Dunzo

The divorce was finalized this morning. We were first to see the judge (she wanted to get us done first since ours was uncontested, and the other divorce was contested), and it took all of 15 minutes. I had to answer a bunch of yes/no questions regarding the settlement agreement and divorce, the judge asked B a few questions since he didn’t have his own lawyer, she signed off on it, we got certified copies of the paperwork, done. I went right to the social security office to apply for my new SS card, that was done in about 10 minutes (small town FTW). I decided to not update my IL license, since I’m moving in less than 3 weeks.

I cried last night about the divorce, which is the first time in quite a few months. My poor friend Mitchell, he asks me what cartoons I like (we were instant messaging), and I say “I need a minute, I’m crying”. He’s probably thinking “all I did was ask her about cartoons. Why is she crying?”

Don’t know what I’m going to do tonight. My lawyer stressed I should find an available friend and go out for dinner, do something fun to offset the shit morning, but I’m in a mood where I feel like I’ll be bothering everyone, so I’ll probably just sit at home and watch TV.

Three weeks

So, I sent out a letter to all my clients Friday telling them I’m leaving. I’ve already had quite a few calls for appointments, so hopefully I’ll be a busy bee and make lots of money before I go!

I reserved a moving truck today. It’s funny how certain things make my stomach all fluttery. This was one of them. Then they told me how much it was going to cost to rent the truck, and I almost threw up. It’s obscene, that’s all I’m gonna say.

My poor kitty Lexie is not handling things well. I think she’s stressing from all the boxes/packing going on. She sticks by me like glue, and she has runny stools. I feel so bad for her.

For a knitting blog, I don’t seem to get any knitting done. And Stitch-In is tomorrow. I think I’ll try to get back to my Frost Flowers and Leaves shawl…

Four weeks!

That’s right! I’ll be moving in four weeks. I sent in the application for an apartment on Monday, they called today and said they have a unit on hold for me! I’m excited and nervous as hell.

I went to Stitches Midwest today, which was fun. The market was a lot smaller this year, and I didn’t buy very much. A skein of ribbon yarn, a mug with a little sheep and “Knit Happy” on it, and a few patterns. I brought my copy of Folk Shawls with and had Cheryl Oberle sign it. And I bought a few things for a friend on Ravelry.

They are filming an episode of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition in one of the neighboring towns, so our town’s been buzzing. Ty Pennington has been spotted at a few of our local eateries, and I heard he was at the baseball field pitching to the kids. Last I heard, David Duchovney is supposed to be coming out to work on the house at some point. I guess that’s a new thing for next season, having a celebrity come and work on the house.

We have a court date for the divorce, the 24th of this month. I am going to send my apartment application in on Monday, and talk to my dad and stepmom about setting a moving date! I am going to have a million things to do in the next month.

I really need to get some packing done this weekend. And try to get more boxes. The bookcase and DVD rack are empty, but that’s about it. Next up are the picture frames and knicknacks.

That gave me the warm fuzzies

As I am getting ready to start cleaning and packing my stuff, I’m trying to decide which stuff gets hauled and which stuff gets pitched. I have a cat perch (looked like this, but with two perches stair-stepped and no tunnel) that I know I want to get rid of, but figured it would be more of a hassle to try and sell it than it’s worth. Finally it hit me: donate it to the local animal shelter! I just dropped it off, along with a cat bed and a bunch of toys. Now a whole bunch of kitties will get use out of them. I smiled the whole drive home.
