I survived today!  Today is over!  And I am alive!

So, let me catch you up.  I haven't posted about this particular RL thing much because I didn't want to jinx myself and also because it wasn't that interesting, I think?  But anyway - today my sister and I closed on our new house!  We are now first-time home owners, and it is very exciting.  Now, we won't be moving in for a bit yet - we need to paint, pull up carpets, buy, like, new beds and stuff - but still.  The awful icky part is over.  We also got all of our stuff out of our storage unit and just piled it in the basement to be taken care of later.  I didn't want to pay for another month of storage, and I also just plain hate having my stuff in storage in general.  I always worry about it. 


Seriously, my stress and anxiety level the last, hmm, three months or so as we've been going through this home-buying journey have just been absurd.  The other day I couldn't find my lunch in the freezer here at home and I had to go lay down in my bedroom and have an ugly-cry.

Now the fun part starts.  Of course, I really need to start finding time to work on screenplays.  I'm not going to have anything new to submit to competitions and festivals this year besides the TV pilot if I don't get my ass into gear.

Now that the stress is over, I hope you can enjoy all the home improvement stuff, and will be able to move in quickly. Go you!!

Thanks! I think everything will be okay now, now that I can be productive. I just hate things being unsettled.

This is great news!

I can't imagine owning my own place, but it's probably very awesome. And once you and your sister finally get all settled in you'll probably love it. I'm glad you are getting to move soon and I hope you enjoy sprucing up your new home!

Thanks! I'm still a little eee about owning a house like an adult type person, but I'm much happier than I would be renting, so. And I get to paint!

:D:D:D Laura's got so many ideas for stuff she wants to do, it's ridiculous. I'll probably just let her have at it.
