I’ve been really busy, for obvious reasons, but here’s a quick update as to what’s going on:
- We’re still go for both closings this Thursday. Everything seems to be on track, all the repairs to our new place that we asked for in the Purchase and Sale agreement have been taken care of. In addition, we have a verbal agreement with the seller to move our stuff in on Wednesday (but not ourselves), but we need to get that signed off tomorrow or else our movers will have nowhere to put our stuff on Wednesday morning. =)
- Speaking of movers, I’m packing, packing, packing…
has been working a ton lately, even this Saturday and today! So I’ve been doing most of the packing, which is okay with me, especially since this will hopefully be the last move for many years.. I’ve pretty much got most everything except the bedroom packed up now… Not sure if we will have enough boxes for everything, so there might be a last-minute scramble for boxes tomorrow. Or, I suppose, we will just have to buy a few boxes from the movers and box up the last of the stuff while they are moving what we have boxed up. We’ll see though.. Many thanks to
for helping us out with the boxes. They just moved into THEIR new place, and the timing just so happened that while they were emptying their boxes we were in need of them… They were life (or at least wallet) savers!
- For some reason I’ve started to sort of follow the Red Sox. I’m not sure what happened, I think it’s
‘s fault. Perhaps it was only a matter of time before I caught the local disease.
- Yesterday we took a break from work and packing, and headed out to
‘s folks house for grilling and pool chicanery. It was awesome, we had a great time as always… It was a much needed break from all the adult seriousness the two of us have been dealing with lately…
A generally fun weekend… and I tidyed up the kitchen and started putting the shelves to use. They look even better populated than they did empty, I took some pictures; I try and get them up later today. We also installed some bifold doors in the closet near the bathroom, which was a bit of a chore.. Corinna thought it would be a simple job, perhaps puffed by the cabinet success last weekend, but I knew it couldn’t possibly go smoothly. We had to remove a shelf and shorten it by about two inches because it stuck out beyond the closet and the newly-installed doors were hitting it. Removing this shelf was a nightmare… There are also ~2″ gaps on either side of doors, which we had planned for and have wood to fill, but nothing is true in our apartment, so it is going to require some planing.
Sunday we went to Duxbury to swim in ‘s pool.. It was such a perfect day to spend in the water, we always have a great time out there, many thanks to Sir Adam.
The contractors are apparently going to start our bathroom renovations tomorrow, which is exciting… Even though they were supposed to give us 1.5 weeks notice, yet they called Corinna at 5pm on Friday saying they were starting Tuesday… So we had to have a mad scramble to get the tile and sink… On top of all that, I have to pad hours in the beginning of the week, as I am taking Friday off to go to Jersey for some boating with some of my friends..
This weekend was hectic…. Friday night and I met up with her friend Lisa who was in town for a conference. She invited us to a grill party in Allston. Lots of standing, so my leg was a little barky, but it was a great time.
Saturday we spent most of the day cleaning the apartment, and I worked on fixing the PC, which had a under volt on the power supply’s 3.3v rail. I replaced the supply, but the crashing persisted.. It seems now that the video card is overheating, so I turned down the settings on the game I was playing and it seemed to improve the sitchmo. I guess ultimately it will need to be replaced, but that’d require a PCI Express motherboard, so it will have to wait.
Today we continued cleaning, in preparation for Coco’s parents’ visit this week. After cleaning ended, we went over to ‘s family’s pool for a quick bit of swimming and grilling before racing back to Harvard Square to see Sir, No Sir! with the film club.
