We Moved... Or Twitched...

Well, we moved again. Finally. We got the keys to the new house on the day after Thanksgiving and every single day since then Lori and I have either been packing or working on the new place. I actually took four days off work because things were falling behind and I needed to regain some sense of control. I was mostly successful.

We moved last weekend (thanks, Ray, Joe and Jim! - and Grammy for watching Melody during the move!) and it took the whole weekend to do it, so we're still setting up, finding things, etc. There's a lot to do and we're both beyond tired. Sometimes I think the only way Lori knows I'm still alive is that I twitch every once in awhile. This week, I'm back to work but only physically so. I find myself drifting off at the computer and I have to visit the bathroom to slap cold water onto my face. Still, we're in even though we can't find everything.

We did get our fake Christmas tree up on Sunday though. So there is some holiday joy to be found. We probably won't do a real one this year with all of the moving expenses, but at least we have the fake one. This is the first year we haven't had a real one but it's also extenuating circumstances.

Now if I can just get the rest of the drapes up, the mailbox back out front and find my writing stuff. After all, I've got a new draft of "Chance for the Future" due to my publisher on January 15. I'd better wake up and get cracking.
