Checkmate

I’m pleased to say that today is moving day. It was in January of 2005 that we’d moved from the Bay Area to El Dorado Hills. We rented for a few months until we found and bought a home. Yet by October 2005, we were back in the Bay Area again, living in a very small short term housing complex for another 45 days. Then we moved into a rental in November 2005, regrouped, and finally bought the house that we’ll move into today. FIVE moves in just over TWO years. Along the way, 40% of our belongings never got unpacked. Today, when we move, we’ll be setting down some serious roots, and we’re going to unpack everything! I expect that we’ll be thinning out a good deal of stuff over the next few months, giving away toys and kids clothes, and probably having a garage sale or two as well. But that’s all fine by me. Because as far as I’m concerned this is my final move. This board has been played the distance. This is Checkmate. Game over, man.
