I am very grateful to darxus and lilbjorn, who answered cathijosephine’s post asking for help tonight. darxus and cathijosephine spent part of their scheduled date filling a 20-yard dumpster, and lilbjorn helped me clean the kitchen and took the last carload of stuff to Quincy with me.
I’m also very grateful to surrealestate for a delicious and relaxing Thanksgiving-dinner break on Thursday. I needed it.
I don’t think this is quite the most gruelling experience I’ve gone through, but it’s certainly in the top ten and almost certainly in the top five. But I am truly blessed to have the friends, the family (chosen and born), and the tribe I do. My life is good. (And it’s better now that the Malden house is cleared out, and I can start paying attention to my new home.)
