Work has been moving into our new offices for the past week. The move began on Saturday, when we moved our big computer system into its new home. Monday we began moving the rest of the stuff. jebra and I have been working 10-12 hour days, trying to get everything out before the end of the month.

Today, while we were having lunch at the new office, my coworker remarked that he doesn't have that much to pack and move.

Guess which office is his:


Room #1


Room #2


Yep, you guessed it. His office is Room #1. (Mine is Room #2. You can click on the photos for a closer look.)

The furniture movers arrive at noon tomorrow. Think he'll be ready? Nope, me neither.

Cheesy poofs? Like cheese balls or cheesies?

Very strange.

I showed his office to our daughter and she said, "At least most of the stuff is in boxes!". Heh heh.

Cheese balls. They're surprisingly yummy.

His stuff's in boxes now, but what a jumbled mess. I expect he'll have a much harder time unpacking than I will. Not to mention I suspect that some of his stuff won't have survived the move whereas everything I brought over arrived in as good a shape as it left.

Ya don't realize how much stuff you've collected over the years until it's time to move it all...

Ain't that the truth. I'm exhausted from the move and now we have to unpack!

What you fail to realize is that he's only taking two things to the new office. The rest stays behind. Therefore: "he doesn't have that much to pack and move."

As it turns out, he uses the arm sweep method of packing. Everything but one small bag's worth of junk was moved to the new building.

I'd be less disgusted if he weren't the "don't touch a thread that you happen to *think* is out of place" one.

I still can't conceive of the "arm sweep" method of packing. It would probably take me 3 days solid (10-12 hour days) to pack that office if I started with enough boxes.
