Sunday I moved all my stuff into the new house. It’s nice having all my stuff in the same place, for the first time since October of last year. Most of what I’m unpacking I look at and think, “Cool! I’m so glad that’s still in my life!” There are a few things though that aren’t making the cut, and will be donated.

I’m still trying to find a place for everything in the new house. As well as unpack. It’s a process, and it’s going to take a while, particularly since I am trying to be very thoughtful about it.

I flew to San Francisco this week for the day job. One interesting change — when I came back, the first thing I did was walk out into the backyard and say hello to all the plants there. Though I love my new house, the backyard means just as much, if not more.

I came down with a cold just before I flew out. Am still battling it (and flying really didn’t help my sinuses at all.) I hope to make it to the Clarion West party tomorrow, but it’s really going to depend on whether I’ve passed the hump to mostly well, instead of being mostly sick.

This weekend I have to get my condo ready for sale. New paint on most of the walls, as well as a few minor repairs. I’d like to get it on the market sooner rather than later, but we’ll see. I ran my batteries pretty low before I got sick. I have no reserves at this point.

I hope that each and every one of you has a wonderful 4th this weekend!
