long long day today

Tuesday, March 30, 2010

Started out with walking the dogs 3.5 miles, then going and packing up my Mom's entire kitchen and moving it to her new place and then all her clothes......worked about 7 hours on that and then I just wanted to come home, shower and get diner when the phone rang and some people who have been doing this DVD documentation video/movie all about the area in Mexico where we live....called and asked if they could please come and video from our terrace since we have (according to them), one of the best views looking down at the village and lake and mountains. So of course I had to say okay, but really now I am sitting here while the film crew is running around and I am not sure when I will get diner and I am hungry. I only had my normal breakfast drink, and then an energy bar for lunch and am munching on some jicama and drinking water. I hope they finish soon so that I can cook diner and relax. They are on like their 20th take of what they are saying and filming....yikes. this could take forever. Long day!

    Jicama........ yummy! Had it for the first time in February when we were in Arizona. Have not been able to find it here in Wisconsin.

Hope the crew is done and out of there so you can get some food into you after your very busy day.

More of moving Mom

Monday, March 29, 2010

I know boring news from Ajijic Mexico today but want my blog points. The weather for moving more of Mom's things was wonderful....about 75 degrees. The good news is that her new place is starting to look like home. Another big job will be settling her in and getting things put away and especially getting things hung on the wall. Lots of work involved. I understand that there is a Mexican artist down here that will come to your house and help decide where things should go and then hang them. Some of my Mom's things are pretty heavy so I might contact him to help. Tomorrow is another day of moving more things and so is Wednesday and Thursday....by then she should be able to spend her first night in her new digs. Then we need to work to get her house all ready for the new owners who take possession on April 12th. So we should have plenty of time to do that.

    Sounds like you are getting lots of exercise with all the moving. So that is a big plus!

Looked at your home pics and it is beautiful. What wonderful views.

Now I am tired..moving Mom

Saturday, March 27, 2010

Worked more on getting Mom moved. She is downsizing so lots of decisions. But today was a great day and she and I got a lot done. 2 Honda Pilot car fulls of stuff packed, and unpacked and put away. It's nice that we have several weeks to get it all done as my Mom is 83 and we can't work from sun up to sun down but she hung in there with me from 10am to 4pm (I did make her take a lunch break). She has a lot of stamina for a woman her age. I admire her,

Forgot how much work it is to move someone, especialy Mom.

My Mother is downsizing and we have been going through all of her things to decide what to take and what not to take. It sure is a lot of work and tons of sentimental things keep popping up for us to make decisions on. But it is a good time to remember fun times from the past. The good news is that my Mother sold her big house down here in Mexico in less than a week and got more than what she was asking for....as well we found her a beautiful two story condo that she loves and loves the neighborhood as well....so I am feeling so good about this move. And for sure all this packing and moving is lots of exercise!
