Tuesday, April 01, 2008Big Day
Moving day has arrived. I'll be up at 6 AM to get started, and my mission is to get everything from SE Portland to N Portland leaving no trace behind by the end of the day. Complicating matters is one huge thing that'll be happening in the afternoon and will suck up several hours of my time, but I'm not going to say any more about it for fear of jinxing it. Not that I believe in such things. If it goes my way, you'll be hearing plenty more about it. Just wish me luck.
But I'm here in my strawberry ice cream-pink room for the last time, eating a cookie and trying to relax before what will surely be a stressful day. If any motherfucker says "April Fools" to me, I might have to stab them.
I don't know exactly what my internet connectivity status will be in the new place, so if I'm unreachable for a couple of days, that's why.
I bet I won't be able to sleep tonight.
Update: As of 10:30 tonight, I have successfully completed all of my tasks for today. It was a fucking demanding day, but it all got done, and all pretty well at that. I'm now tucked into my fresh new bed in my new room, picking up a wireless signal from god knows where. The signal could be a little stronger, but the connection is fast.
Tomorrow I have to get up early again to take the van back, and then much of the day will be spent putting things away as best I can. I'm going to take it slowly, though. In the afternoon I have another session with the little girls, and the day after tomorrow it's back to work.
This is actually a nice little room. I think I can make it quite pleasant and comfortable.
Update, Wed, 7:45 AM: Ow. |
