So

On Saturday we're moving seven blocks south to a more accessible house. The new place is a single-level "Craftsman ranchette" with no basement. With no stairs at all except for a folding ladder thing that goes to the attic. It's pretty adorable overall. The interior was completely redone fairly recently and the kitchen features a wine bar, a large island and I forget what else as I've only been inside once.

Right now we're packing like madmen. We've shed as many things a possible. Books, CDs, clothes, furniture, the piano, pretty much everything, was piteously weighed by intellects vast and cool and unsympathetic (surprisingly, the cats made the cut). We gotta fit into this place somehow.

So if you've got my address please e advised it'll be obsolete as of the 6th of July, Anno Domini 2013. Email if you need the new one; thankfully our phone number remains the same. And if you're not busy on Saturday...

I love it!! Hope you'll be very happy there. By the way, downsizing is the buzz these days. Glad the cats made it.

I had to do that same thing about a dozen years ago, for pretty much the same reasons...

Be sure to let us know if you need help with the "wine bar" part of the house. Also, please email us the new address so we can send the mountains of cash we owe you for the RPAs.

A Craftsman ranchette? You lucky dog!

I think I left one of my socks at your house the last time I was there. It's the stripey one with the polka dots and plaid patch on the toes. Did you pack it? Please say yes.

Waiting for an invitation to the housewarming. My husband makes The World's Best Potato Salad.

You left out the most important piece of information, though: are you still in reasonable proximity to Taqueria Poblano?

Glad the cats made the cut. Were you able to find good homes for the kids?
