It is said that Ann Arbor is an island surrounded by a sea of reality.
Our new place will still be served by Ann Arbor Schools. The township just a half mile north of us is very sparsely populated. We went to the only 'full service ' restaurant in its 36 sq miles. It was surprisingly good, though pricey. It serves 'locally sourced' foods including yak meat. The yak farm I bike by isn't far away.
I am taking a break from non-stop activity. starting at dawn. The movers come first thing tomorrow and everything that they are moving has to be empty. Plus all the boxes need to be packed and sealed. I wish we made this a bit later in the month. Both of our cars are loaded to the brim. Josh will come shortly to help unload. We hired Naomi for snow removal. She worked until she got blisters. One fly in the ointment is that we can't move our patio table because I can't remove the umbrella from the table. Everything needs to be free of snow or it wouldn't be loaded on the truck.
We aren't allowed to keep our land line number. And almost all of our calls are from salespeople so now we are using only cell.
As hectic as today was, tomorrow will be worse. And then maybe I can take a breather.
