MOVING IS A BITCH.

I’m moving this week and it’s killing me, so instead of bleakness and existentialism I’m instead showing you cat pictures!  A day in the life of a cat, as performed by Hunter S. Thomcat:

ignore this.  It's for a post.
**********

And in other news, it’s time for the weekly wrap-up:

What you missed in my shop (tentatively called “Eight pounds of uncut cocaine” so that your credit card bill will be more interesting.):

This week on shit-I-didn’t-come-up-with-but-wish-I-did-because-it’s-kind-of-awesome:

This week’s wrap-up is sponsored by Sent Her Way.  (Men, avert your eyes.) From the creaters: “SentHerWay.com delivers tampons, pads, pantyliners for under $10 a month. You can customize by choosing the Brand, type and quantity you want.  We take the chore to the store out of your routine and we do it all with free shipping.” Slightly related: if I owned that store I’d call it “Oh, Stick It In Your Vagina” because it would be fun to answer calls that way.

But I would love it more if the company were called “Stick it in your vagina” because that’s true, and truth sells.

  13. Moving is never easy. I hate it. Basically because not only I need to reorganize everything once I open the boxes at the new place but also because I get tired half-way and end up leaving stuff in a box I’ll never open and will never know what’s inside. Although I do find some pretty handy stuff when I move, like last time, when I found a huge bag full of notepads. I don’t know where they are now, but I know they are here somewhere…

  17. #17 on the #depressionlies post hits home with me. I don’t have depression, but I have to avoid serial killers. I know, we should all avoid serial killers. But I used to be able to read about them, and I can’t now. I don’t know if it’s anxiety or what, but now I can’t read books or watch movies (true stories or fictional) without getting the scenes stuck in my head and wondering if one is waiting just outside of my range of vision. Going out to hang up the laundry can sometimes be very difficult.

  21. The entire reason I haven’t moved is that the thought of getting the house ready to list (it needs a new dishwasher, there’s some plumbing that needs to be done, a couple of ceiling fans have to be replaced, not to mention the major spring cleaning it needs) is so daunting, that to do all that stuff and then have to actually go through the move itself seems not worth it. Except, I really would like to move! I need to think of the process as a series of baby steps, I think, or it’s just too overwhelming to do any of it.

  23. Jenny,
    If your cats are anything like mine, and hate, hate, hate having to ride in the car, then you’ll understand that because my husband never takes them to the vet, and I do, and I know how hideous that car ride can be, that the most memorable moments of our last move were waiting until everything was out of the old house except the cats. So they were already riled up.
    We go to get them, and I try to prepare the husband, that this is going to be a traumatic ride. He doesn’t believe me. How bad can it be? he asked. (Silly man.)
    We’re in two cars. I say we really want to get on cat in one car, one cat in the other. We have a cat carrier, but they freak out and hide at the sight and fight like crazy not to get dumped inside. So we’re just going to toss them in the car and tough out the ride, only about 15 minutes.
    Well, he captures one, get it in his car. Ignoring my advice, when he captures the other, he just puts that one in his car, too.
    I tried to tell him. Man wouldn’t listen.
    He’s still traumatized by that ride, both cats yelling like he’s never heard them, climbing all over him, sinking their claws in.
    Just saying… if Victor’s been bad for any reason…

  101. Just wanted to thank you for linking to the tips… it was a good read, as was the rest of the chain of posts leading to it (even if the original happy people habits was a little infuriating).

    Was part of why I finally decided to start a blog myself, actually🙂

  102. So I looked up your political yard sign, because yard signs are prohibited in our neighborhood, and apparently I’m on some kind of crusade to see how far I can push all the covenants (um, yes, we do have a 9 foot big metal chicken in our backyard because last year was our 15th anniversary and I couldn’t find a 5 foot chicken–my husband “thanks” you, by the way). Since no one batted an eye (the neighbors love him–the chicken, not my husband, although, I’m sure they’re fond of him, too?), I figured a great yard sign would be welcomed, as well. Then I read the reviews of your yard sign:

    “It was exactly what was needed for this church. Size was right for their frame. The old sign was hand written and hard to read from the road.”

    And I thought, wow, Jenny really has the support of the church community (I did see you at your book signing at a church in KC). And now they are buying her signs. And they think her signs are EXACTLY WHAT IS NEEDED for their church. Nice work. 🙂 But I’m unclear which side they would be displaying. “This House Supports Awesomeness” or “Birds Are People, Too.”
