Happy New Year! It’s two-thousand and heaven (because nothing else rhymes well) and goddamn, this year has got to be better than the last. On the Eve, I did in fact dance my butt off, though because I’ve been working out I never had to take any rest breaks.

I also had a very productive weekend – there’s nothing like an impending move to put a fire under your ass (again with the butt references). Most incredibly, I am now almost finished the art-o-mat pieces I started oh, 3 years ago or so. They should be mailed by the end of the week. I also sewed some slipcovers for my Ikea POANG chair and ottoman, sewed a cat toy from some scraps, did some laundry, culled my sweater and hotel shampoo collections, cleaned half of the bathroom, and started packing. I always forget how time-consuming and distressing packing is. Part of me enjoys the organizing and the busywork aspects, but the other part of me wonders where all this stuff came from and why it takes so many, many boxes to contain it. Last night I was so stressed out and hyper from my day of organizing, cleaning, sewing, and packing, that I was still wide awake in bed, with eyes open, at 2:00. I had to take drugs to get any sleep at all.

House-buying update: Not much to report. Minor septic thing was taken care of. Waiting for my mortgage approval, and right after that should be the dreaded bank appraisal. All of this should happen by the end of the week. Fingers crossed …

Edit! Apparently the bank appraisal is happening tomorrow! I don't know when I will find out the results, however...
