In Which I Am Battered And Broken

Moving does not agree with me.

My ankles are swollen, I have a muscle spasm between my shoulder blades, and I'm pretty sure I cracked a rib. But I'm not complaining.

Why?

Because today, instead of packing, lifting, and carrying all of the possessions I hold too dear to just fucking get rid of, I have to work. I never thought I'd look forward to work but after my three-day moving marathon, the thought of spending ten glorious hours on my ass was enough to bring tears of joy.

I have a lot of catching up to do, both on your comments and new posts. I haven't been at my computer since Saturday, so bear with me while I get up to speed.

Hey, at least you didn't get a hernia. I've been there and done that. It sucks.

scatterbrain said...

Good to have your geeky ass back BaG. We missed you.

Good luck with settling into your new place. Hope you have good neighbours.

Cape Cod Gal said...

Well, it's about time you returned. We missed you and your wise ass comments. The sphere has not been the same!

Moving blows. I moved 9 times between the ages of 19 and 20. The only good thing was that I now have a lot less shit. Moving helps you see the necessity and personal worth of your items. Especially after moving that fucking lamp for the 7th time.

Enjoy that ass sitting! Sounds like you deserve it!
Tell us soon about your new place. How's the kitty adjusting?

It's a sad thing when we actually look forward to going to work.

Hope you, the Boss and your new kitty are settling in.

Miss Grace said...

Ug. Sigh. Moving. Welcome back!

Russ: Amen to that. I've been treated for a minor hernia before... Don't want to go back there again.

Scatterbrain: It's a quiet little village of sorts, where our only neighbors are going to be one older (quiet) couple.

Cape Cod Gal: I've missed it here, too! I had a shitload to get caught up on.

Sus: Nine times?

Moonspun: Liam is adjusting well enough, although we had to teach him how to climb stairs... It was a cute experience.

Employee No 3699: Oh, yes. It's very sad, but I was actually upbeat upon logging in this morning. That has NEVER happened.

Miss Grace: Thanks! It's good to be back.

Aunt Becky said...

I'll never move again. Or maybe I will, but I'll be heavily sedated the whole time.

Sus said...

Yeah. Long story short, it consisted of me moving in and out of my parents' home a few times due to various circumstances, moving in with my sister's boyfriend at the time (sounds weird, but she was totally cool with it and he was a great roommate), moving in with my boyfriend at the time, and moving out when I walked in on him with another girl. That was sweet. I highly recommend THAT experience to everyone.

Can you feel the sarcasm? Can you?

Lola said...

So glad your broken and battered body is back. I missed you! Hope the new place is great. I know you'll both love the dishwasher!

Badass Geek said...

Aunt Becky: Sedation, eh? I'll have to try that next time. Oh yeah, and hire movers.

Sus: I can feel the sarcasm. Did you get my "Ferris Beuller" reference from earlier?

Lola: The new place is pretty good so far. Haven't used the dishwasher yet, but I'm looking forward to it!

Sus said...

Haha yes I did. I even said it like Ed Rooney.
