Moving the Ken Carr World Headquarters

I think I'm suffering from insanity. I've agreed to move to a house.

Anthony's mom is moving to a condo and offered to rent us her four bedroom, two bath house a few miles west of the apartment in Tucson that we currently occupy. Its a good deal as far as rent -- about a third less than we pay now.

The insanity kicks in because moving is difficult. Moving with Anthony is even more difficult because he's kind of a control freak. There is only one way it has to proceed and if I deviate from that it causes conflict. It doesn't make him a bad person by any means, it's just how it is. I have resisted moving since he and I moved in together in December 2010 because it was difficult then. But, I have caved and am giving it a try.

I know there are benefits. Big yard for Lucky to run around in, tons more space in the house.

There are already oddities -- dishwasher apparently doesn't work, swamp cooling, the closets in the master bedroom are pink.

I'm going to attempt to do it the same way I have every time I've moved: Not taking time off work. Not taking time off has become a personal challenge -- I haven't had to take a sick day or vacation day since 2010. I'm at the point where I'm wondering how long I can go before I have to. Nobody at work has ever noticed or they'd probably make me. We don't have to be out of our current place until end of December so I have plenty of evenings and weekends to get it all done.

We'll be starting the process in a few days. Let the insanity begin.
