Das Move...

I'm not recalling if I said this or not, but we're pretty confident that we're moving on Saturday, November 3. I'm taking the first and second off, and we're going to have about two weeks to shuttle things back and forth by car, so...hopefully, all that will be left is the big stuff. Mind, there's a lot of big stuff. Dad owns a pick-up truck...we may be able to smuggle some of the weird things over the week before.

Countdown to home ownership: four days!

Spent most of the weekend getting our current house ready for lease again...or napping, sadly. Not sure why, I'm not normally a nap person.

Hadn't mown the back lawn in about two years. I THINK Path might have mowed it when he was living with us, though. At some point over the last two, a number of tiny trees, about as thick as a thumb, sprouted. They were covered with teeny little thorns. Now, they're all gone, and I'm still finding teeny little thorns--but the back lawn is mowed. Cleaned every surface in the kitchen, even sweeping and mopping.

Whines did the unimaginable, disassembling the windows of the house and cleaning up four years of accumulated bugs, leaves and debris. Eew.

Remaining to do: clean up bedroom and master bathroom. Remove anything that might cause moral offense from the wall and cabinets. Keep close tabs on what boxes my mother and sister are unpacking. This is important. Some discussions I could avoid forever.

Packed the food processor. I think I can limp along a few weeks without it. Did not pack blender or popcorn maker. There are some important things in life.

Observed that we have five bottles of Kahluah in the house, two bottles of rum, several different fruit liquors, quite a well-stocked bar in fact. Nobody in the house drinks. Where did these things come from? Well...I know where the Kahluah and Bailey's came from. There are, again, some important things in life. I'm not sure about the vodka, though.

We have lots and lots of alcohol in our apartment. It will actually be amusing should I ever move out as the bar is mine. Almost none of the alcohol barring the wine is.

Good luck with the move, I'm venturing to guess I won't be harrassing you much till you're settled *grin*

I suppose it's a couple of weeks away. I'm vaguely amused that you spent the weekend napping...I never nap either and I was falling over right and left over the weekend.

Yep, it's a close deadline, but not close enough to give up important leisure activities :) Lord knows, if I gave up role-playing (in all its manifold forms) I'd have a lot more free time, but what would be the point?

I don't know what the napping was about. I think I only lost maybe two or three hours, but it's kind of unusual for me...

I miss roleplaying, I keep wanting to start an online buffy game or something but I'd have to run it with means a lot of work.

If it's not pouring tomorrow I'll be scanning a bad hyena picture, btw :-)

Now I'm curious about your scanner--is it located on the back porch, or is it solar-powered? :)

Ah...I don't own a scanner. I do, however, have one taking up valuable desk space at work. Thus I do my scanning here but if it's pouring I probalby shouldn't schlep my poor abused sketched books to work.

I've thought about getting one for home but A) Costs money and B) have no place to put it :-)

*looks puzzled*

I'm not sure what you said is a legal construct in the English language. I said I had five bottles...that's not the same as extra! :)

But let me know when you want me to bring over a Kahluah pecan pie :)

Kahlua pecan pie? I can't even imagine what those flavors are like together, but it must not be too far from having coffee and pecan pie, hmm?

It's more like a serving of incredibly rich kahluah caramel. Very tasty...it calls for very thin slices with a lot of whipping cream, though!

Of course we're renting a u-haul! But I'm hoping we can get some of the little crap out of the way over the next two weeks, so that it's less wear and tear on the people who help us out.
