i’m not doing a year-end retrospective

December 31st, 2009

because i don’t wanna, that’s why. start with January 2009 and read away, if you feel so inclined. I am now fighting 2 (two!) infections with 2 (two!) kinds of antibiotics because the little dose they slipped into my IV was not enough and the first round i took last weekend was not enough either. Drama queen over here, as always.

Ouchy Owie Wacky Mommy.

i will tell you that i’m excited that 2010 will be Year of the Tiger because I like tigers. Meow. Here, kitty, kitty. And that this year, finally, oh for the love of God will they ever just commit and do it, that we move to the west side. (The UrbanMamas — or as I prefer to call them, The Pioneers Who Saved the Ghetto — in unison, Oh thank God I hate that bitch.) (Honestly. Cannot believe that someone said “circle jerk” and they never pulled the comment. You kiss your babies with that mouth? hahahahaha.)

We’ll be closer to Steve’s work, we’ll get out of the asthma-fest that is North Portland and hell yeah, we won’t have to deal with the school b.s. anymore. Hell. Yes.

This will be the first time in 10 years that we have moved. That’s a lot of Legos, i’m just saying. Also, due to the fact that all four of us have too many hobbies (writing, music, gardening, art, for starters), we have a lot of junk.

So wish us luck on the whole packing thing. First up? The classroom guinea pig. We’re sending her a-packin’ next week, back to school.

thank you and good night. hope you have a grand, glorious, peaceful and healthy new year.

    Happy New Year to you, my dear. I will offer all the long distance moving support I can.

    My retrospective turned out to be surprisingly upbeat. 2009 turned out to be an okay year. Who knew?

    So, happy new year! Let’s kick 2010’s ass!

    I didn’t do one either. I meant to, and spent some time looking at old posts, but I ran out of time. I’m sure no one cares.
    Here’s to happy moving (oh sure, it could happen) and a speedy recovery and a fantastic 2010!! love you all!

    Buy me a ticket on a plane and I will help you pack. I know how hard it is after 10 years, with three kids, and you will need my help. Plus? I have never been there, so consider it a learning experience for me.

    Shit. Did I just offer to help you pack? I must be insane. The offer still stands. In fact, my New Year’s resolution is now this: Be insane, it’s who you are. Live with it, accept it.

    I feel better already.

    *I* could help you pack, I am an expert! Hot Tips:

    Give away some stuff. You will realise it’s not so bad, and give away more stuff. Really, it gets easier! Do this over time, starting NOW.

    Stand in front of bookcases and give away every single book that is easily re-purchased or borrowed. Keep the stuff that’s signed, really special or out of print. We have been here only a few months, and already we have PILES OF BOOKS again! Think what GOOD you are doing if you give away books! Yes, even kids’ books. I bet there is a needy library somewhere.

    What do you need new? Give away the old one.

    What can you live without? Give it away and live without it. If you find you need it again, get one then, but you will find that you need half the stuff you thought you did. If you pay to ship it all, it’s just clutter.

    Use Freecycle or Ebay.

    Keep the Legos. Life without Legos is not worth living!
