So, first things first, I upgraded to an iPhone. I love it! My old phone's keyboard was starting to fail. I either had to push the key 5 times in order to get the letter to work or I'd press it once and get 3 of the same letter. The backspace and space bar didn't work well either. I send some pretty interesting texts. But now everything is ok. AND, I can take pictures of things for my blog on my phone and they will instantly show up on my laptop. Fantastic.
I've been continuing to pack like crazy. Finding lots of things to get rid of or donate. But now I'm in the rut where a lot of the stuff I still need to pack I need for the next week. This results in our house being a mess. Our landlord is trying to sell the house and I hope that no one wants to come see the house in the next week and a half.
I've also been watching the Olympic coverage on NBC, because we don't get any other channels, like its my job. I'm being incredibly lazy, but the Olympics only happens every 2 years.
We also got rid of my old car. I had a 1998 Chrysler Concorde with over 200,000 miles and a dead battery. It would have cost more to fix it than we would have gotten to sell it, so we decided to donate it. They came and picked it up on Thursday. In Kentucky, with my parents, I have a 2009 Chevy Cobalt waiting for me. We get to see how it handles the mountains of Tennessee on my drive to Atlanta.
And last, but not least, I have been crafting! Some of it more successful than others. I had my first attempt with spray adhesive. I ended up with my hands covered in it and being afraid to touch everything. Didn't help that I was home alone and afraid of turning on the water for fear of getting stuck to the faucet. I eventually got it all figured out and have not gotten stuck to any more household items.
And now, I present, my craft pictures!
I have decided to not use spray adhesive while home alone, so these binders may have to wait a bit.
Jim and I have begun to plan my farewell celebrations. On Friday we're meeting Alma friends at the Pub for dinner and drinks. The fried pickles at Bravehearts are to DIE for. On Saturday we're going to go visit Kim and Kyle (And their Corgi, Bambi) at their house in Livonia. Wednesday is Kim's birthday, so its a Birthday-Going Away party for the two of us.
