still alive

Wow, this is a really disjointed post. Know what? I'm tired, and I really don't feel like trying to make it cohesive, so read with caution, it's not pretty!


Yes, Laura, I am still alive. Unfortunately, this plant is not. Yep, this is the sad little plant that didn't make it through the move. Here's a picture of it in better days.


This move has really thrown a wrench into my routines; I can't seem to get anything accomplished, and that really stinks. "Update blog" has been on my to-do list for over a week, so here it is, a brief update, just enough to be able to cross one item off of the growing list.

I have just a few pictures from the move, or rather, from the moving in part.

This is the contents of a typical box that we unpacked.

And this is the amount of paper required to properly pad the items.

We weren't saving any trees, people.

My garage is full of unpacked boxes - item #35 on my to do list? "call moving company and schedule box pickup" - I should probably do that today so we can park in the garage for at least part of the winter.

In totally unrelated news - We are driving to Houghton tomorrow! DT - here I come!

Eat some tostada pizza and have a couple yummy fishbowls for me! I really need to go to Houghton sometime.

Sorry to hear about your poor plant. That is why I always buy artificial plants....I can't keep it alive!
