Pod People

The pods from Colorado arrived, everything appears to be in good shape- a few scrapes and some paint rubbed off on furniture. Unloaded those babies in 4 hours- set up bed, good tv and started unpacking the kitchen. I hurt- stairs and boxes make for angry knees. I also have an elbow issue... there may be a painkiller in my future. Today I start unloading books and movies and my various collections. I am trying to resist the boxes of art supplies- once I start opening those- I'll start a project or two and the day will disappear. I'm scoring free/cheap furniture off of craigslist- i think I still need a dresser and a bookcase and a nightstand. oh- and plants!! I need plants.

Well- off to the beach for a walk- it's almost low tide and that's when I likes to walk the shores :)


The drama continues....

Saturday, September 6th- Wake up in parking lot of Ft Collins Walmart after a very uncomfortable night- mostly due to stress related asthma attack(s). Try starting the rv and getting a move on. It starts okay and after warming the engine for a bit- we take off. We make it to the intersection in the parking lot and it dies. Won't start... Push the rv and tow dolley (or is it dolly??) back about 30 feet into a space. Had to remove the car- which, due to the angle fell off the dolley and took off part of the front bumper.Call my daddy up in WY and he drives down to help us. Turns out the mechanic had hooked the back-up gas tank to the main/only fuel filter(!)- so we fixed that little problem and got a new gas cap that sorta fit. We also had to get a new tire- odd size of course- $115.00!! We hooked the car and dolley to my dad's truck and took off for WY. made it around 7pm. I have never been so happy to be at my parents house. D slept in the RV with the cats to help them adjust- that and he hates the guest bed at my parents house- it makes his back angry.

Forgot to mention that the dash lights went out on Friday night and the ALT light began glowing an ominous red color....


Daily Tarot

Your Daily Tarot

Today's Card- The Six of Swords card suggests that my power today lies in transition. I have what I need and am willing to trust the process order to move on, seek refuge or new opportunity. I'm not willing to remain where my perceptions are invalidated by being vulnerable I must rely on guidance to move in a new direction or trust that I can make it or be led to security and new hope. 'Wherever you go, there you are.' I am empowered by perseverance and my virtue is survival.


Last Two Tarots

Eerie and accurate:

Your Daily Tarot

Today's Card- The Eight of Chalices card suggests that my power today lies in space. I am true to myself and will only regret the chances I don't take to seek or follow my hearts desire. I turn away from or make a clean sweep of that which does not honor or sustain my passion and love, and in this, I am not afraid to be alone. I am empowered to move forward or make space and my gift is letting go.

Your Daily Tarot

Today's Card-The Five of Chalices card suggests that my power today lies in a crossroads. I am not alone. I intend to let go of despair or nostalgia and I choose to make peace with loss or express mourning in order to move forward. I release the rut of regret and the fear of tomorrow to make way for forgiveness, pleasure, beauty, and hope. I am empowered by my conscience and my gift is forgiveness.


Making a to-do list makes my brain freeze up.

I may pack a few more boxes this afternoon.
I have E-bay and Etsy stuff to pack for tomorrow's post office trip.


The End is Nigh

Well- the countdown has begun...
One week from today is the big pack the pods day. We leave on the 3rd...
It has been over 12 years since I have had a major move- and even then- it was just from Casper to Denver- a 4 hours jaunt. Nothing as major as this move to Seattle.

Friday, I went out to Disintegration for the first time in a long time. It felt odd...there I was at a very familiar place but without too many familiar people. I knew 2-3 and recognized less than 10...
It was nice to see paisli and to meet beerkitty
Made me wish I were more social and friendly. It took me back to the days when I would go out and know 90% of the people. It made me nostalgic for the silly crushes and flirtations that I use to have- Paul, JW, etc...
I wish I had been more assertive... *sigh*

Saturday- there was the going away drinks at Double Daughters- which is one of the places I will miss- I feel really comfortable there. Thanks to everyone who came out! It was fun to watch my work friends and my life friends interact. I drank way too much!

Sunday- my last day at work- except for a presentation at the Taste of Colorado on Monday. I tried to just treat it like any other day- but the hugs lead to tears way too often. I'm a cryer. Around 3- I hid in the back to clean up my files and desk. Ryan- my team leader- came in around 3:30- we hugged, we cried and I snuck out the back....

Expect lots of posts and brain dumps this week. I'm at home- packing and sorting. I have so much stuff in my head....
