This has been an exciting day so far! Ann got up at 6AM to get ready for work and I attempted to sleep a little more. I have been unable to get to sleep at nights out of anticipation of the move back to Chicago. Watching the old seasons of 30 Rock have kept me amused from the 10PM - 1AM slot of my days. I dozed off while Ann was getting ready and one of the devious cats knocked over a folding table we had leaned up against a wall. The noise of that woke me up and I felt I jumped a foot off the ground in the horizontal position. I peeked outside and saw a beautiful, fresh 2" of powder and summarily found a flat tire on Wilson (our Saturn car). Grr.... The snow was no longer beautiful as I have to put the spare tire on and at some point navigate the icy, snowy roads to the tire shop.
Working on the second fill of my 20oz coffee mug and finally feeling motivated to begin accomplishing things. This is precisely why I am sitting on my butt writing this post! Today's list of things to do include:
Dealing with the flat
Getting 2 new tires
Posting more of our possessions to sell on Craigslist
Finish organizing and planning our finances for the month
Calling a few friends
The ever expanding list of things do to before we go has 46 items and there are 20 days till departure!
I may post another today with better news and hopefully something remotely exciting!
Currently listening to: The Flaming Lips - Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots
