What we need here is closure

The sale of my condo closed today at 3:15 pm.  This is cause for much celebration and if we had a bottle of champagne handy we would pop the cork and toast our future. The champagne will come.  Our celebration will take place on the weekend with les parents (D’s parents).  They are over the […]

Paris, here I come!

Yesterday proved to be a long day.  This was completely unexpected.  The morning started well and the movers were on time.  By 2 pm yesterday everything had been loaded on the truck.  I spent most of the time sitting around or updating boxes.  I can tell you that it was certainly not an exciting task. […]

It’s moving day

The day is finally here. I’m sitting at our former dining table — the sofa is wrapped like a huge Christmas present — and I have nothing to do.  Literally.  Nothing.  Okay, I could clean the bathrooms while I wait for the movers but I seriously do not have the energy for it.  Just the […]

Have tape gun — will travel

I am one with my tape gun. Although the tv show Have Gun — Will Travel was before my time, I am familiar with the title.  At some point last night/this morning, as I was wielding my super-duper tape gun, the title went through my mind.  Of course I changed the title to suit my purpose […]

Dreaming of Paris

One word:  exhaustion.  My entire body is exhausted and my brain hurts. For some crazy reason I felt that it was is wise to have everything completed by Sunday (April 25th).  I know I will make this deadline but I think I’ll need a vacation after everything is said and done.  And a drink. Right […]

Looking back and looking forward

What a day! Part of me is extremely happy and satisfied with all that I’ve done over the past few days.  Most of the packing is done and I’m sure everything will be ready by move out day.  The other part of me is starting to get a little sad actually.  I took down all […]

This way to progress

Success is mine!  I’m happy to say that the kitchen was packed last night.  Until you start packing your kitchen stuff you never really know how much stuff there is.  Pots, pans, flatware, tableware…everything was put into boxes yesterday and packed away. I had already packed away the non-perishable food that was in the pantry […]

Saturday is market day

D is a morning person.  He regularly wakes up between 6 and 6:30 am every morning.  Without fail.  It would take an extremely late night to put him off his schedule and even then he’ll wake up at 7:30 am.  Me?  No such thing.  I’m a night owl but, since being with D, I’ve started […]

T-minus 11

Yes, eleven days! I am a little psyched and a little worried.  Thank goodness my mom will be here tomorrow to help me pack.  I had to change my packing plans too.  I decided to work on the kitchen and get all the smaller items out of the way.  I figure that as I have […]

Jamaican-French Connection

I went to bed really late last night.  It was already morning, actually, when I went to bed.  When D travels I usually wait up until I receive a text message from him saying that he’s landed safely.  That’s all fine and good when he travels to Houston or Chicago.  The transatlantic flights, however, have […]
