If you've been reading this blog for any length of time you'll notice that the past week has brought the lowest level of posting since it's inception. Several things have conspired to make it difficult to post at the level I have in the past. I'm hoping to get back on my regular schedule soon. In the meantime here are a couple of updates:
- Work has been incredibly busy. Some, welcomed, new responibilities have kept me hopping. I'm lucky to have a career that challenges me daily while giving me the opportunity to experience new things. It's never tedious.
- We successfully moved the contents of our apartment on Tuesday of this week and are trying to get our home livable. Mrs. Horn Head has been a machine; unpacking boxes, putting together furniture, hooking up the stereo/TV. She's been Wonder Woman, without the red boots and star spangled bustier. Though I'm hoping to change that.
- Thursday night I emptied the remaining contents of our apartment to coincide with the end of our lease. An arduous task to say the least. After playing in my company's final regular season softball game, yes we made the playoffs (first time in ten years), I worked at the apartment from 9:30pm to 3:30 am Friday morning. We had framed pictures, plants, contents of a food pantry & fridge along with our entire hanging wardrobes that had to come down to the house (only about a half-mile away.)
- I've come up to Boston for the weekend to attend a friend's wedding. I'm writing this from the concourse level of the Hyatt Regency Cambridge. A beautiful hotel with a great view of the Charles River. I haven't had any chow-dah or lob-stah yet, but perhaps at the wedding reception. (I'm allowed to make fun of the dialect. I was born in Hyannis and spent some of my formative years in Little Rhody.)
- Finally, you'll remember the Stinky Meat Project. It has come to it's conclusion. After emptying it early last week we had the movers bring the freezer upstairs, making sure that they would take a chunk out of our brand new floor. They obliged. Upon one glance, Mrs. Horn Head said, "That's trash." The movers took it outside, taking a piece of the door with them. The following day we had a hauler come and take the wrethched appliance from our lives forever. I'm not going to get all misty over that thing. This has taught me a valuable lesson. Deal with frozen food today, for tomorrow you will have a warm stinky unappealing mess.
