My folks have come to visit and help me pack. The house is under contract, the move-out date is set, the movers have been hired. It's time to get stuff in boxes so I can get out of Denton by the deadline.

I've already done quite a lot of packing. Nearly all my books have been boxed up. There are a small number of unpacked books, partly to give me something to read other than the Kindle, and partly because I wasn't able to completely fill another box. It doesn't really feel like a lot, even though I've probably got 50 boxes filled with books. 

We haven't done much today -- the folks have driven seven hours to get here, so they're fatigued from the road. But my mom has done some organizing in the kitchen in preparation for serious packing.
