Adios, cats, off to be boarded until November 17. You should have heard the opera on the drive to the vet/boarding facility! Wow.
This may be the last day I’m connected to the ‘net via my desktop iMac. My home phone is going down tomorrow – a number I’ve had for 23 years. I will have a land line at the other end, and eventually I’ll add a cell phone.
The chaos here has risen to a crescendo. Packers are due at 9:00, at which time the packing supervisor will go through and tell us the yes-and-no’s of packing our stuff. Everything they say they won’t pack & take we have to 1) take in the car 2) give to some hapless soul, or 3) toss. Since we’ve already done all the #2 we can (take that any way you want to) it will be 1 or 3. Fact: my 1999 Acura CL is not a large car. We expect the back seat to be pretty full, the trunk absolutely jammed. Space is at a premium. Right now, I think there is more to go into the car than there is room in the car. Car packing excitement awaits, that will be tomorrow.
With the prints, pictures and original art down off the walls, the place is getting echo-y. It feels less like home and more like a way station, which is probably a good thing.
Thanks to all of you who have commented, giving your support, it’s really, really appreciated.
