For the limited number of people that actually read my blog, you might have noticed that I have blogged like twice in the last 10 days. And for anyone that can't go a day without reading my blog, you took a much needed sigh of relief when you saw my 'I'm alive' post. (I just like to think that some 52 year old guy in Alaska with no life is obsessed with my blog...it makes my day). Well, we moved just shy of 2 weeks ago, and life has been a blur since.
For starters, my mother and I moved everything but heavy furniture by ourselves. We thought it would save money and in the long run I'm sure it did, but my God it was bad. Anyone familiar with Nebraska's lovely moist, sweltering heat knows the hell that it would be to spend a full 3-day weekend loading up a big ass U-haul truck (4 TIMES!) with only your 54 year old mother who is in no way built for that kind of labor, leaving you to do the shit end of it all.
I tried to put off the inevitable..I was hounded non-stop the last couple of days in the old house, and could barely take a piss without my mother around the corner asking, "When are you going to pack up that damn computer"? Amazingly enough, I was able to keep it up and running until the house was empty and it was either take it or leave it. Then came the fun part.
Way back when I had my internet access at my finger tips, I agreed to the idea of not having internet hooked up until we got settled into our new home (ie. 2-3 months). Well it turns out that someone who goes from using the internet everyday to not being able to touch it for days on end is very much similar to a drug detox program. The first few days I preoccupied myself with moving into the house, though it was on my mind constantly. Then came the sleepless nights where the only few minutes of sleep ended in a very uncomfortable cold sweat.
It was horrible. I was cut off from EVERYTHING! I read my news online, so I was not in the 'know' with things. Not to mention, we don't have television yet either, so that made it even worse! I actually had to do things like clean house, read, socialize...these are untread grounds for me.
I'm at my grandma's house right now, but now that school has started I can use the computer lab to regroup and collect myself. Plus now that I should be getting back into regular posting mode, you'll be rolling on the floor with all the funny shit that has happened while moving. So take off your shoes, put on your sweater jacket and sit down cuz it nothing but good times ahead!
Happy sailing to all
