Heading up to Minneapolis on Monday

Among other activities, I decided just last week that the solution to

1) my storage locker full of shipping boxes (no, they're much too small to use for moving - but they're great for just a couple hardcovers),
2) rather more boxes of books than I thought I had and
3) the sudden influx of boxes from another Chicago fan who's selling their books to Greg...

... is to rent a truck and drive to Minneapolis. So, I'll be arriving late on Monday, unloading the truck, returning it to Elite in minneapolis, then taking Greyhound home on Tuesday. Unless anyone else has other fun suggestions, and I'm aware that I've left almost no time for that to happen.

Other rush projects for this week include shipping out the boxes of stuff I sold on ebay, moving things in the basement to make way for books from upstairs, creating an inventory and grouping series of comics for sale on ebay (gotta get them out of here SOMEhow) and cutting out and sewing a costume for Marty, needed by Friday.

The sudden thunderstorm took out this afternoon's plan of going to Marty's soccer game, allowing me to make these updates, and a little later this evening Mike and I will be taking his Mom out for dinner. Haven't picked where yet.

Call us if you don't have any better offers of dinner plans.

What eventually happened: I picked up the rental truck on Monday morning , loaded Neil's books, drove to the storage facility, loaded the entire thing into the truck (THAT was tiring!), drove home, waited for the rain to die down a bit, unloaded with Mike the shipping boxes that are staying to help us move, then decided I was far too tired to set out for Minneapolis - and it was way too late, too.

Tuesday, left at 6 AM, got in just before 2 PM, unloaded the truck, visited/shopped at DreamHaven, returned the truck, and took the 9 PM Greyhound bus back to Chicago. This got me in just in time to make my 8:30 deadline at the school library.

And, yes, I'm a little tired now. off to sleepies!
