Some Vitamin D

Not much exciting going on, just wanted to update. I am tangled up in the details of moving, setting up for the new house and regular life stuff. I wish I had a dollar for every time I have had to tell a stranger that I am getting divorced in refrence to some business I have to transact. Tomorrow we drop Keegan off for some freelance daycare and pack like madmen. My parents and I have had a lot of practice (eleven moves for me not including college) so we should be able to make good progress. I think we'll put dad in charge of Keegan's room since he's not so great with the breakables. I had already packed a lot of smaller and delicate things away when Keegan stared cruising.

It is finally beautiful weather here and I'm stuck inside. All of my co-workers are out today either at conferences or taking time off. So I'm really having trouble not staring longingly out the window. Maybe I'll take my lunch to the picnic table and take in some sun.
