The Countdown

And so the countdown begins. 6. This is the number of days until my move, my new blog, my new life, my first apartment, my first subscription to an actual newspaper, etc. I can't wait to get started on it all, but as usual, am taking my leisurely time packing. I must say that I am leaps and bounds ahead of myself based on previous years - but nowhere near the goal.

I got alot accomplished this week though. I took the car in for inspection, went shopping for everything I need that isn't measurement or color reliant, ran errands, called family members, got all of the crates that are coming with me out of the attic, threw out two trash cans worth of old soaps and stuff from the bathroom, and filled that garbage bag in the garage to the top with clothes. For fun, I celebrated my parents' birthdays (Happy Birthday today for Dad), saw Miami Vice (quite good), watched a bunch of Firefly episodes, went to church, and took the dog for a walk. I even worked on Thursday night to earn the gas money for all the running around I did. It was a good full week.

This coming week is going to be an all new challenge. I am thrilled to be starting it on a good note and really looking forward to getting all of this behind me. That being said, according to an email I got from Marco and this interview with Eleanor Holmes Norton, I will be leaving the country again. Luckily though, as I pointed out to Marco, I will actually be living in Maryland and am therefore still officially a resident of the United States. Speaking of which, I don't have a home phone number yet, but I do have my new cellphone number and my address so ask if you want it.

I know this has been a short one, but Dad is napping downstairs and Mom is making eggplant parmigianna (sp?) so I have some quiet time to make a few more advances up here before dinner. I will not procrastinate. There are only 6 more days and about the same number of tons of things I need to drag downstairs to the garage. Love always, ~Heather
