11:56 am - okay.
We are moved. We are not quite reconnected; I am at the gelato shop around the corner - the Greenlake Bottega Italiana using their free WiFi and enjoying their delicious coffee. Still best to get in touch with me by text or telephone. I can read my email on my phone with relative ease, but it is difficult to reply thusly. (I only have a semi-smart phone, I guess, in a manner of speaking.) So if I don't have much internet presence at the moment, that's why. I'm still open to invitations and so forth from Seattle friends. :)

We are unpacking. Movers were a good choice, yet they had some odd quirks. Everything went into boxes, even some empty boxes (that is, plastic storage crates) that I thought they had agreed to put clothes into. The kitchen trash can (without its contents, thankfully) went into a box. (Ew.) My laundry bag? In a box. My guess is the reasoning is geometrical: if everything is in boxes, you can stack it in the truck. [Sort of like the reasoning behind the semi-mythical square tomato.] Still, given the choice between spending time retrieving extra boxes and just putting the stuff that can stand alone in the truck in the truck standing alone... I don't know. ::shakes head:: They are supposed to retrieve the empty boxes - well, yesterday, so perhaps were would be a better verb - which will be nice, when it happens.

I watched myself go thru the resultant move-related round of stress reactions while at the same time being unable to do much about them beyond holding still and avoiding choices that would have a negative impact on the situation. It wasn't fun, although I suppose I can at least file it under 'educational'. Stayed sober. Go me.

Welcome to the neighborhood. It's a swell one. I'm pedaling by on my bike in a bit. Perhaps I'll see you?

If they haven't booted me out! :) Guess that means I should get a refill on my coffee so they will let me stay a little longer...

No need to wait if you're busy. I'm easily distracted. I will not remember your face--TBI side effect--sorry--so if you see me you'll need to say so.

No problem - if I see you I'll jump up and wave. :) Enjoy your ride either way! It's a beautiful day. I'm catching up on several days without internet access, doing paperwork, making sure bills are paid, all that fun stuff.

We must have missed each other by just a few minutes :(

I am sure there will be other times!

I'm glad the move went OK. Could you email me your new address? I'd really appreciate it. I have something of yours I need to return.

And, uh, Happy Belated Birthday. *hangs head in shame*

Working on it... If it's the B5 books, don't worry.

Thanks for the birthday wishes!
