Well…with 2 days to go before movers, and 1 day to go before some volunteer help with kattale and her minivan (plus I need to be at the new place to receive the Rogers guy on Sat., so that tosses part of my packing productivity) I reflect on where I am at.
First….there really is a crapload of stuff that I am not taking, and I don’t think Helen is. I have an appt. with 1800 GOT JUNK next week. I suspect we will be loading a lot of it in the garage, and just telling them to take anything they see in there. I largely gave up on trying to organize the junk, as well as pack. I am just going to pack what I am taking, make sure the furniture has a clear path, and then come back after the move and see what’s left and start making goodwill piles, filling garbage bags, or just stacking.
My stuff is going well. Kitchen is 99% packed (utensils, and a few bowls to go). My clothes are mostly unpacked (winter stuff is packed), but they should go fast. My office is about half way packed, the computer desk being one of the last things I will pack I suspect. I need to fill a box or three with dry goods from the pantry downstairs ….all told though….it’s all stuff I can get done tomorrow I think (though I may need to snag a few more boxes).
Helen still has a bunch of things of hers here still, though she got most of it in her move on Tuesday. Hopefully we can get that out of the way before I do my full move, I don’t need the movers grabbing the wrong items in confusion.
My run today was longer…closer to 35 minutes….though I did do the full 5.2 km path I had (I often cut a corner or two). I took several short walking breaks though….I couldn’t push through the run. It’s actually been several days since I ran….what with one thing and another….so it goes to show I need to keep on top of it if I want to see improvement.
