There's a lot going on around here. Dad is getting re-married tomorrow and getting him pulled together and off on his honeymoon is going to be the challenge of the next 48 hours. I'm sure I'll be posting some wedding pictures in the near future.

The time away from home has given me a chance to relax without the stress of everyday life. I haven't really accomplished much -- I've done a little knitting, fooled around with Photoshop, read a little, watched the ocean, cruised the Internet, hit the area thrift shops, and just generally vegged out. While I'm here, no one really expects me to accomplish anything and that's a good feeling.
Now that I'm liberated from that, I can get my house in order. I hope. By nature I'm a very orderly person, but you'd never know it from the way my house looks. It would be such a joy to have a place for everything and everything in its place -- not in a rigid German way, but in a peaceful zen way. I know you can never win against the entropy, but it would feel really great to get a leg up on it. And if it takes a week devoted to each room in my house, that's only about 10 weeks. I would gladly give three months to have an orderly house at last.
... And, then, there are the storage units to tackle.
Well, I can dream, can't I?
