Sorry people – moving, you know.

Yesterday I was about to burst with creative juices for which I had no outlet. I really really badly want to be able to sew (with my new sewing machine 5k1||z), but there’s nowhere in my house to sew (or to get around boxes). So, I was thinking about redesigning some stuff here, but it just feels so… well… immaterial. I want something to touch, something I can hang on a wall (proverbially) and step back to look at. I need texture and smell; sometimes a computer just can’t cut it.

In about 3 weeks, I’ll be living in a new place. I am blessed to have people in my life with money who like to purchase things (for me!), so we now have 2 humongous (7’ X 11’) area rugs that are gorgeous, as well as a new couch. The rest will be purchased with our own money. I’m sure I’ve mentioned our current living room set before, but I’m too lazy to go searching; we’re getting rid of all of it – the massive couch, the entertainment center, the coffee table, and the end table. Once we’re settled in our new place, we’ll be getting a new dining set, as well. All of the aforementioned pieces of furniture were purchased in San Diego circa 1985, and we got them a few years ago when the B’s mom decided to finally get new stuff. The furniture, all of it, belongs in a cheap retirement home in FL somewhere. It’s bad, people, bad. I can’t wait to see it go far far away where I never have to look at it again.

Pictures are actually forthcoming from certain events that aren’t too far in the past. The B and I went to the new place last night for probably the last time before we move in, as the current tenant is coming back from wherever this weekend. I’ll miss going in like I own the place and pretending that I live there already. I keep telling myself that it will all be over soon – too soon, in fact. We have less than 2 actual weeks of packing time, as we’re off to Canada for the T-day weekend to be… well… Canadian, I guess. There will be plenty of photo opportunities there as well.

Top priority: Stop gnashing teeth together at night, so I don’t wake up with a jaw ache. Damned stress.


the only way of preventing that grinding of teeth at night is indeed to reduce stress, or take naps during the day. i used to do that too, when i first started in my job...(but then i realised i could quit and i felt better...). show us photos of the new flat once you've decked it all out.

Wow, that is nice that you are surrounded by lovely people who like to buy you furniture!! Can I borrow a few of them? All my furniture is still from Ikea.
