Whoooboy was I hormonal yesterday! From rage, to tears to pain to peace. I'm good now.
I went over on my cell phone minutes. I mean, way over. I already get free nights and weekends, free mobile-to-mobile and 1500 free anytime minutes. And still, I went way over my anytime minutes.
Granted, most of my calls were to/from Andi regarding details of our move in these last couple of weeks. And many other calls were to/from potential landlords, scheduling meetings and walk-throughs. Oh, and moving companies with their estimates. And all this extra work -- lots of client calls this month.
I guess that's all part of the business of work and moving. Because seriously, I'm not shooting the breeze on the phone as much as I usually do. Who has time? Well, maybe a little, with Andi...to break up the business talk. Gotta keep the balance. She's going through a major change. I'm just going through a teeny-tiny change.
As I've said before, I do most of my calling in the car. But with all the details needed to keep in order lately, I'm making double-time calls. One to tell the person I got the message "but I'm in the car and don't have my books in front of me" so I call them back when I get home. Geez, what am I ... running a business here? [Um, yeah.]
I need to move all the boxes I've packed and piled because they are in drippage range -- and we're expecting rain sometime in the next few days. What is the deal with this rain? I don't know what I was thinking when I stacked the boxes there -- I guess I just...wasn't.
My double-dogwalking-duty starts this Thursday and runs through next Friday. I am happy for the extra work. I'm happy to help a fellow dogwalker. And I'm happy to know she trusts me to cover for her. At first she thought maybe three of her clients would want a fill-in. As it turns out, six of them requested someone. That's right. SIX. Six extra dogs. Over and above my groups. In addition to the two individual walks. One whole extra dogpark trip. Say goodnight Gracie!
I thought this weekend would be my very first weekend off in two months. But Igot a call today for Friday and Saturday walks. Plus, I scheduled an appointment for cable and internet hookup at the new address on Saturday. You know how that goes. I'll be sitting in an empty apartment for five hours waiting. My computer's portable. I'll bring DVDs and a pillow.
Perhaps Sunday will be my first day free...to finish packing, that is.
I'm going to live out of a suitcase all next week while working those extra hours. When the moving guys come on the morning of the 15th, I want everything to be packed. No wasting time. No last-minute boxes.
I figure my end of the move will take no more than three hours. I should be in by noon. I'll have the rest of that day to rummage through boxes looking for the necessities. Ha! I never realize how much stuff I have until I move. It's insane. Especially because I really don't have much stuff.
I watched the first eight episodes of Survivor Outback. It's really exciting. Of course, I know who wins because I've seen Survivor All-Stars. But still, it's riveting. Just waiting for more episodes to arrive. For now, I have The Corporation. It looked interesting. And it was recommended by Netflix, based on my past rentals. We'll see.
Bought good healthy eats today. All in the fridge, waiting for me. Let's hope I take the time to cook the protein. Knowing me, I'll work all day, buy ready-made food on my way home, eat and then crash. Hey, whatever it takes.
That's it. My slug of an entry. Just a raw update. I'm going to try to get to sleep earlier than usual. Just to mentally and physically prepare for what's ahead.
