No packing got done and no garage cleaning was accomplished. We will be holding our current home for a bit after we settle so I think knowing that has made us a little lazy about the moving process.
We went shopping for new furniture instead. This primarily consisted of my wife asking me what I thought of various things and me giving my opinion. At which point she would look at me like I was insane for thinking a given bedroom or dining room set looked good, and would dismiss my opinion out of hand before moving on.
So I resigned myself to simply agreeing to most of what she said she liked. At which point she said something to the effect that "I can see you're not gonna be of much help here."
It is a game we often play. I actually have complete faith in her to pick tasteful, comfortable, and reasonably priced furniture. Knowing I don't have to worry about ending up with stuff that is in poor taste, I don't really care about much of anything except reminding her not to go too far overboard. But she seems to need this little back and fourth process so I indulge her. If for no other reason than I think the process of bouncing ideas back and fourth helps her whittle the selections down in her own mind to a final pick. She likes to believe 'we' are making the choice together but in reality I am just helping her make up her mind, which is fine by me.
The cost of fuel to operate a 6000 pound 400 horsepower half ton that does 0-60 in under 7 seconds is kind of like the price of oil changes for a Porche 911. If you have to ask you probably can't afford it.
