Today after School Princess T had her Dental Appointment, it was a good visit, no cavities and a cleaning. She'd had a meltdown earlier due to having to remove her Nose Piercing at School, her Skin Sensitivity Issues couldn't handle the Metal. She's had problems wearing any Metals, even precious Metals, since she was about Age 3. So no more Nose Jewelry...
Much like her Mama, who had the same Sensitivity to Metals from about the same Age. She was disappointed, since she Loved the CZ Nose Stud and it looked so Cute on her, but we couldn't risk infection or keloids developing. She's been Cheered up since locating her Evil Clown Halloween Costume tho' and perfecting how she wants to look for Halloween Night.
I cannot even begin to tell you how Thankful I was we found it, since I'd paid so much for it, due to it being her last Year to go Trick-Or-Treating! *Whew!* I'd of made her wear that damned thing at least once every Week for a whole Year otherwise to get my Money's worth out of it! *Winks* On Halloween Night it will be splattered with Prop Blood and she'll be wielding the matching Sledge Hammer. At least she's all covered up in this Costume, it's hard to find one that makes a Young Teen Girl not look Sexy! I was Happy she settled on a Clown Costume since she's wearing Adult Woman sizes now and many of those are too provocative for a Child.
We've always had Fun with Costumes and it's not as if she might not still want to wear some in the Future, if she attends Halloween Parties for Older Teens, but the Trick-Or-Treating will probably end after this Year. I'm glad she's getting one last Trick-Or-Treating Experience with her Friends around here, they go as a Group and she won't have that at the New House, which isn't in a Neighborhood. She's Okay with not living in a Neighborhood, since she's not very Social anyway, but she does have her tight Inner Circle of Friends here she'll surely miss and might keep in touch with.
She's not upset in these Images, she says she is supposed to look dour and in Character for a Psychopathic Clown. I think she has THAT LOOK Down! *LMAO* I like her in the Black and White, it suits her... and those are definitely her preferred Color Palette for Wardrobe, she is not a Colorful Gal by any means. They had bright Clown Costumes, she wouldn't have it and wanted a more Harlequin Style Costume. This was the last Size 16 they had in Stock, so I'm glad I bought it way early or I probably would have lost my Mind shopping with her for a Costume she had a Vision for! *Whew!*
Halloween now being 'Saved' with locating the packed up Costume from the Storage Unit... and being able to keep up some of our Halloween Decor, which doesn't seem to be Offending anyone Viewing so far... we're Good now for the Holidays! We've had multiple Viewings every Day since the Listing went Live... and a few even before it did, so Interest has been higher than I expected actually. I actually Hope the competition to Buy it will be stiff and multiple offers come in... we'll see.
I'd decided this Morning, after picking up my prescriptions from the Base Pharmacy, to take a ride to The Desert Botanical Gardens to come back to Center and before the next Viewing at 1:00 p.m..
I could still be packing, but Honestly, I Needed some Me Time, in between Viewings and trying to pack every Small in Villa Boheme' to cut Moving Costs down and form a viable Plan to get Moved within Budget constraints.
If Packers charge $250 an Hour, which is ridiculous, it's not Brain Surgery folks it's Packing Boxes, then I will just have to do it myself instead. I don't like charging by the Hour anyway, since they could milk it for all it's worth at that exorbitant fee per Hour!
I have Sold Off a LOT of the big stuff anyway, so Smalls really is the bane of my existence of what to do with in a Time crunch. Yes, I could use Hired Help, but since I can't afford it, then I'm just going to have to suck it up and work harder to do mostly a Self Move again, pacing myself so I don't overdo it or drop dead in the Process.
Mebbe do a Hood Hookup with some of the Young Men I know from the Old Neighborhood, of all the Steaks they can eat and Beer they can drink after moving my stuff?! *LOL*
I was kinda racing thru the Gardens and the Exhibit in time to get back for Princess T's Appointment and to pick The Man up from the Green Belt at the end of our Street while a Viewing was taking place. So I didn't get to see the entire Exhibit spread out across the Gardens nor read every Message, a good excuse to go back again and enjoy it at more Leisure next time. But I did get some good pixs to Share here in the Land Of Blog of what I did get to Experience. Fun Art Created from the recycled Plastics was a great way to dispose of what is polluting our Planet in a Meaningful way.
The larger groupings of the same cast Animals just made me Smile... and I desperately Needed that, I've been way too Serious since we began this Moving Project thing! It was just Nice to Feel more like myself and my usual State of Being! And to do the things I normally reserve for the Month of October, which is my Favorite Month of the entire Year. Our Weather here in the Arizona Desert is always Glorious in Autumn, which it definitely was Glorious Today!
When we get into the New Pueblo Boheme' location it will be much like this on the 2.5 Acres we'll own... High Desert has a lot of Native Cacti and Scenic Views. I can hardly wait to Create my own Personal Desert Botanical Gardens and Walking Paths just below the Mesa the House sits upon and is part of the Parcel. We'll be Meeting with the Seller Tomorrow in an Old Fashioned Sit Down since they want to propose a way for us to get in earlier, before Villa Boheme' gets under Contract and Sold. So we'll see how that works out?
This part of the Exhibit was my Favorite, stacks of colorful Plastic Frogs! *LOL* At Pueblo Boheme' I'd like to have Art Installations scattered about the Property along Walking Paths and Meditation spots.
The lyrics of Jefferson Airplane's "White Rabbit" looped thru my Head as I was Viewing this part of the Exhibit! Which is kinda how I've been Feeling lately anyway... like I've fallen down some Crazy Rabbit Hole since it's all been utter Madness lately! *LOL*
