Sunday Evening

Sunday, September 26, 2010

Well, we survived the garage sale. Didn't get rid of all the big stuff but some..and a lady stopped by this afternoon and wanted the rolltop desk. So one less big item left. My Best friend and her mom left to go home...about 10 hours away. We had the best time together. Her mom is so much fun and 81 years old. She can out work me any day. She has the best attitude and never complains. Oh to grow old like that. She is constantly learning and figuring out how to do things. She is such a blessing to me. It feels like high school days again...how funny to feel like you are reliving those days at 53! These times are so precious and we never know how many more we will get.

Now back to work and normal routine for awhile. Packing up my office to relocate 4 miles away. Been kinda nice to be alone and kinda long for co-workers again. Going from 5 to 1 has been quite a change.

35th class reunion coming up Oct 8 so I will be making a 10 hour treck "Home". Computers have helped us reunite a lot of us together...so hopefully we will have a nice turnout for this reunion. I am looking forward to it and to seeing my brother and his family and my only living aunt and uncle. It will be good to see them.

Took a nice drive with hubby today. Enjoyed the sunshine and time together after the busy couple of weeks we have had.

Best get ready for tomorrow....

    Sounds like you have had a busy but fun weekend, enjoying your friend and her mother. Yes most of these elders can put us to shame most of the time! Glad you at least got out for a nice drive, just to get out for a while, sometimes rejuvenates us. Take care and I hope you have a great time at your reunion. Hugs Lynne

Friday

We've made it to Friday! Garage sale going well. Not getting rid of big furniture yet but will lower prices and see how it goes. Sold lots of sheets, towels kitchen stuff though.

We girls went to bed around 9:30 and that has helped me feel better this week. Think with coming back Sunday night from Texas and jumping into the garage sale and working really wore me out.

My time with best friend and mom is almost over. They have been awesome. What a treasure to have such good friends. I feel like I'm in high school again. We laugh, cut up and have such a good time together. We just enjoy each other's company. What fun memories we are making.

Mum festival starts tonight. Will take them to the car show...just to walk around and see things going on. A fun evening ahead.

Thanks for everyone's support. I appreciate it and it keeps me moving forward.

Day of Garage Sale has finally arrived! So stiff and sore can hardly move. My best friend and her mom are troopers. They have worked so hard. It's been hard to keep up with them. Think we are about ready. Now the thing is I want it to all sell and we be rid of it all.

    Hope your garage sale went well today. Sorry you have having problems...praying for healing or at least that the stiffness and soreness is better for you. Sounds like you may have overdone it just a bit. Either that or you received the rain and cold we had yesterday. Praying...
May your Friday be better.

Wednesday

Wednesday, September 22, 2010

Well we have made it to Wednesday. Took the day off yesterday and my best friend and her mom adventured to Longaberger and spent the day shopping. We had a wonderful time and made baskets. "Mom" (best friend's mom) even won a basket. She was tickled as she "Never" wins anything. Got home around 9 pm and worked on garage sale until 11PM. They are so awesome and we have a lot together. Have to go in early for work meeting. Will put up the tables and lay things out tonight for garage sale starting Thursday. Don't know what I'd do without my best friend and her mom. They are just awesome people/friends. They are the best. God places people in our lives and these two are just treasures. We laugh until we cry. In high school we used to go over to their house after school and "mom" always had the best snacks. When the three of us are together it is like we've never left high school days. Oh to age as gracefully as her mom. She is such a worker...she is so funny and positive and fun to be around. She has the usual aging struggles but she doesn't give up like my mother in law does. She doesn't expect people to wait on her or take care of her. She will do it herself until she is no longer able to. All this and she is over 80. What a good example to follow. Of course I don't think she's gained an ounce over the years!

Well off to start the day. When this week is over I will probably CRASH.

Off to exercise...

Off for an adventure with best friend and her mom. We/they worked hard putting the garage sale together. What would we do without good friends. They are awesome! Mom is over 80 and she is such a hoot to be around. She keeps right up with us and we laugh together so hard we almost cry. What a blessing they are to me.
