Yes. I should have shared them in person though... did not feel good this morning. But I worked it off, my friend P and I got a LOT of stuff moved over today. We packed her SUV to the gills and only two boxes - out of 20!- didn't make it. We also took the largest and most fragile pictures from my walls (those went in my car).

My friend A met us at the new place and helped unload and then we had lunch. Boyfriend called at least three times during this, I lost track. He was mad at her because she'd already missed a couple of calls from him today and he hates it when she doesn't answer her phone. Lame excuses like being asleep, walking the dog in the rain, or having her hands full of boxes don't fly with him.

That boy is highly insecure. Any idea what his last girlfriend was like or is she in Peru?

Has A met his family?

HA! Come visit me, I'm sure I can arrange it. Oh, wait, no... it'll get rescheduled 9 times and you'll be back in MN by the time he drags ass up here again.

You guys have an annual MVP? That's pretty cool. Does the title come with cash?

I hope your friend starts to value herself more and gets rid of this guy.

Yes, an annual thing. I think the bonus is $1500? The monthly one gets $100 or $150, I forget which. Plus, a nice plaque goes up in the office, AND a mailing goes out to all our clients, and theyh include the winner's former professors and mentors from college.

Sup.
:)

I got the kitchen and both bathrooms cleaned and unpacked today. My friend A was a huge help. And I replaced the battery in a chirping smoke detector (of course that's going to happen on the second day of my lease, haha).

The weekend security guard in my new building has been supremely helpful. I'll have to get him something for the holidays. That would be normal, right? I've never lived in a manned building before.

T-minus 4 days until the official move.

I give something to teh security guys in my office building. Ask some of the other tenants what they do. There may be a holiday kitty for all support people

Somehow I don't believe that.
Of course I would never call my children worthless scum. There is such a thing as unconditional love. However, I don't have unconditional love for other people's children. I fail to see why I should.
