We have a place to live! J secured our new apartment in Sunnyvale, CA yesterday. Now every time someone asks me, I can say I live in Sunnydale CA. Oops, too much Buffy the Vampire Slayer on the brain. Sunnyvale, Sunnyvale, Sunnyvale…
Listening To: I finally got around to downloading the Gotye album and Hunger Games soundtrack. I am thoroughly in love with both of these albums. I especially am loving the Arcade Fire and Punch Brothers song on HG. Random just found out: the Punch Brothers singer is none other than former solo artist and one-third of Nickel Creek Chris Thile. I love him! Now I must look them up…
Book finished: Everneath by Brodie Ashton, Aftertime by Sophie Littlefield, The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafon, Definitely Not Mr. Darcy by Karen Doornebos; Beastly by Alex Flinn
Reading: Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire and The Ghost Map by Steven Johnson
Making Lists: Moving to do list. We still don’t have an exact date of moving, but it will be before April 30th. I currently have a list a mile long of errands, things to take care of, and things to pack before we can move.
Around the house: Making piles for moving. One for trash, one for Craigslist, one for Goodwill donations, one for giving to friends, many for keeping. I feel a bit claustrophobic will all these piles and boxes.
From the kitchen: While J is already out in California, I am trying to eat everything in the house. We have many freezer meals sitting there. My plan is to make something every night and take the second portion to work for lunch the next day. So far it’s working well. And I basically have a $0 grocery bill. Extra score.
On the Web: Trying to catch up with all my GoogleReader blogs from vacation. I still have some to get through. And I really should clean it out, but that sounds like too much work…

Crafting: None. But I am packing all my crafting this week for the big move. So I won’t be doing any crafting until we get settled in SJ.
Work Observations: Again with eating of supplies! Really people! How many pads of post-its do you need?
Watching: J took down the theater so no server for me. I did and will continue to have access to Netflix, Hulu, and various other tv show sites. Unfortunately, or fortunately, I haven’t had time to watch much with the other tasks. I did manage to catch up with The Vampire Diaries and Once Upon a Time before the big move.
Wondering: How many boxes it will take to finish packing?
From Nature: Typical spring storms rolled through the area. Although it has stayed fairly warm so that’s a plus.
Shopping Scores: Saturday morning I finally made it to the eye doctor to get some new glasses. Because of my prescription it can take up to two weeks to finish, but at least they’re ordered. The everyday frames are Tory Burch. Very cute, but understated. They were a no brainer pick. And drumroll please, I ordered prescription sunglasses. I figured I have no excuse with moving to Sunnyvale California. The sunglasses are Coach. Definitely glam, but perfect.
Project: The move, of course. My current packing task is the garage. When I moved, many boxes were regulated to the garage. I’ve forgotten what’s even in some of those boxes. The task is to sort through the boxes and condense to what I actually want. Then I can start on the inside of the actual house.
