Time is a funny thing

I have no idea how it is almost Friday, I also have no idea how it is that we have been moving things all week and our apartment is still full.
I don't know how it is that we will be living in a house, in less than a week...

seriously, that is a mind blower.

When I came to Columbus 3+ years ago, I arrived with two suitcases filled with clothes and that's about it, later I made a trip to NH for art supplies and my computer but that pretty much sums it up.

My bubs and I were pretty much homeless, I had no job and had yet to sell my house, so we scrounged up money and lived in a seedy no tell hotel for 6 months...we lived in one little room together, with a tiny kitchenette...looking back on it I have to say those memories are very fond, the beginning of our relationship, though frought with lots of turmoil, is still something that makes me smile.

After the hooker hotel we moved into the apartment we are in now, I remember being so happy ot seemed so big, and so fancy...this little place served us well, and it was filled with memories of our first Christmas together and watching the Red Sox win the World Series...but like any place, it saw far too many bad times to count...

it will be great to move on, into a place that is really going to be a home for us.

I almost cry when I think about it.

please forgive the rambling of this post, you see we are out of coffee at the Chateau today, and am feeling awful brain dead and foggy.

It has been an odd few days, on all fronts, you see we found out a couple days ago that the wonderful man who run the Pittsburgh Comic Convention with his wife, was arrested for murdering his first wife 17 years ago...that has left me feeling slightly off, as I always believed him to be a good man, doing a lot for charity...and I know, innocent until proven guilty and all that, but there just seems to be a giant shadow hanging over the comic book world right now.

odd, very odd...and sorry to be so depressing for all of you on this fine what do you all have planned for the weekend?? We have the mean cheese, so we will be on cheese duty and we will try to sneak a few more loads to the new house, that is if she will let us, lol.

SO last night I went to the post office new button sets and mirrors came in, and I am so excited!!! The buttons are 1.25 inches, the others I got were only 1 inch so these are a little bit bigger...I have shown two photos of the sets of buttons, as for the mirrors they are amazing, amazing...all my mirror images have been uploaded to my flickr account if you want to see them all, and if there are any that you want specifically just let me know and I will list it for you.

The buttons will be listed in my shop shortly, if you go there and they are not there just convo me and I will list a set for you.

ok, I expected this to be a lot more entertaining than it's the lack of coffee....I am crippled without it.

One of the myriad reasons it's sad that we no longer live close to each other is that in dire situations like this, I could bring you emergency caffeine. Like a coffee ambulance or something.

It's funny, because when you were talking about first moving out there, it made me realize how long ago it was, and yet how in some ways, it seems like just yesterday. Time gets weirder as we get older, does it not?

Have a good weekend, and good luck with the moving!! xoxoxo

Oh Jenn - Just another one of the ways in which I feel an afinity with you!!! we even move house at around the same time. I know exactly how you feel - I have been driving Mark batty as at least every five minutes I feel a great desire to turn to Mark and tell him how much I love this house LOL!!! And you will love your too. Ever onwards and upwards. We can always keep good (and bad) memories but there is so much to look forward to!!!

I understand how you feel.

When I moved out of my last nice apartment into my current shitbag apartment, it was tough. The last place was the first apartment I had after getting out of a terrible marriage - and I had had some fantastic (and horrible) times there.

aw, you and bubs are all growing up. it brings tears to my eyes. I am so happy for your graduation to the new house, I think the memories you make there are going to outshine so many others. It's going to be so great to have the mean cheese there as well. The weekends just might get a bit easier/smoother. Hope you all have a lovely weekend! My family is coming to visit, which means I will either have a fabulous weekend or dreadful, it can really go either way with my folks.

Damn, you left New England about two years after we got here. If only Etsy had existed earlier we may have met! We left Columbus in Feb 2003. It was a sudden move to Boston and a lonely winter for me as I knew nobody here.

I'm really happy for you and your bubs, for all the changes you make together, for all the memories you have in the hooker hotel and your current apartment. I know that you will have many MANY wonderful memories in the new (BIG) house too!

The mirrors and buttons look great!

Wish I could pass you some coffee. Will you accept a virtual cup? ;)

Oh, it is so sweet to hear of your humble beginnings and how you and the bubs have moved up in life. Sounds like good memories. Congrats to you both on the new house and everything. But yes, moving sucks. and it's never ending. I loathe moving.

The new buttons look fantastic. Very very cool.
Have a good weekend with the cheese!

Even though you're not "officially" in, I want to wish you and your bubs best wishes and many happy memories in your new home. I'm so excited for both of you. I'm just back from 3 weeks in Europe and am trying to catch up with everyone's blogs and update my own, too!

Dang...I know what you mean about the coffee thing...I'm trying to take care of myself, so now I'm just tired and have a headache...ick.

Good luck with the continued move. After reading your last post, you need to get somewhere safer, and luckily...even the fond memories that you've built together (both good and bad) can be brought with you!
