I am in my new place-a rental house. It took about two hours to relocate nearly all of my belongings. It included one van load, two pickup truck loads, and two trailer loads. So far, I am glad that I now have a garage for my car to live in, a washer and dryer in the basement to use, and only three steps to my front door. It is going to be an adjustment to not have as many closets (my old apartment had seven), but overall I have more space. My bedroom and kitchen are organized, but I have about a half dozen boxes with odds and ends that need to be sorted and stored-photos, letters, and other random items. A couple more perks of the apartment-I live one and a half blocks closer to work (it is now two and a half blocks instead of four), I have a three season porch and a backyard, and it is on a quieter street. Thanks to Cathy, Leland, Marcia, Joel, Bill, Snookie and Vi for all their help.
If you are a relative, you may be getting a note in the mail shortly with my new address (if you haven't already). My phone number has not changed.
