Surprise! Notice anything different? I just decided on the spur of the moment to change the look of the blog a bit…and immediately devoted (way too many) hours to the task. Five thousand different things are up in the air right now, but the background of my blog is something I can CONTROL, dangit!
They’re coming to pack up our things in a month, you know. (La LALALALALA, I’m not listening!) Where did this year go? That wouldn’t be so bad, I guess, but we’re not allowed to box up anything. No, really. This is to prevent us from smuggling out national treasures or contraband items in between the folded socks, I presume. Also, pennies and batteries. Since I’m a slow-and-steady kind of girl, I’d feel a lot better if we were able to start boxing things up, bit by bit and box by box… a little at a time. It’s a great way to go through everything with enough time to ditch stuff you decide you don’t want to lug back across the ocean – plus, once you’ve boxed it up you don’t have to handle it again. That’s just not possible in a one-day professional mover boxing blitz.
Anyway, I added a fun little piece of functionality to the blog; if you’re on an individual post’s page, scroll down to the bottom to see some more related posts from the pasts. It’s really fun! I haven’t looked at some of those posts in literally years and it’s so interesting to read some of what I’ve written over the years. Unfortunately, I have to add the post thumbnails one by one, so expect that to take a while!
