New rental, new job, new town. We relocated three weeks ago and just about everything has had issues, it's exhausting. Very few things went smoothly but I am thankful that nothing has been catastrophic. We have moved every 3 or 4 years together since 2003 with very few issues so I guess it was time … Continue reading First 3 weeks
The second day of packout was set for Monday but by 2:30 pm they had not shown up, called or texted. The parent company had texted in the morning confirming it though. So, we made some calls and were told they were scheduled to be here Tuesday not Monday. Isn't that just swell. A whole … Continue reading The Pack-out Saga Continues
We set the alarm for 5 am to sort ourselves out before the anticipated 8 am arrival of the packers. In all of our previous moves they showed up first thing in the morning.

Those of us that suffer from cold sores have a love/hate relationship with having to wear a mask. Love the concealment/hate the bacteria transfer.
I miss lipstick. Covid rules means I have worn a mask outside the house since March and also means I haven't worn lipstick, lip liner, lip stain at all and I kinda miss it. Makeup in general has been going on sparingly the last several months and I really enjoy makeup. I have always loved … Continue reading Covid Commentary 3
Since there won't be as much travel or food type posts in the foreseeable future, I'm going to try more quick thoughts or updates which will also compensate for me not posting on Facebook. Today, we are flying out to Louisiana to pick up the truck we bought in December that is finally finished and … Continue reading Content Change
I'm slowly beginning to wonder if I actually exist if I'm not active on Facebook. Existential crisis or emo drama queen... you tell me. haha Conversely, have I ever noticed if anyone on my friends list took a break from Facebook without announcing it? My sphere of influence has cut down to husband, parents, daughter-in-law, … Continue reading Existential Crisis
