I moved 7 boxes of stuff to the new house last night. Like moving the ocean with a teaspoon. The thing that is going to slow the moving process down so much is the sorting through stuff to decide what to keep and what to get rid of. Moving the stuff will go quickly once we can get done sorting it.
Depending on what Le Duke has in store for me today, I might be venturing over to the house to finish up the cabinet doors. Move some stuff, put a coat of paint on, move some more stuff, another coat of paint. That’s how it has been going. The only other major thing that needs to be painted is the trim and the ceilings. I know, I know. We should have painted that first, but I needed walls to be painted in order to move stuff in. My goal is get moved before next Wednesday. Is that a realistic goal? Not really, but we can all fantasize from time to time.
I still need to measure the backsplash. I keep forgetting to do that. I keep forgetting to do a lot of things. Like write articles for the City Wire. Well not totally forget. I just got busy this past weekend and didn’t do it on Sunday like I normally do. I had to piece one together Monday night.
Speaking of writing, Better Homes and Gardens makes this awesomely handsome writing desk. I saw it at Wal*Mart yesterday. Hold on a second and I’ll see if I can find a photo of it. Ah, here it is. Isn’t it handsome. It is about twenty bucks cheaper in the store than it is online. I guess since they will eat the cost of shipping it to your local Supercenter, they’ll just charge you twenty bucks more. If that makes any sense whatsoever. Anyway, I like. Not, that I can go spending $150 on a desk. And I don’t want any of you to get the bright idea to spend it either. If you want to buy me something, save that sentiment until I put a list together and force all of you to shower us with gifts under the pretense of having a House Warming Party.
There is this wholesale joint down the road from Little Peddler’s house and Pancake Land said they had a lot of desks. Maybe I’ll go over and check them out.
Well, Le Duke just appeared with an itinerary, so I must away to work for a little bit. More soon. ~SC
