Garfield Was Never This Controversial

I was going to write about the Obama cartoon in The New Yorker, but I don't really have the energy. Plus, I have a feeling that I am in the minority on this, and I am not in the mood to be picking any fights. I will happily discuss it outside of this forum (including my brilliant insight into why this has touched a nerve with Obama's supporters so acutely), but I don't see it as a subject that really lends itself to this blog.

Unfortunately, that doesn't leave me with much to write about...lol. The Boy and I spent quite a while on a little pleasure tour through the contents of the magic box in my closet;-) and I could gladly write about that. But that could get out of hand really fast...and far be it for me to be publishing content that you shouldn't be reading at work:-P

Speaking of that...his realtor is coming over later this week to start the process of selling his condo. He will get a quick list of anything he should fix or change to facilitate the listing, and then they will list it and hopefully sell it pretty quickly. And that, of course, means that he needs a place to live:-). Hey, I have an idea!!! Why don't you come and live me me? Er...us?

I am sure I will have more thoughts on this later on, but for now I will limit it to saying that I am 100% looking forward to it. I am very happy that I pushed it back and have lived alone with Munchkin for a while...that was the right thing to do, but I am now very ready for him to move in. We are sort of planning on Labor Day or sometime around there as a move-in date, but to be honest, it will probably be sort of a process. There is no reason for there to be like one drop-dead date (unless his place is sold, obviously, but it won't close before Labor Day regardless).

I also have to go over there and definitively identify things that are coming here and things that are either being given away or thrown out. His bedroom furniture is beautiful and used to be his Grandparents...so we either need to keep that or send it back to his parents, for example. And he has great sheets! Those are definitely coming with him. So, that will take me a couple hours someday, I am sure...but I can get to it some other time.

So, I have that to look forward to...and I will keep you posted on how it goes!

One week until my birthday:-)

Exciting new chapter with The Boy! Good luck with the big move--although, I am sure we will be able to read more as the steps unfold!

From my experience, living with the boy is so much fun! It's pretty comparable to living with your roommates in college -- but with some added perks (such as activites that happen on kitchen counters, coffee tables, showers, etc). Have fun!

Yay for July birthdays!

Living with your boyfriend is definitely the best move :) I love it!

I feel I've missed something, though... Obama cartoon? If that made the UK news I missed it.
