5 Days To Go

It's coming down to the wire on this move thing, so I spent much of the weekend packing. I discovered a few things.

First, I hate packing. This is not a surprise.

Second, I underestimated by a long shot how many small boxes I needed. The vast majority of the stuff I need to pack consists of books, and anything other than the smallest boxes I bought end up being way too heavy if you fill them with books. I think I've gotten all the books done now, but it sure would have been nice to have some small boxes for other things...

Anyway, I've finished most of the easy parts (books, DVDs, CDs), the rest of the week will consist of the less fun parts (computers, clothing, excavation of the massive pile of crap that's sitting in my bedroom).

5 days to go!


  1. What's your time worth to you? What's your hourly rate? I can guarantee that it is more than what you would pay to professional movers/packers. And even better: they are much more productive at packing than you are. I bet they could pack your place in half of the time that you would take, so you end up paying for fewer hours.
    When you realize this simple fact, then you'll never pack your stuff again. Ever.

  2. uh-oh. are you sure you're going to get it done in time? driving through wyoming in the wee hours of the night is fine, but helping pack, that's more than i bargained for! ;)
