DH just called me to say he got a deer. Hallelujah! No more early mornings to see him off with his hot chocolate. I don't want the meat, but I'm tired of the whole hunting thing!

I'm in a total sh!t storm. No movers for tomorrow maybe. They are not returning my call and they insisted I pay them upfront.

EDIT: THEY ARE COMING!!!!!!! Who waits until 5 pm to call to confirm?!?!?!?!? Scare the crap out of me! I am just so thankful they are coming


PS- Go me lamb kabobs for dinner - last night here and there is an authentic place Greek that is amazing. Got to go.

Tomorrow will be busy- will be posting late- after it all - check back in later for my post/updates

Hey peeps!

Darn Jaz when you said you paid them upfront and then hadn't heard from them I was freaking out for you! So glad you did hear!

I love lamb kabobs! Yum! Good luck tomorrow! I'll be thinking of you and I hope you are able to get some degree of sleep tonight!

Lori- Yay for Dh and having bagged a deer!

Oh Trig, I am so so sorry to hear about Bolt. We have been through the loss of three dogs with our kids. It is hard on them, yes, but also that part of the life cycle which you are all so familiar with, being on a farm. Hopefully Bolt will be okay through the holidays but if not, ultimately she and you all will be fine. I hope this isn't coming off as cold, Lord knows I know about the sadness. I just mean, hopefully he will but if not, Nicole will be okay. She loves him and won't want him to suffer. You know? Anyway.. I probably just totally messed up what I was trying to say, but BIG HUGS.



It has been a good day here today. I got nearly all the gifts wrapped that I had brought to wrap while here, plus two good dog walks, some reading etc. Just an all around good day. I also took my neighbor to pick up her car from the mechanic, and it was nice to do something nice for someone else.

Food etc all good. One month in and going strong. Feeling good, no idea what I weigh, don't care. Just doing the thing, one day at a time.

My back is still tight but improving. Hopefully fully resolved in the next couple of days.

Jazz, damn you had me on pins and needles LOL
great ya got your movers, big day tomorrow....take a deep breath, ya got this. Let us know later what goes down of course but hope all goes well.

Lori....bagged one! Bet your DH is happy about that. Hunters want that prize for all their work But like ya said, OVER now and it puts 'that insane hunting' saga away for another year.

Nicco....oh yea you said it fine I know how it is gonna have to happen and how it goes down and she will be fine. I just hate she has to be sad at Xmas time ya know. I actually thought about you and your kids and pets passing and thought, you had to deal with more emotions than I will have to But in the end it is life and we all live it for sure!!!


-----------------SO VET just called. Super duper bad bad bad. His value numbers from bloodwork are off the charts horrifying. She suggested we bring him in Monday and put him down.
OMG and kid is off with her friend at the mall. When she gets home I gotta explain this. Bolt went zombie real fast. Saw it coming but now it is 'a real deal' change in him.

Let ya know the crazy of it all once I chat up with kiddo....I don't even wanna have to do this ugh

first to post. up early as usual

so kiddo has to get 3 french assignments done for submit today deadline. I will make sure she does that work first and then sit her down and explain on Bolt. Probably take him in Tues since me and hubby have to go to DMV monday and gets those vehicles changed over. I already activated auto ins. on them etc. Of course will 'monitor' Bolt close, if he goes super bad in the next few days Monday might be an option ya know. We are playing it day by day. Pancreatic cancer. He got a toughie that this has to be final call for the lil' guy.

Still don't wanna tell kid but they are resilient. Just sad thru it all ya know.


ok my day is this and that. bleck

Morning- Moving day!

I was SO freking out when the movers did not return any of my calls until after 5 pm. I was thinking I was going to have to get a truck and load it up myself. I have a bad back and 3 herniated disks- it would not have been pretty.
THANK GOODNESS they finally called!

Trig- You know how I feel about your pup. I am heartbroken for you and the kiddo. I know you will get through it as we all do. But DAM it just does not get easier! HUGS- I am so sorry. But Like Nic said- we also do the right thing by our pets too when the need comes up. We don't want them to suffer.

