I've pecked at the bills today but didn't complete them, tossed out the rotten watermelon hiding in the crisper but ignored the soggy tomatoes....and named my new wash machine (It's so big it deserves a name.....hmmm...I think a man told me the same thing once.)
Maybe I've been on too many college campuses lately....and the idea of a small room filled with lots of books, interesting classes, food-to-go and group chats or parties most nights.....seems idyllic. I could live like that....I think I did once....maybe I want a chance to do it all over again.
My trip to Ohio already seems like weeks ago. I left a happy daughter in a cute apartment with a new cat to keep her company. The Firemen movers turned out to be amazing even though they weren't exactly calender boys.
Actually one of the movers was buff and cute....almost Chippendale material . He was the fireman ( and checked my daughter's smoke alarm before he left) and this was his off-duty business.
His three coworkers though.....were definitely NOT from the brotherhood. One was short and looked like Popeye. Another was skinny with missing front teeth and the last one was pasty with a long blond ponytail and a dirty towel draped around his neck.
What they lacked in looks they made up for in moving experience and stamina.....they whipped couches, dressers and chairs out the door so quickly and with such ease......my daughter and I stood back in awe....and when they moved a massive oak table through a narrow doorway and up two flights of stairs ....we clapped.
Well I should unpack my suitcases or at least attempt to....for some reason the TSA has found one of them to be very interesting....I have a shiny sticker on my flight tag and a brochure stuffed in the outside pocket of my bag telling me the bag been searched and cleared.....wonder if that garter belt I bought from Victoria's secret was momentarily considered a threat to national security...
Here's a couple of nice visuals from the trip:
My daughter and her amazing neon pink mortarboard (at ground level you could not tell the top was colored)
Jack...aka Jumpin' Jack Flash....newly adopted cat from the humane society.... on his way to a pampered life.....with my daughter.
