Jason, Murphy and I have successfully moved into our new house with a lot of help from a moving company and fueled by Domino’s Pizza. I kind of hate that I had pizza two days this weekend, but I’m trying to not let it bother me. I mean, when there’s no food in the house and you’re tired from making four trips (20 minutes each way) to and from the old house, delivery pizza is kind of the best option. I just wish this mass pizza consumption wasn’t occurring 4 weeks before my wedding.

We used a moving company (Two Men and a Truck) and let me tell you, it was the best $350 that I’ve spent in a long time. Okay, it was probably the only $350 that I’ve spent in a long time. Well, besides the money we spent on the house! It was tiring enough just moving some little stuff, I can’t imagine how awful it would be to move all of our furniture. It took the movers about 2.5-3 hours, though they only charged us for 2.5 for some reason. They also gave us three men for the price of two. Very positive reviews here for that particular moving company.

The whole move thing has been very unnerving for Murphy. I don’t know if he thinks we’re leaving him or what. But he’s been wild. Lots of barking and running around the house, jumping on me. Last night, he wouldn’t leave my side. He seems to be more adjusted this morning. I told him a million times that we’re not leaving him, we live here too. Sometimes I really forget that my dog doesn’t understand English.

Today is going to consist of unpacking and probably making a few purchases. One thing about the house that bothers me is that it’s not that clean. I guess when you’re not renting and trying to get your security deposit back, you aren’t as concerned with bleaching the tub and stuff. I mean, it’s not like they left trash or anything, but there is just some dirt. It’s weird, when it’s my dirt, it doesn’t bother me that much, but when it’s other people’s dirt, ewww. I spent a good half hour scrubbing down the fridge last night.

Pictures to come after we get the place in order. Unfortunately, my laptop won’t turn on and that’s where I normally upload pictures to and blog from. I think the battery might need to be replace. Ugh.

Happy Memorial Day!

Change of Plans

By some miracle, the bank got their shit together and we were able to close today. So we are now homeowners!!! And the bank paid the lender’s fee for our troubles!

Homeownership apparently means Mellow Mushroom pizza. I didn’t eat lunch until 4 pm which is pretty much unheard of for me! I had three slices of the Mega-veggie pizza (no banana peppers and light cheese).


Before lunch, we had to go to this building in Decatur to get our water turned on. After I filled out the application, they informed me that I owed them $40. From 2006!! I had no idea. I wonder when they would have sent a collection agency out for me.

No workout happened today. I got a 3 mile run in on Wednesday and the p90x yesterday so I figure I’m fine. I’m going to try to run again tomorrow and then who knows on Sunday because of the move.

This is a short post, but we’re going over to some friends’ house to celebrate our homeownership.

My Day

This is what my day has been like:

7:35 – wake up. mad because we were supposed to close today and if we had, i could have slept later. also mad because, well, we were supposed to close today.

9-10:30 – frantically check email to see if there is any mention of closing tomorrow.

10:30ish – get text from Jason saying that they’re going to have to delayed closing FOR A FUCKING WEEK!! (the fucking part was my addition, he didn’t say that in the text) Stupid bank’s system has been down for a week. Apparently bank has no sort of back up system.

10:32- cry. at my desk. call my mother in tears.

10:35 – escape to office bathroom to wash my face and pretend that it’s not all red and blotchy.

12 – decide i need to get my eyebrows waxed and pedicure. not sure why having someone rip out my hair with hot wax is a reward.

1 – call moving company, cancel movers. call utilities, tell them not to transfer service yet

2 – reside to the fact that we aren’t moving this weekend. become somewhat grateful that we still have a place to live and won’t be kicked out on June 1st.

2:05 – think about dinner

4:42 – think about dinner more.

4:43 – realize that if we’re not moving this weekend, I have absolutely no plans. worry that i might be bored. wonder if friends will be in town. wonder if friends with pools will be in town. realize that i packed my bathing suits.

4:45 – realize someone got me a bedspread. Am sure it was my mother.

6 – realize that we have no food and go to random pita restaurant with jason. eat pita.


7 – decided that we need frozen yogurt. go to tcby since it’s closer. realize that tcby < yoforia. Wish we'd gone to yoforia.

9 – P90X. Shoulders and arms. Cuss out Tony Horton.

Stressed Out Mac

I’ve been extremely stressed out as of late. What else is new, right? The latest cause of my stress is a certain bank that rhymes with Skank of America who’s entire loan processing system has crashed therefore making it impossible to close on my house tomorrow. I don’t even want to talk about it. I just about cried at my desk today.

I’m still hoping that we’re going to move this weekend, so I’m still trying to clean out the cabinets for meals. So I ended up with a bowl of Annie’s Mac and Cheese with some frozen veggies stirred in.

I actually really like mac and cheese but it’s one of those things where I can eat the entire box easily, so I don’t make it that often. I used Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk because that’s all we had and I couldn’t tell the difference.


I think that organic Mac and Cheese is one of those faker healthy foods. Yes, the pasta is organic, but it’s still enriched flour and there is still some sort of powdered cheese. I like the taste, but I don’t pretend that it’s a healthy meal.

I used to love Mac and Cheese as a kid. I have a lot of memories of eating it for dinner with a mug of milk. What kind of foods do you remember loving as a kid?
