Yes, it's over -- all my worldly possessions are out of the old apartment (where I haven't lived in over a year) and the pressure is off.

The one bright spot in this month of misery was the movers I hired at the last minute: Paul and Greg, both in their late forties, doing this kind of work for extra money. They both had the same silly sense of humor I do, and all the same points of cultural reference, so we had a wonderful conversation while we were working. We laughed the whole time!

We worked together for about ten hours over a two-day period, and when it was all done, we actually hugged goodbye. And as they left, I'm pleased to say that Greg paid me the very highest of Boomer-Generation compliments:

"Carol," he said, "you are a consistently groovy chick."

We already knew that. Congrats on this milestone. When I moved in with my hubby-to-be, I took forever to clean out my townhome so we could sell it. I remember the relief of having that all completed.

Moving sucks! I had to move 6 times in a 3-year time span (loooong story) and if I never have to do it again, it will be too soon for me!

You are groovy, Carol - but we already knew that!

~KK~

Carol, having moved twice in the last three years, I know EXACTLY how you feel! I haven't been in the lounge enough to know the back story to this - but I'm glad it's over and done with!

Moving is rotten, I've lived here for over 7 years now and am really not looking forward to the day I finally move, moving out of my parent's house when I just had 1 room was bad enough!

Carol, you are the GROOVIEST chick!

Slow down, you move too fast.
You got to make the morning last.
Just kicking down the cobble stones.
Looking for fun and feelin' groovy.
Hello lamppost,
What cha knowing?
I've come to watch your flowers growing.
Ain't cha got no rhymes for me?
Doot-in' doo-doo,
Feelin' groovy.

Got no deeds to do,
No promises to keep.
I'm dappled and drowsy and ready to sleep.
Let the morning time drop all its petals on me.
Life, I love you,
All is groovy.

Well done on finally moving out! It must feel so good to get organized (I wouldn't know from personal experience, but I imagine it would).
How come you could keep your stuff there so long? Didn't the new tenants mind?
