    Yes, we will both hit size 8! And I had another good happening this evening. While packing, I ran across my old Lucky Brand jeans that just a few weeks ago wouldn't even make it past my knees - I can actually put them on. Can't button the top, but still! They are well within my grasp. And...I ran across some old clothes buried under some old computer stuff and guess what? TWO pairs of black pants that fit me perfectly and are quite nice - classic straight legs, almost new. That is quite a find as I am pretty short on good-fitting pants right now. This is scary - things are going too well...

    Go ahead and start the journal, Peds. Just blather on like I do -

    Really made a lot of progress today. Tomorrow is the big day - moving men should be here at 3. Can't wait! I have a lot of stuff! Got to get rid of at least half of it. You will not believe how many Christmas decorations I have. I love Christmas, but it's ridiculous. I have four huge boxes of stuff. I hope I will be able to let it go. Maybe I will use the stuff I have over the next few Christmases and give away what I used each year.

    Have to get some sleep!

    Had to drop by and say hello! I've read through your journal over the past while (yes, the whole thing!), and I'm very impressed at your transition to primal-ness. Yay for fitting new sizes, new half price apartments and fresh local strawberries

    Why thank you, Greensprout! Some of it is a bit tedious but maybe a few bits are interesting.

    Today is the big day. Well, I haven't run any marathons or ultra events, but I have got through a very trying week staying primal with no problem. Am I a fat-burning beast? I must be. I've been very active, lifted many, many, many heavy things. Haven't had any crashes. Actually, looking back, although I certainly felt in need of a break at times, I never had any of those "I have to eat or I'll die" episodes, or a "gimme food, let me stuff anything edible in my face" episodes. Okay, the strawberries. But I think that is okay, and I would have done that anyway.

    Hello from my new home. Thought my computer had bitten the dust. I've been fooling with it for half an hour. The screen is trying to stop working and I am trying to help it along as best as I can. I think I am already a year past my sell-by date on this computer. I had to crash it about five times to get the screen to light up. But I was successful in the end. Okay, enough fooling around, lots of work to do -

    Congrats on being in your new place! I am pondering how one goes about throwing a house-warming party online.

    And that is too cool about finding pants that fit. I have a pencil skirt in my reward drawer that I couldn't do up when I bought it. Now I can. It's still in the drawer, because it gives me a muffin top but I'm almost there! Can hardly wait. I haven't worn a pencil skirt in a gazillion years.

    Yes, Christine Lagarde has IT, for sure. And I love the defiantly silver hair... Mine is silver partly out of a fear of chemicals, but mostly out of "can't be bothered". I don't think that counts as defiance.

    She has gorgeous hair, as well as a lot of other things. My hair is, alas, dirty gray at present so I'm a Clairol girl. I hope someday I will be platinum.

    I had my first simple but primal meal in my new home, surrounded by boxes and happy as can be. I was hardly able to eat today due to nervousness, but when it was over I was suddenly starving. I had a few shrimp and some strawberries, then headed to store when it was obvious that wasn't going to tide me over. I got a rotisserie chicken, leafy greens, and some blackberries. Ate it at my table looking over the forest and the ocean. I am so happy! And tired. Very tired. Off to bed.

    If I had a camera I would! I really need to get one. I need pics of my cats, for one thing.

    I woke up during the night, about 1 AM, and saw the stars above me and thought I must be in heaven. (It is very dark here, the stars are spectacular.) Then I realized that I live here! I have five skylights in my bedroom, so I can stargaze all I want. I need to think of a name for my new home.

    Yesterday the cats were too freaked out to bring them here, and I was exhausted. So I fetched them this morning and here we all are. Not sure what they think! Of course they want to lay in the windows and look at the birds. I will admit I do the same thing, except I won't fit on the window sill. Anyway, I can't fault them. They are going to love it here, all the sunshine and the birds to watch.

    I was ready to go over to my old place and finish there - still hours of work, lots of stuff to haul to the thrift shop, lots of rubbish, still at least a carload of stuff, and then of course the massive cleaning! But there is plenty of work to here too, and this is pleasant work, so here I am. That work isn't going anywhere. I still have through tomorrow to get it done. So here I will stay today and organize and unpack and hang out with the kitts.

    Must get some more food at some point. Rather embarrassing to admit I have eaten almost the entire chicken I bought yesterday. In my defense, it is rather small, being organic. I ate during the night, something I never do, but I was very hungry. I was awake for a couple of hours and got a bit peckish. Won't make a habit of that, but these are unusual times. I had demolished about half of it for dinner already so there is about a third left.

    Cats are beginning to explore, they are so funny. They keep coming over to me for reassurance, which makes me feel good.

    Well, better get back to work.

    Watching the stars while in bed DOES sound like heaven!
