That’s Krissie coughing. You can tell by the redness of my face that it’s not staged.
I think I’m feeling better though. At about 80%. We spent yesterday going through Jenny’s massive amounts of clothes, and now I have a huge pile to go through. But I’m scoring Christmas presents for my kids, which is splendid. A book of Fillmore posters from 1966-1970 for my son, a great messenger bag and fabulous shoes for my daughter, vintage Hawaiian dress for my Erin, and policeman thingy for Alex. Very cool, all of it.
The Kindle book kicked ass! Maybe I’m not the sad, forlorn, forgotten has been/never was I was feeling (depression, and also That Which We Shall Not Talk About). It’s also great to have a change of scene and be with my sisters, and we’re very busy going through scenes and I’m scoring clothes but even more important, fabric! So all is good.
And it’s going to be so great to have Jenny near-by. I’m really thinking 6 hours is nearby.
It’s so do-able on a whim.
No photos yesterday, though Lani has a few to share. She and Alex toted loads and loads of stuff to Goodwill. Since they’re young and strong they do the toting and Crusie and I do the sorting. I control my magpie tendencies and we do just fine.
Today more sorting, then an outing to our farewell visit to Steak n Shake, Hobby Lobby and Jenny sends stuff via UPS to McDaniels.
The sun is shining, though it’s cold. The truck gets here tomorrow, we load Wednesday and take off Thursday. We gird our loins and Sally forth and all will be well, all manner of things shall be well.
And I’m excited and happy to be here. More pictures later today, but here’s what the house is looking like, which is a vast improvement. And this is more of the goodwill stuff. Lani’s take most of the furniture Jenny doesn’t want, I’m taking fabric and clothes and alijibres (some of them). It’s going to be glorious!
