Man, I had so much stuff I felt the junk truck wouldn’t be able to hold everything I needed to get rid of.  Always trust your gut feelings — I decided to take a bunch of boxes and items to the local Goodwill and Salvation Army.  Goodwill wouldn’t take baby gates, so those went down the street.  Funny, someone else was thinking just like me.  I wondered whether Salvation Army would take baby gates, and saw three in the bins.  So I added four.  Oh yeah, the snow shovel in the car?  There was a snow shovel in the bins, so I brought mine in.

The junk truck came by at about 11am, just ahead of the deluge.  The crew tried racing the weather so the load wouldn’t get wet — they try donating the stuff they get.  When the rain started, the crew leader said they probably wouldn’t be able to get anyone to accept anything because it was wet.  Damned mother nature!  Well, my gut feeling turned out to be right.  The truck was packed tight.  If I’d kept the stuff I’d unloaded earlier in the morning, everything wouldn’t have fit.

After the truck left, I worked on another load of stuff for Goodwill — yes, I still had stuff!  Went to Goodwill, then I returned home to start moving boxes and items around as to where they’ll be going in the morning. Some for storage that pile is getting big.  I’m seriously concerned I won’t have enough room in the unit for everything.  I’ve got some stuff for the local cat shelter.  And yes, even more for Goodwill.

Rented another U-Haul van.

Decided to take a break, and went to the local drive-in for one last show.  Saw the new Pirates of the Caribbean movie.  Didn’t stick around to see Guardians of the Galaxy for the third time though.

After coming home, I inflated the air mattress I’d set aside and arranged the boxes I’m taking to Arizona around the bedroom to use as furniture.



Busy day.  Took the old car to Walmart for an oil change and to have the tires checked and rotated.  Then I took it to a real car wash to get it cleaned up real nice for giving away.  After bringing the old car home, I took the new car in for it’s first maintenance visit.  Then I got a storage unit to hold the things I’ll have to take to Arizona later.  I ended the day by going to the local drive-in to see The Guardians of the Galaxy 2.

17 days before moving.


I can’t believe it’s almost the end of February!  Looking forward to this weekend, when Logan hits the theaters.  The X-Men has been one of my favorite movie franchises since it started.  I was hoping the drive-in’s season would start with this movie, because it had shown the last standalone Wolverine movies at the start.  The drive-in doesn’t open for another month yet, so I don’t think they’d start their season with a movie that’s already been out a month.  (Minor disappointment — until today, I thought the drive-in opened in two weeks.)  If they do start the season with Logan, you can bet I’ll be there.

Nothing happened today worth writing about.  I got up.  I worked.  I went home.  Eating leftovers for dinner.

Oh! Oh! — I found out the drive-in theater’s season opens in three weeks!  Yay!
