This past weekend I helped a friend move some things from her home of 25+ years to her newly purchased condo.Things weren’t going well for her. She had the condo almost totally gutted and renovated, and the work was behind schedule – with moving day set for Monday, also the day for closing the sale of her house. She hired a great moving company – they moved me six months ago – for most of the stuff but I helped with some last minute packing, big furniture disassembly, waterbed draining and schlepping houseplants and such like.
I’d called her one evening last week to see how she was doing. Hadn’t heard from her for a few days, when there was a building permit/inspection glitch which they had just resolved.
Me: “Hi, how are things going?”
M: “I’m sorry. Can I help?”
F: “Can you drywall?”
Uh-huh. Trouble indeed. Fortunately my friend is quite emotionally strong and resilient. She’s needing every shred of it. She did get things moved, and the house sale closed, but has yet to spend a night at the condo which is still not quite ready for prime time although it did pass final electrical inspection yesterday.
And over the weekend I moved – actually I copied – my Blogger blog to Typepad.
Then after that I discovered WordPress which has many features that Typepad offers, and more than Blogger, and is FREE. So I’ve been creating yet a third alternate blogoverse over here. As noted below it’s not been without glitches.
