I really thought the worst part would be the packing and the physical moving. That got accomplished and my wife and I spent our first night in our new house on Wednesday night. It was a late night and I didn’t get much sleep…maybe four hours…that first night.
But I was wrong about the packing and the physical moving being the worst part. It’s the unpacking and figuring out where things are (i.e., in which boxes) and then deciding where to put all of the unpacked things (i.e., organizing), that has been the worst part. And then breaking up all of the empty cardboard boxes and creating bundles of neatly folded packing paper the movers used to wrap almost everything they placed in all those boxes is nuts. I can’t even fit my car into the garage because it’s full of cardboard and paper. And after two days, we’re barely half way done.
Oh, I forgot to mention tasks like getting my cable, internet, and WiFi services up and running. And then attaching my doorbell camera and Nest thermostats to the WiFi. Yikes.
At night I think about all that still must get done, so sleep has been restless at best. The truth is, I’m exhausted. And I haven’t had time to be on WordPress for the past two days. Not even to look at my stats or to read you comments on my advanced-scheduled posts.
And for that I really apologize. I think it will be at least another week before things will settle down enough for me to get back in action.
But the good news is that I also haven’t had time to watch any cable news shows or even the late night political comics. I’m sure I haven’t missed much, right? There’s not much going on these days, is there?
Anyway, I’m sorry for all of your comments that I haven’t had time to read and respond to and for missing so many of your great posts. But I’ll be back soon.
