I'm finally moving.. thank goodness!!!

First my house was burglarized, then I was robbed at gun point 2 blocks from my house with a friend at a gas station and then someone broke into my car right in front of my house.... you'd think I was living in the jungle of Oakland.  Now I'm not far away from the madness but even as I look at the houses outside, blue skys and decently taken care of lawns it still doesn't make much sense.  I'm a keep to myself type of gal..  that could be good and I guess it could be bad.  I do try to wave at my neighbors but I'm usually not the one to initiate long involved conversations.  I remember a few years ago I was afraid to be in Oakland..  thought if I was caught in the wrong part a group of kids/young adults with dreads was going to hop onto my car, crack my windshield in some side show.  Mind you I hadn't seen any of this for myself but if you let the news tell it Oakland was not the place to be.

So how do I feel now.. honestly not much goodness has come out of the stint of living in Oakland, its been about a good 1 1/2 years.  I still don't think its all bad, there are some good spots in Oakland.. but I do think there are quiet a bit of places folks are better to just stay away from.  So.. where am I moving to?   Guess what, Oakland!  I know I know.. but I think its a cool place, a different vibe, more working folks.. its by the lake.. you know you got the people who are trying to be healthy jogging, biking and pushing their baby in a stroller around the lake in the name of being active.  I'm hoping its a good move.  Only problem now is.... well there are a few problems.. one being that I don't have enough time in my day to get all the stuff done that I need to do.  I don't know how I do it but I accumulate stuff and more stuff.. and more stuff.. within a relatively short period of time.

I need to pack all of this stuff as well as get rid of a bunch more.  Today I decided to finally just go get a storage it, the likelihood that I will get through everything and rid of what I don't need come the end of the month is just not very likely.  Plus, I'm planning on going to Vegas towards the end of the month for a wedding.  I honestly don't have time to do it but its already paid for and I'm going.  So, I have 10 more days to pack, organize and get ready for my end of the month move.

Mind you I have to work during this time so I'm suppose to be doing the most of this work after I get off of work. This is only the tip of the iceberg.. I'm not quite ready to put my real work on blast.. because its the result of decisions that I made.  I just think its unnecessary.... its adding a great coat of drama over it all.  Plus I'm sick.. coughing up a storm.. I feel like just resting but somehow, someway I gotta get it together... I'm hoping that this ends up going well..

Wish me luck.. cause I really do need it!
