If at first you DO succeed, try not to look astonished!

This happened a lot faster than I thought it would. The lady didn't want me to worry all weekend because I told her we were heading down to Florida on tues. At 5:45 this afternoon I got a call from the apartment lady. WE GOT THE PLACE!! So that takes a lot off of my mind. We wont have to worry about driving there and not having a place to unload now. I called the electric company and it will be $170 deposit!!!! I don't know...maybe it is just me...I have never done this before but 170 bucks sounds like a lot. The gas company (same company but different number to call) was closed so I will have to call back on tues. I have to pay the electric company by tues night wed morning.

It's ok because we have a home!

downfall-I looked up the sex offenders site and there is one sex offender just down the road from me. But I don't I should be worried I am of legal age. The creepy thing about him is that he is smiling...yes I said his online That is just a little screwed up.

Anyways...If anyone wants my new address give me your address, email or snail mail, and I will send it out as soon as I get the chance.

My house?

After almost a week of not hearing from the apartment people I called them today. After they check our credit we have a house. She already gave me an address....BUT the credit check has to go through first. *gasp* I am trying not to get my hopes up too high.

This is one of the few places that boy and I have both agreed on with out to much persuasion. It is a complex (55 acres) of duplex. We are both liking that a lot better than regular apartments. We will also have that backyard and two bedrooms.

Anyways here is a pic of my might be new pad. Yes I used google map. It rocks!!!
I'll have trees!!!

I should hear back from her either today or tues/wed. This is really cutting it close. On tues we get the penske and pack it up. Hopefully we will also leave on tues. If not we will be leaving not to late after that.

State Laws of Florida

These are some of the state laws I have found for my new state.....I am scared
Things to keep in mind while you are reading this is that if someone did not do these things it wouldn't be a law.

  • Women may be fined for falling asleep under a hair dryer, as can the salon owner. (Well maybe they don't want your hair to burn?)
  • A special law prohibits unmarried women from parachuting on Sunday or she shall risk arrest, fine, and/or jailing. (good thing I am afraid of heights)
  • If an elephant is left tied to a parking meter, the parking fee has to be paid just as it would for a vehicle. (Always bring my purse when I ride my elephant into town)
  • It is illegal to sing in a public place while attired in a swimsuit. (Reminder to self always bring a change of clothes in case I feel the need to break out into song)
  • Men may not be seen publicly in any kind of strapless gown. (Shame...I have always liked to see a man all dressed up. I guess I will have to make sure boy has a strapped gown to wear out)
  • Having sexual relations with a porcupine is illegal. (not to mention it might hurt....make sure you pet him the correct way)
  • It is illegal to skateboard without a license.
  • When having sex, only the missionary position is legal. (I would really like to know how they will monitor that)
  • Topless walking within a 150 foot zone between the beach and the street is prohibited
  • It is illegal to jog with your eyes closed.
  • It unlawful for you to put livestock on a school bus.

Ok I am going to try and get some sleep now

Ann Landers said it first.. not me.. but I do agree


Are geologists "different"? Spouses have stories...

Dear Ann Landers: This letter, my first ever to a columnist, was sparked by your column about the geologist’s wife who asked, "Are all geologists the very embodiment of all the virtues and qualities that are universally admired in humankind? Have they, alone, of all the professions, achieved a state of grace far beyond that ever speculated by history’s most hopeful philosophers and theologians?" The answer is "ABSOLUTELY!"
My father was a geologist. My three brothers and four uncles are geologists. Geologists ARE a different breed. (Here comes the important part) They are wise, often strikingly handsome, kind to small children and animals, sensitive to the subtleties of everything around them, and when it comes to relationships, well, Mom, my three sisters-in-law, and my four aunts seemed to always have a serene, deeply satisfied look of complete contentment. If only I could have hitched up with one, too.
A Jealous and Bitterly Resentful Wife of an Engineer

Dear Jealous: I've been swamped with letters from lucky wives, daughters, husbands, mothers and sisters of geologists. They've given me a real education, and made me feel a little jealous, too. Read on:

Portland: Geologists ARE different. And I say "Vive la difference!" I thought maybe I was the luckiest woman ever to have been born but I have found that other geologist's wives have similar experiences. My geologist husband has more sensitivity and consideration than ten "normal" men.
He’s absolutely wonderful with our children. After he puts is his usual twelve hour day at the office, he rushes home to be with the kids so I can spend a few hours of quiet time alone. During this time, he teaches the children cheerful songs while he prepares a delicious meal, balances the checkbook, and catches up on his letters to a group of shut-ins he has “adopted.” After dinner and the dishes, he helps the kids with their homework. Once the kids are in bed, he hurries to a downtown rec centere, where he coaches an inner-city youth basketball team. He gets back around 2 a.m., treats me like a young bride on her honeymoon (if you catch my drift), and after four hours of sleep, starts his day again, selflessly making life safe, loving and meaningful for others. I am so lucky to have this man in my life!

