We must print our names, initial the list, hand over the $2 and wish each other well. Past lists are saved, just in case. The conversations start.
What will you wear.
Who is ordering the limo?
See you in Harrisburg on Monday.
Lunch is on me...for everyone.
I always thought I'd continue working, right to the bitter end.
After ensuring my family was taken care of, I'd be philanthropic. Donate to my previous employer, of 27 years, a hospital. Maybe have a room or wing named after me.
Donate to my current employer, Red Cross. Upgrade some of our equipment. Buy a condo so I could walk to work and go home on weekends. After all you still need something to do.
Or say screw it all buy the RV and drive
What would YOU do?

We simply had some good weather and lots of time together.
My younger daughter stayed over for the weekend and helped up with some projects. We happily got clean-dirty sanding and pasting the repairs in my bedroom. The older one and her family came for dinner and everyone took turns chasing the dust-devil around the house.
He reminds me of Dennis-the-menace!
We three girls sat and chatted like old-times, giggling over dumb things.
A wonderful Mother's Day!
I hope yours was wonderful too!

Saturday morning the crew came and finished the roof, replacing my rotted skylights.
We wouldn't open the old ones anymore fearing they wouldn't close. Happy, happy, happy that they fit in like they were born there. A bit of touch up paint and caulk, one is good to go. The other needs me to find a 10ft ladder so I can repair the water damage.
Anticipating major mess we had moved the bed into an empty room.The carpet in my bedroom was there when we moved in 29 yrs ago. My furniture was purchased in 1977...cannon ball bed, massive dresser with hutch top. Turn sideways to walk by the bed. This was all purchased to fit a different room in a different space. Time for new.
I pushed DH out the door when the crew left and we went furniture shopping. Being the savvy internet trekker, I had already narrowed my search and needed to see "live" objects. We found what we liked. But I needed to see a bit more on Sunday.
Sunday found the old me.
I started by moving nightstands and a small chest. Plunk them on an old sheet and you can drag them over carpet for blocks. Next I sliced up half the carpet. Yuck. Emptied the walk-in closet and split between two rooms. Now we have his and hers! Guess who has 2x the clothes his wife has? Emptied more junk from corners.
Cut up carpet in closet. Vacuum everything exposed. Filled old floor vents with spray foam to prepare for cement. We replaced HVAC 4 yrs ago and went from sub-floor heating to overhead. All the vents need blocked and filled.
Went to store and got cement, carpet samples and paint samples. Ha, ha...we picked a shade almost like what we have and we both swore it was different! Sometime you gotta stick with what you like.
Drove to a store and looked at last piece to be sure we found what we like. Walked around mall and bought new undies! Sometime a little blue lace is all you need. Went to another store and got storage bins for temp drawers as all this furniture is going to donation as soon as I can arrange a pickup.
Cooked a light dinner and collapsed.
That feels like the old me!
