I was given crap yesterday for not having updated the blog lately, so Brie, here you go. However, I'd like to point out that since this started Alex has only written one post, so really everyone should be giving HIM crap.
The first reason we haven't been writing here is because our lives have been turned upside down a bit since my last post and life has gotten busy and complicated trying to be ready for the move this weekend. The second reason we haven't been writing here is because we lost the internet at our place the first week of January, so we haven't had ready access outside of work, which has been too busy to write.
Now that the excuses are over, it's January 27 (Happy 83rd birthday to my grandfather, by the way) and we move out of our townhouse in 3 days. It would be fine if we were even remotely close to being ready, but our place looks like a monsoon hit it, or as Alex & Brie have both stated, it looks like something on the show Hoarders. It is RIDICULOUS how much crap you can accumulate over 3 1/2 years. It's even more ridiculous how hard it is to part with some stuff...even though you might not have used it in those 3 1/2 years...even if it's junk you know you don't need. Alas, this week is crunch week and we're spending every waking hour that we're not at work packing up our belongings to go into storage for a month.
Also, in 4 days I will be living at my mother's house again. If that's not the most depressing thing you've ever heard, I don't know what is.
We leave next Friday, 2/5, to drive out to LA and find a place to live. I promise, this blog will get more exciting and active after that happens.
