finality, in the form of listiness

Previous Entry Share Next Entry
Today is the last day of my move.

I'm going to make my to do list here because:

a) it gives me a legitimate excuse to sit here periodically
b) if I don't, I have to write my final to-do list in OMGHUGESTINKYMARKER! because I packed all the pens last night in a bin that has since been relocated, and then opted this morning to only bring the wallet, not my big purse
c) I get to use the strikethrough tag!
d) this way I can save my list for posterity, for so long as the (metaphorical) halls of LJ stand

My original appointment for the final walkthrough was for 1:00, but I have confirmed that I can go as late as 6:00 if need be for the walkthrough, and later still for final cleanup. I shall shoot for the moon, however, and see if I can actually be done with everything inside my original deadline!

I think I have a list of pretty much every single thing I'm hoping to do in the next two and a half hours.
