Some perky person told me I should be bright eyed and bushy-tailed today. Thursday night I stayed up until 1 a.m. again getting furniture ready to move Friday, taking apart beds and putting everything in one room so it will go fairly quickly. I don’t feel bright eyed today. Friday, like today I am a bit bleary eyed and droopy tailed because some of that furniture is heavy. Heck, even the dog is tired!
The move is actually, sort of, kind of, going smooth. We don’t actually have to be out of the house we were in until the 31st of March, but I wanted to get out a few days early so we could go back and mop, steam the floors and carpet. I like to leave things as neat as when we moved in at least, though the paint job is better than when we moved in. That house was an experience in painting. One bedroom was half pink and half blue. One bathroom was swirly turquoise, and the kitchen was half turquoise and half green. It was a paint nightmare and we had to get lots of primer to cover the blue and pink room because that paint just did not want to be covered up. We worked with it and finally got it to look okay. We didn’t paint that whole house like we are the one we are moving in to now. We knew going in there that we might have to move after just a year so we left the hall way and living room white.
I can’t wait to be in the new neighborhood, the square block has a big incline, loop then comes back down to our street. I will be doing laps every day as soon as I get home. I can’t wait to get back into running! I love exercising, but I am an outdoor person. I love walking and running, but don’t care for it on a treadmill. In fact, I gave my treadmill to my brother years ago because I just didn’t use it.
I might wear little Comet out trotting up and down the blocks, maybe I should get a doggy backpack for when he gets tired. He’s a little trooper, but he is short and those little legs can only go so fast. He is a funny little tyke and I know he will make new friends in the neighborhood, but he’s going to miss his squirrel friend that likes to taunt him in the backyard now, leaping from tree to tree while Comet runs around in circles on the ground barking up into the air. One thing about dogs, they are always happy to see you, even if you just left seconds ago, they forgive easily and love freely. Cats are another matter completely, a cat can hold a grudge and give you a look that needs no wordy explanation if they are mad at you; with a cat forgiveness is earned.
