I'm not really a big fan of packing, although I am good at this task. The apartment looks so weird. All of my life for the past seven years is tucked away in boxes scattered all over the place. I never realized how much liquor we had stocked away.

Sorry for your necks folks. In my hurry to upload the photos, I didn't recognize the photo was on the side until just now.

It's also a very good thing I knit as much as I do. As a result, I have a great source for packing:

It sure beats looking for newspapers. I'm not really one to read the paper anyway. When I get curious about something or need to learn whatever everyone else is discussing, I usually go online. I am very big into instant gratification. Click, click, information.

I have been doing a little knitting. This is my new pattern:

It has the Decepticon symbol from the movie or cartoon, Transformer. I'm quite proud of this little project. As soon as I remove the chart from the 27 pound furry prison, I'll make it available on Ravelry.

I'm quite of proud of myself. You never really know what you are capable of until you are thrust into the midst of it all. Being attached to someone for so long, you lose sight of yourself. I'm very thankful (and yes I know I have already said this) that this divorce is going as well as it is. I've never experienced anything like this before. I have no idea what the rules are. I have no clue what is expected of me. All I really want is for this to be as painless as possible. We do experience our rather tense situations. We lash out in anger and in frustration. I don't like that. I get physically ill from the conflict. We are learning as we go. As long as we don't lose sight of the fact that we do love each other and do not wish any form of harm or discomfort, I'm sure we will fare out alright.

I'm actually at work now. I have nine minutes until I can go home and rest. That word home is funny. It is my home, but it is so different now.
I hope you all have a great evening.
