Terminix will be out Friday now, overlapping with the cable appointment (good, the more at once the better - less time I have to wait around) to do a general pest treatment and a termite inspection. I described what we found in the shed and the guy said it sure sounds like termites - but we never found any in the home when it was inspected, so I'm hoping they're just in the shed. Probably, they were in the back corner where the roof leaks so the wood is wet, and that corner was buried in junk when we did the inspection.
The MREs I ordered also arrived today, yay ready to eat food! I think they may come in handy while I'm going crazy moving. :-)
On the not-so-cool end of things, my scalp is at that dry, cracked, and scabby stage bad sunburns get in - but it doesn't hurt as bad today.
