Remember Me?

I was thinking it had been forever since I'd posted, but I guess it was just Thursday...    Maybe not quite forever, but it's been over a week now!

I spent all of last week sick, which was a complete bummer and messed up my entire schedule for trying to get packed for my move.  What began as a normal allergy cold evolved into the cold from you-know-where and I ended up with an ear infection!  Ugh!  I haven't had one since I was probably in elementary school and I honestly can't remember the last time I had so much pain like that.  I'm one of those people that never goes to the doctor unless I'm really super desperate and I made a visit to my doc to get some meds for my ear.  I'm allergic to pretty much every med under the sun (part of why I don't usually bother going to the doctor), but I was able to get on one of the few antibiotics I'm not deathly allergic to and I'm feeling much better.  I'm still not at 100%, my ear is still stuffy, and I am still feeling more worn out than usual, but I'm greatly improved from my condition last week!

Now for my move!  The whole sickness thing really hurt my plans for getting packed early, so I've been running around the last few days trying to get things ready.  Since I'm downsizing to an apartment for a year or so, I'm putting a lot of my stuff into storage at my aunt's house since she has the extra space.  We actually teach at the same school and she lives not super far from there (not far when you consider my drive), so I can pop in or have her bring me things as needed.  I swear I've dropped more money on plastic bins and tubs in the last week than more people spent in 10 years, but I'm pretty well organized now!  In going through my basement I found about 3 or 4 boxes labeled "crap" (yes that's what they said), so my goal was to weed through those boxes and not have to resort to just throwing junk in boxes at the last minute.  (Seriously, it was some of the most random junk...  Expired coupons, makeup, college papers, birthday cards, cassette tapes, etc. all in one jumble.)  It feels good to have a lot of that junk more under control and hopefully I will be more motivated not to just shove things into drawers and boxes and think, "I'll take care of that later..."

I'm more or less moved into my new apartment now.  It's definitely going to be an adjustment going back to apartment living, but I think I'll like it just fine or a year or so.  I'm working on getting things unpacked today and then will go over to the old place tomorrow to work on cleaning.  I'm hoping to share a few pics within the next couple weeks.

So, you may or may not be hearing from me much in the next week or two, but I promise I'll be around more once things settle down!  I'm going to an ELL workshop put on by the state department of education on Monday and Tuesday of next week and hope that I'll have some things to share from that!

Happy Friday! :)

    1. Moving is such a hassle! I'm hoping to be able to buy a house next summer, but that would mean moving again in just another year! :( Good luck with your move next month!