Hiya Nic/ Lori-
-----------------------------------------------
Back after the move is over. I am coming back here. I have my computer, and small TV tray I use for my laptop. Are they called TV trays anymore?
I am also going to use my blow up bed for tonight and head out at first light tomorrow.

NO I DID NOT SLEEP. I got up to pee at 3:30 and could not get back to sleep with all this going down today. 2nd night in a row of this. Lori- I thought of you! This SUCKS! Not sleeping!

The lamb kabobs were awesome going in......... something on them though bothered me. I am such a simpler eater anymore.

Ok- back after this mess is cleared out!

Good Morning!

Trig......Biggest hugs A rough time for the little guy and all of you too. One of the top 10 "damn hard" things we go through in this human life.

Nic.....Hope your back is feeling better today. Takes time. How long are you staying in DE? Anything fun going on in the neighborhood this weekend?

Jaz....You have a big day ahead! Are you driving all the way there with the movers and then driving back? That's a lot of road time! Are your things being moved to a storage unit or to your new place? I don't remember if the place you've rented is furnished or not? Hope all goes smoothly.

---------

I got to stay in bed until 7AM....was awesome! It took me a bit to get back to sleep after letting Gabby out at 3:30. My mind was whirling about nothing. Sigh...

I'm happy to just be able to stay in today. It's chilly & wet outside. Since DH is not hunting, he will go get Betty situated this morning. Get her OJ & toast for breakfast, refresh her soda & water for the day and make sure she has what she needs. I've been doing it every day while he's been hunting. It's not a big deal, but some days I would rather not go out in the cold at 7:30AM, you know?

I'll get a workout in at some point and that's it for the day. I need to figure out what we're going to eat next week and get a plan in place. I need to start planning each day so I don't wake up every morning and wonder what in the he!! I'll make tonight! We eat simply, but I still have to make sure I have what I need. First world problems.

Have good days!

Hey Ladies!

Lori- I 100% get not wanting to go out every morning at 7:30. I would feel that way too!

Jaz- eagerly awaiting your re-check in but you may be too tired when it is all said and done. I don't even know how long the drive is! About five hours, maybe?

Trig- you already know my mind and heart are with you all. Poor sweet Bolt. We gave Sophie a nice steak dinner, maybe DD can help give him something super special. Huge hugs.



All is well here. Drove back to MD today and will be here until Tuesday or possibly Wednesday, then heading back for activities and things over there. I am so used to the drive now and kind of enjoy it. I line up a few podcasts, stop midway to use the bathroom and Bella has become a dream traveler in her little car seat. Just super easy.

Got here and unloaded a few things ( I did a lot of xmas wrapping while there) then took Bella for a walk. She has crashed hard now! DH is playing in a poker tourney but not doing very well so will likely not be continuing into tomorrow.

Ravens game is on tmrw and I will address Xmas cards during.

Leftover pot roast soup for dinner tonight. Just hanging out with some hot chai (no sweetener or anything added, just hot tea.)

Well- and wow what a day.

The movers were 2 hours late, then it started raining. Awesome.
IT is done and over with. I am happy though my storage unite is big enough with a tad extra space that we didn't have to SHOVE and push stuff in like the last time. I went up a space. ROUGH day though to say the least.

After 5 hours loading and driving to storage unit and unloading to the 2nd floor I am more than tire. This is my 2nd day of ZERO sleep. I feel like the walking dead.

I have internet, blow up bed, clothes for tomorrow, and my coffee pot ready to brew for tomorrow.

I have jammies on and will roll outta bed and put the last few items in the trunk and hit the road. I have the car 98% packed. Just what I am using tonight and in the morning. READY YO ROLL AGAIN!!!!!
Honestly this has happened so fast, and with all the hoops I have had to do it has been task filled days. On an emotional level I know I have not processed it all yet. It will hit me as I bounce into Charleston and wonder what I have gotten myself into.

lololol -

Tired ladies............ Personals when I recover just a bit. Tomorrow is a 6 hour travel day. No promises other than a hi I am here.

Trig- I am thinking about you and the kiddo and Bolt right now. Hoping for a gentle and easy transition for your little guy. He has been a great and good boy for you. You are honoring him by giving him dignity in his passing. HUGS and MORE hugs. We all want that dignity when our time goes ya know! Just wanted to let you know my thoughts are with you and the fam.

