"I could live in this bathtub." -Margot, 2015-04-26

Whew! Yesterday, while Claire was busy with the board meeting of the community garden, I loaded all our livingrooom furniture, and most of our other furniture, into a UHaul, drove it half a mile, and unloaded it again by myself. This was a ten foot truck, and I can truly say that all my time spent playing Tetris in my youth has paid off. I know you didn't see it, but let me tell you, it was a thing of beauty. Not only was it packed to the brim, it was rock-solid steady to boot. I should have taken pictures.

Of course now my biceps are full of lactic acid and my heels are sore from jumping down out of the back under load, but I can't argue with the results. One more load in the truck this morning to get books and cookpots and I dare say the rest could go over by hand if need be.

Not that we won't still borrow a car, mind. We're not masochists.
