One Week Later, The Eagle Has Landed

"Take calculated risks. That is quite different from being rash".
George C. Patton

Quite bruised and tired, mind you, but landed. I thought I might chat this morning before hucking boxes back and forth. What do ya think? I DO NOT advise moving at this age. Lets say.... no moving after menopause. Good one. Plan for it.
This City has changed even more in 4 years. There all all kinds of places new, or Someday soon I will venture out to investigate. For now, I need my studio up and running by November 1st.:::cause I promised::: I would like to say that its coming along, but what a cool lie that would be! i feel quite fortunate to have internet! I was just tickled to hear the GIANTS game while working too! I have such fun at A's games.. I can only imagine being in SF THIS week!
The kitchen is unpacked and operable. MOST important. Not pretty... but its all in there. The rest of the house, filled to the brim with furniture and boxes. Ginger cant find her doggie door, and Rudy is stuffed into the front closet. ( door removed). I dont think he will last there, but we really couldnt find one single spot for the poor guy! I ll take a picture when I locate a camera:) I just put that on the list. Speaking of lists... I have never had a list so long! Top of the list being the shop stuff of course, but then... I was wondering why in the world this house is so dark everywhere BUT the studio. Guess what I discovered this morning? Some idiot painted the sky light in my room! No kidding! It is so dundgeony and NOW I know why! Maybe he worked graveyard or something, but its like a hotel room with darkening blinds and heavy drapes!
#1. STRIP skylight paint!
I received my first snail mail job yesterday and boy did I get excited! Another one of those times I wish that I could wiggle my nose and change all things as I want them. Rememeber when I said I need a break from quilting? I take it back!
I went back to Pismo yesterday to get another load and clean. I keep backspacing my type here, so i will just say.... OWWW, then CLIC:::geez I'm getting good at that::::
On that note Dear Blog readers, I shall take my bruised up self to the showers and begin again. Thank you for your caring emails and snail mails and Blima the very cool Lucky Eye for my new front door! I felt pretty "tuff" drill in hand hanging my Lion door knocker and my Blessing:). Avi asked what I was doing and I told her I was trying to find my muchness! She understood? lol
Love yer Guts, I'll be back

Glad you made it Gina but I have missed a post I guess. I missed where you were moving to! Thought I was on top of things but guess I'm not.

Moving sucks, but at least you get to go through your crap, get rid of stuff, and attempt to organize!

Hi Gina, I have been following your blog for some time. Glad to know you have landed. I just moved (from Arroyo Grande) in May. I'm 61. You are so right about post-menopausal moving. You'll get it together soon--just remember the Motrin.
