Okay. I got over excited about a tootjoke. We don’t pick up the truck until tomorrow morning.

But THEN I’ll have 12 hours before turning it in, and etc, etc.

After lifting with my knees for a week, I have managed to injure my wrist instead. :facepalm:

Oh well. I’ve got a truck full of furniture and boxes, it’s only twelve hours before I have to turn in the truck, and I’m wearing a wrist brace.

We got laundry bags To replace our laundry baskets in an effort to keep our cats from sleeping on the laundry. (The dumb one pees on it.)

The smart one has figured it out already.

The cats broke the coffeemaker two days ago. The replacement showed up late yesterday and oh man coffee I have missed you.

Overheard from the toddler’s bedroom: “Dad! Something terrible happened in my body. I pooped!”

Me: We’re moving in 2.5 weeks. I should put in extra effort to write so that I have something to do with my brain during downtime.

Brain: If I’m really lucky and work hard, I can reach Fabled rank in Destiny 2 PvP before the season resets.

I had the pleasure of hanging out in Fairbanks for a few days. It was a delightful fall weekend and I spent most of it out exploring the permafrost. Incredible ecosystem.

We’re officially getting a new house in 1.5 weeks.
