The movers are ostensibly coming at 11am tomorrow. It's going to be hot AF for them to load the van at that time, but on the positive side, they are doing it, not me. Ha.
My house keeps vomiting up items that I'd forgotten I even had. I was thinking this morning about the 40 or so boxes we packed during March before the pandemic and how I have for the most part not even noticed that the items contained therein were not available for me to use. Which makes me wonder why I didn't just get rid of them in the first place. To that end, I suspect more purging will take place when we arrive at our destination.
Dyl is having a final playdate with our neighbor whose family is even better than we are about social distancing. We will miss having them as neighbors a LOT.
We have packed the TV, the Nintendo. I just uploaded a manuscript review. When I finish backing up my computer I will pack it as well.
I still have to change my address 1,000,000 places.
I still have to finish revising the manuscript I'm currently working on.
I still have to prepare for Friday's data meeting.
On one hand I can't wait to get out of here, but on the other, I am sure I will cry tomorrow at some point about leaving. This house has been so good to us, and I am sad to be leaving it. I am sad to be leaving West Philly, even though I definitely could live without the used condoms cropping up on my front sidewalk a few evenings each week and the smell of marijuana wafting in my front window. I had a whole bucket list of things I wanted to do one final time before we left, people we wanted to see, but thanks to this [expletive] pandemic, almost none of that has happened. I've lived in Philadelphia longer than I've lived anywhere, and now I am leaving. It feels very weird.
The rest of the day, basically I just have to keep packing.
Oh! I deleted facebook again. It was destroying my life. As a result I did a bunch more DuoLingo. You know what? I think it's a good trade.
I'm about 25% into The Hate U Give, which... is really [expletive] good. Highly recommend.
