5:48am is too early. I’m just sayin’.

The nice man who was coming to lay the carpet yesterday morning didn’t show up until 5pm. It only took him an hour to do the job, but it pretty well obliterated getting any unpacking done yesterday. We moved 3 bookshelves back into the dining room and put the table together, but otherwise, well, after that we watched Castle and Defiance.

We think the basic idea behind Defiance came from somebody watching House and thinking, “Hey, yeah, ‘everybody lies’, that’s a great premise to do a SF show on!” :)

Here are some awesome fireworks photos. :)

(3 hours later, since apparently i forgot to hit post)

I have unloaded most. Not all. But most. of the books. Into one location, rather than spread out all over the house as the bookcases were in the last house.

We have too goddamned many books. All together like this they are oppressive, and I’m also all sweaty from moving them. Possibly this very moment is the right time to viciously cull them, because I am sore and overheated and never, ever ever ever ever ever want to move them again.

OTOH, I found my copies of THE HIDDEN LAND and THE WHIM OF THE DRAGON, so that was a win. :)

Though I do understand it can look and feel like it from time to time..

Those are my rules too!

Perhaps, to alleviate the bogginess, you should bring what you've got to a used bookstore, and thus create all kinds of lovely space? :)

That is our plan! I was going to hold a book potlatch so that people who like them better than me could just take them, but I have realized that with my (lack of) organizational skills that this is a mere delaying tactic. So away they need to go!

If I could I would take them all!!

The fireworks were lovely
