of broken glass when moving day came. At least this time I skipped the "professional" movers and had Husband-cat and my freakishly strong friend lug the thing around. They thought I was crazy for trying to move a bunch of broken glass, but my response was: "You can clean it up or you can STFU, because today is moving day and I ain't touching it." I thought it was hilarious that they'd rather judge and complain then actually do anything about it either. But hey--they managed to move it without disturbing the shards of glass even a little bit! That's my boys. Anyway, I'm making it safe for She Who Must Be Obeyed by blocking the opening with a case of wine. Because we're classy like that. Or should I say klassy?

I'd like to leave you with a thought for your day, courtesy of Aunt Macguff, but first, exposition. Aunt Macguff recently broke her elbow (whole nother story) and has a cast. As I said previously, a mere break will not stop her from trying to use the banged-up arm or perform activities completely inappropriate for a healing woman. On speaking of putting in earrings today she said the following, "I did it and nothing's bleeding so I'm doing really well! I would have stopped if there was bleeding."


  1. I would have forgotten, to put earrings on, that is. But that is another story altogether...

    Glad the move is done ... stay put for a while! :)

  2. My goal is to live on that couch for the next week. Haven't managed to sit on the bloody thing yet, but keeping hope alive!

  3. Your writing has impressed me. It’s simple, clear and precise. I will definitely recommend you to my friends and family. Regards and good luck.

    1. Thank you very much! Moving is whole skill set as I'm sure you well know.
