Since momGeeding will be moving in with me and wifeGeeding, I’ll be busy getting things moved from her place to my place. Because of this move, BagOfNothing.com will be light for the next couple of days.
Yeah, I know, it’s not every 30 year old’s dream having his mother move in with him, but because of her health and some other issues, sometimes you just got to do what you think is right. I’m certainly thankful to have the wife that I do. I can’t say enough good things about her and her attitude and spirit concerning all of this. Talk about a wife of noble character.
A few thoughts:
- The move is tough for me. It was always nice having a place to call ‘home.’ I have my own house and all, but it was always nice ‘going home.’
- The house momGeeding is moving out of is the only house I have lived in, other than the one wifeGeeding and purchased about a year ago. Over 30 years in that house, lots of memories. Kinda weird how someone can get so attached to an inanimate object.
- My father has been dead since 1998. This is the last big step of me ‘moving on.’ Not so easy.
- Over 30 years in a house means lots of crap. Why the heck did I hold on to my 5th grade spanish homework? ai de me, no is bueno.
- When some people hear that my mother is moving in with me, I get two reactions. Reaction one is not very common, it’s the one where folks say I’m noble or something. Reaction 2 is very common. Folks just look at me weird, turn their head, and say “Ohhhhhhhhh” or “I’m sorry.” Interesting.
- The folks at U-Haul know me by name.
- My back hurts.
- Gas is still tooooooo expensive.
- I decided to make-up and play a game on Saturday on the moving road trip. I decided to count every suburban type of vehicle (like the Toyota Sequoia, Chevy Tahoe or Ford Excursion, but I excluded smaller ones like the 4Runner, Trailblazer or Explorer) with female drivers and see how many were talking on a cell phone. See, I have this thing about soccer moms driving large vehicles – they don’t seem to drive well and that’s because I think they feel protected in the large vehicle and don’t necessarily pay attention when they drive. I counted a total of 23, and 20 were yacking away during this hour and a half road trip. That’s about 87%.
That’s all for now.
