Moving
I did 3 carloads this weekend, doing another one next weekend, and possibly another one or two the following week. Then the following weekend, the weekend of the 22nd, I'm planning to rent a van/truck and move all the furniture stuff and whatever remains of boxes and whatnot. I think I'm going to try to get the moving all done on Saturday, leaving me Sunday to clean the old place and pack for my trip on Monday. Is anyone free to help me move on Saturday? I haven't figured out timing, yet, so let me know what times are best and what times don't work.
A related request: can anyone with handyperson skills help me tighten the railing on my back porch? The new people want the railing tightened, and I have neither the tools nor the knowhow to do it myself. It's all wood, and I assume a hole would have to be drilled and a long wood screw put in. This could be accomplished any time next week or on the moving weekend.
Guh. Trying to move and get work done around the two conferences I'm going to this month is proving to be quite a challenge. I'll be really glad when this month is over.

So, I think I am reading it right that you are doing the heavy lourde part on Saturday, the 22nd. I can help then. Anytime after noon is good. Let me know if it works out according to this plan.

Er, he told me he reserved it for *you*. So don't go renting anything until you smack him upside the head and get something clear from him.

I misinterpreted this as "has already been reserved." My flakiness, not his.

So, cool. Um, yeah, I'm not sure I can get all the furniture in one vanload, but we'll see. And I guess the number of trips will also depend on the number of people who show up with cars. So, I'm thinking probably only 1 vanload, but possibly 2. On Saturday the 22nd. Timing to be worked out.

As you know, I'm not able to help on the 22nd. I'm happy to help with more carloads.

Should I give you the couple of empty boxes I have around?

I should have enough boxes, but I guess a few extra wouldn't hurt.

Not sure I can do much with the moving help, but I'd be happy to take a look at your railing tomorrow. You don't need to be there for that, right? I can go over, bring my tools, make the necessary trip to the Despot, make good the repair. Sound cool?

That would be great! Yeah, I don't need to be there. My nosy neighbor might ask you what you're doing, but that's OK. Let me know if you're successful.
