Back from the dead.

Or Ohio. Whichever.

I wish I could say that I was away from my blog for a week because I was on a Caribbean island surrounded by a male stripper convention, raking in millions of dollars a day because I'd found a way to lose ten pounds an hour while eating chocolate. But, really, it's just more of the same shit around here with the medication. I've lost my ability to concentrate, which means no knitting to report, which means not a whole hell of a lot to blog about. Especially since I was in Ohio without my spinning wheel, which means no spinning to report, either. Tomorrow I call the doc to see about a nerve block. Won't that be fun.

Anyway, in the mean time, as chaos reigns, I will try to keep doing my usual out-of-left-field topics. And I'll try blogging the move, if I can; the shrieking and profanity should be entertaining as all hell. Especially if I'm drugged up, into the bargain.

The last week... well, I already said no spinning or knitting to report.

We drove to Ohio in this getup:

It took nearly fourteen hours on the road. At one point we were getting seven miles to the gallon (three kilometers per liter, ish?). Yes. A lovely time was had by all. The Goober thinks this about days spent in the car:

I've gotta say, I agree.


Once in Ohio, the Goober spent the week hanging with her grandparents.


The husbeast spent it changing vehicles to Ohio registration and other errands. I think I spent it staring at the walls. I'm not quite sure. I know I helped make a lemon meringue pie in there somewhere.


And then back home again, where I guess I've been asleep the last couple days. Or something. I'm pretty sure the Goober's getting away with stuff, 'cause she looks like this a lot:



Oh yeah, baby, getting ready for a move is gonna be a good time.

Sounds like lots of fun and games at your house!

We're all glad you made it there and back safely, anyway! I love pics of the Goob with her grandparents.

Nothing much to say except just keep going; and I don't envy you; and anything you can post will be interesting, whether extensively-researched or not...

Verfication word: santikat. Amelia-Peabody-cat looked slightly amused; as much as one can expect.

the photos make it look like it was a lot more fun than I'm sure it was!

OKay-- we'll plan the ritual sacrifice of the VK designer on another date. And since I've spent all day sleeping with nowhere NEAR your reasons to be tired, I can only tell you I feel REALLY productive... in my dreams...

Back from the dead? Have you read Pride and Prejudice and Zombies?

Hope things improve soon. Sending you all strong vibes!

That is one guilty looking face! I hope you have some success with the doctors and get some relief.

That is one grown-up girl guilty looking face. I think she shaved the cat.

Sending vibes to hold you up for moving. Wish I could be there to help.

Eventually, things will calm down. Even if it doesnt seem like it now. Good to hear you made it safely back home.

Remember that poster from the
70's..."HANG IN THERE BABY!"

Hope they find out something helpful at the doc's.
Moving once you have more stuff than will fit in a station wagon is not something to look forward to. You have my sympathy (The Husband says the only way he's moving again is feet first).
Verification: intoll meaning you will be paying tolls?

What's a nerve block? It doesn't sound good.

Boy, I HOPE the rest goes more easily than this & that you come up with some better pain management. That you show such good nature in this post awes me.
