The time is quickly approaching, and it’s coming far faster than I had hoped. Yeah, I’ve mostly packed everything already — I did it before I put the house on the market — but there are still things to sort through and pack… and I have to make three “piles.” Stuff that is going in the moving van and I won’t see again for 2 weeks; stuff that is going to my aunt out in the country (couch, chair, table, stuff like that); and stuff that I will carry with me on the plane.
That last one is the toughest. What stuff do I need to take with me for 2 weeks’ survival? Clothes, obviously, but also stuff like my iPod and PowerBook, my various important papers, and of course, the dog.
The hard part is going to be the last few days I’m here, because there’s simply so much happening — potentially all at once. The movers are coming either next Saturday or Monday. The car will be picked up for shipping sometime Saturday, Sunday, or Monday. I’m moving my furniture to my aunt’s on Sunday. And I close on the sale of the house on Monday. So, this means that it’s quite possible that the movers will all show up on Monday while I’m out closing on the house. They can’t yet tell me what day or time they’ll be here.
Meanwhile, if they come on, say, Saturday, I’ll find myself with an empty house, no TV or internet, and no car, for 3 days. That alone would be enough to drive me completely batty.
I guess what I’m trying to say is that blog entries may be few and far between starting next week. Sorry.
