So the plan was this:

  • 1/30 – Sign the lease and move a few things
  • 1/31 – Go back to Brooklyn and pack
  • 2/1 – Do a couple of trips back and forth to new apartment
  • 2/2 – Do a couple more
  • 2/3 – Do even more
  • 2/4 – Do a morning trip from Brooklyn, then pick up rental van, then get the big items
  • 2/5 – Victoria and I grab old couch

There would theoretically be a little more to do, but everything was intended to get moved all this past week, here’s what happened instead:

  • 1/30 – Signed the lease and moved a few things
  • 1/31 – Went back to Brooklyn and packed (blizzard begins)
  • 2/1 – Blizzard, can’t go anywhere so I just pack some stuff
  • 2/2 – Still can’t go anywhere so I pack more
  • 2/3 – Made two trips back and forth (takes a few hours to complete each round of packing car, driving, unpacking, and driving back)
  • 2/4 – Tire explodes on the way to NJ, call AAA, get donut put on, get to NJ, unpack, bang my head against the wall.  Reschedule van rental to Monday, 2/8 – Tuesday, 2/9.  Use mattress plastic wrap as shower curtain.
  • 2/5 – Spend six hours at a car repair shop since I didn’t have an appointment, spend over $1,000 fixing the car.
  • 2/6 – Build some furniture
  • 2/7 – MORE SNOW.  The rental place is closed but I’m going to reschedule the van rental again.  Built more furniture.

This… has gone not to plan.

Initially I said the next comic would be up today, but fate seems to have pistol whipped me in the face sooooooooo…

…hopefully I can get a comic up by like Friday.
