I have only sporadic Internet/email access. Please forgive me if I don't respond right away. Updates will be scarce until I find out what kind (and how much $$$) Internet access is going to be at the new place.
Moving companies were outrageously $$$, so Mom and I have packed everything ourselves and will be loading it into a U-Haul on Monday, September 20 and then taking it out of the U-Haul on Tuesday and loading it into a 20' cargo container. The container sails on Wednesday and arrives in Hilo on Friday, but I won't have access until Monday.
Don't be on the Aloha Airlines flight that leaves Honolulu at 8:10 a.m. on Monday, September 27 -- Mom, Noreen, and I will each have one carry-on of one cat. Gotta remember to talk to the vet's about tranqs....
On Monday the 27th and Tuesday and 'til noon on Wednesday, Mom and I will get to take everything out of the cargo container and load it back into a U-Haul, truck it :) to my new apartment (description later -- it's way cool) and heave it up the stairs and into place.
Looks like the final box count for the books is 46.
Two of the things I hate most are moving and looking for a new job (no news yet) -- and at the moment I'm doing both at the same time!
Gotta run, but I'm still alive and doing okay...
