Huh.  All I can say is it's been a hell of a past few weeks.  I've dreamed of owning a house for years.  And years.  And I still wouldn't own one today if it weren't for Kris, for a multitude of reasons.  So for just over two weeks now we have owned our first house, and have spent much time either working there at the house, or packing and moving things here at the apartment.  Kris has done the lion's share of the packing, while I have done most of the physical carrying of the stuff and packing the cars.  At this point our apartment is beginning to look pretty empty.  When the actual moving day comes, it appears that really all that will be left is the furniture that is too large to fit in either of our cars.  I have to say that moving with a month long overlap is definitely the preferred way to do it, if you possibly can.  Also, I have now moved in Florida both in the middle of summer and the middle of winter.  Winter is definitely preferable.  It's still hot, sweaty work but at least you aren't completely exhausted after carrying one load up a flight of stairs.

Today is the last day off from work, so it's the last day to really get much of anything done at the house.  I am just about to head back up there and mow the lawn, put up some window shades in the master bedroom, and probably install some ledger boards for shelves in the utility room.  It's the last hurrah before I get buried in work again tomorrow.

Oh, one other random note:  it has been nearly three months since I stopped slavishly keeping track of my weight.  During that time I have also cut way back on my skating for a variety of reasons (but I will start back in as soon as we get moved).  I had no doubt that I had gained back a little weight.  Truth be told, I pretty much feared that I had gained back a *significant* amount of weight.  This morning I weighed myself for the first time in ages, and it turns out that I have only bounced back by less than ten pounds and I am still right around 250.  This makes me very happy.
