Arrived safely.

-Took a bunch of photos of landscapes in the hopes one or two would turn out; will post them soon. Also got photos of the raccoons living in the hollow tree in our front yard.

-This isn't our final, end-of-the-world move, this was just a quick trip to drop off a couple boxes of books and the husbeast's toy truck and like that. Friday we head back to Charleston for a few more weeks (already dreading that). The final, apocalyptic move will be at the end of July.

-Sekhmet is back in Charleston with auto-food and auto-water. She doesn't travel well at all. Plus she's a bitch to everyone but me.

-Got some knitting done on Cameo in the truck yesterday; not a lot, but enough to MAYBE be able to try it on while I'm here.

-I am currently outside, on the in-laws' front porch, using their home network to connect to the web while I watch the Goober play in her sand table. (She's making fish cakes.) I love weather where it doesn't hurt to breathe. Haven't been hit by any giant moths, flying cockroaches, or mud-dauber wasps, and no armored centipedes have crawled over my feet. It's quite lovely.

Glad the trip went well. I thought this was the big one.

Now see-- I thought you were being AMAZINGLY calm for the big apocalyptic move. Now I see it was just the calm before the tropical-multiple-armored-stinging-ass-munching-bug hurricane. I understand now.

Good to hear you arrived safely. When the time comes for the big move will the cat be sedated?

Glad your storage trip is going well. I take it it was sort of a dry run for the big one then? Fingers crossed you got all the bugs out then (figuratively and literally!)

I'm with Amy, I thought you were awfully calm for someone who was moving an entire household. Enjoy your few days of breathing!

Except for the moving part, I can see that you are eager to leave the south. Too bad you can't just "Make it so."

I'm so sorry you have to leave that lovely porch & go back! I hope at least a substantial part of your move is now safely over.
