Time Flies Even When You're Not Having Fun

All right, maybe I had a little fun in the process, but mostly not.

I packed like a mad woman on Friday night from 5:30 until 11:40 when Emily so graciously rescued me. I spent the wee hours of the evening adding to Dan's collection of beer bottles. I returned home, slept for 3 hours and began packing again. This time Mom, bless her heart, helped me all day. I didn't realize how much freaking crap I had accumulated in the past couple of years. It's ridiculous. I'm going to need to buy a gigantic house.

I had plans to meet up with Jill and her family at Gustaf's but alas I was exhausted. I did end up watching movies at Dan's, however. We saw Lost Highway and The Usual Suspects. I'm still confused about Lost Highway. I'm going to have to see it again if I want to have a theory on it.

On 2 hours of sleep, I picked up the U-Haul. Brent, Kelly & I got everything out of the apartment and into the truck in about 3 1/2 hours. When we got to Heather & Mike's, my Dad was there and Shelly arrived shortly thereafter. We moved everything downstairs in about an hour.

Afterwards, Mike treated us to Johnsonville Brats on the grill and a bonfire.

In the end, the beer exists only in our memories and we all probably slept like babies that night. Thank you Brent for helping so much, I wouldn't have been able to do it without you. Kelly was a life-saver this weekend, no way around it. Thank you thank you thank you thank you. Also, thank you Claudia for making me laugh.

Monday, I had the day off from work to clean the apartment. Kelly took a half day and helped me. Unfortunately there was quite a bit left over at the apartment and we ended up having to make 3 more trips. Mom helped immensely by taking the excess to Goodwill. We went back on Tuesday to finish completely. It felt good to have everything done. I wouldn't have been able to do it all without Kelly's help.

I turned in the keys today.

Good-bye Roseville. So long, Flameburger, A&W Drive-in, Stupid Cub, Mobil Free Can of Pop Station, Co Rd B-2 and the house I love on it. But don't miss me, I'll be back.
