These last two days have been hectic. Yesterday my daughter, Amanda, and I went up the mountain to gather more of my stuff. Because we were in a hurry we didn't do a lot of sorting. There is a garage sale coming up for my TOPS group here and I will have plenty to contribute. All ready I have one medium packing box full and am ready to start on a second. I will have a great deal more if I can get back up the mountain before the sale.
We got home fairly early yesterday evening, but we were both exhausted so she brought up a few things yesterday and she and her son brought up the rest today. I am ever so glad she lives close now.
Amanda also invited me to go down to their place to do my laundry so before she left yesterday I had her take my laundry downstairs so I could take her up on her invitation. There are machines here, but they cost a lot and I can do the laundry at her house for practically nothing. I did notice today that she is nearly out of soap and bleach and I have those to contribute. I think that it will work out fine for a while at least.
Nina, I am so sorry that you are having difficulties with the DIL again. Eventually things will smooth out, but for the moment you and the children have my prayers. BTDT and I just watched my granddaughter having similar problems with his ex-wife. It is too bad when children become the collateral damage as their parents fight to keep a close relationship with them.
I am exhausted tonight. The weather has been delightfully cool the past couple of days so I have done a great deal more physical work than usual. I guess taking advantage of the good weather is about to end for a short time. I will catch up on my rest eventually.
See you all later,
