feste_sylvain and grntserendipity were a huge help yesterday. grntserendipity used her Res Life skills to kick Elayna into gear, and I was pleasantly surprised at how much got done! I begin to think that perhaps this is not impossible.
MOVING DAY IS SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 25!
We'll likely be taking carloads of boxes over before then, soon as we have access. But Saturday, February 25 is when we'll have the U-Haul and be moving the beds, dressers, tables, et cetera. We could really use your help! We'll provide the customary pizza, beer, and soda. Let me know if you can be there? Potential book-reshelving party immediately afterward or the next day!
Today's priorities are finishing up my almost-done bedroom and office and structuring things so they crowd us less and are less precarious. omnisti arrives tomorrow and will be here almost through moving day (except when he'll be at the Boskone hotel), and we have another sekrit guest, so the house needs to be extra-navigable. Our great hope is that we can get them the first-month check today and get access for this Saturday (I only have panels Friday and Sunday) so we can clear this out a bit. I'm in a perpetual state of wanting to scream. I really do not deal well with mess of this magnitude.
We may not need any more boxes! We have a lot of boxes strewn around our living room right now. So I will ask you to please not bring any more over right now. Bubble wrap and packing paper, on the other hand, will likely continue to be a need.
Through the move, Elayna has rehearsal til 5. We have multiple houseguests. I have Boskone, BARCC stuff, and a Flogging Molly concert, and we have four college visits next week with Elayna (Hampshire, Wheaton, Simmons, Salem State). Judah is milling out Kickstarter rewards on his Kikori. This... is a very busy few weeks.
We can do this. *determined nod*
