Did you ever have one of THOSE days?

Yesterday BLEW CHUNKS.  I'm just not willing to rehash it all, so here's the highlights.

Packed.  Cough came back with a vengeance.  Went to pick up boxes.  Had wreck. (Hung UP on seegrim.  Sorry. )  Colin's bumper is mushed.  Came home.  Nolan snarked. SIL took kids.  Car wouldn't start because children turned on interior light.  Couldn't teach class.   Friend came to jump car off.  Had dinner with in laws.

Termite treatment cost $1200.  TWELVE HUNDRED DOLLARS.  For a house that as of 1:00 today, we no longer own.

Also, termite guy knocked something loose under the house, and the phones aren't working properly.  I'm pirating Internet from one of the neighbors.  *raises coffee mug* Thanks, pal, whoever you are.  No one can go under the house to fix it for a few days beacuase evidently the termite fumes will make you grow an extra head or something.  So I'm using my cell phone for all calls, which costs a bazillion dollars.

That was yesterday.  God willing today will be better.  And I'd post pics of the trip, but my USB cable for the camera isn't working properly.

Really?  Not working?  You kidding me?  

Nope.

And the move in date keeps ketting pushed back, and it's seriously pissing me off.  First it was Friday, then Sunday, Now it's Tuesday or Wednesday?  There are people moving in to this house on next Thursday do it would be freaking HELPFUL if our new house were done by then.

By the way, the new house?  It's very pretty.  And the landscaping is beautiful.  And I'm grateful.  I feel like Cinderella, like this house can't possibly be mine.  If, that is, I ever get to PUT MY STUFF IN IT.

SIL is coming to help me pack.  I'll try not to cough up a lung into the box of table linens.

And P.S.  I miss Caliga.  Miss it terribly.  Having serious withdrawals.  Got giddy over OWLS yesterday.  One more week, one more week, one more week.  Right?  i can do a week standing on my head.

Not that I'd want to.
