It has been a LONG day.
Closed Wednesday night and got home at a quarter to two, stayed up to get some work done, crashed at quarter to four, slept until seven, whereupon I got up to finish what I could do as far as packing. Movers arrived for the boxes and big stuff at a quarter to nine, and were done with our home at half-past ten. Made the drive to our new home (approximately 33.5 miles away, basically on the other side of the valley) and unloaded my car into the kitchen. Since it was just a bunch of boxes, I made a decision to start carrying them down into my basement home. With about six left to transport, Chris arrived with the g-parents and movers and in came everything else. Lunch appeared with Nik around half-past three and a short break occurred then. When I sat down on the couch to eat, I seriously thought I’d gone to heaven.
We readjourned to the old place soon thereafter to pick up animals and more stuff and I took the empties I thought might make good book boxes to get the books I was unable to pack that morning. Got mostof the books; some of my Buffy and some of my Tolkien left to retrieve, as well as the bookshelves themselves.
I did not bring the bed I’ve been sleeping on; instead, I am looking into a small twin or possibly a futon as it is just me and the cat.
More on this later as I am literally falling asleep at the keyboard.

M. LeAnne Phoenix would tell you that the worst time of her life was the two years that she attempted to take off from writing. If you asked her to explain exactly why she did such a thing, you would most likely get the mad attempt to arch an eyebrow like her dad and then a shake of the head as she told you it was unlucky to speak of such things. Suffice it to say, it will never happen again!
Born and raised in Fort Worth, Texas in the mid-1970's, Ms. Phoenix was young and wild (and even free!) during the crazy wondrous decade known as the 1980's and the even crazier but now grungy decade of the 1990's. Music is second only to the muses that live and breathe to fill her mind with beautiful men, and music always helps them to tell their stories. She is never without her iPod or her computer no matter where she goes, although, she does like to hike and take pictures of the sky and the moon, and even the occasional shot of the sun through the branches of a tree.
An avid cat lover, Ms. Phoenix has been owned by many throughout her life, though her current owner is one Gypsy Jo, who really would like for her to step away from the keyboard and pay her some attention! After all, hasn't she earned it?
