moving - when you don't know what to do... — LiveJournal
do the next thing
I hate moving. I think I've always hated moving. And the fact that I have to get this organized more or less all by myself makes it worse. But once it's done, it's done, and I'll be home, back in a house, with off street parking and a landlord who thinks I'm swell. He speaks excellent English, too, which is a huge plus -- neither the landlords I originally rented this place from nor the new owner speak English. And I found out tonight that the neighbors downstairs are moving out next month, and the ones on the first floor moved out in October. What a shame...

On the plus side, I now have concrete proof that Wolfie loves me: he cleaned out the computer room to make space for my setup. I'm going to put my kitchen table up there. There will be room for my monitor, keyboard, speakers and laser printer, and I can put my tower on the floor. We're going to hire someone to come in and remove the construction debris in the middle room of the house and the garage -- we'll have a lot more room that way. And we need to get an electrician in to run 10 more amps into the house and do some wiring upstairs, so we don't blow the place up when we network the puters and get some serious bandwidth going.

The big stuff goes on Tuesday. After then, I won't be living here. Guess I ought to go and get address change forms, and change the address on my back account and stuff. What a pain. In the long run, though, it's all going to be totally worth it. I hope I'm going to be able to do the things I want to do in the coming year, but even if I can't, I think it's going to be a great year.

It's nice to look at the new year with hope.
