Where did the weekend go?

I can't believe that it is sunday night already.  It seems as though the weekend just started and I didn't accomplish near as much as I thought I would.  In fact, I didn't accomplish much at all.  I did manage to go in and work for a few hours yesterday and get the grocery shopping done.  I have a funny feeling that I will be sneaking in some overtime every change I get as I love my new house but there are things that I really need to get for it like living room furniture.  I am just glad that Ikea has some nice couches at a reasonable price.  Oh and bookcase, many bookcases.

What I didn't get done is to sort through some paperwork to find out what I need to keep and what needs to be recycled.  Speaking of recycling, I still don't have my garbage or recycling cans.  I have been here a week and I ordered the utilities turned on a week before we moved.  I swear I hate the garbage mafia in this town.  Don't they understand that when a person moves they are going to have a lot of recycling and garbage.  I can't even take the garbage to the dump because I don't have a utility bill yet.  I wonder what they would do if I took it all and dumped it on their front lawn?

I haven't had a change to set up my studio yet.  Well I can't actually say that as I did have this weekend but I had been shorting myself on my pain pills so I wouldn't run out before time to refill them so I have been really hurting.  I did go refill them today and I have some relief but if everything goes according to the norm, it will be couple days before I am back to normal.

It did give me an excuse however to hit up some great book blogs during their blogfest.  Hopefully I will win some new books.  Books are going to be the downside of moving.  All those wonderful books that I was receiving from publishers are going to come to a halt.  Oh why can't UPS & FedEx set up a forwarding system?

So how was everybody's weekend?  Did you manage to accomplish everything on your list?


  1. The first thing I thought when I saw that photo was "OH! Invite me over so we can dig through your BOOKS!" I love to talk books.
