Glad you found it, Bec....I have done things like that (i.e. my thumb drive last week) and it drives me BONKERS. Ugh.
I went for a run yesterday!!! It was slllooooww, but I did 5 miles and felt pretty good. And this morning I finally feel like....ahem....my system is working properly. So if I can find a sitter I'm going for another one today (dh is out of town this weekend).
I am starting to get really excited about this move. Amherst is a really neat town, with a laid back university town vibe but also nice amenities (I get TRADER JOES BACK!!!! WOOT!!!). There are a few local farms where I can go to get fresh milk (i.e....raw milk is not illegal!), and the local Jewish community goes in together periodically to purchase, shecht (kosher slaughter) a cow so we can get fresh, local, grass-fed/organic, humanely raised etc. beef. I have not had beef in a very long time because we simply won't eat it if it doesn't meet those requirements so that is exciting. (Sorry to the vegetarians). Same with chickens (although I can get kosher, humanely raised/free range, organic chicken at whole foods -- it's expensive but we eat it maybe once a week so it works out ok).
I love a town where they have that kind of stuff, and also have a big TJ Maxx and Bed, Bath, and Beyond a few miles down the road. I wish I wasn't so crassly commercial sometimes but sometimes you do need towels and whatnot and it is nice to be able to use those coupons.
Found a house i LOVE LOVE LOVE online (rental)...the only problem is it's 4 miles from our synagogue (to which we walk). That's a bit of a drag. So we're going up in a few weeks to check things out and I guess I'll see if it can be managed. Because seriously? It's my dreamhouse. And it's an (affordable) rental. Trying not to get too emotionally involved here...
So -- on my list:
Finish school year without killing students, myself, or screaming my family into oblivion
Clean out this house
List furniture for sale
Take mighty bags of crap to Goodwill
Return all borrowed/stored/etc. items to random friends
Go to 16 or 18 doctors' appointments for me/kids, remember to take all paperwork away with me (HAHAHAHA)
Organize/buy/send to mom's house/figure out what needs to be purchased for dd1 for sleepaway camp
Pack what we need for the summer and set aside
Pack up as much stuff as possible to avoid dh 'random throw in box never to be seen again' packing
Take auto train to NJ on June 14
Go with dh to Mass. June 16/17 (leave kids with mom and dad!!!)
Register kids at new school, get paperwork from old school, etc.
Take dd1 to sleepaway camp!
Have nice summer in NJ while planning move and looking online for furniture we won't agree on
Move in August
Find a job?
Oh yeah...RUN RUN RUN RUN RUN
That might be most of it.
