We’ve both gone back to triage the old homestead before Sunday’s open house, he to cut the lawn and weed whack, and me to weed and plant annuals in some bare spots after the perennials had done their thing.
Today has been a random sort of day.
Hubster went back to the house in the morning to blow the driveway and other areas clear, and now his neck and shoulders are protesting loudly. He’s currently on the couch and likely to stay there for the foreseeable future.
So far today, I’ve:
Sorted bath towels – no, we don’t need a stack of 14 towels for just the two of us.
Reorganized my closet yet again - an ongoing battle between me, my possessions, and limited space.
Walked Mamie, who hasn’t relinquished anything solid since yesterday, so it looks like I’ll be doing that again this afternoon.
Pushed the remaining piles of detritus to the other side (yesterday I made, no lie, at least 25 trips of mysterious boxes from the garage down to the basement) and can now PUT MY CAR IN THE GARAGE!!
Made a trip to the town recycling center’s metal area to drop off a bed frame and a big unwieldy bed guard designed to prevent kids from falling out of bed. Since the youngest grandboy is turning eight, I think we’re good to go. My son and lovely daughter-in-law may have news in the next few years but I figure the guest room has a nice soft rug.
The high point of our day will likely be the 4 o’clock visit from a person I reached through LetGo, the easiest way I’ve ever found to get rid of free stuff. All you do is photograph the item through their ap with your phone and post it. That’s it. No uploading, no email addresses. The interested parties contact you by texting on the site.
And the item? A six foot artificial tree left by the previous owners.
Thanks so very much.
