It was 95 degrees with very high humidity here today. Ideal weather to move, right?

Today was the day to move my files, my books, my two client chairs, and the contents of my desk from the old firm to the new. I had no help other than that my friend Chris stopped by the office today and helped me load some of my boxes into my car. I had court in the morning and had to wear a suit, but I took a change of clothes with me. I changed into some sweat shorts and t-shirt, and got busy.

It took me much of the day to get everything moved over there and unpacked, but I am all moved in. My files are all put away in my new filing cabinet. My desk is unpacked and set up. My office is reasonably well set up.

I easily sweated off five pounds today, and I grossed myself out. I’m so tired tonight that I’m just being a vegetable in front of the TV, not even thinking about working on Civil War stuff. The best thing is that the move–what I’ve been dreading–is finally over.

I have to move my furniture out of the old office (I’m paying movers to do that for me), but I’m ready to hit the ground running tomorrow.

Tomorrow is a new start for me. Wish me luck.

    Best of luck, ol’ buddy. You’ll do just fine, there, and the new firm is lucky to have you.

    As I told you today, I’m in the process of repainting and completely reorganizing the office here. The front office is all finished, and Wednesday I start mine… that’s the biggest part of the job, but I can’t wait to see it finished. It’s sort of like being in a new place too.

    I look forward to visiting you in your new digs. Have the coffee hot.

    Dear General (by the way, how many stars to you have?),

    Again, best wishes as you start your new job.

    Glad you had a great trip. However, your account made me sin by breaking the tenth commandment, “Thou shalt not covet”. Sounds like you had a great time, even if it was unbearably hot (how can we talk about predicting a global warming in the future when the weather man cannot predict the weather three days from today?). It sounds like Ohio is now as warm as Texas!

    I really look forward to seeing the pictures of your trip when you post them. Did you get one Douglas Southall Freeman’s grave?

    Best wishes,

    Good luck in the new firm. It is good to hear you so charged up with the new position.

    Thanks, everyone. I really appreciate the good wishes.

    I survived the first day. That can only be a good thing, right? ๐Ÿ™‚

    Best of luck as you begin this new journey. BTW: I’m bummed as I didn’t realize that you were in Richmond last week. I would have offered free room and board (w/ pool and breakfast) if I knew that you were in the Fredericksburg area. Glad to hear that your tours went well. I’ll be at the MOC this Saturday and want to take as many pics as I can before they build a Wal-Mart or some other God-awful thing over it!

    Thanks, Michael. Much obliged.

    As much as I would have loved to visit, you had a VERY tough act to follow with the Omni Hotel. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Perhaps another time?

    Yeah, you’re probably right Eric… I may have a pool and some extra clean towels, but I’m pretty sure that the Omni didn’t have little kids w/ dirty diapers running around your room. Offer is still there – they grow up fast you know.

    Good luck on the new career! This sounds like an opportunity not to be missed.

    Best wishes!

    Thanks, Scott. I really appreciate it.

    And Michael, some time, I will definitely take you up on the offer. As a Yankee fan, you must be tickled with the larceny that pried Bobby Abreu away from the Phillies for four extremely mediocre minor league prospects. I always really liked Abreu. Now, as a Yankee, I am required to hate his guts. Sad.
