We have no...pianos...today.
Yay! My computer is hooked up! I'm currently sitting in the basement between the chest freezer and the furnace. Only the best for us.
The week started off as pure hell. On Saturday, I learned that my very good friend from the first grade was succumbing to the effects of the cancer she's been fighting for the last 7 years. We lost her Monday morning.
I love you Jeannie, and I will miss you terribly.
She had been to the new house a few times over the last several months and saw some of the progress. I'm so sad there will be no new memories here.
But Jeannie had the biggest and quickest smile of anyone I've ever known. And she wouldn't want us to dwell. Goodbye Sweet Friend!
We closed on the sale of our old house Wednesday. In true Phil and Andi fashion, we did the headless chicken dance right up until the last minute to get the rest of our valuables out. And by "valuables," I mean all the leftover crap that you have no idea what to do with.
BUT...Tuesday was an experience. The guys showed up to move the piano. Have you ever seen an 800-pound grand piano moved down a flight of eight stairs?
You're about to.
But first, a quick funny. When I called the place to set up the move, he asked me three different times what kind of door I had at the bottom of the stairs.
And I explained three different times that IT'S A DECK.
THERE IS NO DOOR.
(Additionally, there is no spoon.)
He finally got it.
It really instilled me with boatloads of confidence.
Now I'm going to do a picture dump, because they pretty much tell the story without a whole lot of commentary.
Remember this guy?
Taking off his dangly bits:
Security blanky (blankie??):
Notice the missing leg at the front?
Phil's head peeking over the top...
Rollin' rollin' rollin'....
At this point, I'd pretty much filled my shorts.
In through the garage:
Up on the lift:
The truck swallowed it whole:
I managed to do a little blog visiting today. I'm trying to get caught up. I haven't been able to respond to comments, but I've read and enjoyed them all.
So don't ditch me.
Because I'll find you.
