Boxing Week

I'm dismantling my life here.

It'll be, um, mantled in another place not too far from here by week's end. Between now and then, life will be downsized even more than I've already downsized it, which I've had a chance to do since I've had months of thinking I'll move soon, so make sure I don't have to move too much all at once!

The people whose house I'm moving into have not yet had even hours' experience with me. This will change, and be a reasonably easy change, I hope.

I can be a good roommate. Soon I'll start to prove that.
