I can't sleep so I thought, hey, rather then go to bed and try to rest after moving all day while, at the same time, trying to recover from the Swine Flu, why don't I post? Why indeed.
So, the move went really well. It took quite a bit longer than I thought because we had less people than I had anticipated and, despite my best efforts, I was pretty useless due to the wheezing and frequent resting and the not being able to carry anything remotely heavy in an effort to avoid losing my breath and falling on my face, but, unfortunately, the fact that there were fewer people there meant that I had to do more so I just had to suck it up like a good little princess.
The people that did come, however, were great. One of my clients/friends from work actually brought her husband who didn't even know me AND he was sick. If it wasn't for them, I would probably be still moving right now at 1am. And also crying.
Anyways, I'm moved. And the place is great! So far. For the 5 hours that I've been here by myself. It's super big and really quiet and doesn't smell like rice. It's pretty much my dream home. No, it isn't. But it's still really awesome! I'm really excited to start unpacking and make it into my own place. I'm not as excited about the cleaning. Although I did manage to do some of it tonight before I completely ran out of steam. Baby steps, princess. Baby steps.
Before I left I had started to try and sell some of my stuff I never use online so as to try to ease the moving burden and, one of the items I was selling was the sweet battery powered lawn mower I bought last summer when I actually had a yard. I was beginning to think that I wouldn't sell it before I left when, lo and behold, some dude emailed me this morning. It's been super nice here lately so, much to everyone's surprise, lawns still have to be mowed but stores have already taken the lawn mowers off the shelves. Suckers.
So, this guy and his wife came at the very last minute to pick up the lawn mower and I gathered everything together so that, when they got there, I could just hand them everything and, when they arrived I showed them how to put the little key in the key thing and how to make the lawn mower start and I was all, "IT'S SO EASY!" and then I handed them one of the pieces that came with the lawn mower and I was like, "Now, THIS is....something....that goes....here....maybe....I'm not entirely sure what it does though." "Oh," he says, "that must be the mulcher." And I was like, "Yeah. Mulcher. And this trough thing is...also....a part....and..", "It goes on the side for the clippings," he says. And I'm all, "Right. I never use...things. Here!" And I shoved the bag in his face and stood there like a total girl who has never used a lawn mower before but I HAVE used a lawn mower before. I just never used the part things. And I knew how to take the bag off and he didn't so there.
Ok, I've entertained you all enough. I'm going to bed.
