slept:3.5 weight:174lbs

I am moved out now. Slept in the new house for the first time last night. Drove back to the apartment this morning to drop off the keys.

Now comes the second part. Moving things from the garage to the house and the winnowing of the stuff to a manageable level. Would be nice to reduce it by about half. Lots of things were packed 16 years ago and have gone untouched the entire time I lived in the apartment. Probable would not miss them.

Square dancing (rounds) 30:00 [1]

At Rounds by George. 7:30-9:30 pm.

Event: QOC Jug Bay

other (moving) 1:00:00 [1]
slept:4.0 weight:174lbs

Another full day of moving. The last of the stuff. Also a lot of trips to the dumpster to get of things that will not be making the move. Io arrived at the new house and brought a car load of stuff that there is no room for. We went back to the apartment to do the vacuuming, carpets and cleaning. When she said she would help with the moving, I am sure this is not what she had in mind.


Hated missing the Beer Chase today. Seemed like perfect weather for it. Because of the move and my lack of planning, I had to miss West Point, Team Trials, Meadowood, and now Jug Bay.

other (road) 40:26 [1] 4.0 mi (10:07 / mi)
slept:2.0 weight:175lbs shoes: Avia

Run back from returning the van. Very hot again. This time I was wise enough to run on the shadier side of the street.

Full day of packing and moving. The last load of the van loaded in the morning, plus some trips by car. Finally looking like I have reduced the stuff left to a small enough mass that it does not multiply any more. The end is in sight. Unfortunately; it does not look like it will be soon enough for me to go the QOC Beer Chase. I still have to clean the whole apartment and do the rugs and should not do it at night because of the nose level. Also, Io arrives tomorrow for the summer. She is excited about the new house, but will be less so when she finds out that very little has actually been unpacked. Her bed and desk are among the things that have not been reassembled yet.

run (road) 41:14 [1] 4.0 mi (10:19 / mi)
slept:2.0 weight:176lbs shoes: Saucony Grid Shadow

Even with the major move last week, there is still more stuff left than I can easily transport in my car so I rented a UHaul cargo van. Run from apartment to Vienna via Lee Highway and Gallows road to pick it up. 9:30 in the morning and already oppressively hot. Tired from packing and carrying all week and little sleep last night so very slow.

There is a little park on Gallows road and even though I have lived a few miles away for nearly 16 years, I have never visited it. Today I did as I saw a porta-john in the parking area as I went by and I needed a break. All I saw was a parking lot, paved trail leading to a playground and some woods. Did not explore any more, as I had to get moving to pick up the van.

Took off work for a full day of packing and moving. One of the things I liked about this apartment when I moved here was it had lots of storage space. As I move, I can see this is not always a good thing. Way to much stuff and no matter how much I move, there always seems to be more. Probably should have gotten a small truck instead of the van since I ended up making 3 trips. Milage cost on the trucks was higher though ($8 per round trip). 10ft truck would still have needed two trips and the total would have been about $5. 14ft truck could probably have done in in one trip and saved $6 but I would have had to load everything at once. Would have saved even more in time and gas cost.
Any way I lost track of how many trips from the apartment to the van so will just estimate at 30 per load. Most were not nearly as strenuous as loading the car had been since I carried less stuff and was parked a lot closer.

other (moving) 8:00 [2]

Really packed the car this time. Time is small because I did a lot of it last night so added it into yesterdays entry.
Power still off in the new house this morning. It was off yesterday afternoon when I unloaded and has not come back yet. The tree hanging in the power lines and blocking Lee Chapel Road might have something to do with it.

other (moving) 13:00 [2]

Mostly Iolanthe's bunk bed which I disassembled last night.

other (bailing) 25:00 [1]

Square dancing was canceled tonight because the storm in the afternoon knocked out power where we dance. Worked late instead and then home and bailed the water out of the back porch. Won't miss that when I complete the move.

Was planning on some ups but figure the bailing was a good substitute.

More stuff. Mostly odds and ends, the stereo, and my living room chair.

At Dixie Stars. 8-10pm. Last dance for our rounds cuer who is moving to Richmond. Special party to honor him. Unfortunately there was a big accident on I66 and traffic was backed up. People filtered in between 8 and 9:50. He was in the group that arrived at 9:50.
