Getting down to the wire.

2 weeks from today I will be en route to my new home; most likely hopped up on some serious caffeine. I'm still tired and a mess (I went to work today with my shirt on inside out), but things ARE getting done. My neighbor came over tonight to complete some of the "to do" list I gave him. (I paid him of course.) He unclogged the dishwasher, took out my window air conditioner, anchored the new water heater, fixed the wiring to the doorbell, took apart a wall-desk, fixed the bathroom floor vinyl and a whole bunch of other little things. He also put in my new front fence and it looks GREAT. He is such an awesome friend and neighbor. I don't know what I would have done without him. His ex left him a few years ago (I didn't care for her too much) and when mine left, we became pretty close. Not romantically, just a really great friend to talk to, have a beer with and we have helped each other out a LOT. He had my mom and I over for his famous pressure cooker ribs (Yum!) last night. He has a new girlfriend that I really like - she is perfect for him; nice, down to earth and just a sweetheart. I'm sooo happy for him - he deserves the best. As it turns out, they are going to rent my mom's house here in Seattle! They get very low rent on a huge house, and my mom gets a built-in fix-it guy. Seriously, Denin can do ANYTHING. He even untangled my necklace last night when I was getting frustrated with it! LOL I am going to miss him a lot. People like him are a rare breed. My mom has adopted him into our family. :-) I asked him if I could fly him down to Cali when I had a problem - he said "Sure!" LOL!!

Tomorrow I'm going to dinner with an old boyfriend (he's married now - it's platonic) and Saturday is my step son's graduation. THAT should be interesting. I'm not sure if my ex is going or not because he told me awhile back he was moving to Texas, but if he does I'm sure he will have his new wife with him. (He got remarried.) Hopefully he is happy now.

So as you can see, I do not have one spare minute. I got home from work late tonight at 8:30 pm (UG), and am trying to get this stupid packing done. The movers do the big stuff and breakables, but I'm responsible for all the little crap. I'm starting to get excited now as it gets closer and closer. I will have a little over 3 weeks to settle in, get some sun, swim, and go to Disneyland and Knott's Berry Farm! I'm such a kid. I'm tired of being a grown up right now...

Austin. I have no idea why, I'm kinda out of the loop. :-)

Everything will fall into place. It has to. No matter what, get rest whenever possible, and definitely have fun along the way. Moving is very stressful, but change can be very good. I'm rooting for you all the way.
