Call for help.

EDIT: If you need directions, call my cell phone: 6 one 2 2 zero one 2 four nine 7.

1.) I have a trailer full of concrete blocks. I need to have a trailer that is no longer full of concrete blocks, and said concrete blocks in the front yard of the house where I can actually use them.

Thanks to eldogo and stark0228, we is done! Mucho thanks guys!

2.) I have a room full of *stuff* (mostly in plastic bins) that needs to go on to said trailer so that I can make it go away this Saturday.

Barring catastrophe, I'll be trying to unload the trailer tonight after about 6:00. Any help is appreciated. I do have a four-wheel cart and a couple of wheelbarrows so it's not horrendously bad, it's more tedious than anything. Well, one concrete block weighs 36 lbs., so if that's an issue...

The moving of the Barb-stuff is easier and the lesser of evils, but it does involve going into a couple of the scarier parts of the house, namely the basement and the Studio. I'm hoping to wait until Thursday, but if help is available earlier, I can make do.

Also, last call for a trip up to the northland. I have a hotel room at the Comfort Inn in Bemidji for this saturday (Aug 6th). There is a hot tub. And there are two beds in the room, which is unfortunately a smoking room, as I'm bringing my pooch along and they only allow pets in smoking rooms. Plan is to drive up Saturday late morning/early afternoon, then unload either Saturday night or Sunday morning, and drive back home on Sunday.
Aside from just companionship on the drive, some help unloading the trailer into the storage locker would be appreciated. It's not a huge amount of stuff, and there will be at least one other person helping. I'll even buy dinner at Applebee's.

  1. I no longer need to punish, deceive or compromise myself. Unless, of course, I want to stay employed.

  2. A good scapegoat is nearly as welcome as a solution to the problem.

  3. As I let go of my feelings of guilt, I can get in touch with my Inner Sociopath.

  4. I have the power to channel my imagination into ever-soaring levels of suspicion and paranoia.

  5. Today, I will gladly share my experience and advice, for there are no sweeter words than "I told you so."

  6. I need not suffer in silence while I can still moan, whimper and complain.

  7. As I learn the innermost secrets of the people around me, they reward me in many ways to keep me quiet.

  8. I assume full responsibility for my actions, except the ones that are someone else's fault.

  9. I honor my personality flaws, for without them I would have no personality at all.

  10. Joan of Arc heard voices too.

  11. When someone hurts me, forgiveness is cheaper than a lawsuit, but not nearly as gratifying.

  12. The first step is to say nice things about myself. The second, to do nice things for myself. The third, to find someone to buy me nice things.

  13. As I learn to trust the universe, I no longer need to carry a gun.

  14. Just for today, I will not sit in my living room all day watching TV. Instead I will move my TV into the bedroom.

  15. Who can I blame for my own problems? Give me just a minute... I'll find someone.

  16. Why should I waste my time reliving the past when I can spend it worrying about the future?

  17. I will find humor in my everyday life by looking for people I can laugh at.

  18. I am willing to make the mistakes if someone else is willing to learn from them.