Denver: Ann, the best piece of advice you could pass along to your readers is this: If you can’t be one yourself, do whatever it takes to associate with as many geologists as you can. My life has been so rich, so meaningful, since I divorced the egghead engineer I was married to for twelve years. If I weren’t so ecstatic in all my waking hours, I would be in despair over all that wasted time. But in retrospect, I would have traded fifty years with “Mr. Pocket-Protector” for just a few weeks of the blissful existence I have with my big loveable rockhound. He has shown me all the richness that life holds. I spend hours just basking in the warmth of his vast knowledge of life, the universe, and everything. He has so much beauty and understanding. And he’s always ready to share that gift. He’s able to explain the most incredibly complex concepts in a way that helps you understand, and makes you feel just plain good all over. And how can anyone be so perfect, yet so warm and sensitive to the needs of others? Think of the world we would have if everyone were a geologist!

Ok we all know I used to go downtown oh so often back in the day. Since I have slowed down I think I have become allergic to the smoke. Well last night I went out for the LAST pizza night I will have in Clemson. That was sad. I am going to miss Clemson. I have had a lot of good times here with my girls. I got to see Hoopie in a bar legal last night. That was a sight. Jess and I made it an early night and I was ok with that planning on coming back and doing some packing. Instead I got home and talked to boy for a while. Then it started to happen. Couldn't breathe. I finally got to bed around 5 or 6 in the morning. Needless to say, I slept all day then did a few errands then took a long nap. It is 10 pm and I'm looking around saying damn I have to rearrange EVERYTHING so a realtor can some in tomorrow. If anyone wants to come over and help you know where I am :)

Any suggestions about what music I should download for my long car drive?

Cats and Dogs

Well today was umm an interesting day I guess I could say. I took Charlie Cat up to boys house to meet dog. Charlie did the normal hiss and swipe from inside his carrier. However, towards the end of the night I was holding kitty and dog came up to me and there was NO hissing!!! I am a little shocked. This will take a while for them to get used to each other. I just hope that no one or thing gets hurt in the process.

Tomorrow I need to:
  • Get money orders from the bank
  • Mail apartment applications and money orders
  • Close my savings account and transfer the money to checking
  • Pack more boxes
  • Finish laundry
  • Give Jess back a lot of her clothes and shoes and chocolate chips because I want going away cookies!!!
  • and umm I'm sure that there are a lot of other things I just cant think of right now

I do like flowers!

So I have around 8 days left in South Carolina. I say around 8 because Boy and I might move down a little bit sooner. Not so sure though. He now officially isn't working at his old job. He needs to have a few days off to get things together, say good bye to his friends and father, and to South Carolina. I think he might be excited. In the last 5 minutes he has imed me 3 times reminding me that we are moving to FL. This isn't a new thing. I am just going to take it that he is extremely excited.

Last night, instead of packing, I started making a sweater, the Posy Panel "Crew". I WAS packing when I came across a magizine I bought in 2004 and it had this cute sweater in it. I thought you know what I have a lot of this freakin maroon yarn left over. I want to try out this pattern before I go buy some nice yarn and make it for me. Then I can give someone this sweater as a present because I know how cool it is going to be. So I started it I have half the back done (I couldn't sleep last night because I got ate up by bugs the other day) so far it is looking good. Now who is going to be the poor sap that gets it. Well if it turns out good then either my sis, lat or jess. If it is crappy with one arm a foot longer then the other then I think Whore should get it. Well it WOULD fit in with the rest of her clothing.

Ok off to pack more. Then to wally world to get something for these damn bug bites on my feet!!!

10, 9, 8....

Well I have ten days left in South Carolina. I have been packing like crazy. My sister came out here for a few days to help go through my moms stuff and we did just that. As well as pack up a lot of crap. The entire kitchen, front room, and my stuff upstairs. All I have left is EVERYTHING downstairs and a few odds and ends I noticed we forgot about. That is ok I can do it providing I have enough boxes. I think I might go dumpster diving for boxes tonight/tomorrow. Any suggestions where to go?

"Most" of my clothes are packed right now. About half of what was hanging in the closet and a few drawers. I am finishing up some laundry so I can pack that.
