Wondered where you were! Had to move again, huh? What a pain!

It was virtually painless. I've been living in a house with other people and had to delay getting my own place until I had a secure job. That happened last month and due to my unruly attitude toward life (rules, I don't follow no steekin' rules!), it was increasingly clear I couldn't contine in the shared housing though it was cheap. So I have my own place now with my own kitchen, all my stuff out of storage (you don't want to know how many bins of yarn that is...), can have anyone over any time, and all kinds of other benefits. And it was a lot easier than moving everything to another state like I did last summer. Even though there was a snowstorm the day before.

Gracious day! MOVED??? And back online already, even with internet troubles? You inspire me, Sue!

I'd turned my home office into a knitting room (knitting machines are portable, but just barely.), and now I'm breaking the machines down and converting back into an office. Feels almost like a move, only it's just one room. Goodness, the stash I've acquired is truly frightening...

At least I have a desk again after a day of cleaning/organizing/storing! Maybe tomorrow I'll have a floor too.

It was only a mile from my previous place, plus getting some stuff out of my storage unit. One pickup load from each with a guy to help, and several trips with my car that were spread over several days. I still have some stuff to get out of storage - as soon as I put away what's in the new place - and I don't have to be out of there for 3 weeks. I don't mind across town moves, with an overlap it just takes a couple car loads per day for a week or so.

The best part (besides the privacy, and all) - I get to control the thermostat and aren't freezing my little knitting fingers off!!!

Oh good! I can't imagine not being able to control that.

My daughter's apt (in DC) has weird thermostat situation, too. At some point in the spring and fall they turn on and off the a/c. With the weather iffy in those seasons she sometimes freezes or suffers the heat..and she's on the 8th floor. She can turn it off and on herself, but once the a/c is gone it's gone and she can only control the temp so much. Strange.

Thank heavens it wasn't a bad move for you. And what a perk for you - temperature control rocks!

Privacy and control of the thermostat. Good. It sounds like a good move. I'm glad for you.

Woo hoo! My home office has a desk, and a floor, in view (both clean finally ), and the yarn & machines are stored in the guest bedroom.

Even though my guest bedroom is only fit for miniature barnyard animals at the moment I think it's time to treat myself to a bit of rest and fibernation....

I say we all stop what we're doing and knit a spell. We'll feel much better for it.
