I still love my Eagles, even when they suck.  I just wish they were a little better...

But, I took my parents to the MNF game against the panthers for their christmas gifts.  I actually had a really good time even though we lost (ugh, seriously, we lost to the freaking panthers...)

It was my mom's first professional game so I just wish we could have won to make it even better.

Isn't she super cute?

I am feeling all full of impotent rage at Comcast.  So angry!  Grrr!  (I'm shaking my fists in rage right now as I am saying Grrr).

So, instead of dealing with Mr. Jerkyface on the phone that I just hung up on (literally the first time in my life I have ever hung up on someone for real), I will show pictures of my kitchen and dining room (the other rooms are still a work in progress with decorating so you have to wait for those).

The darker picture is the dining room.  The other two are the kitchen.And the one is a picture of my new clock in the kitchen that I pretty much love.  I attempted to put them in order and blogger said no.  Sorry.

Fun times.

Super tired...

So I moved Saturday with some help from my amazing family and friends.

Unpacked Sunday. 

I am going to IKEA Monday for a few items (no dad, I apparently didn't have enough furniture).  And building the furniture then relaxing on Tuesday.

Just in time to go back to work on Wednesday.


Hopefully I can post some pictures before then.  I'm happy with it so far.  Just need to figure out what kind of pictures to hang up!

(And make my dad come visit again to help hang up some of the bigger items)

So I kind of fell off the face of the earth there. 

I just have to say, whoever thought moving and starting a new job at work at the same time was a genius.  Genius. 

I'm slightly overwhelmed at the moment.  I'm working my new job and still covering my old job, which means I'm working an average of 12-14 hour days.  And while I don't really LIKE doing that, it wouldn't be so bad if I didn't live over an hour away from work and needed to also pack up my entire house to move this Saturday. 

Like I said.  Genius!

But, there is a light at the end of the tunnel.  I move Saturday and then I will only be about ten minutes from my job.  I was contacted to be on the interview panel for my old job, which means they posted the job and eventually plan to hire someone to take my place, so these 14 hour days will eventually stop.  And, all this packing and cleaning and heavy lifting has been a great work out (which is awesome since I've sucked at the whole going to the gym thing lately).  Also, I threw out a crap ton of stuff (I'm not really sure how I have anything left to pack) so yay fighting my hoarder tendencies!

Anyways, hope everyone is still doing well!  I probably won't remember to post again until after the move, so happy thanksgiving ¡

Don't pay no mind to the demons, they fill you with fear.*

My arms are covered in bruises.  I apparently am an idiot that doesn't know how to walk through a doorway at work with out walking into a door knob.  But seriously, they hurt.

I am in charge of putting together our monthly recognition meeting at work.I actually got a recognition this month.  Which I discovered when I had to include my write up in the presentation.  Just a little awkward/weird.

I move in about three weeks.  It's kind of freaking me out how quickly thats coming and how ready I am not.  Ugh, packing this weekend.

Yay elections are done!  Seriously, I don't think I could have handled one more political ad or post on facebook.  I find it makes me judge my friends very negatively when we have differing political views (or at least the ones that posted statements saying "only stupid people support so and so").  But, yay! They're done!

I have a super cute new second (first? Not really sure?) cousin.  I haven't met him yet, but from the pictures alone I just want to pinch his cheeks and squee at how cute he is.

Not too much else going on.  I'm spending a lot of time working lately (I'm currently doing my old job and new job and it takes a lot of time to do two full time jobs).  I miss sleeping.

Hope everyone else is having a fantastic week!

Longwood Gardens

J and I took Little V and Ferb to the botanical gardens today. 

Ferb and I bonded a bit more.  And by that, I mean he pretty much fell asleep on me all day.  What a cutie pie. 

It was a great day with my sister and both her kids.  They're all so much fun to hang out with. :)
