Life changes...again

Well, it's finally here, despite my best efforts to avert it...moving day for BigSis :-(  Tomorrow morning I will jump (ok, maybe more like crawl) out of bed at o'dark the 20 or so miles to BigSis' apartment....she will then take me to the Budget Truck Rental store where I will dish out big bucks to rent a truck for a move I don't even want to happen...I'm not very smart!

As the friendly weather man is calling for rain and thunderstorms tomorrow...seems kind of fitting for my state of should be a beautiful drive of approximately 5 or 5 1/2 hours.  Upon arrival in Virginia, I will then be required to haul my tired, old, fat ass out of the truck and proceed to unload it....oh, the joys of parenthood :-)  I haven't asked but I'm certain there will be something like four flights of stairs involved!

I'll attempt to get BigSis all set up and organized and then I'll jump back into the truck Thursday morning for another rain filled drive home...all alone...without my first born.

Despite the fact that I'll miss her terribly and I'm not convinced (nor do I need to be) that this is the best move for her, I hope with all my heart that it's everything she is hoping it to be.

I have always prided myself on my adaptability to change and my ability to transition to new situations...but I absolutely do not like my girls being adults!!!  Oh well, maybe it's time to start checking into rest homes :-)

I hope everyone is doing well and I wish everyone a great Easter holiday.

Hello boys and girls

How's everyone doing this evening?  Great, I hope.  I just stopped in to say a quick hello and to let y'all know that I haven't forgotten you...or hit the lottery...or found Ms. Right (not even Ms. She'll Do)...or anything else that is a reasonable excuse for not blogging.

The truth is much simpler...I haven't been feeling at all inspired lately.  Work pretty much is an exercise in which I count the number of my brain cells that die from boredom each day....and it really pisses me off that I have co-workers that are actually PASSIONATE about this crap....what the hell am I missing?

We're getting very close (two weeks) to BigSis moving....not happy at all about it but my vote was over ruled.  I will be renting the Uhaul, loading, driving 5 hours, unloading....all while wishing she wasn't going...oh well, life is a pain in the ass....what are ya gonna do?

Jumble Mash has been wrapped up with work, BF and having Bowen's balls cut off....I don't care what anyone says...he looked sad after it was done :-(  I can't imagine how over protective she'll be as a'd think Bowen was her child the way she babies him!  For example, I volunteered (cause I'm good like that) to babysit Bowen while her and BF go to Niagara Falls....she turned down my offer because I wouldn't agree to letting Bowen sleep in my bedroom!

LilSis turned 21 on Monday...yes, that makes me so old I fart dust!  Took her, BigSis and BigBird (LilSis' BF) out to dinner...had a nice evening and LilSis got the largest caramel sundae I've ever kidding, it had to be a foot tall and must have been a half gallon of ice cream!!!

The weather has finally warmed up just enough that I can spend a little time in the wood shop.  I built JM a bookshelf that we designed together...she helped paint it....I think she got more paint on her and the floor than she did on the shelf...but it was fun.  I actually delivered it in the snow last Saturday...she seems to like it.

I also built BigSis a coffee table for her new place.  I put the second coat of varnish on it this evening and will finish up over the weekend and I made LilSis a wooden sign with her new dogs name engraved in it...she wants to mount it on Athena's crate.

Time for bed...hope all is well with everyone.
