gritty.

Sorry I was a bit peckish yesterday. By mid-afternoon I realized what's been eating Mama Milton.

It's this move that is not moving.

All of my 'I'm coping just fine' fluttered away and I was left with a closet full of summer and a storage unit full of fall. The sun has been out and it feels like summer, but the dark shadows in the morning remind me the rains will return.

I've got to get to living here. Make decisions. And keep my cell phone on me so I can show my house anytime between 9 and 8.

There's the rub, the dichotomy. Saying it aloud seems to help.

(And this opening to True Blood? It helps too.)

"Uncertainty can be crippling to the soul."

Not being able to take the next step in life is so frustrating. Finding a way to keep on living is tricky but necessary for maintaining sanity I think. ~hugs~

Deciding to move is hard enough without getting stalled in the neverland of if/when you're in. I don't blame you for feeling less than happy with that! I think you are handling it quite gracefully.

Are you still hoping to move this school year? Or have you put it off to next summer? Would making a decision like that make it easier?

Hope it all gets easier soon.

Please tell me that the True Blood opening credits made their way to this post?

Flux sucks.

We absolutely cannot get HBO. Oh, the shows we miss!
Moving sucks, which is why we're going to stay here until the roof caves in. AWESOME.

I'll be in your position in a few short months. And no doubt about it, moving sucks a**.

I say embrace the crabby. But I'm sweet like that. :)

My oh my... we do not have HBO, but can you say "totally frickin downloadable"? I saw the commercial for True Blood for the very first time just yesterday. And I'm so very excited...
