Punting yet again

Hmm. I get the feeling that I've sort of dropped off the face of the earth as far as dance practice is concerned this month, but this week is more of the same.

So far, things are going well (knock on wood) on the house front -- it could yet get fouled up, but I have some reason to believe that we will own a new house by the end of Monday, and move on the 6th. All the relevant parties seem to agree that we're closing on that day, and the money is supposedly in transit to me. I'm at that classic "autocrat the day before the event" stage where I'm fidgeting because I've run out of things I can do to make this all go better.

That said, we're now staring at the enormous organizational job that needs to happen before we move: the huge number of decisions to make about what goes where, and what is and isn't being kept. That seems to require a few hours a day from us for the next several weeks, to get it all done. We've made enough progress that it the house is now getting conspicuously emptier (or at least, squarer), but that just drives home how much there is to do yet. So while we're maintaining a minimal social life (to keep from going insane), we're mostly focusing on packing.

Anyway, hugs to everyone at dance practice, and I'll be back as soon as possible. And please keep fingers crossed that everything goes smoothly for the next week. (In which case we may be able to start moving small and non-critical stuff over to the house on Thanksgiving weekend...)
