Getting Ready

It's not so bad that it's taking longer to move, because it's giving us a chance to get more organized. Moving is expensive. Moving our stuff cross-country will cost thousands. I've been comparing moving services. Professional van lines charge by weight, so the more heft the more it costs. Even though we have spent the last 3 years getting rid of stuff around the house, there's always more. Tonight Alfonze is shopping around for memory sticks. It's a good idea for lessening the heft of our data storage. I have a bureau drawer full of CD's and zip disks. What am I going to do with all these zip disks? They cost hundreds to accumulate and now they are worthless. I'm thinking about getting rid of the bureau, too.

Your feet are going to be on the ground
Your head is there to move you around
If wishes were trees
the trees would be falling
Listen to reason
Season is calling
