Whew! That is over with!

ok, most of the big stuff went. However, my living room furniture did not....sooooo....I will be taking it with me. I may sell it on Craigslist once I get to A2, but I DO like I will probably keep it. I have a pile of stuff to take to good will, and a mattress to take to the dump. That is IT folks....I am nearly OUT OF HERE! I am SOOOO ready to be in A2!! I work 4 days this week...and that is it.........then.....a party next saturday with my family and a party next Sunday with my office....then Monday, I drive to A2 to sign my lease and get my keys......make a quick trip to IKEA (I know there are no quick trips to IKEA, however I am going to pretend for and Since I am going there and will have access to the apartment, I am taking a car load of stuff over. Then the rest of that next week will be spent getting this house clean (why, I have no clue, except it will make me feel better to leave this place knowing it was spotless) Then....on Friday the 13th......time to move.............WOOHOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!! I really can not tell you how incredibly excited I am.......and.....knowing that Scott and Scott are close by..............really helps me.....just knowing I already have friends close by is comforting! Ok......I think that might be enough for now.......I need to sweep the living room since I moved the furniture, I can see all the dust bunnies!! Peace!

Ready, Set.............

GO! I am sad to report that in the little burg of TR........garage sales are a hot event..........I don't even have my signs made! I just need to run to the store to get the stakes......get some change (Dollars and quarters) and then finish getting things out there. Everything that is out there is priced........I am basically ready.....but I won't be surprised to have people chomping at the bit before need to get going! I do hope that you all are having a much enjoyable weekend.....the ONLY reason that today is going to be any good at the fact that Jenny and Paul are going to be here! Wish me luck........everything needs to sell so I don't have to drag it anywhere else! LMAO!

Ruh Roh!

Lil miss procrastinator has now the huge job of getting ready for a garage sale (basically from scratch) from this moment, until tomorrow morning...........when the garage sale begins. OYE! I have a feeling I will be up all night. I am looking forward to getting rid of all of this stuff....what doesn't sell will of course be donated to Good Will. I am amazed to think that within 2 weeks I will be living in Ann Arbor! I am excited and fearful. I am trying to leave lots of space for this transition. PG asked me today........what do I want to do the same, or be the same and what do I want to not do the same or not be the same as I transition.........I really need to be with that question and think about it. For now though..........I need to get this garage sale ready! I can't wait to see Paul and Jenny!

I get up this morning and come to my blog and read what I wrote last night.............goodness gracious! That "F" word surly was overused! Sorry about that. I am trying to wake up! A shower should help that. I am SOOO NOT ready for the garage sale. I WILL be....but I am going to have to work for it. I hope to sell lots, the more I sell.....the more I can buy...LMAO! Actually, what I sell at the garage sale is going to help with the immediate moving costs, my "cash" for the other big things I need won't be available to me that weekend that I move, so I need to have some extra cash for the incidentals of moving. Ok.....I better go shower so I can wake up!

Craziness I am seriously thinking that I want an iMac and a all know as well as I do that I do NOT need 3 computers.....................but I am SOOOO tempted. I have to give this some more thought. I just know that I am going to be a poor PhD student for the next five I want to get what I want NOW........but I only have so much money.........well............I will sleep on it. Peace~ Katie

Ahhhhh....Scott has spoken!

Thanks Scott! I knew of course that his opinion on Apple would be highly prejudice......I do find it very interesting that every single person I know who has an Apple, or has had an Apple.......are loyal to the core about them. I have never met one person who has or has had an Apple that says anything negative about them. I am strongly leaning towards getting the IMac. Scott I did go to the Apple store again on line and discovered with my UofM student email address it saved me $100 on the IMac. Plus I get an Ipod nano for free....although I want the real Ipod. I have some things to think about..............Thank you so much for all the info Scott! I hope you are all having a fabulous day............I keep counting down the days.....only 8 work days left.....woooohoooo!!!

Taps fingers on desk................

Waiting for my email from Scott in regards to my question.....tap tap tap .........:o)

I just ordered this I really need to remember how to make links....sorry! Anyway........I thought this would be a good thing to do as my ritual for my life changing summer. Could be fun.............LMAO!


First, be sure and scroll to the bottom of my site here and see a new player that I installed, you can here bits of each track from the save Darfur album.

Ok....question for you...............I have a dell PC laptop, which I like. I am wanting to get a desktop at my new apartment. How much trouble will I cause myself if I get an Apple mini? My laptop is wireless, I will have a wireless router hooked up to my cable internet. Can I NOT run a PC and an Apple? I can't afford to get a desk top AND a new laptop. What do you think? Am I better off getting a dell desktop?

Oh, I so can't wait to go shopping here It is 20 miles from my new place in A2. Scott reminded me that there was an Ikea on this side of the state. (I always thought of it being in Chicago). I don't know why I have no energy......4 hours at the beauty shop might have something to do with it...LMAO! Ok, I just thought i would check in and give you all a site to look at for fun! I am seriously thinking of the leather loveseat/chaise......oh baby!

