first time home buyerSo sorry I’ve been away from blogging for so long (ok, so I *do* regret that…), but I have a super-good reason; we went a little crazy and bought our Very First House! These last two months have been an absolute whirlwind of house showings and offers and more paperwork than I could have EVER imagined, never mind the mind-boggling amounts of money that we have spent on all of the things required when purchasing a home…gahhh! And now with the packing up of our current home, which I am mostly in charge of, it’s been a veritable parade of boxes and garbage bags. It’s not easy to condense an 11-year relationship’s worth of “stuff”into a manageable amount; the packing is the easy part! But we will get ‘er dun, and I am so looking forward to leaving renting life behind forever!

Having said that, I have a certain tendency to shirk my packing duties when I get bored, or tired, or overwhelmed, and I go do something else for a while until I’m ready to tackle the piles of stuff again. Which is why I am writing a blog post instead of packing. No judgement. One other thing I tend to do is surf the Net, which my ever-loving Hubster calls “trolling the LolCats”.  Sometimes I find some verrrry interesting things (ever spend hours, square-eyed, staring down a Tumblr or Reddit rabbit hole? I can now proudly say that I have, several times over the last few weeks); in addition, when I’m especially tired, or stressed, I find my resistance to the blandishments of “shiny things” is somewhat lowered.

Soooooo…my credit card is not going to be happy with me, but these two t-shirts need to become part of my life. Jonathan Coulton is hilarious, and I’ll be buying his mp3 albums as soon as I can afford ALL OF THEM.

I really need to get back to packing. But I still want these things. Someone kick me in the slats and tell me to get back to packing, already! ;o)
