Quickie Post

Posted by on Sunday, 29 February, 2004

This is going to be real quick, cause it is indeed time for bed.

Got moved in fine. The movers R@WKED! Took a bit longer, but so worth the extra cash. Saved my back from complete destruction.

degopiccolo(Colleen) helped us on Friday and Saturday when we needed it most. Not just by moving “stuff” (which she did), but just by grounding us and helping us relax too. It really IS nice to abuse friendships at times 🙂

John and Mary also came by both nights and made us feel so unbelievable cool! They brought a nice housewarming gift of Firestone Merlot Reserve, and Firestone Ambassador. Dear god I can’t even imagine how good this wine is going to be! For the time being though, it is cellared in a temperature controlled environment to keep it at its peak.

John and Mary soooo make us feel special too. The fact that we have something nice to show off to them, and the fact that they have this pride in us is so warming and right. Hard to explain, but when I can see their complete understanding and happiness for us, it fills my heart. Truly, we are proud to have a house that we can invite people over to and entertain.

So, to recap the weekend: HOLY FUCK WOW!
We still don’t believe we own this place. But slowly we are making it ours. I lied before when I said I’d believe it when I had the keys. Thats no where near true. I think I will finally believe it when we start hanging our art once the furniture is all delivered and organized, etc. Then it will be ours.

Seriously, this place has got great juju. It is so unbelievably comfortable already and we really haven’t unpacked at all. Colleen was right. And it is too cool for words.

Moving time….

Bask in the glow that is the anxiety of last minute issues before the move. It commands you. It is your temporary master.

I will undoubtedly be punished by this cruel master for simply sitting here typing this out. Yes, he is that unforgiving. Every second I spend on something other than paying him full attention, I will be reprimanded for later….

It is so close that I must shut down the computer soon so I may disassemble the desk upon which it resides within a few minutes. The on to deconstruction of the bed and frame. Later, it will be a mad race to take all the small, breakable, and otherwise fragile items I do not wish the movers to even look at, less touch for fear of complete destruction.

My icon for this post is directed squarely at the address which we are leaving behind. By the time we had closed its purchase, we didn’t want it. By the time we moved in, I was ready to sell it. For the next six months, I was ready to give it away. A year and a half after that I had leached it for all it was worth. Both figuratively and literally. Any and all of the bad juju that this place carries is being left behind.

It truly feels like closing a door on a dark and ugly piece of our lives and starting fresh, even though we will only be moving two miles away. This sell has had its small issues, and the buy has had none at all. So much so, that I am still awaiting the other shoe to drop, even though we have closed and recorded and the place is officially ours.

So I raise a toast to new beginnings. To achieving that which I have sought after since leaving home 11 years ago. To finally having a place we are not ashamed of having our friends and family visit. To a smooth transaction. To happiness. To no longer feeling transient in our own home. And most importantly, to the relaxing rumble of our own jacuzzi!

Damn. This has taken more time than I expected…. the master will surely be angry and overly vengeful now.

AHA! I -knew- it!
