Well, that was. . . surreal.

Movers have come and gone, and most of my stuff has gone with them. Salvation Army's due in the next little bit to get almost all of the rest, leaving me with the cat, a couple of quilts, and the computer - the real essentials in life.

The place looks like. . . well, sorta like it's been lived in by a family of bears, who have now woken up from hibernation and trundled off in search of food. Messy, in other words. But I've alloted all day tomorrow to clean, and from past experience I know it's a lot easier to clean up an apartment when there's nothing to speak of in the apartment. Then load up the computer on Wednesday, find the cat (she's hiding - the movers spooked her) and away we go to DC. Whee!

For those keeping score, I didn't close out my last case. Drafted 40 pages, but kept getting rewrites that kept me from drafting the final section. Oh, well. Someone else can finish it out. I'm mildly disappointed, but I did my best. Now off to the private sector, lots of money, lots of work. Hope I can fake it til I figure out what I'm doing! Wish me luck.

Update: well, thanks to the hit and run efforts of the local Salvation Army folks (in and out in under 5 minutes - these guys have a real future in B&E!), I now possess basically nothing but cleaning supplies. *grin* This part of the moving process has actually gone very well! Hope it's a good omen.

Hope so! Still planning on cleaning up tomorrow, and heading out Wed. morning. Still plan on bringing you your chairs tomorrow - can I leave the truck when I do so?

Depending on when I get in and how long it takes me to do all the paperwork, maybe dinner with you and penknife and the VSP?

You are welcome to leave the truck! Do you think I might bother you for a ride to take my car to the garage to get brake work done? I've been putting it off because I didn't want to be stuck sitting at the garage.

And yes, dinner with us! Whee! It will be so good to have you about!

We in NC will miss you desperately! But I hope you have an easy move and find some incredibly cheap airfare somewhere awesome.

You could even stay at hostels... The ones in Dublin, Edinburgh, and Paris are just fine. ;)

Thanks, love! *grin*

I am just unreasonably wiped right now. Or perhaps not totally unreasonably, as I was up til 3 am last night and then was up at 6:30 this morning. Plus, yanno, having all my stuff moved.

Let you know if I run away. Thanks for all the tips on airfare!

Oh, and tell Griffdog the movie he has to rent is called Hatley High.
