Pack O Matic

Man... I am GLAD to be getting out of here soon, and glad for the new kid. Today was a royal pain in the butt at work.

The network crash wasn't just a hub. It took both of us techhies all day and we still had to take the band-aid approach to fixing it. Definitely not the preferable route! But the new kid is sharp enough to rebuild the Linux router from scratch (and will probably have to do so.) I don't have the time, frankly, so our makeshift solution will have to do until she makes time.

The Payson element is talking to me literally every day now, calling at work or calling at home or both. I'm busting my chops and still not sure how to stretch my budget to get a car and keep enough gas money to get there. I am trying to pack in another week's worth of training into two days now, and still have barely BEGUN to pack to move!

The one thing in my favor is the fact that I don't have a lot of stuff TO pack. I'm going to do the yard sale thing Saturday - it's not even optional NOT to do it now. And the washing machine goes up for sale. That's really the only big-ticket item I'll be selling. The rest is mainly little stuff.

I'm going to have to get my heine in action tonight though. I need to go ahead and start packing my clothes, everything I don't have to have RIGHT NOW.

Before - After

In the grander scheme of things, no soul can truly be replaced. Each one of us has a place in the universal tapestry. We each contribute our own color and texture. When one thread is snipped too soon, it distorts all the threads around it. Other lives can unravel and tear. If the wrong thread is ripped away, the whole fabric of life becomes dangerously fragile.
