Packing is proceeding apace. Almost all my books are packed, the exceptions being a few that I found under the bed, and other places where books oughtn't have been. I've packed all my clothes... and unfortunately I mean all, so I'm going to have do a bit of unpacking now.

One of the good things about not owning very much stuff is that even with only seven days to prepare, I've still had time to say goodbye. Wednesday I got to spend a couple of hours with selannia, whom some of you old-timers may remember, and with my oldest nephew. (I saw Selannia again this afternoon; she had offered to run me around if I had any errands to do, and I did.) Last night was my last choir rehearsal at my current church; they threw me a little going away party and gifted me with a $150 Target gift card. Tomorrow I'll be having lunch with my oldest nephew's mother, i.e. my brother's first wife, and Sunday morning before I leave I'll be stopping by my old church one last time.

It's sort of odd to realize every time I go somewhere that it may well be the last time I'm ever there. Not that I'm feeling particularly nostalgic about the Dulles Crossing Lowe's or the Sterling DMV, but still.
