T -2 Days

The last time we moved I swore up and down that it'd be the last time I did it myself.  In the fourteen plus years that Michele and I have been together we've lived together at nine different addresses, each time we've moved we've picked up more and more crap, and each time I've been solely responsible for getting everything from point A to B.  Don't get me wrong, I've had help every time, but sometimes the help isn't all it's cracked up to be.  This time, I'm not lifting a finger.  Turns out it isn't exactly cheap getting our shit packed across the Sound, but thankfully someone else is picking up the tab.

The packers are showing up tomorrow morning to put the entirety of our life into cardboard boxes, Thursday the truck shows up to get loaded, and Friday morning it all gets unloaded into our temporary rental house in Port Angeles.  All we have to do is unpack, and that's going to be pretty minimal since the plan is to move again (still in PA) within six to eight months, again on someone else's dime.

I've still got to come back to the old place for a few days once it's empty to do a little paint and patch work but on the whole it's going to be playtime for us through the month of August.  A trip to Portland is in the works, and maybe a little something else.  It's certainly going to be nice to not think about working on the house for a little while.

Just for shits and giggles, here's a gratuitous picture of my kid, because I guess that's who I am now.

I hope all the packing and moving is going well. Have a great time at your new home; come back to visit often!
