What goes on as we move on

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 […]

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 […]

Baby steps forward

(Sidebar:  I started this post last night after a long day of packing and taping.  Je suis complètement fatiguée.) I was totally stressed out this morning.  The cost of moving clear across the ocean finally hit me.  Oh, it’s not just the money although it ain’t cheap to make such a move.  I’m leaving behind everything […]

It is an adventure

I am still queen of my domain but I admit my crown is slightly crooked.  It’s amazing what a few days can do to one’s momentum.  We were supposed to get the boxes and wrapping stuff from the moving company on Monday morning.  Instead, I received a call (very early) on Monday to say that […]

I am the Queen of Wrapping

If I’m not, if it’s only in my head, it will soon be a reality. Lucky for me, it seems as though I will be the only one to pack what remains in the apartment.  How could this be?  Why me alone?  What happened to D?  Ha, I laugh.  For each day that passes by […]

My own reality show

I think it’s just dawning on me how much work is in my future.  I’m not scared, at least, not entirely scared off.  It does, however, leave me a little breathless.  My mother and older brother stopped by last night and I went into the run-down of things to do and the time left in which […]

Following my bliss

D and I spent a wonderful weekend away from the city.  The weather was fantastic and so was the company.  We have friends who have a cottage 2 hours north east of Toronto.  The cottage is directly on a lake and we were lucky to have amazing weather to go with the beautiful scenery.  It […]
