ONE MONTH AGO, we left North Carolina

Yes, kids, that is the milestone I promised you yesterday.  In some ways, it feels like it's been much longer than that.  In other ways, it feels like a month.  In NO way does it feel like "just yesterday."  I still have friends there, yes, but I was no longer employed, and most all of "my" stuff was either packed in a shipping container or in my car or tossed in the dumpster, and we hit the road without really looking back, once the cats were safely situated.

In other news, I HAVE A GIG that starts TOMORROW!  I'm on the call sheet as "Costumer," of all things.  I think what I really am is "Costume Dept. PA" but that's okay.  Part of this move was being willing to accept any job that I'm qualified to do, and boy, howdy, am I qualified to work in the Costume Department!  Woo Hoo!
****The producer who is bringing me on can only guarantee two days of work, but so-friggin'-what?  I intend to make them love me, so they'll want to keep me for longer than that.  Or just have a helluva good time for two awesome days and work on getting my next gig!

In other other news, here are some pics to entertain you:
We borrowed our on-site maintenance dude's circular saw to trim
the pieces we'd mis-measured and had cut originally @ Lowe's.
Then we OBVIOUSLY had to clean up all the sawdust! Duh!

I let Stephen do most of the actual "handiwork" of installing
the new bookshelves.  Now, he'll have the confidence to
continue if he's got the right tools at hand without "this tool."
Bookshelves, Part One.  Yes, this was taken from my POV.
Don't worry yourself over the fact I can't reach these.
I don't read.  Really.  I can read.  I just DON'T. :)

I built the salad while Stephen grilled the frozen chicken
thighs on the George Forman grill.  I have YET to find a
food that thing won't cook properly, and FAST!

Did I mention I have a GIG that starts tomorrow? w00t!


  1. Wow. Look at us. Employed people. Life is most certainly good, yes?

    1. I know. I was so happy when I learned of your employment, because I knew it meant my notification would soon follow.

      Life is most certainly good. :)


I LOVE your feedback; give it to me, Baby. Uh-huh, uh-huh.
