Going in at 4 PM today...a short shift, 1st cut...

July 25th, 2006 (03:47 pm)

And then I have FIVE whole days off, to move.
FIVE whole DAYS!!!
So much more than I even asked for...

The Folks at work are great.
At a time when we are losing several valued servers, and the schedule
has been a chore to fill up properly--they gave me all the time in the world
to take care of my Life.

I've been socking money away in the tea-pot, worrying about pet deposits, service
charges to change over utilities....how much does trash pick-up cost?
And Ben squeezes me and tells me he has the all the deposits/rent/house stuff taken
care of. Calm down, little Root!

Of course, of course He does.
*happy sigh*
I keep forgetting, it is so hard to remember....I'm not on my own anymore.
I can unclench, let go a little?

Allow the man I love, to take care of ME too...

You wouldn't think that would be so hard--but it is.

*laughs at herself*

I got an email today, from Benjamin's Mum...
I very nearly cried.

She's sent a housewarming present in the way of a check, it is for one thing and one
thing only, I am to spend it on my SEWING MACHINE... from that wonderful man on
South Congress who rebuilds and services the classic ones.

The sewing machine I have been wanting for about a decade. Never had the room for
one before... Now I have a study! A sewing room. bloodlossgirl, She got me
my SEWING MACHINE!!! @_@

*throws hands in the air laughing hard*

It's all coming together, isn't it.
This is what it feels like.

Part of something larger than yourself.

*looks at the time*

Off to Work now, gotta run.
And then--then THE GREAT MOVE begins.

^_^

Oh, the Adventure.

awesome with a side of awesome sauce
Everybody DANCE!

a SEWING MACHINE?!!? Oh i'm so envious! But also, glad for you :)

This entry resonates, G - so much. Because I also have difficulty accepting that I'm not on my own, I'm not doing this move on my own, and that I have someone to help take care of me. I'm the care-giver, not the other way around.

I have a lot to learn.

I don't know how to unclench and let go, very well -

We had lunch today with Friends of N, who are from/have been to West Virginia many times - told us of the roller-coaster roads, the beautiful things -

adventure!~

and really wild things.

Packitch out to you tomorrow, I'll send it priority mail, so watch for it. :)

Love to you now :)

Re: awesome with a side of awesome sauce

We are so....we share so much, you and I.

I adore that.
I've felt so close to you for so long...
lope around in my Vampire Bunny slippers you made,
and you are an old Friend--though I have never stood in the same room with you.

We two find ourselves in overlapping situations far too often for it to be less than Kismet.
I am glad to know you, know that I am supposed to know you, love you very much.

WE ARE MOVING!!!!

^_^

We are growing and learning and moving...

How Fabulous!!!

Re: awesome with a side of awesome sauce

We do. We are an odd overlapping parallel. An orbit around the same planet. Sometimes we are at the far opposite ends of our separate orbits, but we slingshot back.

I am glad to know you too :) I'm not going to get all verklempt but you are quite dear to me. One day we'll sit in the same room over coffee, and then drinks.

moving, moving on up ... to the East Side (in my case)(of the country)

we've finally got a piece of the pie.

Yuppers.

Slingshot.

No more sap, just enjoying the pie.

I feel your pain. 5 days off would be a dream. We are in the middle of moving right now too.(south 1st-ish)
YAY!

I didn't have a chance to go in to Opal's last week. I was feeling frenetic. I wasn't ready. I knew it would show.
A look at the calendar just revealed that Marley starts back to school in 3 weeks. Yikes!

Next week, when you are back. Then I'm headed your way, girlie!

TAP IT NOW!

if you feel up to it, go in, use my name...
I am in ZER good standing.
Ask for Chet, he's the new GM--we talk Comic Books together
and both went to school in the same system in Germany--MILITARY BRATS!

Go now, it's ripe.
We said goodbye to three loverly people tonight, much loved, who are moving on...
Away from Austin.

Get in NOW, it's a nice window that will close quickly.

DAMMIT! I work until 5 for the next 2 days. The soonest I can go in is Friday afternoon. That really sucks.

Do you guys still take interviews on Friday or is it only Mon-Thurs?

Of course I'm right in the middle of a huge move and this is the week I get the crazy schedule from hell from my employer.
Thankyou so much for the use of your name- I appreciate that. I'll take you up on it.
I would imagine it helps at a place like Opal's.

When you can get in is when you can get in...
I don't think that means doom.

I just thought the sooner the better.

And yeah, most everyone I have met, hired since I got there,
knows someone there....
And I did too.

It's a place like that for sure--but don't kill yourself getting in there
in the next few days, *grief*
I'm sorry!!!!
Do it when you can....

I'm sure it will be fine.

I'm going to see what I can do about going in tomorrow. I've been scheming since I read your comment above.

I just can't help feeling that if it's been so good for you..well, it could be really good for me too. Thankyou, dear.

I am SO behind....where are you moving to? A house...Oh bother

Posted by: Red Lipstick & Green Ink (ginger931)
Posted at: July 26th, 2006 07:52 am (UTC)

Yes!

A loverly house, three bedrooms, vintage 60's with all original fixtures...
OH the pictures I will post.

The counters alone.

*swoon*

It is in the same area where I live now, and actually a mile or two closer to work!
I could WALK if I had to, it's only a mile away now.

YES!!!

(only I am still here for now...)

I'll call with the address, the number remains the same.

Wow.
See...if it was just me, I would have posted the address.
But this is open, and it isn't just ME any more.

I almost wrote it out, and then stopped.

I'm not just ME anymore.
