Relocation is official!

The big day finally arrived. We are officially living in Bryan-College Station (known by the locals as BCS). We have been moving and unpacking since Saturday.

The move was absolute hell! Everything that could go wrong that way did. Cars didn't start, people didn't show up to help, things took longer than we thought... it was an overwhelming and totally annoying experience! Then when we got here we realized that not everything in the floor plan is in the apartment.The thing I was most excited about was having a food pantry, but alas, when we got here there was no such pantry *sad face*. The bathrooms were a bit different than the floor plans too. For some reason the master bedroom is smaller than the spare room. I am assuming it is the master bedroom since it has a bathroom attached  But now that it is just the two of us and things are more laid back I am really starting to like it here. We totally have the kitchen unpacked. The internet, cable, and the XBOX is set up. We went to the grocery store and got the food all put away plus the clothes are now unpacked! We see light at the end of the tunnel!!!

I unpacked my office space. I now have my PC set up and can go back to blogging, tweeting, and facebooking. I am really settling in here. I love it! The locals seem really freaking nice - almost creepy nice. The co-eds will soon storm the gates and I am sure things will change. I will keep you posting on the impending doom.

Sorry this is so short tonight. I am still unpacking and I just wanted to post an update.

From The "What The Hell Was She Thinking" Files...

I woke up this morning to news reports that a mother here in Texas killed her two children because they had autism. I found the link to 911 call on a local TV station's website. I would love to read your comments on this one!

As a mother that has a case of the crazies I am mortified. My daughter lives with my mother because I am terrified I will go off the deep end and be one of these women that make the news. I made sure my child was safe. I am also flabbergasted that no one saw the signs. No one noticed she was about to break? I don't know if I feel bad for her or want to strangle her the way she strangled her kids. She deserves punishment - but what kind?

Running Out of Time

I am facing my own procrastination - again. This is nothing new. I am a HUGE procrastinator, I always think oh I have plenty of time - but I wait until the last minute anyway. I am running out of time to pack. I have a lot packed, but the more I pack the more I find to pack. Is this the way it always is?

I went to the doctor yesterday and got back on my ADHD meds. It is nice to be able to focus and get stuff done! I packed the kitchen today. All in one day, all in a few hours!! It was awesome!!!!

I also have some pretty good news last night. I have figured a way around my financial issues and I am going to get to go to school this semester! I am so excited! I really wanted to go back to school. I miss it so much. Now that I have my ADHD meds back there is nothing to hold me back! I will register next week. I am happy :)

So 5 days until moving day when our lives change forever. I am looking forward to it - but I am scared to death!!

A Day at the Beach...

I spent a day relaxing at the beach with my daughter and mother this past weekend; the trip there was anything but relaxing!

It all started with a freeway closure due to construction. People cutting others off and honking their horns as if the poor person in front of them could move another inch. Some people are so stupid! I don't understand why a traffic jam makes people turn into idiots.

Then I stopped for gas. I HATE PUMPING GAS! I absolutely hate it more than anything. So I had to pump gas. Then afterwards I got a bit lost trying to find the entrance back onto the freeway. My ADHD kicked in and I was looking in one direction and I breezed through a stop sign. Oops! I waved an apology as I drove by the car waiting at the stop sign. I am cute - that should've been enough right? WRONG.

The car behind the car I apologized to decided to chase me down. Yes ladies and gentlemen, he chased me down! The moron raced up beside me and started screaming at me to pull over, at least I think that is what he asked between all the swearing. He chased for the better part of a mile until I pulled into a crowded parking lot - oh yeah friends, it gets better!

I pulled in behind a cop car - I am one smart cookie! I park behind the cop and sit in the car. The moron, blinded by pure rage, got out of his car and walked up to my car window and started yelling about how I could have killed him and how I was irresponsible and a stupid woman driver.
I don't think he ever saw the police officer step out of his car. The officer arrested him right there. Slammed the cuffs on him.

The rest of the day was relaxing. I sat on the shore and collected rocks and beach glass. I got sunburned despite my sunscreen, and at a great burger from a burger shack on the beach. It ended up being a very relaxing day.

Back to the Land of the Living

I have been really busy...well that is a lie. I have been busy with watching TV, sitting on my ass, and playing Lego Batman. To tell the absolute truth blogging has been the furthest thing from my mind for quite some time.

I have been turning my energy inward; trying to get my head on straight to go back to school. The new meds are working wonderfully. If I knew nothing about biochemistry, I would tell everyone to run out to their doctors and get a prescription for Effexor. I feel more clear headed than I have in years, if not entire decades! I am stronger, I am calmer, and best of all I am me again!!

Yesterday I got some news I wasn't expecting. Seems I won't be going to Blinn in the Fall as hoped. Financial issues and my past have come to bite me in the proverbial ass. It will be okay though. I can be a full time house monkey like I wanted to be in the first place. I got my wish - so why, my friends, was I so unbelievably sad?

After a bit of contemplation, it is actually not a bad thing.I will be able to go in the Spring semester, school is not a total loss. I am choosing to look at this as the universe's way of telling me that I am not yet ready for school. I still have some healing to do, and that is okay.

So I have decided it is time for Jenny to come back to the land of the living. I am going to open up again and give the universe the opportunity to do what it has planned.

Plus, we move in a little more than a week. I have all of 2 boxes packed. I mean I have a WHOLE WEEK! What's the rush, right? I have to move back to the land of the living if I am going to pull off this move.

It is for the best, I need to find things to do with my time anyhow seeing as the XBOX is on the fritz.
