Quick update

Haven't written in a while and am realizing that all kinds of things are going on that aren't being recorded here! So here's a list, not necessarily in chronological order or order of importance.

  1. Thought the cat was at death's door, but it turns out that she's fine. Thank goodness, but worrying about her probably shortened *my* life.
  2. We bought the house, have organized for contractors to put a door into one wall and move the door on another. I've painted one wall in S's room and have schlepped over more boxes than I care to remember. Official moving date is set for April 6th.
  3. B stepped wrong coming down the stairs and has sprained his ankle. It was surprisingly hard to find crutches that were the right size for him. He didn't seem to mind all the attention he got the first day he used them but quickly decided that they're way too much effort and is champing at the bit wanting to heal up and get off of them. Might last another week.
  4. M is in Moscow on business this week and keeps sending me pictures of our old haunts- on the one hand I'm thrilled for him and on the other I'm positively green with jealousy.
  5. Went down today and registered B for middle school for next year! How on earth is this possible?!
  6. Yesterday a bully knocked S down, ripped off his good boots and threw them 5 stories down a stairwell. They're totally trashed. I was livid! Called him up and went ballistic over the telephone like a Howler straight out of Harry Potter. Afterward I felt totally ashamed and totally satisfied all at the same time... :-P
  7. We were hoping to find someone to take over our current house from May 1st in order to avoid paying an extra month of double rent. The real estate agent called me yesterday to say she's found someone and they're happy to move in already in the middle of April! AWESOME!

I'm sure there's more, but I'm so fried at this moment that nothing is coming to mind. More later...

:-) I agree, but we're in the middle of moving and schlepping boxes through the end of the week after next. (Have I mentioned that our house is at the top of a flight of 100 stairs?) By the time I get home in the evenings I can hardly move my arms, which makes it kind of difficult to type. ;-)

We've got a couple more intense weeks ahead of us and then I can get back to less strenuous activities, like blogging. and showering. ;-)
