I need a forklift and a donut.......

Hi ya'll,

I feel like I am living in a storage warehouse.

This brat has the nerve to take a nap after waking me up at 5 this morning.

Don't you just love what I've done with the entry way?

The office?

The bedroom?

This was Cavuto's idea. It only adds to the splendor, don't you think?

I am waiting for quotes on how to get this crap to England. 5 lousy boxes......that's all I plan to send. UPS wants over a thousand dollars to send 5 boxes!I think NOT!

USPS...2 of my boxes are too big for them. I TRIED like hell to pack light. Then i repacked and packed even lighter .I am down to about 8 pairs of shoes.......can you imagine living an entire winter with 8 pairs of shoes?4 coats, 6 sweaters, and 3 scarves. ?

Ha!I can not fathom such a thing.

I am also nervously awaiting word on my Visa application. We sent them a copy of ,pretty much ,our entire lives. Surely nothing can go wrong. Right?

On a lighter note.....after about 3 months of starving and giving up happy hours ,I have finally lost about 5 whole pounds. Woot!
Anybody else would have been a toothpick by now.At this rate I should be thin by the time I die of old age.

Have a great day today!

Luv me

I remember the days when I had to deal with packing and relocating. It's a pain in the backside. You live in a sea of boxes for weeks before. Then you live in a flurry of "where is it? Did I pack it? What was I thinking?" for weeks afterward. Kid, I feel your pain!

Congrats on the weight loss!

I got on a scale the other day and it spazzed out and landed on 189 - meaning I've gained over 10 lbs since July. I need to put the cookies down.

I'm interested in your 'Rules Britania' book - is it a guide book? other? -

Note: if you post a pic on here I WILL double click it and blow it up and look in your underwear drawer. You've been warned.

Congrats on the 5 lbs! Persistence pays off. Lookin at all that packing makes my back hurt. 8 pair of shoes, 3 scarfs? You can wear only 1 at a time. ? I would take 1 scarf and buy 2 over there. England also has thrift stores and you can flip the end of a scarf at us and say ' I got this in England." Anyway, congrats on the great progress. I hope you continue your blog from the other side of the pond. G5

If a cat woke me up at 5 am I would keep an eye on the cat all day and whenever he curled up to take a nap I would jab him with my finger. It would be interesting to see how tired he would get by midnight. Then let him sleep and I guarantee you he would not be up at 5 am. Dogs, on average, sleep 14 hrs a day, cats sleep 16. G5
