October 19, 2008: Packing

33 Days to Baby Day! (35 Weeks and Two Days Pregnant)

10 Work Days Left for Dominica; House closing scheduled in 2 days.

Today is our first, serious packing day.  The big goal today is to get the bookshelf in the living room completely packed up and out of the way so that we can move on to other items.  There is so much more to pack once you start actually doing it.

Our packing goes quite slowly because I have so much other work, like homework and class discussions, that need to be done that it is really hard to focus on the packing and Dominica, being very, very pregnant, can only pack for a few minutes before being exhausted.

By the end of the day we actually got quite a significant amount of packing done.  All of the bookshelves are empty or nearly so.  All of the big stuff is gone from them.  We have nine boxes completely packed and a tenth that is a good way along.  Dominica also “packed” six garbage bags full of clothes.  Those we are just going to throw into the car and drive up to Peekskill sometime when we are going up there anyway.

Ramona was planning on coming over today but we didn’t manage to make connections today.  So her plan is to come over next weekend and maybe take a ride up to Peekskill to see the new place when we make a run up there.

Other than packing, we watched several episodes of How I Met Your Mother today.  I also got paged out and worked for over three hours so that killed most of the afternoon.
