Two. Fucking. Weeks.

That’s how long it took me to get home. Two whole weeks. This was supposed to be five days, maybe six. Oh, and I didn’t have any real internet access there because Poppa’s DSL connection refused to give me an IP address.

What took so long? I had to pack up a three-bedroom house predominantly by myself, cleaning as I went not so much as to make things pretty when I left as to just not carry all the dust, dirt, grime, and roaches back with me to Wyoming.

And then there’s the part with the ex-husband. I lost a couple of days dealing with that. I’m not even going to get into it now.

Currently, you can almost walk through my house. I got the kitchen unpacked today and integrated with our stuff. Tomorrow, I’ll do the living room.

Pluses:

* We have a new TV that works, complete with the AV box and stuff.
* Kira gave me two bottles of AWESOME homemade mead (cherry-vanilla and chocolate).
* We have dressers, shelves, tables, and chairs – much more comfy.
* The ancestral stuff is safe and sound, including pictures, hand-written journals, trinkets, knick-knacks, and cookbooks.
* I GOT MY KITTY KASHMIR BACK!!!

Minuses:

* Where the fuck are we going to put all of this stuff?!? Weren’t we trying to DEclutter the house?!?

At some point, I will rant and rave about what happened, but for now, suffice it to say that it was a nightmare, sheer hell, and I’m glad it’s over. A lot.

I loved seeing my Poppa, though, and Debbie and Bill and Elizabeth and Kira. Spent lots of time with Kira. That part was awesome.

I have to go finish the kitchen since it’s Thursday. More later, maybe.

  1. Hope you enjoy the mead!

    Someday this year that mead and other flavors will be a legal to sell in stores product.
    I hope to carry some of it up to your state as well. Pretty sure we can ship there.
    Sorry your trip was so long and laborious in parts. Glad you got to see K.
    Take care,
    J
