Nov. 19th, 2005

We got our keys today, and I spent three hours with the rented steam cleaner and the vacuum cleaner and a wet rag, washing down walls and sucking the cranefly carcasses off the ceilings. We also took measurements and pictures, which will be forthcoming tomorrow, perhaps.

Then we saw Harry Potter. It was eh. And then right after the climax the film broke and the lights went up and the ad slides started. It was funny. They fixed it a few minutes later but we missed a little bit of the film I think. Oh well. And the lights never did go back down until the credits started rolling, and then everybody had to leave in the dark. Heh.

Cory wanted to go to a movie because he had a feeling the neighbors were going to party and he didn't want to be here during it. Well, he was right. The stairwell reeks of pot as usual, and there's a good bass beat going on and lots of kids yelling. Neither of us are talking about it but I'm sure we're both thinking the same thing. Thank goodness we only have to be here for a little while longer. Yes, Philomath is a ways away from places we want to go, like movies and downtown Corvallis and stuff, but at least it's quiet.

Tomorrow will consist of packing. How exciting.

When do you get to move?

We can move anytime, and I'll probably start taking a few boxes over today to get them out of the way. But we'll do the bulk of it next weekend.

Seems the brothers are leading parallel lives. We is in the process of packing also - 'cept our four-legged kids think it's christmas when we bring the boxes in (poor remy-doodle!)
We'll send out new info when we find out where we will be wandering to. Give remers and trout pets and loves!

and congratulations on the move!

Wander to Corvallis! :D

Heh, all three Granholm kids are moving in the same month. That's weird.

Lisa is moving also? Strange - I wonder if Joel knows....

She's in Houston now. If he doesn't know her address I can give it to him.

Do you have a general place in mind for where you're moving?

we are staying in the general area - but we are looking to find ourselves an actual house with a driveway and a backyard. We are having another roomate join us and it is difficult finding an apartment large enough to accomodate 3 adults and 4 cats. I think Joel is considering moving to Denver sometime in the future, but not for a while. And we all know, where he wanders, wander so do I.
