All the books are packed — finally — fifty-five 12x12x12″ boxes. Maybe too many books.
At this point, nearly everything is packed except the things that are fragile and difficult to pack: framed pictures, dishes, tchotchkes. But we don’t have much of any of those things, so it should go quickly.
Right now, the plan is to get everything packed except what’s going in the car with me, so I can have a week to go into Chicago, and work on a couple of writing projects. The sooner I get everything packed, the sooner I get to start that free time — so back to packing!
