Here comes the rain again

We were scheduled to play a scrimmage game yesterday after work, but we didn’t have enough players. I supposed everyone thought it was going to rain, but it didn’t actually rain until close to 9 PM last night. But when it rained, it poured.

I headed home around 4:30, and it wasn’t until I was ensconced on the train that I realized that I’d left my book at work. This is only the second time in 14 years that I can recall doing that and it’s incredibly frustrating. I wouldn’t have been able to get a lot of reading done last night, but I would have gotten some reading done.

I spent most of the evening collecting bulk trash for pickup tomorrow. When I finished, there was a ton of it out there. I took apart my old bed, which we are getting rid of, and slept on just the mattress last night. I got rid of an old dresser, and a ton of other stuff. The stuff got rained on but even so, I noticed some of it gone (like the dresser) when I left for work this morning, so it has found a happy home in someplace other than a garbage dump.

I feel like I still have a lot to do tonight, but it’s a lot of little stuff. We pick up the keys to the new place tomorrow after work and will probably go in, do a walk through, and bring a few things over.

AJ called last night. They are ready and willing to help with the move on Saturday. Since he11o_sunshine, stubiebrother, and bigblu4 will be here to help if we need it, and since we have movers doing the bulk of the work, I told him that they could come by Saturday afternoon to see the new place.

Big day for vickyandnorm today. Can’t wait to hear the good news from them.
