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.
