Quilt With Us

Let's see, I was in bed by 2 a.m. and up by 7 a.m. to try to get the house in a "presentable" enough condition that the realtor could take pictures for the house listing. I used up the LAST of the tubs (242 to be precise) and stuffed numerous duffle bags, with items to avoid going back to Walmart to purchase yet MORE tubs. LOL.

We walked the property with her showing her with our boundaries are, showing her the pond, the out buildings and my studio. Unfortunately, she has to wait until we've removed the floor to ceiling tubs in order to get the photo's she wants of what that looks like. Then it was a tour of the house and taking photo's that would compliment the house and trying NOT to get the stuff lying here and there waiting to be either packed or discarded in the picture. My DH cannot believe just how much I got accomplished today while he was out making the yard look presentable.

Tonight we went out for sushi and to celebrate our 6th wedding anniversary a day early. Monday will be shot in total as I have a doctor's appointment that takes 3 hours (1 way) to get to and by the time we get home I'll be too tired to do much of anything. The moving trailer gets delivered on Tuesday and we start filling it up with all the tubs and such. The loaders will be here on Wednesday and will handle all the heavy items we have. Thursday the driver returns to pick up the trailer and, if its not too late in the day, we'll be on our way to our new home. It will be hubby's job to give the SamWise, our cat, his kitty valium to get him ready for the trip. Once he's been on the road for a while he'll be fine and he'll either be in hubby's lap or on his side of the dash while I'm driving and the reverse when hubby drives (if I let him, hehehe). Sam has ridden cross country when he rode on the dash from Arizona to Michigan 6 years ago and just loved watching the road signs pass over head. Reminded me of one of a bobblehead with the way he'd move his head back and forth was the sign traveled overhead.

Will be glad when I can start unpacking, getting my new home and order AND getting back to my art quilts, fiber arts and letting my creative juices have an outlet. Not being able to sew or experiment with different techniques I've seen is making me crazy! I'm having serious withdrawals here. LOL.

Think this will be last posting until I am set up in the new digs. If I'm able to get on in spots, I may even post a picture or two of our adventures.

Adios, until later my friends.

Terri- thanks...we were in a Charming Charlie's store playing around and hubby clicked that picture!!! We were flying and I didn't buy the hat, but have regretted it since I got home!

Hope the move goes well.  Sounds like you are moving quite a distance.  It will be exciting and fun to set up your new sewing studio (and home).

Oh, Pam, forgot to tell you I just LOVE your avatar! That hat is scrumptious!

Thanks Pam, hard to breathe sometimes. LOL. The day before I had a melt down when the bank processing our loan sent us a letter, by mistake, saying we were "temporarily" approved pending completion of 3-pages of items we had never been asked for to begin with. I totally came unglued, sent 4-emails to our lender, plus 3-phone calls leaving voice mail messages. Had a good cry and was convinced things had just blown to kingdom come. Hubby was sure it was either a routine form letter or a mistake, I was exhausted and thinking worst. Got answer from person handling our loan who stated it was a mistake and to just disregard the letter and throw it away.

I was very relieved, felt silly for melting down but did NOT throw the letter away. I wrote on it the date, time and the instructions to disregard and who gave those instructions. Guess I worked with lawyers too long.
