Apartment Stuff and Other Things

There is still a lot to do in this apartment but I have got started on it. For a few days after I moved back, I really did nothing because there seemed so MUCH to do I literally couldn’t get myself to start. Then a day or so ago, I forced myself to start, and once I had emptied the old-and-gigantic cooler, things seemed better. However, there is still a huge and unsorted pile of art stuff scattered here and there. This still depresses me a little since although there was still a huge pile before the water got in, it was, at least all in one place!

This coming Saturday, I am going to a three hour workshop on making an art journal. It is at a place I have never been before so finding this place will be an adventure. I have never kept an art journal and never seen the value of them for me, mostly, I think because I do a huge amount of prep work in my head before I start with the paint, and even then,  by its very nature most of what I do opens up to me as I do it. However, I am open to trying new things so I may find that an art journal is a useful tool for me. Anyway, today I have physical therapy {NOT in the pool} so tomorrow’s job will be finding out where this place is and finding a journal to take with me! Hmmm, I knew EXACTLY where the blank journals were before the flood… I was just thinking about maybe going out to buy one if I couldn’t find the one or two I have when I suddenly realized I have no idea where to get one here. And that if I were back in Vermont, I would know exactly where to go…

In a total change of subject, I finally got round to updating my GPS. It will be interesting to see if there are any changes because there were a couple of small errors before I updated it. You might remember I mentioned that it sends me in the wrong direction for a short time when I go to buy groceries. One thing I have already noticed is that it wants me to take the first entry into the complex where I live whereas before the updating, it took me to the second entry which is actually the shortest way to where my apartment is!

OK, it is almost 8 AM. I have been up an hour so I am now off to investigate the subject of breakfast…

Breakfast sounds like a good idea. Hmm, I know that Cheap Joes is somewhere in NC, but I have no idea exactly where. I’m certain that there must be something close by to you.

How disheartening to have to unpack TWICE in the first few months. I hope you find your journals. Maybe in the process of looking, you’ll get another box or two emptied.

I am always overwhelmed and depressed by unpacking!
