I'm here folks. I'm moved. I'm no where near settled, but the kittaah's and I are here. I'm currently the only one of us that is not hiding under the bed.

I have stories, but I am too tired. It's been on hell of a weekend. I'll try and catch you up later in the week. I have doubles all week this week, and then it will be christmas!!! Good night nurse!!!

Love and Light to you all!

Old Mother Hubbard

Old Mother Hubbard
Went to the cupboard
To give his poor kitties a treat.
They clamored under his feet
making him trip and fall into the sink
Can anyone remember when last
the apartment was neat?!~

Wwwweeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!! It's Saturday morning, and If old Mother Hubbard was to actually open a cupboard around here, she would find Nothing. That's right! Nothing! The cupboards are empty. So are the bookshelves. So is one of the two closets.

I think with one more 4-5 hour push, I will have the flat packed and ready for the movers on Monday. I had Help(?) last night from a friend who came over to help pack. I thank him for his effort. He despises packing, and yet we have a close enough friendship that he came over to help pack up my kitchen. I plied him with bourbon and dinner... So several boxes were packed last night, that I didn't have to physically pack. CHEERS!!!! It also allowed me to finish packing up the bathroom and one of the closets. We worked until what would have been the end of the show (11pm) and then had ice cream and I sent him home (packing?) hehehehe.

I slept last night. I shall sleep tonight. I feel a bit of the weight coming off my shoulders. It will be ready for the movers Monday morning. I shall finish up the bedroom this evening, emptying and packing up the last of the dresser items and boxing up the remaining clothes hanging in the closet.

Mind you, I can't walk through the flat without tripping over something. The only clear path is the 6 steps from bedroom to toilet.

But tis all good. Sunday night I will do the final internet things, and then strip the computer cables and entertainment system cables and cords. I have more than enough boxes and tape left. I might even still have the strength.... Moving is a full time gig, and I've manage to do it with two full time jobs.

Speaking of jobs: The ballet is going well. Initially, I was only guaranteed work in December for The Nutcracker, but yesterday I sat down with my boss and our calendars and was informed that I'll be continuing my employement with them for the winter season. I will get a break in March while they are out on tour but I am now confirmed to be employed by them while they are in NYC residence. This makes me happy on several levels, but I can't really discuss the full ramifications of this decision here; not yet anyway. But the plans are being laid, direction is becoming clearer. I'm never really concerned about having enough work; nay, the move is going to eliminate the need to work SO hard, and here I find myself with more work than I MUST have to live and pay the bills.

It will be nice to have the extra income though. Bills to pay, travel to fund, debt to eliminate. All part of the MP (master plan). All part of figuring out what I want to be 'when I grow up."

I started another saving account last week, titled "clothing - Italian." hehehe

The clean laundry is all so nicely folded and packed. Now I must carefully paw through that bag and pull out a towel so that I can shower and prepare for work.

Thank you all for your kind words and thoughts. They have helped immensely. I am very thankful.

The next post will be coming to you from the new flat. I have no idea when the cable company is actually going to appear to rewire the new house. it could take a few weeks (no one in their right mind moves this time of year, and yes; I know what that says about me).

Happy Holidays! Love and Light!!

by request

A few of you have asked, so here you go: I present to you: The Italian.

Who evidently had better be good to me, as a certain writer friend of mine not so casually mentioned this week that she would have to kill him... I don't recall if I casually mentioned that the Italians older sister is a weapon wearing member of the italain polizia... If I didn't, she'll know when she reads this...

So yah, one of the reasons I'm working so bloody hard right now is pictured above.


It's my fault... the nor-easter that is blowing our way, causing the media sensation around here, as the first big storms of the winter are being forecast... Right up to the day I'm supposed to be moving...

Those of you who speak to me personally know that I forecast this. I told you to mark it on your calenders... I foretold the first serious blizzard would be on Dec 16...

Imp cackles...

In other news, the Kittaah's are so freaked out by the state of the house that they are hissing and spitting at each other... there has been a major confrontation every evening upon my return home for the last 3 days. I've explained that everything is okay, it's just we are moving to a new house. They aren't having any of it... They know my moods and energy better than I do, and I'm now convinced that they are merely acting out to my energy and thought patterns. Hissing and spitting and clawing, Indeed!

I'm taken down and packed my alter, and the whole apartment is different. Let's just hope that I survive another few days here without something majorly stupid happening to the building/apartment.

I'm into the bedroom this evening for the packing of shoes, linens, and 'other."

Love and Light to you all!

a few words

It never fails to amaze me how a few well placed words can just make my day. How long is it since I've been to London? How long is it since I've seen my handsome and sexy italian? Months now, and with everything that has happened since, it feels like ages...

And Yet, with a few words, I am instantly transported and lifted; everything seems OK (Don't open your eyes and look at the flat, just enjoy the sensation for the moment).

Thank you, to the universe, for everything you give me. Thank you Italiano for being capable of holding my hand and making everything al'ight, from thousands of miles away.

And I
I'm sending out my love
Calling on the universe
And I
I radiate the vibe
Can you feel this frequency of the
Random Blinking Light?!

Now, to pack a few boxes and get my tail into work!

Love and Light!

OK folks: Here's the run down!

You haven't heard from me much cause I'm imping two jobs and trying to hold my life together while I'm packing up the NYC flat. Most of you know by now that I'm moving; indeed, the movers will be arriving in a mere 8 days to carry the boxes down and up stairs. I'm madly trying to Get It Packed, so I'll be ready. I'm nervous about it being ready. It seems like every time I fill up and seal a box, I just find more stuff!!! Anyhow, the "Panic" officially struck on Thursday evening, around 2:30 am as I was still putting things in boxes. Nothing that a well placed slug of bourbon and an ambien didn't take care of, but it hit me...

So much to write about, and yet it will all have to wait until after the move and maybe the holidays... I didn't Realize I would be moving when I told the ballet I would work for them, and can't renig on the promise to work for them. (they are going to be a key element in the fall of next year, should things go well this season). It's Enjoyable work with enjoyable people! Hell, I say, if people can enjoy work and each other in the middle of The Nutcracker, the rest of the season ought to be a cakewalk.

The Darren shows in NYC and Philly were entertaining. Not the absolute best I've ever seen, but there were Shining Moments!! I got to see him perform Dublin Sky, twice, the perfect acoustic song (although I'm thrilled, I'm also amused, he flubbed the lyrics both times) Fun right?! Of course, I got to met him here in NYC, and I quote "I've been staring at your hair all evening, May I touch it?"

The answer to your next question is: "No, I Didn't wash my hair for 4 days!"

It's great being back to work and the strike being over. I'll be even more thankful when the real paychecks begin accruing regularly again.

You won't be hearing much from me for the next few weeks. Papa is moving, and he's bitten off a bit more than he can chew for the next few days. Think of me, and I'll post again when I am settled and can come up for air...

Love and Light!

Let's all take a moment to reflect upon our own lives and loved ones today, and to love each other. So Many things happen in the blink of an eye.

Happy Birthday Matthew. Matthew would have turned 31 today. Do you harbor resentment against people because of their livestyle, beliefs, race, or class? Hate KILLS, everyone is a victim to hate, no one is immune. Hate does not uplift and build; Hate destroys.

Let's also take a moment to reflect on our own personal behaviors and actions. Today is also World AIDS Day. Cherish your loved ones, talk about HIV and AIDS. You are either part of the solution or you are contributing to the problem. Period.

Here's to all those who have gone before, and to those who lead us into the future.

Love and Light.
