Monday, Monday
So here it is Monday again. Not that anyone is ever ready for Monday anyway, but what happened to Saturday and Sunday? Oh, I know - I worked them, thus why I don't feel rested and refreshed.

I gave up five hours Saturday to give Mrs. IOH's daughter the afternoon off. I didn't want to do that when she asked me the day before. She knows that we're in the middle of packing and moving. The weekends are my only time to do that. So I met her half way and worked five hours instead.

Brown-nosing. Yup, brown-nosing. Later this week I'm going to request a $1 raise to help go into my gas tank since we're moving one gallon of gas away. Making it two gallons per day to get to work and back. As long as the price of gas remains under $4.50 per gallon - I should break even.

Speaking of gas, I noticed a little sticker above the nozzle at the tank last week that read, "Contains 10% Ethanol." E10, they call it and it's some sort of congressional push to help ease our contribution to the environment. Even though it costs about the same amount of greenhouse gases to produce ethanol. My beef? Well, ethanol burns hotter thus causing less miles per gallon. Shucks. You'd figure at $3.70/gallon - we'd like to get the most miles out of our money spent.

Aw shucks. Anyhoo - not all is bad here on the home front. We're one week away from the final move. Despite working this past weekend I did manage to get a whole lot of packing done. My kitchen, which I saved for last was the most complicated part. Today, besides a few spare odd cups and plates plus the food in the fridge and pantry - it is finished.

All that remains are our computers, tv and other components. The washer/dryer and bed. Last but not least ourselves and our pets. The guinea pig "Piggy" is already in her new home and we'll be following very shortly.

I can't wait.

    Glad things are going smoothly with the move... that can be stressful. Will your phone number stay the same? HOPEFULLY, we can get over to Savannah sometime soon... I'll holler!

    Would it comfort you any to know that I feel your pain as far as moving is concerned? I am about a month away from moving my fiancee in with her brood to our home. I can't wait for that either but I sure do wish I had some magic fingers that I could snap to make it all happen without having to lift a finger. Good luck on your move.

    In some ways I envy your move,but then I remember when we moved nearly two years ago.Aspirin anyone? Good luck.

    I don't envy your move. I hated moving. But for you its a move up so I'm glad for you.

    Not to mention ethanol drives corn prices, and general food prices, up.

    Hi Margie,

    here's hopin' it's all smoothed out soon enough.
