Right now the movers are scheduled to pack my stuff on August 8 and load it onto the truck August 9. As such, if all goes well I will be leaving San Francisco on August 9 and arriving in Seattle on August 11.
My current time commitments are as follows:
July 28: some "me time" July 29: my brother's birthday party July 30: work July 31: work in AM, various appointments in PM August 1 (Wednesday): Exploratorium with friends (tentative) August 2 (Thursday): Car maintenance extravaganza (oil change, find out why the tire pressure light won't go out, etc.) August 3 (Friday): Open August 4 (Saturday): Open August 5 (Sunday): Open
- August 6 (Monday): Musee Mechanique during the day; showing condo to a potential buyer in the evening
- August 7 (Tuesday): Open
- August 8 (Wednesday): move starts; dinner with former Amazon coworkers
If you want to be part of the day
s that aren't spoken for, now would be a good time to speak up! Here are some of the things I want to be doing with my remaining downtime in San Francisco: Finally go to the Exploratorium
- Finally go to the Musee Mechanique
- Maybe head out to Ocean Beach?
- Work on comics
- Work on a web-based music collaboration idea that's been rattling around in my head for a while
Of course some of those I can do when I get to Seattle, too, so they're not particularly urgent, although I suspect a lot of my time in Seattle will be spent taking care of real estate and car stuff and whatever.
(Oh, and at some point — ideally before I drive 800 miles through desolate rural areas with 110-degree weather and steep, winding mountain passes — my car needs an oil change. It's amazing how quickly the miles add up when other people rent your car for tourism all the time!)
