The sunlight is infectious

I can not bear to contain myself. The fresh air has hijacked my mind and it’s impossible to focus. I know it’s not for real, it snowed just Sunday and I’ve read it is supposed to snow this weekend too. But it seems like spring is right around the corner. In the meantime I want to run around barefoot, I want sit outside in the sun and I want to rip the plastic insulation off of my windows.

Tomorrow we get the keys to the new place. I am very excited, but not enough to prompt me to start packing. See, the lease at my current place doesn’t end until May, so I am in no rush. But, don’t get that confused with the idea that I am not looking forward to the move.

Things I have to look forward to:

-I will have my very own room for all my art stuff. I might even venture to call it a studio, ooooh.
-That room is south facing so it will get lots of light. Have I ever mentioned how my current place has no light and how dungeon-like it is?
-I won’t have much of a yard to garden in, but I am so excited to at least to have a porch and patio, and now I’ll be able to do container gardening, yay!
-No more tacky wood paneling.
-No more ground level windows, or what I like to call peeping tom level.
-I have 3 levels, a main floor, upstairs and finished basement. I love houses with stairs.
-No more fighting for a parking space.
-I will have my very own recycling bin AT LAST! And the garbage pick up will be right at the end of the drive, rather than 2 properties away in a dumpster.
-A new mailman, I pray. Someone who actually delivers it and picks it up properly. Is it so much to ask?
-A garage to put my bike, oh yeah and a car can go in there too. Honestly, I’m more excited that there will be no more bike in the hallway or kitchen!
-No leadfoot, stomping, upstairs neighbors waking me up at 5 am every morning.
-Goodbye Sk8r boi, no more failed attempts at olys right outside my bedroom window when I am trying to sleep. (This kid should honestly be pro by now, with how many hours he puts in daily, but no one has yet to see him land a single, simple maneuver.)
-Goodbye double paned windows with moisture stuck inside, Hello clear views!
-Goodbye rabbit ear antenna, Matt can’t live without cable.
-Of course, when I get home Matt will be there already, and we won’t have the epic struggle of “no you come over to my place”.
