Hiatus

It's been quite a week here at CJSD International. The initial offer for our house blossomed from crappy to acceptable, we passed inspection, and the buyers want to take possession quickly. That means our rustic adventures in the frozen fingers of Michigan will be coming to and end almost exactly three years after they began.

With all the packing and preparation, not to mention trying to keep up with work, the blog will have to go into sleep mode for a few weeks. Or sleepier mode, as the case may be. When it awakes, it will be surrounded by skyscrapers and Blackhawks fans and Chipotle outlets.

We started boxing things up last night, starting with our books. I couldn't help but think of just how much stuff we'd need to box up, which of course, made me think of this:



Happy Friday

Speaking of which, if you need a place to rest for a couple of hours, get some food, etc, before the final push to 312-land, we are happy to host....

Well good luck!

P.S. I, for one, am happy to learn that you're not turning into a hacktastic Washington Post editorial page editor.

Sometimes, I try to have less stuff. But every single thing seems to have some value. But you know what? Just in case I have to move, I think I'll get rid of this pencil on my desk. I'm not using it, and I never will.

....

So much better now.

Enjoy your move! Read you when you get back!

Chicago is waiting for you!
They even threw you a parade last week!
With ticker tape and all!
Since you couldn't make it, they let the Blackhawks borrow it.
Best of luck on a calm happy move!

Happy Packing!

a calm happy move!



these words make no sense in this combination.

I recommend accepting the chaos. At least you will be less stressed.

Awesome video. Good luck on the move...Although, I'd be happier if you were moving back to Iowa City.

So now 3B are official on the furthest edge of culture and society, at least while Chuckles is out of his house.

I'm hoping to get back in the blogging/blog reading grooves this week. It's been a rough couple of weeks but things are finally settling down.
