Post #816 Updates and All

Hi Everyone! I’m very sorry for the lack of posts and all, but life has been very hectic for the past couple of weeks. This weekend has been no different.

We finally got confirmation of our move date from the new landlord so on Sept. 11th we’ll be taking the keys and having cable/internet installed so the move for work will be seamless. We’ve got the movers scheduled for the 18th to pack us up, and the 19th to put it all in the new place. We’ve been lucky, though, because we put up a “free” table to pile all the stuff we didn’t want to take with us, and it all disappeared! Lots of people asked why we didn’t sell it, and the answer was because it moved quicker when it was free. We still have more “free” stuff to put out, but with donations to charity, the free table, and judicious recycling we pared down what we’re going to move by about half. On the 11th, we’re taking some stuff down with us, then a couple of trips during the following week. The pack up on the 18th should be a breeze. The two main rooms that are left for clearing out are the kitchen, which is usually in such good order it won’t take long; and my office which has turned into a basic “catch-all”. We’ve got a lot of books to go through, and tearing my desk apart to give away, and boxing up games, and other odds and ends. So we’re good in that area.

But there’s sad news to report. I was four paragraphs into a very different post earlier today when we got news that the FiL had passed away this morning. He’d been in a “failure to thrive” situation for several weeks, and had been in the hospital and hospice care for most of it. He made the decision to forego medication and life support systems. He went home to his oldest son’s house middle of last week to be comfortable and with family. So a kind, gentle, generous, funny, and well-loved man has gone to rest.

Well, there’s the updates for now. Due to the upcoming tasks and challenges, I’m going to pull back from the blog until the move is completed. I will be back, and no later then Oct 1. Till then, take care of yourselves, and

as always,

  1. I’m so sorry to hear about your FIL. May he rest in peace. At least he was at home with his family when it happened. Good luck with your move. Stay safe.
