So, Husband and I are all done with the actual moving part of the move…at least where it pertains to our physical selves. Our things won’t be here for another five days or so, so we’re functioning as minimalists at the moment. I’ve got the things I need (my laptop for working purposes, my computer for…er…uhm…computing purposes), and he’s got the things he needs (his XBox, his case of games, and our smallest TV). Then we’ve got the cat and dog, of course. That was a fun trip with the animals, let me tell you.
I’m still physically recovering from the speed-loading that we did a few days ago. Me carrying a giant, awkward desk that’s at the end of its rope down stairs? Well…let’s just say that it wasn’t very pretty. It was kind of embarrassing, actually – the entire moving process, with me carrying anything that weighed over two pounds or so. I think I might need to go to the gym and *cue music in my head* get ta workin on mah fitness.
I don’t think I’ll ever forgive myself for just typing that. Maybe nobody will get it and just think that I’m insane. That would probably be best. And it was a joke, mostly. I can just go shovel rocks or something, which sounds like WAY more fun (that’s just my opinion…to each their own).
No, but really, my body feels pretty shot at the moment. I’m having doubts as to whether my feet will ever recover and return to normalness. Normality. Oh. Apparently normality is a word. That’s nice to know.
I PROBABLY should not be blogging right now, given that my brain seems to be lacking its usual functionality. I knew that functionality was a word, but I’m not sure it’s entirely appropriate to have been used there. Maybe it was. Oh well. I’m sure anybody reading this will know what I meant if it wasn’t. This is generally the time that I’m most awake during the day (night), but my sleep schedule is still wonky. By wonky, I mean that I’ve been waking up in the *gasp* morning, and going to sleep right around now. Meaning…I’m tired. And my leg is asleep from this HORRENDOUS chair that I’m required to sit on to compute at the moment. I don’t know how my leg being asleep is relevant to the fact that I shouldn’t be typing anything right now, but………uhm………Yep.
Anyway. Things are strange here. Which is strange, me saying that, given that I’ve lived here most of my life (on and off). Easy how quickly and completely I can forget things. Things are much more simple, yet so much more complicated in some ways. I’ll blame my lack of remembering the latter of those to some sort of purposeful forgetfulness.
I am beyond physically exhausted. Even after a few days of coming here, I haven’t recovered. I’ve said that already, I know. The point is…I haven’t sat down for more than an hour at a time since I got here.
I’ve walked around, I’ve helped my mom and my mamaw cook, I’ve cut up strawberries for shortcakes and cobblers. I’ve picked some of those strawberries. I’ve shelled some peas (yuck to the eating). I’ve paced while talking on the phone. I’ve done more walking around. And then more walking. And then a little more.
My feet freaking HUUUURT.
But anyway, I’ve gotten so bored during all the spaces between. Apart from one bit of not-moving-in-between where I worked on a few technical errors in my book. I was expecting that to take me days upon days upon days. Nope. That was my thing to do – my thing to keep myself occupied. Now, I’ve got a whole lotta nothin’. Oh my god, I’m even typing that way now. I apologize. Which reminds me…I heard my accent coming back out at some point either today or yesterday. I didn’t lose it completely (it’s the way I talk), but I said something (don’t ask me what it was because I don’t have a clue) and it made my eye twitch. It’s always so much worse when I’m around my family. Why in the world am I even talking about this? Because I’m tired rambling, that’s why.
Back to boredom. I’m bored.
I could’ve typed this up yesterday, technically, since we set the computer up and all that. I’m going to be totally honest and say that I didn’t want to. I honestly don’t want to right now. This chair is so uncomfortable. SO. UNCOMFORTABLE. I was going to say that it’s almost as bad as sitting on a rock, but you know what? I would rather be sitting on a rock.
I have a bit more time left before heading off to bed (YAAAAAAAY for air mattresses……Did anyone hear the sarcasm? I hope so…)…so, when I’m done with this, I’m going to do as I said and do some looking around on here. I’ll probably have a million blogs to catch up on reading. That’s fine though. I can guarantee I won’t get done with that today. Probably not even tomorrow. But I WILL get it done. And it will give me something to do during the between times, when I have them. Also………..crap. Lost my little thought bubble there.
I’m antsy to get back to work. You have no idea. I’ll calm down whenever that happens.
I realize that I didn’t make any of the points I intended to make when I started writing this thing. Well, that’s wrong. I made a few of them, but not as well as I’d intended because I’m tired. No big deal.
I’ll give more updates about what’s going on with the book (where it’s at, or where it’s going) whenever things are a bit more set in stone. I’m trying to work out details at the moment. And now I’m thinking about Merlin (sword in the stone) and wishing I could watch season five. I’m whimpering a little on the inside right now. I love that show. You have no idea.
