Wednesday holiday=weird

216.4 (thanks, Chinese food)

It seems really odd to have a holiday in the middle of a work week. I suppose because things are usually contrived to make Fridays or Mondays federal holidays. As a government employee, I am, of course, off tomorrow. It just feels strange.

I have started to feel a bit stressed about my upcoming move. I am starting a new job in another city in less than 3 weeks, and I have no idea where I'm going to live in that city! I haven't started packing at all. . . though God knows I should and I have a sh1tload for crap to sort through. . . I never fully unpacked from my move in mid-April.

I am going to drive up to Phoenix on Saturday and my best friend KC & I are going to spend all day looking at apartments. I hope to have something lined up before I drive home Saturday night.

Perhaps once I have a place lined up, I will feel more inclined to get on top of the sorting and packing. I am going to pay movers--because, let's face it, who wants to move ever, let alone in late July in southern Arizona--so I have an additional incentive to get rid of some crap before I move.

I can certainly stay with KC for a week or two (or three) if necessary. The only downside to that plan is that Sebastian can't stay there, as KC's dog doesn't like him. Sebastian could stay with my old roommate KW & her husband, but then we would be separated. That probably wouldn't affect Sebastian much, but it would make me sad. Plus, I couldn't impose Sebastian on KW indefinitely.

Anyway, putting off the move much longer than a week or two is just postponing the inevitable. It's not like I'm not eventually going to move to Phoenix, and it's not going to get any easier to do it if I wait longer.

I have my long-awaited lunch with J tomorrow. I am hoping for the best, and I have tried to prepare myself for the worst. It's just lunch, so I really should chill. Better to obsess over that than about my unplanned move, though, I guess. LOL

Aye, aye, aye.
