  • Mood:


The old house is cleared out and cleaned. Our fourth dumpster will be picked up tomorrow, full. docorion’s and my stuff (and that of sionnagh, who had a lot of stuff stored in Malden) is all physically at the Quincy house, if not remotely unpacked. We have our fire certificate (which required a 1½-week delay and a large amount of electrical work), and directions to the closing tomorrow morning. I am fed, courtesy of the yummy late-night Chinese takeout place nearby. I’m about to have a beer, take a hot shower, and crawl into bed.

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.)
