Well, here it is, the last entry from 34th and Hennepin. While there’s still a lot to do, we’re more packed than not, and I should be reasonably prepared when I meet the movers at the storage locker in Northeast a little over 10 hours from now. They’ll be moving the big stuff, I’ll be moving the small stuff. There’s a 10-foot Budget moving truck parked out in front packed top to bottom, so I’ll be making two trips. I thought I could be creative with packing and make 10 feet work, but in retrospect should have gone with the 16-footer.
The cat and pigs make their move on Thursday before we close on the condo. The apartment won’t be ready for habitation until Saturday morning–the kitchen and bathroom are still being worked on–so Lisa and I will be camping in Eagan for the next few days. There’s some irony to that, but it’s not interesting enough for me to take the time necessary to explain it.

I got thrown for a bit of a loop Friday afternoon when my workday was interrupted to get a call from my dad. He and my mom were calling from just outside Chippewa Falls, and they were about two hours away from arriving in Minneapolis for an unannounced visit. For some reason they thought we were moving next weekend, and decided it would be good to visit Lisa and I while they could still see the condo. Needless to say, that threw our weekend off quite a bit, but it was good to see them.
Okay, no time for sitting around typing. Back to work.

Well, not quite, as I have to be a geek for a moment: This is my 200th post since moving to WordPress. Huh.
