    Pack. Move. Unpack: Tanktimus Relocates Forum Headquarters

    As the title and the tags indicate, we are now homeowners! Closing will be on Thursday, June 27th. Week 1 of the challenge will be finalizing packing and getting some things set up at the new place (buying a fridge [probably from the scratch and dent place], installing blinds, putting Toilet paper and hand soap in all the bathrooms). Week 2 I am taking off from work for the move. July 8th, moving day, will also be our 2nd Wedding Anniversary. Tell the truth, how many of you got a house for an Anniversary present? We are hiring movers because we are too old and make too much money to ask our friends for help. The rest of that week will be unpacking and setting things up, as well as cleaning the old apartment and turning in the keys. Weeks 3 and four will be continuing to unpack and filling out myriad change of address forms. At some point, we will be eating and I will hopefully get some workouts in.

    Pack. Move. Unpack: Tanktimus Relocates Forum Headquarters

    Agreed. You are correct on both counts. We did enjoy shopping and the walk through. Today is a good day. I was low energy due to getting called in, but we did the walkthrough and measured the windows. That house is so BIG! The closets are ginormous, and the master bath has A GARDEN TUB! For a six foot tall person that is incredible. I can't straighten my legs in it, but it's so deep I can get way more submerged than I ever could in standard tubs, which I hate having to use. There are all new light fixtures, the doors are in good shape. We will want to replace the toilets (too low and the bowls are too small) at some point, but don't have to be done right away. We also went grocery shopping, and bought hand soap and toilet paper for each bathroom, and are going to take spare hand towels over as well. Tomorrow is closing, then off to the big box hardware store for mowers and trimmers and shovels etc.

    Have you seen Fight The New Drug on FB? They are totally-not-religious-no-not-at-all-even-though-we-are-all-Mormons-From-Utah "Secular" and try to come at the effects of Porn from a psychological perspective.

    I have it on good authority the sorting hat will take your preference into account if you speak up for yourself. You know us Puffs will accept you in.

    I am seriously academically interested in that dissertation. Does it exist in an electronic form that I could read?

    I have heard people scream like they were being tortured during the kind of dressing changes you describe. I fully believe it is Hell.

    Oh man, I'm sorry the universe is gunning for you. I don't know many people who could handle all that with the equanimity you display.

    Harley Quinn as a red Twi'lek? Either way it's awesome. I have also found it's harder to be motivated to make healthy choices when in a good relationship. Following!

    Yeah, I hate baby showers too. There's nothing wrong with them, nor is there anything wrong with people who like them, but they are very, very much not for me. As for HR stuff, are you an employee of the clinic or an independent contractor? Will you simply have hospital privileges, does your clinic contract with the hospital, or is it some third arrangement I haven't thought of? I know down here the only doctors who actually work for the hospital as an employee are ones in the Chief of Medicine department, and they work in quality control. All the others contract one way or another.

    I'd say the act of spending that money on yourself is even more important than getting the couch. It's a way to train yourself to see you as worth it. Behavioral psych always says it's easier to change someone's beliefs after changing their behavior. In your case, it may be easier to believe you are worth it after actually doing actions that show you are worth it. I'm proud of you. This is an awesome reason to do something. You might be temypted to discount these actions since you "only did it not to get in trouble." On the other hand, you did it because you said you were going to do it and Flea is an honest person who does what she said she'll do. In my head cannon, it's the second one. I'm proud of you. Yeah, that's really frustrating. I tend to agree there might be some medical stuff going on, but given your [Flea's] frustration with the medical community, I'd give you a pass on putting that on the back burner for a while, especially given how much progress you are making in other areas. That's not permission to ignore it forever. RES is right that dealing with it will help in a lot of areas, I'm just saying it's ok not to deal with it RIGHT THIS VERY MINUTE OH MY GOD!

    Sra. Tanque has found TH's accusation and your depiction of your defense against it quite humorous. That got us to talking about how it's uncommon for someone over on this side of the pond to be so frank about discussing such things which was concluded by me saying, "Yeah, well England dumped all their Puritans on the New World."

    There are other images I could have posted, but this is the sort of thing more appropriate to imply than depict...

    Pack. Move. Unpack: Tanktimus Relocates Forum Headquarters

    As much as I dislike packing I'm not sure I'd want a moving company packing for me, but at the same time not having to pack at all does have an allure. Yesterday was a good day. Was tired off and on at work, but it was a good day. No workout or cooking. I was on call last night for close hospital, and had to go in, but I still managed to get some sleep. I won't know till later today if it was enough or not. Today we do the final walkthrough on the new house, and will measure the windows for blinds and see how big a fridge we can put in the kitchen. This will be our first time inside the house since we toured it with the Real Estate Agent over a month ago!
