Packing has quickly turned our apartment into a disaster. Boxes everywhere. All the nice things were packed away first, so the stuff still sitting around is all basic necessities and assorted (usually unnecessay) tidbits that don't belong with anything else. Me zeal wanes. I put down the tape and am going to bed.

. . .

And then: I walk by the 2nd bedroom/office. There is Brian, Star Trek opening credits blaring, and he's dusting a video game figurine. Apparently when I go to bed, he transforms into a charicature of his own nerdiness.

Moving: 1 week away

Packing has begun. Boxes, boxes, boxes, rolls of sticky tape, and crumpled newspaper. I've packed books and movies, clothes, shoes, frames and photo albums, board games and kitchen appliances, and it's only beginning to make a dent.

We will close early on the house, a week from today. We've hired movers for Sunday, for the heavy TV and mattresses, furniture, and hopefully get it done in one day. Saturday, we will have keys to our house and a whole day to ... sit on bare floors? Wander around and discover things? Lie in the hammock? Paint? Oooh, there's so much to think of doing. Maybe given the unavoidable mess that will come with moving in, we should enjoy the house empty for a day first.
