Today's the day!


After one last dip in the Jacuzzi and a somewhat tearful night, we woke up this morning to a phone call from the management office at our new apartment building confirming our interview with the co-op board (6 pm, Feb. 28) and our move-in date (March 1). Hooray! That's finally settled.

That "wide load" at right is Jeff putting in the last item into the truck as we loaded it up this afternoon. I can use that term safely because it is I, not Mary, writing this graph.

That's Mary below putting Sophia into the truck, moments before we pulled out of the driveway for the last time.

So before we lose our Internet connection here at the house (and before we are up to our elbows in boxes), we thought we should post a short entry to bid farewell to San Luis Obispo.

We will miss our family (love you!), our friends (love you, too!), the weather (ahhhh!), the perfect mornings (beautiful for long bike rides), the gentle evenings (wonderful for Jacuzzi-ing), and, of course, our home. But we will take with us years' worth of memories, and we invite everyone--sincerely--to come visit us in the Big Apple. OK, so it's only Joisey. But it's right NEXT to the Big Apple. You can see it from there!

Here is our new address, as of March 1:
380 Mountain Road, #1807
Union City, NJ 07087
Land line phone: 201-751-5497
Cell phone numbers will stay the same, for the time being
Email: jeffballinger@yahoo.com
mary@maryschiller.com or maryjschiller@gmail.com
