Transitions and other random thoughts

We have internet, phone, and cable at our house woooohoooooo!

It took the cable guy ages and they didn't give us the right phone number (I guess when I said I want to transfer service they thought that meant establish a new account...grrrr). BUT the tech was here at the early end of the time range they gave us (can you believe that?) and he was super nice. As we'll get our old number back next week, and the DVR did in fact save all of my shows despite the move, all in all it was a fabulous experience and I'm again in love with Comcast. Sigh. Comcast...you played hard to get and can be quite the finicky lover, but in the end you're mine and I love you.EDITED: COMCAST I HATE YOU AND FUCK OFF!!! I'M LEAVING YOU FOREVER!!!

So now that I'm back online from home, I guess I'm going to have to up the quality of my posts for the rest of NaBloPoMo. No more excuses for lame-osity. Starting tomorrow.

Oh, wait, tomorrow we are having a garage sale at the old house...I can't believe the stuff with which I am parting. That chair in the above photo? I love it. I've had it for years. A couple of months ago I grabbed it and hauled it out to a road lined with gorgeous, mature olive trees and started shooting. I think I'm selling it tomorrow because there just isn't room in this house for it. I'm torn, but I think I'm letting it go. That's where we're at right now...selecting and purging and simplifying and starting afresh.

We're also having a dumpster delivered to the old house tomorrow. What we don't sell we're donating or chucking...or maybe taking to the new place if I feel that the universe is telling me to do.


  1. You'll get there! That is awesome that the DVR saved your shows. I don't know what we would do without ours.

  2. Where is that picture taken? I love all the trees and the chair in the middle of the road looks so interesting! I've moved about 3 times in the last 12 years. I hate moving, but glad to hear you're happy.

  3. I am in love with that chair. If I lived anywhere near you I would be out front of your house waiting to buy it.

    I can't believe that is in the let it go pile.

    Really, you need to keep that chair. Really. Yo mama would say so.

  5. Great picture! Hope the yard sale went well.

  6. that's gorgeous.

    i'm late, but i'm reading through all of November. I miss you so much! I have a cell now, and more time off. When's the best time/number to call?

    lots of love,
