I should know me, and baby, you would think I'd know better...  
I'm feeling very disconnected from most of my friends right now. It's amazing how much we rely on LJ and chat programs... I know that I did/do, but until I didn't really have access for more than a week (well, I HAD access, but if I'd taken the time I wouldn't have been able to do the things I was in Florida to do), it didn't really hit home. That in its own way leads to my next thought. I feel somewhat guilty that I didn't spend much time with anyone while at Nimbus. There were a few people I got to spend more than 5 seconds with, and I was glad of that. I was also happy at the number of people who ended up coming to our impromptu Trivial Pursuit room party Saturday night - I hope you all had fun, I definitely did. I will continue working on a detailed writeup, which will most likely come this weekend.

Today has been much better than yesterday so far. I'm getting back into work and not feeling so lost and out of touch. Long vacations are great, but it makes it so much harder to come back to the everyday grind. I also talked to my mom last night - we don't need to move out by August 10th, we need to have a bunch of our furniture in storage by August 10th so my dad can get more work done on the house. Big huge difference there. My brother should know by tomorrow whether or not he got the job. I've already done a lot of searching online for apartments, and I've also contacted an agency that searches for you for free (they're paid by the apt. complexes), so I'm feeling fairly confident that we'll find a place that will suit us in our price range. We're aiming to move on September 1st. The only thing that makes me nervous is signing a lease - I don't know if I want to commit to a year. My life is in such a stage of flux that even when I do move, I don't intend to unpack entirely. Of course, that's nothing new as I haven't entirely unpacked for the past 6 years or so. So I don't know.

My niece's birthday party isn't until the 2nd, which means I actually DO get this weekend to sleep and recover. You have no idea how happy that thought makes me.
I feel: okayokay

*links arms and lets you feel connected*

I'm glad real life is working out alright. Or better than the worst case scenario you'd seen a few days ago, anyway.

When you move, unpack entirely. It will make you crazy and then you will be exhausted for a few days, and then you will pick up and move on with life. But as long as you keep things half-packed, you will always feel as if you are in transition, even if you aren't. And um... if there are things that have been packed for 6 years, do you really still need them? <-- the same one I recieved 30 minutes ago, amidst my packing.

*hugs* Believe it or not, it used to be worse. After I'd been hauling around the same boxes to my 5 different moves while in San Diego, I stopped and went through them right before move #5 and got rid of a TON of crap. What's left are things I really want to keep. My biggest problem is that I really don't own furniture - I don't own a dresser or bureau, shelves, not even a kitchen table - so I don't have places to put things. So for the time being, they are stuck being in storage. One good thing I realized is that when we move, I will have my own bathroom and will therefore be able to put up all my HP stuff! I've been collecting things for an HP bathroom for over a year now. :)
