I thought I was pretty organized with our move, but wasn’t prepared for how long it would take to actually throw or give away the last remaining things in the cupboards. Pretty amusing to see that our rubbish became treasure in the right hands. We were in town for the absolutely last bits and pieces which included paying our utilities and telephone bills, closing our bank account etc. We stayed for lunch, getting hamburgers from Mike’s Munchies and eating in the shade at the courtroom steps. It occurs to me that sitting on ancient cannons over lunch will soon be a thing of the past! Spent most of the afternoon sorting, packing suitcases, and cleaning the house, and then went back to town where we had invited ourselves for ‘the last supper’ at Pam and Geoff’s place. Seemed a good idea to spend our last evening with them. Also I didn’t have any food left in the house and no plates to eat off of.
