As if...

there weren't enough to do already, Yes, I spent the day listening to the Fiscal Stability Commission, and what a swell surprise it was.  More on that later.

As I was saying, as if I didn't have enough to do already.  In advance of the Great Wagon Train West, we're having the wall repainted and the floors resurfaced.  And since having furniture against the walls (and yes, on the floor) makes it hard on the workmen, I've now got to pack the house up.  It's weird packing up without moving, and it's going to be weirder living in a packed-up house for a couple of weeks without unpacking.

In the meantime, I've now also got the Wagon Train to plan.  We'll stick to interstates, since I'm reasonably sure that the truck will make it through all the underpasses, and for speed.  Normally I like to dawdle on these sorts of trips, take the side roads, see the World's Largest Iguana intestine, keep and eye out for Muffler Me, that sort of thing.  But we've only got three, maybe three-and-a-half days, and we need to get over what pass for mountains back east.

Still, this will be the fourth time I've moved a household to/from the east coast from/to Denver, and I like to take different routes.  So we'll probably swing down through Memphis, then cut back up take US-50 across Kansas and eastern Colorado.  Who knows, maybe one night we'll sleep in a wigwam or something.

To boot, Shamash tells me that I don't have much to look forward to in the way of kosher restaurants, either.

In the meantime, I still have pictures from the last time to post, sound files from today to edit, and oh yes, boxes to pack before I sleep.  Plus the County party website to upgrade, and maybe a little blogging about our impending budgetary instability, and maybe about PERA's, ah, interesting financial report.

Where do I go to request another 8 hours a day?
