I Need a Break!
Monday, November 06, 2017
We are in the midst of a few moves: Sherry, Patrick, and Helena are moving into a new house on the next street. Tim and I will be moving with them until we find our own place - hopefully before the end of the year. Sarah will be moving back into this house.
I put off having my foot operated on from the spring until the fall. The operation was October 9 and I have at least 3 more weeks before I can put any weight on it. So...I have the tasks of doing easy things and being with Helena. Easier said than done. Everyone else works full time. I am home all day not able to do most things and looking at all that needs to be done. If I could, I would have climbed the walls already.
The cable and internet are in my name. I have scheduled a move three times now because the others haven't been able to be ready. It backfired on me over the weekend. Things were shut off on Saturday instead of next Saturday. Being homebound with a 3-year-old and no TV REALLY can be challenging. My daughter apologized to my granddaughter because of the "boring" weekend. I thought I did fairly well with what little we had.
I was two hours this morning rolling around the house while on the line trying to get things hooked up again. I believe I will tell my daughter that she can pick her own company to have in the new house. Let her pay the bill and save the money for the new place.
Sherry had it in her head what furniture would go to the new house. She wants me to keep the old furniture, but doesn't want to place it in her garage. I have my own furniture in a storage unit in Michigan. I suspect that there will be quite a few things in that unit that will be thrown out. Meanwhile, I have more packing to do than I originally anticipated. I thought I would be just pulling out the drawers.
Time to regroup and figure out what I want.
