The "hard" part is done...

Now all that's left is the easy bit of moving and combining two apartments into one house. I'm tired and sore right now just from the small amount of moving that we've been able to do so far. A huge thanks to Derek, Squatchy, Jess, Karen and Kevin for all their help this past weekend.

Anyhow, I'm now a home owner. Eventually (I expect by the end of the month or so) I'll be able to return to being an "artist" for my site. Until then, mind the tumbleweeds. They have sticky fingers and a taste for expensive women and cheap wine.

My internet connection at my apartment decided to crap out some time yesterday. After 37 minutes on the phone with tech support this morning (I love now having a home phone that lets me know how long I've been talking) we were able to determine that something is wrong. Perhaps the modem has crapped out. I don't know. They don't know. Nobody knows. Is it going to be fixed? I don't know. They might know. I hope so.

Utilities are straightened out for the house, but I still have to call Qwest, inform Earthlink once I know if my phone number will be accompanying me on the move (and once I have internet again), arrange a truck for the 8th & 9th, get change of address forms for the post office, notify my bank, notify my credit card companies, and God knows what else. I'm sure there is more, but I'm just too tired to really think much beyond that. It's going to be a busy lunch.

Have a great week everyone! I will at least have something "old" up for this weeks Illustration Friday topic "run". Probably on Thursday.

Yes, so much to do. I like your idea of clones for moving. Brilliant! of course, no one knows what I'm talking about because no one else saw that email! :-)

moving sucks. It's the single most exhausting activity which one can engage in. Outside of mass genocide and soccer, of course.

Heather: Don't worry about it babe. Nobody else is reading. Except possibly for...

Derek: I agree. That also explains why I'm not a fan of soccer or mass genocide.
