Ya' Gonna' Miss Me!

The Date Approaches

Well, perhaps you've seen my schedule (and noticed that I missed Tuesday night - I passed out).  This moving stuff is exhausting.  Juggling jobs and moving and all kinds of crazy stuff is a bit stressful, so I could really probably use a good schtooping to knock the stress out.

In case you're interested - check my schedule.  I'll unfortunately be gone this weekend - a last hurrah with the girls before I leave on Thursday.  So you can find me here tonight or tomorrow - Friday and Saturday I'll be gone and I'll be back Sunday evening, although I'm not sure what time but I will be signing on.  You could really help me make some needed cash for this move and get something special in return (wink).

Next week I'll be here on Monday and Tuesday - Wednesday is moving out day so no promises but check in for updates if you're interested - Wednesday night I have to sleep at a friend's house (no bed at my house) and Thursday I'll be on the road all day.  My internet gets hooked up on Friday next week (27th) and by the weekend I'll be back in the saddle again.  Hopefully we can hook up.

If I had to give anyone advice on moving (of which now I believe I'm an expert) I'd say never move during football season.  You guys can always call at half-time :).

Is it Really Saturday?

The Weekend Forecast
It was pretty warm last night, but it quickly turned to a pre-arctic chill.  My G/Fs and I were hanging out outside, eating, laughing, doing selfies and group shots and just generally celebrating.  I'm leaving in a week in a half, so until one of us comes to visit the others, we won't be hanging out for a while.  By "others" I mean I'll be moving closer to another member of our little group.  So, when we can all get together it's awesome - and generally loud with a lot of laughing.

Saturday?  Is it really?  Thanks to the cloudy skies and unseasonably early chilly temps, plus a few weeks of packing and picking up boxes, this girl slept late today.  Basically, I got up close to the time I was scheduled to sign-off of NF.  LOL.

Oh well, it seems like a lot of people slept late today.  It feels good to do it when you can.

Since the day/weekend got off to a late start, I'm thinking I'll be up and moving late today, so there's a chance I may make an unplanned appearance on NF.  Shoot me an email on NF if you think you'll be around.  Personally, I'm not going anywhere today, so chances are good that your weekend (and mine) will end with a truly sunny disposition.

Ciao for now,

xxo Ashley

Playing Hooky

Sleeping Beauty
Remember the story of Sleeping Beauty?  Well, I'm using her as an excuse to play hooky tonight from NF, but in all honesty, I'm too worn out to even work that intro into a sentence.  And apparently too tired to just delete it and start this blog over.  Tonight, it is what it is, bad writing and all.

Not that I'm a beauty tonight by any means.  Between boxes, newspapers (which I hate to touch) and bubble wrap and packing tape, I feel like I've earned my Mover's Union stripes.  Pack, lift, repeat.

I've been working and packing around the clock getting ready for a move.  Of course that move is near month's end and it just happens to fall a few days before my annual weekend mountain getaway, so it's safe to say that I'm also slightly stressed.  To be quite honest, I'm just worn out and I wouldn't be much fun tonight - and you know how I hate to disappoint.

So even though you may be temporarily disappointed that I'm playing hooky, you have to admit it's better than being disappointed in bed. 

But this "beauty" (if you could see me now with my hair piled on top of my head and my ass cheeks hanging out of my shorts and my hands covered in newsprint) needs to take a hot, hot shower for her sore muscles and clean this moving crap up from the floor so I don't get up in the middle of the night and slip and fall, and then I'm gonna crash into my bed - so I can wake up refreshed and ready to take on tomorrow (and take on anything you got).

I hope ya'll (just trying out my new accent) will be around tomorrow or this weekend so we can play.  Friday, as you may have noticed on my schedule, is up in the air.  Friday morning and afternoon are out - my girls want to hang before I leave and we're praying for one last sunny, hot pool day (I need a tan).  Please, please, please let there be Sun.

But since Friday's a day thing, I doubt that I'll be out all night (who knows though), so I might be here, and I'll be sure to let you know if I am.

So really, that leaves us with Thursday night, Saturday and Sunday mornings (and probably extra time) for this week.  So call me.  You can help me fund my move - it's a bit expensive - and I'm not cheap, but I am worth it. :)
