Quick Update

The movers showed up right about nine on the dot this morning. By five or six today they (all three of them — one nearing seventy years old) will have accomplished what we, not doubt, would have made a hash out of even with weeks at our fingertips. Our apartment will be packed up and loaded on a truck bound for Tennessee. The plan originally was for packing today and truck loading tomorrow. But an amused job leader (or whatever you call the mover in charge. I call him Felix) told Damon that we are a) organized (Which makes me want to cry for what other home owners must face when they move. Because I assure you that he is wrong.) and b) minimalists (Closer to true) and so they will be able to do both today. Presumably, that buys them tomorrow to get started on a bigger job or to loaf. They are absolutely delightful and we are showing our appreciation by staying out of their way.

We’re hiding out in a friend’s apartment. A few hours ago we went over to check in. When I went through the front door I did what I always do. I slipped off my shoes and left them just inside. Half an hour later when we were leaving I said, “Hey, where are my shoes?” Long pause. Packer in the bedroom (Bob) says, “Um. I might have packed them.” To which I say, “My bad!” So I will be flip flopping to Target to get a replacement pair, as now I won’t see my favorite walking shoes again for a few months.

  1. We had packers for the move from Miami to Atlanta. BEST THING EVER. Especially since it was all paid for by Bill’s company.

  7. A-men. I cannot imagine the pain of packing for myself again after having this perk for the past two moves.
