The life of a traveling, reading, writing, spining and knitting shepherdess.

Slogging on… January 30, 2009

Last night I went to my usual Happy Hookers group.  Even this pack mistress needs a night off every now and then. It was a little unusual in the fact that we first went to Super Suppers for a tasting arranged by our one and only amazing Lily who set it up for us.  I got some food to heat and eat for when Chris is gone and then went and forgot it in the trunk of the car when we got home.  However, it wasn’t the end of the world as it was still pretty frozen this morning when I woke up thinking about the monkey bread and went and got it all from the car….  It was a fun night as usual even though we weren’t in our usual Paneara.  Didn’t get a lot done on the blue and white torture, but that’s ok.  I have resigned myself that it will get finished when we are done with the move.  I won’t have much else to do but crochet it and look at the pets trying to pop the airmattress.

Still packing.  I don’t know just how so much stuff fit into this little 900+ sq. ft. house.  I mean, I know that a lot of things take more space when packed but damn, I think that the amount of mass is multiplying in some mysterious anti-physics way.  Think the Tribbles episode of Star Trek.  Only these aren’t cute little furry creatures rather ugly looking, brown, cardboard boxes and things wrapped in throw rugs and shrink wrap (I love shrink wrap, just an FYI for y’all).  

I took both dogs and 2 cats down to the Virgin Atlantic cargo office on Wednesday.  I wanted to make sure that all of their crates were of appropriate dimension’s.  I’m glad I did as I found out that the cat’s crates were all too small.  I have ordered larger ones for them.  Here’s the odd thing…We are now taking up considerably more space in the plane but we are being charged a lower amount, by something on the order of $500.  Once you pass a certain threshold you are charged a different rate.  Who knew?  So, a word to all you thinking of taking a bunch of pets overseas, go ahead and upgrade your pets crates, it could make it cheaper for you!
