In Which I've Come Down With Something

The Boss and I went down to Massachusetts on Sunday to say our goodbye's to her great-grandmother. She has pneumonia, which is not a good diagnosis for someone in their late nineties. It was a rough day, a long day, and things are still a little raw around the edges. 

We're signing the lease on our new apartment today. I'm trying to be excited and motivated for the move, but after you've moved seven times in three years, the thought of moving again is like trying to get motivated for a colonoscopy. 

I got a package in the mail the other day. It's kinda keeping me from my normal blogging fare today. I got this huge case of it, and I've got no choice but to keep it.


See you all on Wednesday.

Sorry to hear about great gram

Good luck with the move; its such a bitch!

You going to reveal what's in the package? Hmmm!?! ...just 'cause I'm nosey like that ;-)

Moonspun said...

Who deliered that package? I mean seriously...once you saw the side of it, couldn't you refuse to sign for it?
Hugs anyway to you both!

Laura said...

I hate Mondays... they are so awful, they even taint Sundays.

for the love of pictures said...

I unfortunately picked up a touch of The Mondays through osmosis on the train the morning, so I feel your pain :(

I'm sorry to hear about great gram and the pains of moving.

Children of the Nineties said...

Classic case of the Mondays + compounded by moving = extreme irritability. Good luck with the move!

The Social Frog said...

I am very sorry to hear about great-grandomther. I also can relate to moving...that is a big part of military life, and might I add not fun unless you hate the last place you were stationed at,lol. Try to have a good day!

Nej said...

Seven times in three years! Have you gotten to the point where you just don't unpack anymore?

Lola said...

I don't think any day is a good day to move. Good luck, and hopefully you're moving into the first floor ;)

Aunt Becky said...

Stupid moving.

mrssoup said...

Good luck with the move!

And I seriously have a case of the Mondays as well today.....uggg.

Miss Grace said...

YOu guys really do move a lot.

Employee No. 3699 said...

Seven moves in 3 years? I think BAG might stand for Badass Gypsy.

Cape Cod Gal said...

I got that same package. I'm pretty sure I'm getting one tomorrow too!

Badass Geek said...

Inna: I think most people do.

Kat: Yeah.

Jenn(ifer): Inside was a personal dark cloud to hang over one's head.

Moonspun: It was left on my doorstep. Bastard Fed-Ex guy didn't want to hold onto it.

Laura: They really do.

FTLOP: The Monday's are very contagious.

COTN: Thank you!

The Social Frog: I long have felt like if I did join the military, the moving around wouldn't be too bad.

Nej: Pretty much, yes.

Lola: There is never a good time to move. However, doing it before the summer heat comes is nice.

Aunt Becky: Moving IS stupid.

Mrs Soup: Thank you!

Miss Grace: Not by any want of moving, I tell you.

Employee No 3699: You may be right.

Cape Cod Gal: Not your preferred type of package, is it?

splodge said...

Sorry The Boss's great-grandmother is unwell and that you had those Monday Morning blues.

I've had 'em all week, sigh!

I've learned to be patient with you Badass, 'cos I know you'll let us have a peek inside the box soon. Won't you? Please?

x said...

How funny. That box came to me today!

Badass Geek said...

Splodge: Honestly, there was nothing inside the box. It was as empty as I felt that day.

X: It does get around, doesn't it.

splodge said...

Doh! I know, I know. You must think I'm SUCH a div! My comment kept me awake last night.

I admit I read the post in a rush - my mind has been elsewhere for a while. That's my excuse and I'm sticking to it:-D
