Another busy weekend, as has been the norm recently. I took Friday off of work so that I could pick up Enzo from the vet that afternoon, and that evening I went up to Berkeley for Sophia and Forrest’s wedding. Sophia was really nice and said that I could take pictures at the wedding (i.e. move around during the ceremony and such), but I was a little self-conscious of the loud clack my heels made on the brick, so I didn’t actually end up moving around much. I think I got a few pretty good shots, though I haven’t actually had time to load them onto my computer to see. The ceremony and reception were at the Brazil Building at Tilden Park, and it was a lot of fun.
Saturday was X-Treme Packing, where Amanda and I attempted to fit all of my worldly possessions into small file boxes purchased from Office Depot. It actually ended up going pretty well, and I was ready to go at 9am on Sunday morning. I used the Delancey Street Movers, and they were just as good as everyone said they were. They were friendly, fast, careful, and got the job done for way under their estimate. Plus, there’s the warm fuzzy Karma bonus of helping out a good cause. Amanda took Enzo to the park while the movers emptied out my Mountain View place, and while we were up in SF unpacking, Amanda started cleaning (with Enzo to help, of course.) We finished in the early afternoon, and I said goodbye to my landlord, and turned in the keys.
We’ve done a bit of unpacking, but mostly the apartment still looks like an Office Depot box bomb exploded in it. The cable guy came yesterday (I yelled at the poor customer service lady for the guy missing his appointment by an hour, so I got a $20 credit), so at least I’m not going to miss So You Think You Can Dance. This is very important, you must realize.
So far, SF living is great. We’re all adjusting to walking Enzo in a city, and figuring out street sweeping days is always a test of patience, but I’m having lots of fun!
