Looking Forward to Saturday Night

One would think that with a title like that, I have big plans for tomorrow night. But it is in fact the complete lack of plans that makes me happy.

We're in the process of moving right now. We're finally getting out of this duplex and moving on up to a full 3 bedroom house. Slowly moving towards our pre-Katrina state. The house that we're moving into is a palace compared to this place. I'm very happy about it even though my room has horrible wallpaper from the seventies with blue sailboats all over it. It's worse than what you're imagining, trust me. I'll post pics tomorrow. I like this house and it's right across the street from my Dad and Grandma. Could be a good thing I guess, but could be a bad thing....the latter is more likely.

The thing that I like about this house is that it's somewhat affordable for the salary I'm looking at when I graduate. So when my mom either rebuilds or buys another house, I can stay in this one. It would be perfect for me. Nice size master bedroom, and two small rooms which could be used as a guest bedroom and an office/library.

I can't wait to get all of my books back! They're all over the place since Katrina, and luckily Katrina didn't claim any of my books (took most of them with me). It will be so nice to fill a couple of bookshelves and then just sit back and admire my friends.

So that's why I'm excited about doing nothing tomorrow night. It's been a long week...feel like I got back from Florida a month ago, and it's only been four days. Stressful week at the hospital. Been moving all day today and tomorrow morning. Work tomorrow afternoon. And then I can sit back and enjoy my weekend, or what's left of it, in the privacy of my own room. What a nice feeling. It's funny what we take for granted until it's taken away. I guess Katrina did have it's good points if you can call it that. The name Katrina actually means a cleansing or to start anew. I found that to be very appropriate in a strange way. Funny how life works sometimes.

The act of moving is never a fun thing so I hope you're all settled soon and enjoying your new space. Can't wait to see the wallpaper pics and hope you can do something to rectify the situation soon.

We're done! I did my best with the wallpaper...it's so bad!
