The Captain left for work yesterday with two bags of Christmas lights, a hand blender and hair straightening iron, Peanut's old palace, and a half dozen other electronic gadgets all stuffed in the trunk of the car. A few hours later, a man from Nyon arrived at the door to take away the Captain's armoire. Today I lose my juicer, purchased only a month ago with my first paycheck from the school. Not that we can't take some or all of these things with us--we could--but peppering one's home with transformers is less than ideal. Replacements will be easily found on the other side. (Call me crazy, but I'm looking forward to garage sale season already.) Something tells me I'll have to replace the juicer retail, though. God, I'm going to miss it.

Bon voyage, Solaris!  Parting is such sweet sorrow!


  1. Maybe you should sell some of it on ebay get some cash for target. That juicer looks fabulous i sense a craving for fresh orange juice coming on and i don't think tropricana is going to cut it.
