It’s been a very long week.
Two weekends ago, Sunshine and I made the journey to my old house to empty it out. Y’see, it finally sold and closes in a couple of weeks…so with Easter just around the corner and not a lot of time to move everything out before the closing date, we decided to do it sooner rather than later.
Because the majority of the small things had already been moved (clothes, dvd’s, etc) and the majority of the items left over were being donated to my younger sister (so there wasn’t any real sense of “carefulness” when packing stuff like dishes), the move went a lot faster and smoother than my previous move a couple of years ago.
In fact, things were going so well that both Sunshine and I decided to go out on a date Saturday night. Things have been so crazy and hectic lately that we thought we needed to take some time out for ourselves. We went to a restaurant for a nice dinner and a couple of drinks. It was nice to get out for a couple of hours and just hang out together…we don’t do that nearly enough.
The next day my little brother showed up to help move the last of my things. I dropped 2/3 of my items off for my sister and then drove back home to Sunshine to unload the remaining items (my kitchen table set, my bedroom furniture set, etc).
That night I got sick. I could feel it coming on during the day, but was determined to not let it get to me until the move was over. When I woke up the next day, it all hit me at once.
Now I did my best to not end up with one of those “man colds” and whine and complain like a baby. But I’ve been sneezing and coughing and blowing my nose all friggin’ week and it’s done a few things:
- Made the “unpacking process” pretty much a dead issue.
- Made Sunshine want to take care of me MORE than she already does (because she’s awesome and all).
- Made my desire to blog about a 0%.
- Made the ability to have some “sexy time” with my gal less than normal. A LOT less.
So needless to say, I haven’t blogged all week and I haven’t enjoyed some of the perks of living with my one true love all week.
Thankfully, I’m finally feeling better.
