Moving Van: check

The movers came and went on Tuesday. It was a gruelling day that started at sunrise and went until the truck pulled away at about 5:20. We're now finishing the big cleanup; loading our pickups and putting the rest into storage with friends and family until we come down for Lizzie's wedding in June. Right now we are enjoying the peaceful "zen" of camping out in a pretty much empty house. We were planning on driving away tomorrow AM, but things are pushed back a bit and we may not be going until Sunday morning (there was a SNAFU with the dump trailer, to the tune of it never showed up today. Argggh.). A couple of teenagers from down the street will be coming tomorrow to help with the last of the hauling and toting (and throwing out, of course). I can't wait to be driving up I-5...

There you is! I thought that maybe you'd packed up your computers already. Find any interesting things in dark corners? Did you check the attic? Maybe they put valuable stuff up there early on.

You mean like the kayak? I'm serious, Roy!

OK...the dump trailer is supposed to be showing up any minute (not holding my breath.) Yes, Gordon (and Wayne) have checked the attic: nothing special there that hadn't been eaten by vermin.

The kayak...guess who's backyard it's going in until June? Gordon has declared that all of those "pikes" etc. are going to max out the roof rack. I promise all that stuff is REALLY going away right after the wedding!!!

A kayak?! Oh, I believe you Charlotte. All this has started me to really reconsider all my piles o' stuff. If nothing else all the boxes of odd stuff will have notes in them explaining what it is and why I have them. That's in case something happens to me. But maybe I'll leave a few baggies of change around just to keep 'em confused.

Need a coffin box? :o)

Noooooooooo!!!!!! I need to get rid of stuff, too. But I was kinda sorry I didn't have it for my kid when he was going through his Goth phase.
