packing a whole house for moving just takes time. taping boxes, putting stuff in boxes, moving boxes to garage to get ready for the time when i'll put them on the truck. wrapping things in shrink wrap. in bubble wrap. taking things apart, making sure screws, bolts and fasteners are tagged and stored in a box that you won't forget about when you unpack and have to put it all back together... sigh...
It just takes time, which is why starting earl is important. but starting early means i'm in a bit of a state of limbo between packed and unpacked. I won't be fully packed until friday when i go pick up my truck. that means I have to work in a house that has only a couple seating surfaces left and fewer and fewer lamps that actually work.
I'll get to experience this exact same thing on the other side when I start to unpack - that can sometimes take longer.
I understand now why people pay other people to do this for them all in one day.
Hey, I just got back from Gamestop with my 12th replacement headset for my 360. For those of you who are not aware, my cat, Stella, is apparently on a strict headset wire diet, forcing me to buy headsets in bulk. They don't look or smell like cat food, but are somehow irresistible to felines. On a side note, I have a cat that needs a new home, I will even throw in the first headset at no charge.
Beware, all cats are inherently evil...it's in their nature.
I officially moved to Colorado in January, but hadn't actually moved all my stuff. That changes next week - loading up the truck and moving everthing out to Colorado Springs.
Going to be in the same school district as my kids. It's going to drive my loony ex-wife nuts that I'm now able to exercise my parental rights. The kids will feel a sense of relief that they will now be able to reach out to someone sane that actually knows what they are going through on a day to day basis. Living with their mother is probably akin to living in a pycho ward where the person in charge is actually the crazy one.
We'll see what happens. My presence usually has a catalytic impact on my ex where she starts to do crazy stuff. I have that affect on her.
