Slow Going

Moving for me has never been a drawn out process. Usually I'd have less than 24 hours to get it all done including cleaning; if I was lucky, I'd have 48 hours. Jared and I have been packing (actively), moving and cleaning (sluggishly) for almost a month now. I feel kind of stuck where I'm at right now. I really need a push to get the house all squared away by May 1st. Instead, I wake up late, make some food and watch television shows on Netflix until Jared comes home around 2 pm. I get a lot of energy once he's here, but I really can't do anything with all his stuff in the way. I nag him about picking up his stuff, but we aren't getting anywhere. I've gotten so nervous that I'm back to taking 5-htp once a day again. Man, I don't care if it's a placebo effect. If it works, it works. I have people coming over tomorrow to look at the blue recliner and the orange chairs that I put up on Craigslist. We'll see how that goes.

This is what I have listed on Craigslist:

I did have a very strange call about the blue recliner. I can only quote a small section of it verbatim, but the gist is that I had to ask a lot of unnecessary questions. The woman that called asked if the chair was one piece or two (which is confusing because, in the picture it is very obvious it is in one piece). I said it was one piece. She asked if it had any tears. I told her that there was some wear to the bottom, which is visible in the photo on the advertisement. She then asked "Where can it be seen at?" I had her repeat this, because it's odd phrasing. "Our home in Platteville," I replied. "Where's that?" she questioned. "Platteville or my home in Platteville?" I replied. She never really answered this, but instead muttered to herself (possibly me?) something about $10.00 or best offer and having seen another chair. And then she disconnected the call. At that point, I decided that if she called back, I was not answering.

The woman who called about the chairs was very nice, so hopefully that goes well.
I am also expecting a call from a woman about the jewelry armoire I'm selling.

It should be an interesting tomorrow.

In other news, I have spent an obscene amount of time on this spreadsheet of the Best of the Twin Cities 2010/2011 spots I'm interested in. And, I've started a bookmarks folder titled "If I Had A Million Dollars" that will hold all the links to my window shopping finds. I'm doing whatever I can to distract myself, but at the end of every night I have Dire Straits stuck in my head and a brow sore from furrowing.
