Two More Nights

With the tag sale over, a huge section of the garage and first floor have been repatriated. For the first time in weeks the house is less messy than the day before. It still looks like burglars were here!

In retrospect our move would have made a perfect Gantt Chart. So many deadlines. So many actions that had to be completed within a window of time–not too early, not too late.

For instance, the cable boxes and phone modem go back to Comcast tomorrow. There was no way we could have done that earlier.

Helaine is taking me out for Father’s Day dinner at 5:00. In retrospect, not the best use of our time, but I’m looking forward to it. We both need a little decompression.

We’re down to the point where most of what’s left are odd shaped pieces that will have to be bubble wrapped. We still have loads of boxes to pack.

The movers arrive Tuesday morning. They will do some last minute packing, especially more delicate items. After that we head out. We’ll be reunited with our stuff in a few weeks.

We’re almost done. All we need accomplish are two house closings, a cross-country drive, delivery of new furniture, craftsmen adding additional features to our new home, unpacking our Connecticut stuff, changing our addresses with everyone and collapsing.

There’s probably more. I’m really looking forward to my opportunity to collapse.

  1. Noticed that the largest full moon of the year will be June 23 – and this time, you will not share that moment with us on Rocky Top – boy if I remember, wasn’t it cold last time??

  2. No need to collapse. I’m babysitting in the AM over on Hillview Av. so I’ll bring the kids over to help out Geoff. Run for your lives!!! LOL

  3. Wishing you and helaine a safe trip and much happiness
    In your new home. But, remember please post what you
    Were feeling as you are leaving your driveway for the very last time.

  4. My wife and I will definitely miss you. It’s been lonely on the weather forecasting here without you. Best of luck in your next half of your life. Another adventure in your journey through this world.

  5. No doubt about it….moving sucks! I know I’ve moved 5 times in the last 4 years. Hopefully I won’t have to do it again any time soon. I’m approaching my 1 year anniversary where I am now. Last week I just pulled 3 boxes of books out of storage to be placed on long-empty shelves (wish you’d had a small bookcase available yesterday!)

  6. Good luck with the move! Enjoy the drive – I’m hoping you’ll have great weather and lots of fun.

    (Can we get one last picture of Doppler before you go?)
