Glimpses of Normality

I’m starting to see glimmers of what my normal life here will be. I was able to work out after work on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday, which was very nice. On Monday and Thursday I went to the fancy rec center. On Wednesday I ran to the rec center via an indirect one-mile route, did some speed drills on the quarter-mile indoor track, and then went home. Very nice.

Dan spent two days with one of his techie friends who lives a couple blocks over, getting our internet stabilized, so hopefully my connectivity problems are over. And today I was able to combine dropping off a completed project to the CIO with my walk home.

I went to our storage unit twice this week and there was a lot more in there than I had realized. I think we’re set for this weekend to be it, though. We’ve got a pickup we can borrow, so we should be able to pull up to the storage unit, load up and go. We need to do a run of stuff to the Salvation Army, one final wipe-down on the old place, and I think that will be it. If possible, I’d like to do a walk-through and turn in the keys on Sunday, but we’ll see how things go. Bottom line, I’m ready to be done with the place so I can get on with my life.

By this time next week, I’ll have a three-day weekend ahead of me and no more ties to the old apartment.

It’s about time!

When you're done with the apartment, can I rent you? Your bedroom looks more put together than mine does -- and I've been in my house 11+ years now.

Glad you're liking the rec center! I can't bike much at the moment; the main road I use to get through my usual routes has been torn up and safe biking isn't happening on it right now. Not even with the mountain bike. :(

Time to conquer my hill issues.
