House is nearly packed up; just about to move

The movers were here this morning, and today they packed up nearly all of our house. They will finish tomorrow, while also packing the truck. It's been a crazy day. The gardiners and window washers were here this morning, we were trying to scurry around to finish up things for the movers, and then keep the kids entertained as well.

This afternoon was good though. A real estate agent came by, said she heard we were selling our house (from our neighbor, who just sold theirs, which is the same model as ours), and that she has two prospective buyers (we haven't even put the house on the MLS yet). She brought the family by later this afternoon and our agent showed them around while we did some errands. The people loved it, and we're hoping they'll be putting in a bid by the end of the week. Whew! That'd be awesome, hopefully it works out.

I am now sitting in the home office, which is one of the few things they have left to pack up. I'm doing a bit of work, then finishing readying the office for packing, then off to sleep in the hotel. We drive to Oregon on Saturday.

My Mac Menu bar is getting too full

I have switched to using You Control: Desktops for my Mac virtual desktop manager. I was using Virtue Desktops before, but it's been buggy, and seems to not remember, or often pay attention to my settings for what apps go on which desktops and so on. You Control was something I looked at when they were in pre-release, and it wasn't very good at the time. But since then they've come a long way!

I have always liked having the pager control in the menu bar, and they have this now. But, between that and various other things, my darn menu bar is crazy full, and overcrowded when I'm just looking at my 15" MacBook Pro screen (this screenshot was done on a 20" Dell monitor, and my regular office monitor is a 24" Dell wide aspect ratio, so that one rarely gets crowded). The image above, while shrunk, is 719 pixels wide.
