Nobody by to see the condo today, but that's okay because I was out much of the day. It was great to catch up with [livejournal.com profile] lakmiseiru, though [livejournal.com profile] gra_is_stor wasn't feeling too well today (though she did drive us). Things went pretty smoothly at the VA, and purty pikchurz were taken of my brain. I haven't seen them yet. I'll call neurology next week to see when they can let me know how things look. I'm still waiting to hear back from the women's clinic about scheduling an appointment for the annual tit squish. Gigi should call me Monday, I think.

I have someone else allegedly coming sometime between 10-10:30 tomorrow morning for the hide-a-bed sofa. We shall see if that actually pans out.

When I had the jewelry reinstalled today, the eyebrow piercing had shrunk down and had to be rather painfully stretched back out for the jewelry. The nose was similar but not quite so painful. Right now my nose is fine, but the eyebrow still stings. I've poulticed it a little with some hot salt water. It'll probably be fine by the time I get up tomorrow. I traded in three of the captive bead rings for endless rings, which look better and I don't have to worry about losing the beads. I kept the one I'd been using a garnet bead for, as I liked that. I'm really really glad I had a professional do this whole thing for me. It would have been way too painful to cope with if I'd done it myself.

Aside from someone allegedly coming to get the sofa tomorrow, there's nothing specific on my agenda. I think I need a little down time and will probably spend at least a little of the day sorting through a box of notebooks and maybe one of the filing cabinet drawers in order to pack another box or two of papers.

With any luck, I'll have more people come through to look at the place this weekend.

After not having heard back from the guy at the New Alexandrian Library after I sent the tapes to him, I emailed Macha today about the issue and he emailed; apparently his emails got lost in the aether somewhere. Anyway, he says to send things along, which means that my issues of Pagan APA and APA Tarot will have a new home, I suspect, along with a bunch of various issues of Pagan magazines. I don't have the collection I used to. Over the years I've got rid of a lot of things or given them to other people, but there's a fair collection of them here, and tapes and videos of presentations I've given or have been at. He'd said he couldn't guarantee they would keep all of them, but that they would at least try to find homes for whatever they didn't need. I'm good with that. When I have access to a vehicle, I'll haul things over and they will pay the FedEx fees for me to send them things.

Huge amounts of taking things off the walls in the living room, sorting through things, packing my bronzes from India and Tibet, and moving a little stuff out to the garage got done today. I got a call back from the storage place on Capitol Hill and have arranged a ride to get down there Wednesday to sign for the unit and take the first load of boxes over there. I have to inventory the boxes first so I have a running list of everything that goes into the unit for when I do move to Italy (if I get there).

It was an emotionally really hard day; the more stuff comes down, the less this place feels like my home anymore. It's becoming a hollow shell of what it once was. It's going to be hard being here during the transitional period, between listing the condo and actually moving away, when most of my things are in storage and my life has been pared down materially to a shadow of itself. I have a candle burning tonight for my Brigid flamekeeping shift, but the most recent candles I bought for it are absolute crap and won't stay lit.

I got a call from the VA today to schedule the MRI. I need to be there an hour ahead of time for some kind of contrast medium IV, and I need some lab work before I do the appointment for some kind of baseline; that I will probably try to do on Thursday, if there's enough time after my weekly group. The MRI is scheduled for Friday, August 9th. I'll need to get a couple of my piercings removed over at Laughing Buddha before then, as I can't get them out (and probably not back in, either) by myself. Most of them are fine and easily doable, but the nose piercing and one of my ear piercings are just painful to try to deal with. I haven't tried doing the eyebrow piercing myself, but we'll see how that goes. I'll get them put back in again afterwards, as well. Worth the money to get a pro to do it if doing it myself is going to hurt me.

Tomorrow, Patrick is supposed to come by to help me do things for a few hours. I'm going to have to get more packing peanuts before I can pack more books. I used the rest of them packing the bronze statues in one box. I have a few things I could wrap in some bubble wrap and put in small boxes, but for the most part, I need the peanuts for filling in the edges around books in boxes so they won't bend each other too much. The mailing outlet down the street can be walked to, and they do have peanuts, though we may have to make a couple of trips. Patrick doesn't have a car, so it'll be walking and carrying things; peanuts are light but pretty bulky, and it needs to get done. There will probably also be some cleaning done, and perhaps photos of my bicycle so that I can list it on craigslist.

[livejournal.com profile] gra_is_stor might come by tomorrow as well. We shall see - she wasn't feeling too well today, so didn't come, even though she'd hoped to. She's also got a lot to do at her own place at the moment.

And now, since I'm expecting Patrick sometime around noonish, I should ought to crawl off to bed. I didn't sleep well at all last night and am hoping to do a little better tonight.
