Hey kids, what time is it?

Heck if I know.

I think that I should start taking bets on how long it'll be before all the clocks in the house are once again set to the correct time. Considering the number of clocks in the house and the frequency witch which I actually check on them, I'd be willing to be I might not have them all set right until sometime after I finish moving (i.e. in the new house).

Fortunately the computer, cable box, and my phone (my 3 main time keepers) have set themselves to the right time so I'll be good once I reset my alarm clocks tonight.

Oh, and today was the first time at a family gathering where I kind of felt like I was actually going to do this house thing. Everyone knew about it now and they're all very eager to check out the new place. Of course there's a couple of dozen things I need to do between now and Thanksgiving. We were at my parent's place for my dad's birthday. His cake nearly posed a fire hazard ;). My mom (who's birthday is on Wednesday) informed us that we should consider ourselves free to use just one box of candles on her cake. We also had a very neat heavy thunder/rain storm at the end of the feast. Two days in a row of fairly heavy rain (for about 15 minutes at a stretch). Not too bad. I can't wait to be able to sit out on the porch and watch it rain.

Random thought, since most of my friends have moved at some time in the last few years, any thoughts on how I should pack? I know that the common suggestion is "start with what you don't use much" but I'm curious about what people have found worked (or didn't work) for them. Oh well, time to go back to watching home improvement shows (Sunday's on HGTV are great for restoration ideas).

  • Meet Dargo....

    Pixel and I missed having a little black cat around so I went to the pound Saturday afternoon and I found this little guy in need of a new home:…

  • RIP Morticia a/k/a Ninja Cat :-(

    My little black cat died tonight. It was a sudden and surprising end to a great little cat. I'm doing ok, but I will definitely miss that…

  • Still alive!

    Yes, it's true, I am still alive. Nothing particularly earth shattering has been going on lately, I've just been busy with work and then coming home…