Happy Weekend!

Three Weekends left here at the ranch! I was reserving my moving truck and saw PODS, I thought, oh would that make my life just lovely, to get one of those, put it in the backyard, and put all of my stuff in it now and get it out of the way, then have them move it to Ann Arbor on the 13th! Unfortunately they don't service my zip code here. So I get to trip over boxes for another 3 weeks. Having the garage sale next weekend will help. Today is laundry, cleaning and organizing. I also get my hair done. I am going blonde, I started it at the last appointment, we bleached my hair and we are going to bleach it one more time today, then find a color to keep my roots. It has helped, the gray is not so obvious as it grows in when the rest of my hair is blonde. This will make it easier when I actually decide to let it go gray. I hope your weekend is peaceful.

only 2 weeks left!

After today, there is only 2 weeks left for me to work as the director of this program! The second week has the 4th of July in there, so it is only a 4 day week. There are two parties planned for me at this point (that I am aware of) One from my family on the 6th and one from my office on the 7th. I am looking forward to both of them and felt honored that they would think to do something like that. I am not sure as far as the hospital goes, I get the feeling it is just going to pass by without much fan fare, which isn't a bad thing. I am simply not sure just how I am going to accomplish everything, but I will just plug away and do what I can. For now though, I really need to get to work! Peace~

Oh MY!

I now have my bedroom furniture on layaway. (My new mattress is on my front porch). I do think I am going to put the red sofa and chaise in the garage sale and see if it sells. If it doesn't, then I will live with it.............and if it does sell, then I will buy NEW! I have to rent a Uhaul either way but I am trying to move as little as possible. (The bedroom furniture is on layaway at art van, of which there is one in A2, so I will pay it off once I am there and have them deliver it. Most of my furniture is in boxes, which means I will be assembling furniture for days once I move...LOL. I just bought a rocker for my deck. It is just fun, to get WHAT I want....this is MY time to have things that I want and like. My entire life has been having things that I bought at garage sales or people gave me. I am getting things deeply discounted, but I am at least buying things that I like! I am saving a few things to buy once I move in, and feel the space, then I will know what it needs. I did hear from my apartment complex today, they are putting in new carpet today! I also get to pick one wall to have them paint it whatever color I want. I want the living room wall done..............but until I know what my furniture is going to be in there, I can't decide on a color (I have always wanted a deep red painted wall) so, I am waiting on that choice. Ok.....I think I have blabbed on long enough. I hope all is well for you all......................~Peace~

Happy Happy, Joy Joy

There was some cartoon that said adult cartoon I think.......hmmmm....well....anyway..........I am still trying to keep myself in the moment and not live in the future.............It is a bit more difficult actually, especially since the moments lately are such a drag.....LOL. This weekend I am going to get ready for the garage sale that I am having next weekend. I think it will help to get some of the clutter out of here. Time to get a few things accomplished this morning and off to work.!

I was so looking forward to today, as the heat was suppose to be alleviated, however the humidity is worse (if that is even possible) and the air is so thick I can barely breathe! I do however have AC in my apartment in A2!! There I go again thinking of the future......I am really trying to enjoy the moments that I am living right now. I am off to work........only 3 weeks left!! I am fairly sure that I am not going to have everything completed in time......but they have retained me to work 1-2 days a week until the end of the year (at least), so I will be back on site to tie up loose ends. I hope you are having a wonderful week so far. Peace~

Monday, Monday..............

(the Mama and the Pappa right?) My charge nurse for hospice is on vacation all week, normally my other nurses would pick up her case load, however I need clinical hours for my training, so I am picking up the patient visits this week. I am looking forward to visiting with all the patients and their care givers. Of course I have a million other things that I should be doing prior to my departure from the will all get done............I really am on a different time frame than I have ever been before...........slow to medium............I sorta wish I wouldn't have slowed down until after the move........LMAO!

Sunday, June 17, 2007

I think this is about it..........

I fixed the links and my bookshelf is updated, and I took off the photo.....goodness that was like BIG and in your face wasn't it???? LMAO! It is freakin hot here! I packed up some more things. By the time July 13th rolls around I will be packed and ready to go.....OH !!!!ANNDDDDDDDDDDDD guess what is happening the week following my move to A2? The annual A2 Art Fair! Woohooo!!! I think Jenny might need to come stay with me a night and go to the art fair....hee hee.

Saturday, June 16, 2007


How in the world did I ever get all the things done that I have done in the past? It seems as if it is virtually impossible for me to accomplish everything that I need to and that is LESS than what I typically do. I am amazed. Maybe it is this transition that I am working on that is slowing me down to natures pace (Medium to slow). At any rate, I feel exhausted this evening and I do believe that I am heading off to bed! I hope the weekend is going well for you all and soon, I will have this blog up to speed! ~Peace~

Take II

So much transformation is occuring in my life this year and I thought it was appropriate to make a change to the blogging world of Katie. I had a few other reasons for "starting over" and we shall see if it works or not! we go!
