three more weeks!

my favorite neighborhood tag

Hello. I have many things to share so this may turn into something of a ramble. First, yes, I have my computer back! Yea! I actually got it back on Saturday which was something of a surprise as I thought it wouldn't be back until later this week. It was only gone for three days, but boy, it was rough! So happy to have the little hum in my office back. We're running at half capacity right now because one of my memory modules was bad, but hey, that we're running at all is awesome.

Second, the photo above is from a week or so ago. I see this tag in the mornings when I run and I love it. Probably because I love birds. I finally went for a walk with my camera so I could get a picture of it. My Lomo LC-A went out with me on the walk as well, but sadly, the roll of film that I took didn't turn out. Actually, it never even was exposed as it wasn't threaded properly. This is the second time it's happened with the Lomo and it sucks. It used to be fine so I don't know if the teeth are messed up or if it is just me. At any rate, I shall never see the other photos that I took on this walk.

And now here we are with three weeks left until we head west to New Mexico! Part of me can't even wrap my head around the fact that we are leaving so soon and part of me is super excited. I've been packing since 11 o'clock this morning and I am tuckered out. We have four floors, basement to attic and so I have been doing a lot of running up and down the stairs. I've already packed a good deal of stuff and so today's packing was frustrating. I have odds and ends that should have gone with other stuff but got overlooked. There is only so much more I can pack at this point as we still need our kitchen stuff and what not. So I guess it is okay to take a breather. But we might go to New York next week so I am trying to stay on top of packing so I am not super stressed in the end. I think it'll be okay.

My bigger worry is the garage sale. We had planned to have it this past weekend, but with the weather taking a turn for the cold, we decided to postpone it. Now we are set on doing it this Sunday, but the weather forecast still isn't great. We don't really have anymore weekends to do it so it has to be done. I think it is going to be more work than all the other packing I have done! I have a mound of stuff in the basement that I need to lug out to the garage and organize in some way. It's going to be a busy week.

I didn't work today, but I do work half days the rest of the week. Initially I was stressed about this turn of events, but at this point, I don't mind. I really like my job and the folks at my company. I'm going to miss the place a lot. It's been a good job for me. But this definitely will be my last week of work!!

We went bowling last Thursday with Blood and Chill and it was so much fun! Chill took some pics with my camera and caught me dropping my bowling ball:

me, dropping my bowling ball

I am not the best bowler, but man, it is so much fun. We were there on 80's night and listening to all the new wave made me so happy. The beer didn't hurt either. It was a great night. I am going to miss those ladies a lot.

Okay, enough with my rambling...I know I am not making a whole lot of sense, but you know what, it's probably going to be this way from here on out. I have a lot on my mind and I'm not writing everyday so when I do it all comes out at once.

A happy week to you all! I'll try to check in tomorrow with some flickr favs.
