Unforeseen Circumstances

Life has a way of never working out like I had planned. After months of planning, and weeks of packing, I finally got everything moved into the new place and was looking forward to the new adventure of investigating a new city and living with a friend and befriending her adorable dog and kitty.

Unfortunately, my severe allergies had other ideas. The first night, I noticed my typical allergy symptoms developing. Severe headache, itchy and watery eyes,sneezing, sinus congestion and a runny nose were making me miserable. So, I vowed the next day to run out and get allergy meds. The next day, armed with Zyrtec, I was sure it would help and was feeling optimistic.

Almost There!

Well, this is the week. I finished up my work week early and I'm off until Monday. Which is a good thing because I'll desperately need that time to make sure I've got everything in order.  My living room is now littered with boxes, mostly full of books, but some of DVDs and my vinyl collection. I've spent this afternoon packing up the books. Even with only part of my collection here, it still took me the better part of the evening to get it all sorted and packed up.
