Another move.

We moved two weeks ago. I just finished unpacking the very last box, just now.

I hate moving. There was a time when I enjoyed putting the new place together, but not anymore. Somehow, this place turned out way better than I expected or put the effort into. I just got lucky. However, there is not one square inch of unused space in the cabinets, the closets, the cupboards, or any other C word that means "stuff your shit in here". This will be a subject for a future blog post, a real rant and tantrum I am working up to.  :)

The physical effort nearly killed me, the pain is up near 13 1/2 on a scale of 1 - 10.I have used more drugs than I am supposed to, so that always leaves me short at the end of the 30 day supply. Either way I suffer, sometimes it's just worth it to do it this way. Ideally, my pain meds would work out just right, the way they are prescribed and are supposed to. But sometimes my pain is so bad, so intense, that suicide sounds like a good idea. I try to steer away from that kind of intensity.

This move was a good idea. Mark and I have not been happy the past year and a half, the last move that I insisted on was the bad idea. So, we are back where we were in 2008. The same building, two floors up, almost the same apartment.This is the place that everyone thought was such high class, such high dollar rent. Yes, it is. But it is still less that the last place, and there - in the suburbs, there was no shopping on the grounds, no restaurants, no bars. Here, at least I can watch other people have fun. There is real life outside my four walls, even if there is no life inside them.

And so that is all. My carpel tunnel left hand is completely numb now, and my carpel tunnel right hand is not as bad but still acting up. I shall "talk" to you all later.

Happy Weekend.  :)  Love and hugs.

My Mom closed on the "House sale from hell" on Wednesday. It will eventually be their retirement home when the market bounces back a bit and they can sell the house they are in. It was a short sale and for now it needs to be emptied, gutted and remodeled to code and spruced up a bit to rent out. These people left EVERYTHING in this house.

As we left today, I thought how sad it was that their entire life was now in the dumpster. How sad it must have been to live that life that it was not worth salvaging.

I hope your move makes you happy. Sometimes a few extra dollars makes a world of difference for your soul.

Moving is hell for folks with lots of strength and energy, I cannot imagine you doing it, but as is par for Jamie, you got it done. It sounds like you were much happier in that spot and felt more involved with life, so that's a definite plus. I'm glad you've got it unpacked and put together and now you can collapse and smile at the results. I wish you better times there. I'm sure the furkids are loving new spaces to explore and claim as their own. HUGS

It is good that you have activity around you. It is nice to see people having fun even if you aren't. It reminds you that there is life out there. Enjoy your new/old place.

I am on pain meds, too. but, I'm just the opposite. I dole out my pain meds sparingly in the beginning, always afraid that they won't last and then I end up with a surplus at the end of the month. I still fill the scrip, though. I'm not an idiot! My plan is to have enough stored that I can actually take more pills when I need them. And some days, as you know, are sooo soooo much harder than others.

The other day, while I was at work, my cousin stole my
iphone and tested to see if it can survive a twenty five foot drop, just
so she can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now destroyed and she has 83 views.
I know this is totally off topic but I had to share it with someone!
