Moving

Graig has packed out entire apartment. My (self-appointed) job was to stay out of the way. We're in the middle of painting and moving this weekend and I'm in the middle of trying to breathe. Between the dust in the old apartment and the paint in the new apartment I've got my hands full. Today I'm cleaning off various surfaces--the last of my computer work area. I'll keep a card table with an internet connection in the old apartment until the new apartment is ready to go.

I cannot watch this show without bursting into tears at least once. The design team is led by Ty Pennington, but the house isn't necessarily a Ty design. The team gets seven days to do a total makeover of a house. We're talking about ripping out walls, adding new levels to a house, ... anything goes. The best part is the family. There's always something tragic about the family. This week it's cancer, if I remember correctly. Last week it was a single mom with a kid that was born when the mom was 17 and two adopted kids.

Monday Nights

The worst (and the best) night of the week is Monday night. On the one hand I've got This is Wonderland, and Rick Mercer's show to watch, on the other hand I have a billion little things that need to get done so I always end up watching TV and then having to stay up way too late fussing with things I shouldn't really be fussing with (let alone losing sleep over).
