Tuesday night amid the boxes

We made a lot of progress today; there's six boxes and a tub of wargames all ready to go, and we ejected three bags of recyclables into the bin. A lot of that was old bills, Army paperwork from decades ago, and other miscellaneous papers that had somehow gotten jammed into boxes instead of being tossed out years ago. I'm sure I had a good reason for keeping them at the time...anyway, as much as I tried to avoid reading any of that stuff more than absolutely necessary to make a toss/keep decision, it was hard to resist the temptation to scan some of it. Well...I'm going to box up a few more books, games and papers before I go to bed a little later this morning, and fold up some T-shirts and pants for the backup suitcase.

Things should go faster tomorrow. There aren't any more boxes that need to be sifted through, just boxes that need to be taped together, have books & other items added, then taped shut. Most of my CDs have already been ripped and pulled from their cases, and those that haven't, well, I can wait a month or so to deal with them. I think even if James and I don't get any help tomorrow or Thursday we'll still have this done before the movers come on Friday. If I have to wait until early next week to collect the payout from my 401k so I can get the cleaners in here, well, so it goes. There's nothing I particularly have to be in DC for until the 18th, and even that is a Goonfleet thing that can be skipped if need be. We'll see what happens.

LATE UPDATE: Oh yeah - I may have a job waiting for me in the P.G. County schools. It's a job.
