07:48 – Ooh Rah! We’ve finished packing up the stuff we need to take along to the closing next Monday, and gotten it loaded into our vehicles. Other than last-minute stuff, that’s it for this phase. Now we return to packing up stuff for the next trips up: clothing, LTS food, Christmas stuff, and so on. Barbara’s goal is to be completely moved up to Sparta in time to have Christmas there. I think that may be optimistic, but we’ll see. The movers are coming tomorrow to give us an estimate, and we have no idea when they’ll be able to move the furniture. But that really doesn’t matter much. We can certainly be living in Sparta by Christmas, but we may still be using the air mattress, folding tables and chairs, and so on.
I’m counting on Barbara to keep us organized. Time was when I could keep everything in my head, including detailed to-do lists. I can’t do that any more, so Barbara’s organizing skills are critical. That also means she can’t yell at me if I forget something.
Incidentally, my apologies for not being very responsive to comments. We just have so much going on at the moment that I don’t really have the time to keep up with them. I hope that’ll change once we’ve closed on the house and pretty much moved up there.
Back to packing.
