Screaming At the Calendar...

I can't believe it's July already. I mean, SERIOUSLY??? 2010 is shaping up to be another Year That Got Away.

Problem is, I haven't figured out how to slow it down. It's like that song--how does it go? Life's like an hourglass glued to the table...yeah, but the sands seem to be speeding out of control!

Oh well. At least I can make these next six months of 2010 jam-packed if I want to. Moving usually puts everything on hold. I will say the unpacking has kept me busy. I fall into bed every night exhausted. Today it's my office. It is mostly unpacked, but not put together. It's on the first floor right off the front doors. I am very excited to frou frou it up and get everything set just the way I want it. After that I have to tackle the upstairs, and whoever said "one room a day" (ahem, my husband, ahem) should be shot. It doesn't take just one day to do a room. Not for me. I have to take my time and make it liveable, and homey. Maybe it's the domestic Taurus in me, but I just have to have my surroundings the way I want them. ;-) And it takes time.

I had weird dreams last night. One of them involved a talking cat. It was my friend Devon's cat, and I was cat-sitting. Only it was talking to me.

No more Alice In Wonderland for me.

I was just lamenting the same fact about the year this morning to my friend! I can't believe it's July and I leave for vacation in 26 days. WOO!

If you ever cat sit for me, the cats WILL talk. And you will understand exactly what they say, because they won't shut up until you do! ;)

I had weird dreams last night, too.

It may take a day to unpack the boxes for a room, but it takes more than a day to make it alive. It takes however long it takes -- every room, every house, has a distinct personality that meshes with its residents, and sometimes it takes awhile to learn it.
