Still no winter. There Was snow one day, but it melted the next and didn’t really affect much. It’s in the mid forties this week, and though the forecast said rain, it’s bright and sunny out right now. I don’t mind not having bad driving conditions, but I like having some nice snowy days.

Mirena this week. One defective device, and five attempts and I’m all set. They tell me that in three months I’ll be grateful. That’s the plan body, stick to it.

Finished watching Numb3rs. Good show. Got some reading in, almost done with The Ghost King. Started playing the free starter edition of WoW. It’s really restricted, but I get to see what happened to the world since Cataclysm hit. At least the lower level parts of the world.

Starting to plan our summer trips. And by starting, I mean acknowledging where and when we want to go. πŸ˜‰Β  I also sent in for a new passport yesterday. No idea when I’ll get to use it, but better now than when already planning a trip and needing it in a hurry.

Rich just got his tablet. I’m enjoying the netbook, using it next to the desktop a lot these days and wishing I had a multiple screen setup. Some day, when we have a house and more space. Ah, dreams. πŸ™‚

Valentine’s Weekend February 16, 2012

Party with friends and a new red dress. It was good to relax for a Saturday night. A nice birthday lunch for a friend on Sunday complete with Snickers Pie and singing. Rich and I had a late Valentine’s dinner at P.F. Changs and an even later movie to see Sherlock Holmes Game of Shadows. Good movie. Long. I only missed one plot movement for sleeping. Monday out for dinner with chosen family again. Valentine’s Day itself, being Tuesday, I spent at work and killing zombies and slavers at gaming.

I am watching a show called Numb3rs and between that and Big Bang Theory, I really miss math, science and college. And feel a push to do something more with my life. One project is in motion. Now I just need to set regular deadlines to keep it going. Then get back to my webdesign studying, with more reasonable deadlines, so I don’t get overwhelmed.

Still waiting on the federal tax refund deposit. Then it’s time to get my passport, and get one step closer to seeing K again. πŸ™‚

Packing a Library June 9, 2011

I finished step one of packing today – the books. It took 45 boxes this time. Some small, but still heavy, some a little too big, and very heavy. The DVDs, VHS and video games are almost all packed, too. Just a few stragglers left. The pewter is all packed, except for the thimble, stubbornly hiding in a tower crenelation. Office stuff and knickknacks are next on the list. I’ve got some really big boxes for bedroom and kitchen stuff, but have nearly run out of smaller boxes for “other” again. We’re probably going to get storage tubs in the next couple days for the stuff that’s going to go into the basement of the new place. That’ll free up some boxes if I repack into them a bit. Still working out the finalΒ  logistics of the day – trucks/vans, volunteers, getting the lease signed, and the keys in hand. I may have to ask someone to take my shift that morning. Need to find out when the leasing office opens. I know they have limited Showing hours on the weekend.

What else is new? I’m going to start working on a friend’s website next week. Officially, paid and everything. I’ve been waiting on this job for months. Must fix the mess the last person she hired made. Yes, I’ll link to it after it’s pretty and working properly.

Registering for BaCon tonight. Bacon and Gaming convention put together by friends. Should be a fun time. Haven’t actually gamed at a convention in years. Gotta get back to WarpCon some day, too. Hmm, passports. Really gotta get those soon.

Much to do. πŸ™‚
