packing purgatory update post
3:24 am and I'm not done. I just went upstairs to check on the status up there. What the hell? Where did we get all this crap? And why isn't it in boxes? And what's with all the stuff on the desk in the office? Wasn't that all supposed to be packed? Crap. I wish to hell I still had another day to deal with this shit. Except that I probably would have procrastinated an extra day and been in the same position.

Current Mood: stressed stressed

Anything we can do?

We're at your beckon call. Let us know.

Re: Anything we can do?

don't you mean beck and call?

no idea what you can do to help. Maybe call over here in the morning (or try our cell phones if you can't get us on the land line) and see what's going on?

Movers are coming at 9. G-d willing, I'll finish this crap up by then.

Otherwise, your previous offer to maybe help me during the day this week is most welcome. I'm going to need some help getting some things set up.

Re: Anything we can do?

I take it back. you were absolutely right about beckon call. Well, you had to be right once this week. ;)

Re: Anything we can do?

I take it back again. While you may have been also correct, beck and call is also correct.

Re: Anything we can do?

Honestly, I just kept posting and then realizing I was wrong, so I had to keep re-posting.

I didn't find a link with etymology for "Beckon Call". But I found several websites (just via google) that used the phrase that way. Personally, I think that people are just using it incorrectly, but what do I know?

If I were in the area, I'd offer my services. (Former military brat, at your service...)

I hear that bonfires are a good way of getting rid of superfluous items. ;op

Hang in there and remember: It will all be over SOON!
