Today they picked up my pickup. The next time I will drive it will be around jughandles. I hope I remember—having North Carolina plates and making an illegal left in Jersey would be embarrassing.

Meanwhile, I will stop labeling all the boxes as Miscellaneous and instead write Sundry Things or A Variety of Items in a variety of fonts. That way I will know that I am organized and have all this under control.

Early next week I’ll be pulling the band-aid off this whole 3½-year scenario and heading to the land of hard rolls, good bagels, and possibilities.
