Last weekend, Jennifer and I began out move from Pacheco to Emeryville.
We had begun the process the week before I was laid off, and Jennifer put in our 30-day notice just a couple hours before I was laid off.
We had money set aside for moving expenses, so that was good. We hired movers, and halfway through the day, Jennifer fired them because they were just dragging. Jennifer's phrase of the day was "slower than molasses in winter."
For those that remember from ten years ago, we had water leakage in the place in Pacheco. It got fixed and then a second leak occurs. We had thought that was all fixed. We had three bookshelves on the wall, and when they were moved we discovered that there had been more leakage. Fortunately the bookcases are only stained on their backs, so that's good.
My favorite phrase is: we are well shut of that place.
Now we get to learn all about our new neighborhood, and sign up with the Oakland Public Library.
