This past week has been really hectic, but thankfully all that is over. All the hard work has been completed, and today I’m sitting in cafes. Different cafes, because I’ll be catching up with one or two friends here and there, but I think I’ll be coming back to this cafe I’m in right now, as I’m writing this. It has free wifi!
It’s been one of my favourite cafes over the past few years, because it’s a good cafe, and very convenient while I’ve been working at nearby locations.
But anyway, back to the hectic move…
Fanfan (my wife) has been awesome. She’s done most of the packing, while I’ve done all the organising of the move. I know how stressful it’s been for her, but she’s been calm and happy and purposeful all through the stress of it all.
And having her manage all the packing while I’ve sat around on the computer has been really awesome. I can’t do all the packing myself – if it was up to me, I’d organise for the movers to do the packing. An extra cost, but for me and my disability, one that I’d have to pay if it was just me.
But it’s not must me any more. I have a wonderful, loving, supportive wife who completely understands my limitations. And so she does all the work that would probably put me in hospital if I were to do it, while I do all the organising of finding and securing a new house, managing the utility connections, organising the movers, and paying all the bills. I do the ‘big stuff’, as she calls it, while she does the little stuff.
It’s great being part of a ‘team’. We work together according to our individual strengths and weaknesses, and I love it. Her too. 🙂
I’ll just pause here while I head off to another cafe.
Six hours later… I’m over today. But at least the final tenancy inspection is over with. All I need to do now is look forward to an 8 hour drive tomorrow, ending with another tenancy inspection at the new house in Melbourne….
You know what? I’ll be glad when this week is over.
