i will never go back to the other house again
it took what felt like forever, but we are finally, once and for all, done with the old house. we still have a lot of unpacking and organizing to do at this house, but at least we can focus all our energy to here and not there. i admit i've been feeling kind of tense, which makes me suzy sunshine, but i can't help it! i just feel like there is so much to do and i want it all done yesterday. my back is still royally fucked up, my sinuses have decided to jump in on the pain wagon, i'm sick to death of taking any kind of pain medication. i'm set up to start some physical therapy soon for my back, which i think will help. i might also see a chiropractor. i also need to maybe take a deep breath and realize that stuff will get unpacked when it does, and as long as i can find towels for taking showers and my scrubs, we're doing okay. the rest can wait.
i've been going through fabrics too, getting rid of ones i've held on to for far to long. anyone doing any serious quilting or sewing and want some fabric? drop me a line and i'll let you know what i have.
i also put some new plants out front, and bought some catnip for guess who. she took a bite of the fresh stuff today and i think it blew her kitten mind. i have to say, watching her acclimate to the house and neighborhood has been the one bright spot in all the moving shenanigans. i'm endlessly amused at how amazing she finds it all, and watching her discover new nooks to hide, and new spots to perch, and seeing her happy tail and fluffy tummy all the time is pretty rad. the kids are also beyond cheerful; the girlchild made friends already with the little girls across the street and the boychik loves his new room. he's made it a cozy little man nest already. we're all settling in, and that feels pretty good. i love planning what i'm going to paint the walls and where i want to move things. i just wish i felt better and could get more done!
