I know I haven't exactly been forthcoming with detals about my move from Fredneck to Bawlmer, including the simple detail that I have moved to Bawlmer. So in concise bullet form I give you details of a sort:

  • In May 2009, [livejournal.com profile] ravynmaniac bought me out of my share of the house had shared in Fredneck since 1993.

  • With the help of a fraternity brother who happens to be realtor in the Bawlmer area, I located a house that met my space needs and location requirements within my desired price range towards the end of June 2009.

  • I took possession of my new digs the weekend before Independence Day, and thus began the long saga of procrastination and other committments that were ingredients in a recipe for panic in late July and onward.

  • The first official move was on my birthday, July 25, 2009. Most of the furniture came over on that day, and is a tale into an of itself.

  • Since then I have been transporting my not insubstantial amount of possessions from Fredneck to Bawlmer, one Prius load at a time. Tonight's load arrived at the new digs around 2:30 AM. What? Don't look at me in that tone of voice.

  • Friday [livejournal.com profile] ravynmaniac moves back in to the "ex-house" as my Twitter-mate @CobwebsStir would call it. Hers is a tale of painting, packing and panic.

So where am I in Bawlmer? On S. Potomac Street between Baltimore and Lombard. Highlandtown, hon. Near Canton, but most definitely Highlandtown. About four or five blocks from the BSFS building. About 20 minutes from work (where I am spending way too much time) and 20 minutes from the meditation center (where I am spending way too little time), in one of those "borderline" neighborhoods. If you've lived in Bawlmer, you knoiw what I mean by that,

I haven't had much time to settle in, but observations are popping in my head from time to time, soi you will likly see more posts. Until then, youse have a good one, k hon?

We moved on the same weekend, but you managed to find a place before I did. OTOH, I am completely moved.

I really wanted to move to Baltimore (specifically: Hampden) but Steven was uneasy about living in the city. He wanted us to move to Frederick but I just didn't have the heart to live so far out again. So how do you like your short commute?

It did cross my mind, after Dave moved out, to find out if you wanted to share a house with us but then I realized sharing a house with us is nothing I want to inflict on my friends.

Deja Vue

I think you may be on the same block where Tim and I used to live. We moved from there in 1991 and rented the house to a series of less-than-perfect tenants, then sold it a few years ago as a "handyman special" to a contractor who fixed it up for his daughter's family (luckily before the housing market went down the toilet). You are probably not too far from no. 30.
