Moving Chronicles: Drowning in boxes

      1 Comment on Moving Chronicles: Drowning in boxes

Why do I have all of this stuff? Remember when my apartment was empty? I’m sure Paul does and wonders when in the hell it’s ever going to be clutter free again. I swear I’m having a mini-panic attack over the amount of crap piling up everywhere. I’m tempted to just chuck it all. But then I actually open a… Read more »

Inappropriate Halloween Costumes: All new wrongness & Star Wars

Why is it that costumes for females are all pretty much the same? I mean for little girls and young teens they are all cutesy. For grown women they are almost all sexy.

Today was insane. Moving is awful. Well, awfully stressful. It’s even more so when your stuff is 1,500 miles away and you are trying to coordinate its move. Luckily, I have been blessed with wonderful parents. I had arranged for the movers to come on Wednesday. All of the paperwork was complete.  We were just waiting for a time to… Read more »

Relationship Firsts: An anniversary

      No Comments on Relationship Firsts: An anniversary

For the first time in my life, I am celebrating a dating anniversary. No, this isn’t one of those, “We’ve been together for a month, so let’s Facebook it to death, schmoopie” things. One year ago on August 31st, I met the man of my dreams. I can still remember seeing him come down the escalator at the airport. I… Read more »
