Change is Inevitable

Hello you lovely people! Sorry for the disappearing act, I’ve been busy burying myself under a pile of boxes. We’re moving apartment tomorrow, and being the horrible procrastinator I am I didn’t bother getting anything packed until it turned into a very large task that needed to be completed very quickly.

I’ve also realised that I come from a family of pack rats. It was horrifying to see exactly how much junk I’d managed to stuff into my room over the past few years. But then I went to see what Mom was up to and she was diligently unpacking and repacking several boxes that hadn’t been touched since the last time we moved. I guess a weakness for knick knacks runs in the genes.

Set up the new turtle tanks today. The matching blisters I have on both hands proves it (I love Fluval filters, but the initial priming is a pain in the ass). Waffle’s getting a 65 gallon tank and Dorothy’s getting a 75. I’ll be making a separate trip tomorrow to bring them over. Then I get to make some custom above tank basking areas, and a custom enclosure for Zeus (I really want to do something like this tortoise table). I’ve been getting so obsessed with them lately. Willie fears the day that we move in together and I fill the house with reptiles.

The computer needs to be boxed now, so see you all on the other side.

    Sounds like me. I didn’t thought I would need so many boxes for all my stuff. It’s amazing how I have all those things in my little room lol

    Hi Becca,Congratulations. I agree with you that Change is inevitable and you can’t stop that. If you happily accept that you will win over every situation and if not then you will be left behind!

    So are you all moved in yet? It’s amazing the amount of stuff you can accumulate in the space of even 6 months. Hehe. Good luck with everything!!

    I think you are right that Change is Inevitable. you can’t escape from that. Change can happen anywhere. either it can at your workplace, in your personal life or at your nearby surroundings. This is what our mother nature has tought us! Thnx for that lovely blog I really liked alot. Hope to see your new blog soon

    Nice blog and theme you have got here. Found this blog when wandering around wordpress site. You are good for choosing colors and mixing them, to my opinion. O yeah, enjoy your new home.

    I agree with Soodye’s comment above, soothing choice of colors, great theme… so far I can’t figure out how to put my ’subscribe to my rss’ graphic links in or the graphic for my ebook.I was thinking they could go into the text sidebar widget you included.. cant find where to edit that yetHope your move went smoothly, I just moved from Baltimore to Frederick a few months ago. It seems I have children your age, judging from your posts. Hey, those smily icons below are really cool… you’re a great coder!

    Hope the move went well. I’m a pack-rat too, but only with certain things like stuffed animals and books.Turtle tanks! I really want to get a tank and put little turtles in it, but I’d probably kill them on accident. *sad*

    Wow, I’m loving the new arrangement here! But I realized that this is not a liquid layout… What about those who have smaller screen res?…
