My daugher leaves to return to college today. She already knows I'm going to miss her. I'm determined not to tear up or act mournful today. It doesn't help me or her. I'm so proud of her and the opportunities she has right now and in the near future. So, I'll simply ask her if there's anything she needs help with.
My son packs up this week, and I'll deal with that in my mind later.
We ate out last night, but I had planned for it so I'm still within the ranges. Today, I'm splurging early. It's our last family breakfast together for a while and I'm making the blue berry pancakes I know she likes. Turkey going in the roaster and I'm out of the kitchen.
FlyLady says that today should be a day to do something I enjoy. I'm going to ignore that and work some more on the Mount Everest that is my Master Bedroom Closet. It is half done. 11 bags to good will. 8 bags of trash. A tiny pile to relocate.
We went to Best Buy last night and found that they recycle computers free, so that is where all 5 of the old computers are going. We have an old video camera that is broken, no idea where to send that since it can't go into the trash. 3 boxes of ceramic floor tile that I don't know what to do with. I have a vintage fur coat, some stamps and coins to take to the Pawn Shop.
Changes mean Progress! Babysteps. I'm getting there. Sink is still shiny!!!!
