Oh, The Soreness!

It's Day 2 of my Packing Bonanza, and the end is in sight! Last night I made the brief mistake of lying down to relax, and by the time I was called for dinner I had gotten so stiff that getting up out of bed and walking out felt a lot like the pain I experienced when I had those slipped lumbar disks almost two years ago.

Thankfully, I was able to walk it off, and this morning I woke up with mere sore muscles. Sore leg muscles, sore arm muscles, sore butt muscles! But yet I still got up and went back out to the garage to continue packing. I've only got two to three more boxes to go through out in the garage. Most of it is throwaway - old movies I taped onto VHS and things like that. I've started to pack up my books, as well. Why the hell not, right?

This is a completely-relieving venture because I was planning on needing two weeks before the move to go through everything. I had planned to have June 29th be my last real day of work, and use those two weeks between then and July 13th as "vacation time" from work - allowing me to utilize (and be paid for) my leftover vacation time while still having time to pack. But since we're doing so much beforehand, I might be able to work later, putting more income into my pocket. This is very good because who KNOWS what I'll have lined up for work up there. It very-well could be nothing, and that's pretty scary.

Well, I think I'm going to go grab some lunch and then get back to working. I'm really feeling proud of myself right now. I can't believe how fast the pack has been going!
