Moving Day

This is another "classic" old photo from my archives. I took this with my Dad's camera in the 1970s, in his yard. Every once in a while we'd take the camera out and wander around, shooting whatever we saw. This particular shot is a pretty good depth-of-field experiment -- for a 12-year-old!

Today is the final leg of my protracted move out of New York City. Dave and I are taking a U-Haul into town this morning to retrieve my furniture, which I'd left in my apartment so it would show better. I'll be happy to have the rest of my stuff in New Jersey. This whole time many of my books and objets have been stored because we didn't have anywhere to put them, and our guest room has been a jumble of boxes and random, loose stuff. Now all that can be organized.

I can't remember whether I mentioned here that I do have a signed contract on the apartment. So within a few months the sale should close, and I'll be through with Manhattan expenses forever! Woo hoo!

I'm sure you are glad to finalize the condo sale and to be able to reunite your things and your furniture. You must have felt like you were on a perpetual vacation in NJ without your belongings organized neatly around you. Now if only your job search will go as well!

I remember before I got married I still had an apartment but spent most of the time at Mike's house. I think that the relief of having all my stuff in ONE place was one of the reasons I was so excited to get married :)

So congrats on the contract!
