Am I becoming a Stepford wife?

I'm sure my left hand is down here somewhere...

So I guess you could say I'm all settled in at the new house. I am also feeling unsettled to tell you the truth. I'm here waiting for something to happen. I know there are many things that need to be done like finishing up that last bit of organising and planning my damn wedding but I don't feel like doing those things right now. I wasn't feeling well this week and so I missed an opportunity to get out and hear some music on Tuesday night. That might have done me good because, let's face it, I don't do well being home every night of the week. Work, home, cook dinner, clean up dishes, watch tv until falling asleep, bed. This routine drives me crazy. I long for it and then when I have it I get so bored and unsettled I can't stand it. I know things will change soon though because The Juice is moving in this weekend and I can't wait! I'll have to ask her how she wants me to identify her when I tell you all the crazy stories about her. I know she reads my blog so I'll ask now- Jessie, Juicy, The Juice, J???? Did you have a better idea? I want to hear it. And another thing, would you hurry up and get your ass in here so you can add some excitment to my life? I promise we will only drink wine and gab every night for the first couple of weeks and then we can settle down to an every second night kind of thing. You can mark my words, there will be some girlfriending going on around here. Bring it on!

One of the modern conveniences a la 1975 that this house came with is an In -Sink-Erator in the kitchen sink. (where else would it be) Anyway, I love this thing. At first I just wasn't sure about putting stuff down there, I mean, it goes against everything I have been taught. I had misgivings, that's for sure. I wasn't sure about the environmental repercussions, I didn't know what you could and couldn't throw down there and I had visions of something falling down there and reaching for it just as it turned itself on and ground my hand to a bloody stump. So I did a little research online and it turns out yu can stuff almost anything down there. So I do. It's awesome, my garbage doesn't get smelly and cleaning up the kitchen after cooking is a breeze. I know it's just one more thing to break down but as long as I don't abuse it I'm going to use it. Once J moves in we will get a composter going so a lot of that stuff will end up going back to the earth but in the mean time, I'm stuffing it down. It's just so satisfying.

I need to get out of the house.

Maybe it's not so much your mood but a feeling in the air, because I've been feeling unsettled too and haven't found my new routine or rhythm. But I know it'll come.

Who wonderful to have a friend living with you - that's awesome.

Hang in there, I'm sure things will change soon enough!

Oh Barb - how awesome to read those kind words. You made my day. You can pretty much call me what you want - Jessie is good (as that is my name) and Juicy is fine too (as I am!). As long as any reference to me doesn't include the word "big" - I hate that Big J, the Gigantic Juicy ~ that king of thing. I'll be there within 3 days! so stock up on the wine girl - I'll be needing it just as much as you - and I totally agree with the routine business - I long for it - but hate it sometimes. Let's change it up and make our own routine. The boys will just have to learn to adjust!!!!! Boys?, what boys? hehe
Love ya,
I'll be home soon,

And golly I miss my garbuerator, it's so handy... just don't put meat anything down it- trust me on the one....!

I wouldn't live anywhere there wasn't a garbage disposal. In fact, I think every house I've lived in my whole life has had one. Don't put potato peels down it, though! :-)

Hmmm, I understand no meat but no potato peels? That surprises me. You would think they would grind up easily. I also read no onion peels or celery.
