Countdown to Cleveland Heights residency: two days.
Count of fast food restaurants I have eaten at in the past two days: 3
Count of calories burned from hauling boxes into the moving trailer in ridiculously sweltering humidity: 8,547.
Count of extra cash earned from craislist/ebay/garage sales/: $700
Count of awesome friends who have helped us pack/load boxes: 10
Count of books packed: way, way too many.
Count of parties throw in the past 5 days: 3, including a Mcdonalds b-day party for Reuben tonight.
Count of how many times I’ve thought “this feels surreal” as I hear the echos in my mostly empty home: innumerable.
Count of the number of fights Dave and I have had in the past two days: 2. One included me yelling at him because he suggested “pancakes” as something Reuben could order from a drive through menu. When I explained this wasn’t possible we both had a meltdown.
Count of how many times I’ve been thankful we’re staying in my parents air-conditioned home this week while we move: every second of blessed sleep that I enjoy not tossing and turning because I’m too hot.
