Ok, gas prices may have topped $4.00, but $6.05 at Dunkin’ Donuts for a cup of coffee and four donuts???

Debra and I are in Virginia this week to close on the house. The movers come today to pack us up. Chaos will doubtless ensue.

~~~~~ ~~~~~ ~~~~~

9:45am - The movers are here. Yay!

11:00am - Debra is waffling.

“Are you sure we shouldn’t just put everything in storage and rent a furnished place?”

“We already rented an unfurnished place.”

“We can cancel it.”

“The movers leave for California tomorrow. When do you propose to find the furnished place?”

“I don’t know.”

“Listen, we have a good plan - we should stay with it. Making last minute changes like this are what leads to catastrophe.”


1:53pm - Debra just came upstairs, where I am working, and told me it’s really starting to look like we are moving. Then she asked me to project manage some lunch, so I guess I’ll do that now.

5:27pm - Finished my workday. Debra has been wrapping her seashells in tissues for the last hour or so and carefully packing them. The movers are still here…it looks like they have a couple more hours of work ahead of them. I am sooooooo glad we did not have to do all this packing ourselves.

11:29pm - The packing is done and the movers have gone. We made it to Buffalo Wing Factory in Sterling for hot wings and Newcastle before they closed. Well, after they closed, actually. A manager told me they were open until 11:00 when I called at 9:30 when, in actuality, they closed at 10:00. So when we arrived at 9:57 and were told the kitchen had closed for the night…well, fortunately the manager ‘fessed up and told us he had told us the wrong closing time and that he himself would prepare our order - which he did - and we ate our wings and drank our nut brown ale and listened to the Red Hot Chili Peppers and CCR and The Cars while the closing crew Bisseled and gave the manager hell for messing up. And then we drove home and now it’s time for bed. The mover will come again tomorrow to load the truck at 9:30am and start the long drive to California.
