I'm working more...

than I did when I got up at 5:30am and didn't get home till 5:30pm. At least more physical labor, which is infinitely more satisfying. I can see tangible results immediately.
Today I cancelled the paper, trash and CableOne, had TruGreen come and give me a quote to spray the trees (which seem to be suffering from aphids) and maintain the yard while I'm gone and had a carpenter come and replace the storm door on the back porch and tack the porch ceiling back in place. I also went through a ton of paperwork that I had stored in the garage for an eternity, cleaned out the garage and bundled up the large amount of recycling that was caused by my eternal procrastination. Usually it's not this bad...
Tomorrow I will see about getting the car tuned, the radiator flushed and the air conditioner serviced. I don't want any unpleasant surprises during my 2500 mile Grand Trek. I'll also have the mechanic tune up the truck so it will be functioning when I come back in August.
And....tomorrow's a lunch at Brick 29 with my friend, Barb, from long-ago home health days. We haven't really talked in eons and I think when she saw me posting on Facebook about moving she thought I'd lost all sanity. She didn't have time to let it sink in gradually like everyone else, who thought that a long time ago. I reconnected with my boss, Lynda, from those days, too, on FB. She said it sounds like a fairy tale. That's the storyline I'm using...
