The World of the Living

Every time you pick up a handful of dust, and see not the dust, but a mystery, a marvel, there in your hand. Every time you stop and think, "I'm alive, and being alive is fantastic!" Every time such a thing happens, you're part of the Circus of Dr. Lao.
--Tony Randall in The Seven Faces of Dr. Lao

Well, staying at home and being gentle on the ol' erector spinae seems to have done the trick. I wouldn't say my back is quite at 100% yet, but it doesn't actively hurt at least. Thanks to everybody for their comforting thoughts yesterday. ^.^ I'm going to do my best to take it easy on those particular muscles during the rest of the move, but there's only so much I can do.

So, the moving plans. laurie_robey and I are renting a truck this weekend to haul over boxes and smaller, lighter pieces of furniture. Next weekend, mammallamadevil is coming to help get more stuff moved and we've got Two Guys and Truck arranged to come around and move the OMG huge pieces, such as my desk and the credenza. So tonight, tomorrow, and most of next week is going to be spent packing-and-shuttling, packing-and-shuttling. A large amount of that, in my case at least, is probably going to be sorting through stuff (like my wardrobe) and deciding who lives and who dies what I'm going to keep and what's going to donation. Most of my "stuff" stuff is pretty well sorted on that front already.

Alas, before that can happen, I need to sit through another day of work. Pfui! Guess I better get started.
