Tick, tock (ooooh, bahahaha)

Major props to ANYONE who can name the song that the title comes from!

Holy crap, y'all...I've got about a month and 9 days. Until I move. Several thousand miles away. Holy crap.

Everyone is asking me if I'm just so excited, and I really am, but nervous too. I've known what I wanted to do when I grew up for approximately 7 years, but now it's changing every other day. I'm looking at bedding and winter coats online--I don't know the first thing about winter, but I guess I'll learn! Holy crap!

On a side note, I really should become more confident at doing my own laundry. *sigh*

A month and 9 days.

I've specifically been avoiding counting the days until I leave because whenever I do that, time flies faster. Y'all, this summer has flown by. This entire year has flown by! Holy CRAP.

A few more things:

1) I had an entirely relaxing and indulgent weekend. Yes, you may hate me. How was yours?
2) I got the ring and the bracelet in (finally)! I'll post pictures in soon.
3) How am I going to leave the city in which I grew up and move to a city in which I know NO ONE??? (Well, I think several of you blog-readers live there. Which, even though I don't know you, does make me feel better.) How am I going to survive several weeks at a time without beating D. at Yahtzee?!?!?!? (Though we did go to Target yesterday and buy a small Webcam. I suppose we can play over the computer?)

Holy crap.

A month and 9 days.

A month and 9 days.

A month and 9 days.

Holy crap.

How exciting! Scary, but so incredibly exciting! Congrats! :) How is the packing going?

The Nanny said...

Well...pretty much non-existant as of now. I'm actually going to be buying all the stuff I need, really, up there (i.e., bedding, a big coat/boots, storage, etc.) so I don't have to pay shipping on everything to get it up there. My biggest dilemma as of now? Trying to figure out which books to take! I want to take all my books!

ok so first of all, if you want to get more confident at doing laundry, you can feel free to wash all my clothes for me! and dry them! and iron them! and hang them up! and sort them! and.... well... you get the picture!

second (of all) i'm incredibly, completely, and incomprehensibly jealous that you got that bracelet. i want one.

third (of all) you said "holy crap" SIX times in one blog entry.

just thought i'd point that out.

Monica H said...

holy crap I didn't realize you were leaving that soon. I'm going to miss you nanny, even though I've never met you.

But because we live relatively close to eachother, I've always felt like I could just pick right up and drive to your house. But I can't do that anymore because you'll be somewhere cold- which means NO WHERE near here. Bummer!

But I hope you have a fabulous time. Start packing now so you won't be so rushed when the time come. One month and 9 days- holy crap!

Monica said...

Awww.. you better keep blogging!! Somewhere cold... I'm very jealous.

d said...

you did not beat me.... that lie does not even deserve a comment.... but you did not beat me

The Nanny said...

Don't worry, Monica, I'll still keep blogging :-) I'm actually working with Andi @ Scrappin Blog Designs to design me a new college-y header!

And D., my friend...our game of Mille Borne tonight begs to differ.

d said...

Oh Nanny... I cannot believe that you would lie to your bloggers so. You know taht you have never beaten me at mille borne. in fact, you have never beaten me at any game. we can play yahtzee over the webcam, but i don't want you to cry in front of your roomates when you lose so badly.

The Nanny said...

I still have the scorecard. I will post it if necessary. Then we'll see who's crying.

Mwahahaha!

mkv said...

I'm incredibly jealous, because I've lived here all my life and never had the guts to move. Good for you!

this post has way to many comments but i had to ask:

what song does the title come from?

Minivan Mom said...

Deep sigh.

Okay, is the average age of your blog reader 18? Please tell me. Go ahead. MAKE me feel old, because I guaran-damn-tee you that no self-respecting GenXer canNOT hear "tick tock get up stop" and not launch into some Color Me Badd.

Your blog readers should be ashamed. ASHAMED I SAY.

The Nanny said...

Sorry, Minivan Mom, that is incorrect...

The title actually comes from an obscure German song that my dear (German) friend Sophie put onto an obscure German CD that she gave me. Among other songs are ones entitled "Transsexual Transylvania" and "Discovery Channel"...the latter of which is actually quite funny and dirty. I recommend YouTube-ing it.

Minivan Mom said...

Well I cry foul on the whole contest, because the question was "what song does the title come from". You didn't say the TITLE of the song was the title of the post...but that the song contained the words in the title of the blog post.

And my song does, indeed, contain the words from the title.

So I am technically correct, even if it was not what you were thinking of.

So there.

:)

The Nanny said...

*sigh* Fine, fine...

*applauds* Minivan Mom for finding a loophole and awards her the Grand Prize (which is knowing that you've won) for a technicality.

Allyson said...

I have to say, Nanny, that the song Minivan Mom said, that's the first thing that came into my mind too. Minivan Mom I assure you I'm not 18. Thanks for the trip down memory lane.

The Nanny said...
