Move? What move? Uh-0h, things have gotten complicated. The Great Move is being moved. We have had to postpone it. Note, I said postpone, not cancel. Not to bore you with my medical problems, I thought I could handle the move despite all the pain issues I’ve been having with my back. The plan was to move, then have the inevitable spinal surgery that’s been in the works for several months. Well, the back didn’t agree with the timing of our decision and it let me know it. I tried to overrule its objection several times, but to no avail. Just for spite, it increased its intensity. I was reduced to a cantankerous cane weilding, floor crawling , wounded wad of whimpering kibble…or something like that. I could just about lift an empty box, let along pack one full.
So, our original decision has been reversed: surgery now, recover, then pack up and move. The one thing that is really messed up is that we will not be able to take advantage of the timeliness of listing the house when parents are pursuing a summer move into an “A-rated” elementary school neighborhood, which ours is. The positive is that now I am no longer in a rush so I can slow the pace. One thing is for sure…I am NOT unpacking what I’ve already packed.
During the early stages of packing I was able to set aside a lot of stuff for The Great Garage Sale. I have decided the show must go on. As soon as I am able, I will get the sale organized and Macy’s will just have to suffer the loss of business for one day. I’ll let you know how that goes, probably from the deck of the new yatch I will have purchased from the Great Garage Sale profits.
Okay, now then, you are all caught up on The Not So Great Move, Yet. We will resume all that next fall if everything goes well in the O.R. Hmmm…I wonder if my blog should cover The Great Surgery!
