Lots done, but so much to do

This weekend began with some lovely social time with a great friend, and then dinner with my wonderful neighbor. It was an auspicious beginning!

Saturday started off with a trip to a storage facility where I plan to rent a unit. The rest was spent sorting some books and papers from when my daughter was but a wee one. I also looked into scanning my photos so they can be more compactly stored (and taken with me abroad). Then I made lists of the things I plan to store and the things I plan to take with me. I talked with my parents and am excited that they plan to visit over Memorial Day as well as my brother and his family from Michigan at the same time. I will, of course, put them to work! Hooray for family!

Sunday provided an opportunity to do the grocery shopping and then researching some of those plastic vacuum packing bags. Then B & D came over to help me with some of the heavy things in my eaves storage. It was incredibly helpful as we pretty much cleared it out!! Now it’s all sitting in a bedroom and my living room and in need of sorting. It was unbelievably gratifying to get all that stuff out of storage even if I do have a mess in my living room to deal with. My work is cut out for me!

Tomorrow a guy arrives to start repairing the rotten wood on the outside of my house.  If the weather cooperates he should be ready to start painting by Wednesday. Then I’ll get it inspected. Things are proceeding quickly!

    Hey, Pam, don’t spend the big bucks on the Ziplock or the TV brand space bags. I’ve been using the Walmart cheaper ones and haven’t had any problems with them. Save your $$ for more exciting things!

    Things are moving fast, but the house is not yet on the market. Still trying to get it ready for that.
