We got started at 11:30 this morning and had the trailer fully loaded by about 3:00 PM. I'm especially impressed because those three hours were interspersed with several stops for food, cigarettes, soda, etc. I'd say we put in about 2 hours of honest work. With the amazing help of roho, enveri, our friends H.K. and G.K. we not only loaded out the bed, recliner, steamer chest and other heavy items but about seven extra boxes of stuff that were packed "on the fly." The World's Smallest Flat is now, at this point, about the World's Smallest & Emptiest Flat. All that remains are some kitchen items that will be boxed up tomorrow, a fan, a window-mount air conditioner (debating on leaving that for the landlady, I have no use for it at Z'ha'dum) and various other "small, loose" items. And the cats. I'd be remiss if I didn't mention that Diva and Jazz are still here.
Alas, by the time we were done unpacking the trailer and drinking our beer it was time for Roho and Genet to head to Addison to catch up with chebutykin and her crew for dinner and drinky-delights at Dave & Busters. Curmudgeon's ankle was bothering her and I had to return the trailer I'd rented, so we had to pass. Total bummer, but I vow we will make up for it!
Tonight lady_curmudgeon and I are camping out in the bedroom using a mattress roll and a sleeping bag I brought back from the house. There's no TV and no computer (just my laptop from work). Rugged!
