A huge wrench in the plan...

Today was supposed to be an exciting day...our last day in our loft before moving into our new house tomorrow...until we got the call that we won't be getting keys until the 5th (next Tuesday).  Not cool.  As if this whole process wasn't stressful and lengthy enough, we now have this.  We both had 3 days off work to move, clean, paint, rip up carpet, and many other projects.  We've transferred electric/gas, cable, and water.  We scheduled movers, carpet installers, and hardwood installers.  I've been moping around all morning mad at the world but I'm realizing thats not going to change the situation.  As Rollie (the always positive amazing hubby) said this morning... at least we are getting the house, right?! Right.  It's just going to make for a very interesting week next week.  I have a busy 3 day Holiday weekend coming up at work and already took today off to sign papers (which is now happening tomorrow) and finish packing.

A writing exercise borrowed from another blog I frequent...

If I was a month, I would be October. If I was a day, I would be March 14, 2009. If I was a time of day, I would be sunset. If I was a season, I would be fall. If I was a sea creature, I would be a starfish. If I were an emotion, I would be affection.


If I was a country, I would be America. If I was an item in a house, I’d be a candle.
If I was a drink, I would be red wine. If I was a tree I would be a cherry tree . If I was a flower, I would be a lavender. If I was weather I’d be blue sky with white puffy clouds. If I was a fruit I would be pineapple. If I was a color I’d be celadon.

If I was a dish I would be chocolate lava cake with vanilla ice cream.

If I was a taste I would taste salty. If I was a song I’d be no women, no cry. If I was a pair of shoes I would be havaiana flip flops. If I was a sound I’d sound like the waves.
