Two English majors shouldn't marry and enable each other. I have taken two full bags of books and DVDs to the used bookstore (and gotten a grand total of $34 for the lot), there's an entire tub of further culls to haul out there sometime in the next couple of weeks, and I've packed twelve boxes/tubs full of books.

And I'd estimate just over half the books are packed. *collapses and weeps*

On the plus side, we've got utilities, water, and cable already lined up for the new place, Yeats is going to set up garbage and recycling today, and our real-estate person and our mortgage lender both say they see absolutely no obstacles to closing day (Friday!). So my panic dreams about everything falling through at the last minute and Yeats and I having to scramble for a new place to live can just shut up.

The theoretical scrambling is due to the fact that our rental office, after having been nice and cooperative and friendly for the last nine years, decided to respond super-huffily to Yeats' 30-day notice by claiming that they needed 60 days' notice and also would require rent for July, since our lease expires on July 31st. Yeats calmly emailed them a copy of our current lease and a copy of the lease renewal notice they sent us in April, where it clearly states that 30 days' notice is needed, and also that our current lease expires on June 30th. They responded with "oh you're right sorry..." and have been silent since.

Nevertheless, we persist. We will have a house, and it will be awesome, and Yeats can boogie around a lovely full-size kitchen while he cooks, and I can line the finished basement with bookshelves and grow an herb garden in the backyard.
