Delay of Game

Due to scheduling conflicts, the move will now be taking place on Friday morning.


In the meantime, I'm busier than a one-armed paperhanger, trying to make sure that everything's ready to go. The roofer is coming today to put in a ridge vent and vented soffits - the attic had no ventilation at all, which isn't good. The cable guy comes tomorrow afternoon, the phone gets switched on Thursday, and the mailman FINALLY started delivering mail to the new place, after several phone calls and a visit to the post office.

And lists? Ay yi yi have I got some lists. Stuff to do, stuff to take, stuff to fix. Looking back, I really should have taken this week off from work. Note to self: Next time, do not try to move an entire household on evenings and weekends. Gah.

But! I really do think I won the neighbor sweepstakes. Last night while I was mowing the lawn, my new neighbor came over with tomatoes and lettuce and basil and parsley from her garden, and then came back over with broccoli salad, which looks kind of ... umm ..... dubious, but I'll give it a try at lunch today. Thanks, neighbor! I just need to figure out something I can give her/do for her in return.

Craptastic. Aren't you glad you decided to take all month, though? Really, as long as you are out and broom clean by next Monday, you should be good to go.

I am in teaching gear-up mode. I hear you about the proliferation of listitude.