Time to chill and watch something on my laptop.

Thanks all about Bolt


Lori, same. I hate my early morning grocery shop. I set the car up on on high heat and hit my remote key to turn it on, toasty when I do get in it, but after that, I freeze that early making my runs. brrrr

I think you can plan up your food pretty good with an easy situation. I think you guys like us are eating a tad lighter and easier ya know. No big monster recipes Hey what about all that food delivery services? You thinking of buying some favs you guys liked and sticking in freezer....that would have ya covered

Nicco....doggie in car seat and a dream traveler. Oh yea!!
Your drive is 'just short enough' to be enjoyable...I love that!

So get the big ol' steak for your girl too When I put my QH down, Willy, I fed him a 10lb. bag of apples before. He was in apple slobber heaven and damn it is hard seeing that memory again... but in the end, we did them right on the way out is how I have to see it!

Where's my Xmas card? Huh? HAHA I stopped them long ago. Only card I would get each year was to the parents. After that no one got one LOL Fingers crossed for DH!

Jazz, girl I swear I just read a report from ya like, hmmm, long ago that same move, lol. All the crazy that accompanies it but you been there, done that. You will be ok for sure!!!

What day ya settin' out for your new digs?

-----------------told kiddo about doggie. OMG the tears. So we kept chatting thru the day on it and she is slowly accepting fate but damn ya know. We shall see how it all progresses.

cold. brrr. again, you know what I am gonna say. hate it
early spring come on

got steak and burger for today. we are just 'doing whatever' around here. kinda in that dead end funky type time going down. So today is what goes down does, move slow and whatever

be good all

Good Morning!

I didn't crawl out of bed until 8AM! As usual, I had been up around 3:30 with the furry alarm clock and then dove back under the blankets. It sure makes my fasting easier when I stay in bed through most of it! Weight staying stable...all good. I bought a gallon of PB ice cream and have been having a dish of that every day. I'm lucky the scale is staying in range! OY!

---------

Jaz.....Woke up thinking about you today. Hope you have a good trip to your new digs. Glad you have some time before the job starts, but I know you said you have certifications or something to work on? One at a time.

Trig...Glad you got the talk over with with DD. It takes a bit to come to terms with it, I'm sure.

Nic.....How is your back doing? Hope that has resolved itself by now.

---------

I plan on doing nothing today. DH will get leftover lasagna for dinner and I'll find something easy for me. Done and done.

Be well!

I"M HERE! 1.5 miles from Folly beach! OMG the location!
Work will be a 25-30 minute drive- over a bridge that overlooks the Marina- beautiful.

It was a 5.5 drive, after an hour finish loading the car. Then I got here was like hummmmn, there were tires, and trash and old rusty crap laying everywhere near the back door. No green space for the dog and I was like- OH HECK no!!!!!! Complete trailer trash.......I had the WRONG ADDRESS

So- the digs, spacious, LOCATION LOCATIONLOCATION. Whis it would be a bit lighter out for a bit longer so I could visit the beach! The kitchen could use a face lift, but very workable. All new super size TV's in the living room and both bedrooms. Good space for walking pooch. It is a large townhouse. They have put some money in it. I think the kitchen is the last thing to update. New washer and dryer coming Tue. Again LOCATION!

2 blocks down is a place I CAN'T wait to try. Martins BBQ- it looks amazing. Authentic BBQ- yes please. There is a Harris Teeter and Publix within a mile, Chick Fliet, Star Bucks and All the usual places including a PetSmart.

Sun going down- 5pm now. Need to finish unloading car and organize tonight. Yup- My moves are so the same. I am just going to copy and paste it for the next one! HAHAHAHAHAHAH

Thinking about you ladies, and how many moves I have included you on!!!!

You would be proud! After an hour of fussing around to get internet up and working, will a packed car and driving, I still went to the grocery and bought some hamburger and cooked. Bought eggs, butter, coconut milk, and a ribeye for tomorrow.

Priority for tomorrow- see the beach!

Personals tomorrow- sorry was a selfish post. I get a travel /move pass! HAHAHAH

Later! - Can't wait to tell you all about the island tomorrow!
