Exhaustion, Thy Name Is Nicky's Apartment

But we did get a great deal bagged up, all the dressers emptied, some bags taken to the Sally Ann ... and an unsuccessful attempt to take Nick's apartment sized freezer down his incredibly awkward and dangerous backstairs. We had a refrigerator dolly, and our wonderful "daughter" Sarah (FB's non-crazy ex and the most wonderful girl in the world) was helping Bob and Andy, but Andy, who has a lot of experience moving heavy stuff, immediately said, "no, pull it back up" after they'd barely started. "It'll crush our heads." So we'll have to get a pro to move it down and into our place.

We're absolutely exhausted, but I came home, wrote another news story because tomorrow is going to be absolutely horrendous. Deadline day - and I was reminded on Friday that the doctor's appointment I have downtown tomorrow afternoon (because when you go see a specialist with limited hours, you can't say "No, not Monday, I have deadlines on Monday") also includes a double skin biopsy, since I'm part of a study she's doing. It's really minor outpatient stuff, but it does involve taking chunks of me and stitching me up and filling me full of pain meds, so my plans for covering a meeting thereafter are utterly and completely moot. I let my boss know via email today.

And now, I'll totter off to bed.

Also, I saw The Name of the Doctor last night and was completely impressed. It was the first time I really felt fully connected to Clara, plus Riverrrrrrr!!!!!!!! What is it you young people say? Oh, the feels ... but yes indeed, it moved me. And yes, I have loads of questions, but none that lessened my positive response to the story. More, later, I hope?

Got word from my brother about my mum's latest medical status. I think I'll talk about that later.

Next weekend; Wiscon.

We're all extremely excited, my dear! Oh - and I'll be sending you a couple of messages regarding timing, so be on the lookout for that.

Thanks for the good vibes, by the way ... everything went well, except that I got sick and woozy from the anaesthetic they used on my arm and back to do the biopsies. Better now, though, and not too sore.

I'm rather excited, too!! But that could just be my sugar intake, lol!! *SQUISHES*

Ohhh, glad everything went well. Hate that the an. did that. UGH. I don't handle the knock out drops too well, either. Heal quickly, lovie!

Yikes! Do you have to remove everything? Or maybe you could just leave the fridge there? I think I did it with a bed once... the landlord didn't complain ;)

The freezer is coming to our place, because Nick's mom wants us to have it, but we're going to find some professionals who do really small moves, and it shouldn't be too expensive. The rest may end up in storage, if it doesn't go to the Salvation Army. Either way, we can arrange for pick up. It's just getting rid of the books, the kitchenware (he had great kitchenware because he loved to cook), and also the food, which we're going to give to a local food pantry if it hasn't been opened.
