I am delighted...

...by my discovery and ever-growing belief in my own physical competence.

Today I spent much of my day at the top of a not-particularly-sturdy ladder running Romex electrical cable, creating and stringing junction boxes, stripping wires, and attaching electrical outlets. This morning I did not know how to do any of these things. Now I'm a competent, though relatively inexperienced, DIY home electrician.

The move continues.

Acquired today:

* chest freezer (and associated food goods)
* plantstand and remaining plants
* waist height bookcase
* second folding bookcase

I have 5-8 hours worth of packing remaining. The move will be relatively painless, the only remaining furniture is the (light, segmentable) desk, bookcases, the TV and TV table, and, admittedly, the Sleeper Sofa of Doom. All the rest if boxes.

Those of you in Class Phoenix who wish to help: any of you who come to help from 10 a.m. to 1 or 2 p.m. and then head off for class will be provided a homemade dinner at some other point in time. If there are enough of you, you will be given your own private party at my place. (:

Remember, all: my move is this Sunday, October 23, 10 a.m. until we're done. If you either know you will be there, or think you might, please let me know.
