The Countdown Begins!
It's 22 days before our move to leave our home of 33 years. This seems to start our countdown because our neighbors are throwing a party for us tonight. I'm rather bemused by the kindness of people. When my teacher friend told me a month ago that she wanted to secure a date before everyone else latched on to the available dates for a farewell party, I was a bit embarrassed. I had to tell her we really weren't expecting anyone to throw us farewell parties. We don't have big groups of friends. Our friends are rather spread out and don't know each other. But now suddenly, our schedule is becoming quite full. My husband, Art has even had to cancel his get-together with one of his EPA friends because he needs to take me for a thyrogen cancer scan in a couple of weeks. We are very, very touched by the affection everyone is warming and supporting us with.
Goals for today:
Empty out my nightstand and my desk.
Pack up some of our granddaugter's toys that are strewn about the family room. There's so little open space that it's hard to organize the first priority things from the low priority things to go into the moving container.
Change our credit card addresses.
Oh, oh! Gotta go. Art is going downstairs to make some pancakes. He's trying to use up a lot of our staples.
