A Moving Day in the Life of an Editor

When does being a bookish person and having a kickass library have a drawback? When you’re moving to a fourth floor walk-up. Sigh. Luckily, I also have kickass friends.

My move in numbers:

1: splinter

2: times I bumped my head in the same place

3: pizzas eaten post-moving

10: friends helping move all those books

16: boxes of books

Countless: bruises

  1. Hee. Yeah, I've lived on 3rd and 4th floor walkups and every time I ask for help moving the ones who helped last time kind of get a deer-in-the-headlights look. This time, though, I live in a first floor, handicapped-accessible apartment. Not so great for the fishbowl effect but so easy to use those handcarts to get several boxes of books at once directly from the truck to the office. I think we were done unloading in an hour.

    I don't know if we figured out yet that each other blogged, but I've had you bookmarked for a while and came back today wondering what I'd bookmarked. So hi! And come on over today (virtually) and see my fabulous manuscript shelves. I'm so excited. :)
