As it seems all my blog posts seem to start by saying; I have not written in a while and for that I’m sorry. The winter storms and cold have passed, as we sit here in the 30C weather soaking up the heat and the sun. As the time nears closer to September, eyes have been kept out for places to live 3 hours away (as significant other has gotten into her Masters program). Trips have been traveled via Grey Hound. The trip has all become normal in life. The early morning wake ups, the riding the rails towards the station in the wee hours of the morning, and the lining up to board… has all but become trivial now. In the past 4 weeks, I have traveled north, and then back south 4 times all in the search for a place to live. The last visit produced some luck as we are in the process of a lease takeover which will at the bare minimum get us up there. The Hound has been good to me, it comes equipped with wifi, plug-ins, and leg room for my roast beef like legs.
The traveling hound will strike again in the coming days, as the hound is switched for a plane, and the house hunt is switched to a Cruise. My first Disney Cruise (Second Cruise in a lifetime). I am what you call melodramatic; in private I am super excited about Disney, but in public I save face. Case in point, while getting my hair cut the other day, the hair dresser found out we were going to Disney, and then became all fan-girl (with scissors in hand) as I was Meh. I am not-so-secretly counting down the days until we leave. I will be packing everything I own it seems in the off chance I need extra clothing and nic-nacs for the trip. I’m excited, that I even joined “Dis-Boards.” When I come back, be on the look out for sunburned me in a Disney eared hat.
Trying to coordinate these two major milestones at the same time has been strenuous on me. One where I am super joyful to be going, while the other is stressful and tedious which has left me with a whirl wind of emotions. Happy and anxious at the same time. Add, trying to find a new job in the new place and Student loan repayment coming due. It seems to all happen at once. Sometimes it’s overwhelming where I get defeated and end up tearing. But Looking on the bright side – Cruise!
With the latest update to Windows 8, my computer decided to go all “blinky” screen of annoyance on me yesterday. Where I couldnt open any windows or programs. I got it to boot up in safe mode (with the help of a computer tech friend (Shift + Restart)) and got back down to base product. To date, 109 updates to go and W8.1 to be installed. All while Disney-ing and Packing to move, and Documenting the whole process. So my advice to you, Do not get Norton 360 as this was the cause for the crash…. Grumble Grumble Grumble / Disney Disney Disney.
