So exhausted today...
My parents got Quinn's room cleaned out today--dressers and closets emptied, etc., so we have some room there.  I pretty much failed at my goal of cleaning out our room.  What I did instead:  fell asleep for several hours.  My main problem is a surfeit of completely uncategorized papers ranging from long-term files to immediate bills--including the stupid parking ticket from DC that needs to be appealed by NLT 8 Jun.  I need to move swiftly and decisively to ge through all this, and yet amid such noise and haste not discard the desiderata

Posting that link, and re-reading it, I realized that while many of you know me as "Happy" or "Happy Pete,"  it's less certain how many of you knew the origins of my traditional benediction of parting:  "Be happy!"  By the way, the copyright date on the web page is incorrect--the poem was actually written by Max Ehrmann in 1927. [c.f. http://alt-usage-english.org/excerpts/fxgoplac.html, et al. ]

Current Mood: exhausted

I feel your pain

(Link)
The movers took nine hours to get not even all of our stuff into our summer rental.

I was so tired I wanted to weep last night. (And nearly did.) I unpacked about 10 of the 47 (not exaggerating) boxes that were once my kitchen. Then realized that if I continued, I would begin to hurl much unprovoked abuse at my beloved, so I went to bed.

Thanks so much for your recent kind wishes.

We'll be feeling that unpacking pain in a few months...
