Boxes, boxes everywhere,
dust and cobwebs in my hair.
Shelves are empty,
cupboards bare.
Boxes, boxes everywhere.

Looking for the bubble wrap,
searching for the tape.
Looking forward to the nap,
I know I probably won’t take.

Done with project one,
now on to two and three.

That’s as high as I will count today,
to keep my sanity.

Seven more days of messy,
seven more nights of my bed bliss.

Two weeks of hotel limbo,
my bed is what I’ll miss.

(Written seven days ago. Don’t think I quite finished it.)


We are finally moving. After almost a year of keeping immaculate for showings. The house was sold several times, but fell out of escrow when untruths were discovered. In the end, there were three buyers interested at once.

We are off to Arizona. Have to be out of here by the 28th and we won’t get the keys to the new house until the middle of July.

On the ninth, my brothers wedding. Small and fairly casual. Lunch at Buca di Beppo. One of his favorites.

Here’s a peek at the house… from about a week ago.




The truck and moving crew will be here soon!

Happy week to you!
