Mandatory Knitting Break

Today it seems I'll have a knit free day. Not by choice, I must say. I am getting my latest test knit in pieces and got done with the last section yesterday and won't get the next installment of the pattern until tomorrow. I was hoping to piece together the Veste Everest today and finish off the neckline and armholes, but instead I'm doing laundry and fixing blinds.

With only 7 days until the movers are coming to pack us up, there a lots of things to be cleaned out, organised, disposed off and fixed. Today was the day to fix the blinds. I didn't want to wait until the last day, even though I know how "talented" my kids are in breaking them. In nearly every room in the house there was at least one and as many as about 10 blades broken and with 5 big blinds and hearing that the housing office will charge up to 60 dollars a pop to exchange them, it was well worth the effort exchanging the damaged blades and gutting one blind and only putting up one new one, a generous gift from another nice neighbor of mine, that just moved out. I'll hand down my still usable blinds to my other good neighbor for her to fix any of her broken ones. We all gotta stick together here.

Next on the list I'll have to go and reregister out vehicles, which are due next month. First I was going to do this at our next duty station, but doing it here means not having to hassle with it there finding all the necessary papers, which are already on file here. Plus between all the boxes and papers and things that have to be unpacked and put away, I don't want to have to dig for it. I'll just be one of those people, which are not too uncommon in the military, that drive around with out of state license plates for a while. Talk about Georgia on my mind?

Ok. that's enough of a break for now. I'm off to find some more things to organise.

Ah, the countdown has begun! I remember how busy I was last year before we PCSd. I didn't get any better when I found out the house I thought I had wasn't going to be available for 35-40 days. Good times, good time. ;)

Fingers crossed that you guys have a smooth PCS.

Oh je, du Arme. Also umziehen möchte ich jetzt nicht. Ich wünsch dir viel Kraft dabei.

PCS is such a pain. We've been pretty lucky so far. The last time we were in housing we got super lucky to be moving out as privitazation was happening and things were really lenient. I hope you keep your sanity! :-)
