I am really starting to lose my mind.
Mom's the one dragging her heels on the move now... We were supposed to move two dressers, a cedar chest, and a load of mom's china from here to the house, a total of 2-3 trips. We got the first dresser and the cedar chest out. Then mom started dragging her behind, getting us to unpack an older box-thing and repack the cedar chest, then put all of dad's stuff in the dresser we'd just moved. Instead of the planned 3 trips, we only got one done. And we didn't get back here until 10:30pm. I am about ready to kill something.
Tomorrow, I am being dragged out of bed at an unholy hour to get my room packed; the desk has to be moved, and Kate wants to take the bed back to Halifax with her. I myself will probably be staying here until the end of the month, with my fish, sleeping on an air mattress, and half my tanks on the floor. Searchlight is living on the bathroom counter right now, because the dresser we moved today was the one his tank was sitting on. Was going to put him on the desk, but the desk has to go too.
I am legally learning disabled, and because I am disabled I do not adapt to change well at all. Even less so when it's happening this fast.

What kind of disability? I'd never have known from your posts...very articulate!
Work today...I'm tired though...vegged last night, but then didn't sleep...so not rested up at all! Have to run some errands after work. I'm hand delivering bills because of the postal strike...one still left to do. If I can, I'd like to get some shopping in...there are a lot of summer sales starting and our summer hasn't even started yet - so I'm hoping I can pick up some more clothes for cheap...

I suffer from a combination of ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) and Asperger's Disorder, a type of high-functioning autism. Basically, I have the attention span of a guppy, enough energy to power a car, and complicated theories/research/etc goes so far over my head it might as well be in orbit. My brain does not work the same way as most people's, so my memory span is fairly short and I can't process information very quickly. Complex reasoning is simply out of my grasp, and changes to established routines/surroundings can bring the whole process to a screeching halt.

I'm sensitive to texture and gravitate toward soft textures, which explains all the furs, both fake and real, I have.
On the moving front, I really wish it would just be over. For the last two days I've been moving large and heavy pieces of furniture, and now my body hurts all over. My left shoulder, the one with the chronic bursitis, is threatening to go at any time, and both legs are screaming with pain. I can barely walk right now, it hurts so bad.
Tomorrow involves two fridges, probably a desk, and other assorted bits and pieces. God help me ><

Raining here today, so the day will be limited to house and tank cleaning.
Looking at the calendar, its a bit depressing to see that June is almost over...a whole month of "not winter" gone already...hopefully the rain finishes up today and outside becomes an option!

PLECO PLUSHIE!!!! What would the "L" number be for this cutie?
The pain in my legs has finally subsided, or at least localized itself. Now it's settled into my lower back, hip joints, and knees instead of stretching from lower back to mid-calf in one unbroken mass of pain. I'm still walking like an old man, trying not to bend my knees any more than absolutely necessary.
Went out to the bungalow today to drop off some dishes, a container of aloe vera for the summer kit, and check on the place. There was no wind up there, and the black flies were out in force. I itch all over ><

Lovely day today, its tidy the house and mow the lawn day.
I also have a couple phone calls to make. I'm going to see about "buying back" my hotwater tank and that will be one less monthly bill to pay...

Kate is FINALLY out of my hair, and I can get a decent sleep for the first time in well over a week. Thank Primus for that.
She intended to leave at noon today, and to take the bed from the room I currently occupy with her. After peeling off all the sheets and checking underneath, she discovered that the frame is one piece, all held together with rivets, and with the chair lift track in the way getting it downstairs is impossible. So I have command of the bed for a while longer.
The big 27-inch tube TV from the living room was supposed to be mine, but Kate informed me that it was just too big to fit in the room I have to move into. Her friend Rob took it last night, to replace a wrecked TV at his mother's house. Tomorrow I will be picking up a brand-new, never-used 24-inch LED flatscreen TV from Sandy's GMV, the local used electronics/games/music store.
After Kate left I cleaned two tanks that I was supposed to have done two days ago (Shimmer and Midnight). They were due for cleaning Saturday, but Kate was driving me nuts, and by the time she finally let up on me (around midnight) I was just too tired to clean tanks. Thankfully, the fishies seem to have gotten through the delay just fine
