Bad moon waning

Looking back on my day...I may need to rethink my concept of "vacation day," but it was really productive.

I slept in until 7:30. Had a languorous time at coffee. Went back to the old place and cleared out that aforementioned closet. Went to hh gregg and got a new router, and - and! - my 30th birthday present. Yes, yes, I know I'm 31, almost 32, but when I turned 30 my parents had just bought their flat panel TV and wanted to buy me one, too. But, I was having a moment (I don't need that many TVs! TV must be rotting my brain!), and declined. I finally gave in, and found a cheap, off-brand, but nice one today (along with my router, which was on clearance. Woo-hoo!). I came home and hooked it up, and I'm in loooove.

Yeah, I've totally gotten over my hoity-toity moment of anti-TV-ness.

I unpacked a couple of boxes and rearranged the living room. I showered (I was stinky) and changed and then I took my mom to the oncologist, and he's pleased (me too). We picked up dinner and I hung out with them for a little while. And then my aunt and uncle came over to the new place and we got the washer/dryer hooked up, a bookcase moved, some pictures hung, and a couple of other things fixed. And then I started another load of laundry and moved the TV in my bedroom and then I FINALLY got the router working.

Whew.

I'm starting to feel like the bad juju of the old place is clearing. I've started reading books about feng shui (it ties in with my psychoanalytic bend towards energetics, as it turns out). I may yet be getting my groove back.

And it's about damn time.

HM! All good things come to those who wait---with patience---and WOO HOO----WOO HOO

Tvland-----reading--and surely knitting which is a "mental therapy" for some of "us"

And happy days for Mom--and dad too I think.

And just think 4th of July is this weekend--Long may it wave.
Need to see James Cagney in Yankee Doodle Dandy----OLD OLD MOVIE---but oh so good.

Then PBS somewhere on the TV should have the concert with the Boston Pops----a tradition.

Enjoy Carol
