I'm SOOOO tired....but honestly....in a week this will be a funny pcs story. It's already fairly funny.
The painters refuse to wait until next week to paint. We'll spend tomorrow trying to empty closets and furniture from the younger bedrooms.... and then WHAT? Put it back for the packers. Grrrr.... Honestly, if we lived in a town with lots of options for contractors, I would be very tempted to tell these guys they were coming AFTER the packers or not at all...and I'm tempted anyway - but I'd like to spend a few days relaxing when the girls are here and not painting. ::snort::
We had a funeral this a.m. - for Jerry. Yes, it is a home going...but shoot....it's hard to say goodbye. I think it's a testament to Jerry that both Chaplains (who are used to speaking at funerals) choked....as for me... watching Jerry's mom simply did me in....way before the funeral started.
Arielle and I went through our scrapbook hoard and thinned things down. I'll take it to church and PWOC and that should take care of it.
I talked with a friend, who I've not talked to for far to long, today.
Mike and Jared are rewiring the garage. UM......didn't we all KNOW it would NOT be as simple as tearing a "non-weight bearing" wall out????? ::snort:: We have this jinx thing going on....so Mike discovered stuff that needed fixed....and we are ethical; so we fixed it...maybe they can tear the room out tomorrow.....
I loaded out all the office supply stuff. Surely, we can buy office supplies in Japan and there is no need to lug it across the pacific. (This is the same thinking that allowed us to pare down our massive sticker collection).
Now - I'm thinking about two big things....will the packers pack my spices that are in Tupperware? I plan to tell them NOT to pack any food except some rapadura, spices and 400# of wheat berries.
Will my beautiful memorial painting, to our babies waiting in heaven, get ruined in the move? Should I have sent it to storage? NO, that's not safe. Should I leave it with the girls or Mom? I really want it with me. Joneille and Mom gave it to us with the idea that we'd have something we could take WITH us of our babies.....I don't want to leave it...but I really don't want to find a big tear in it when I unpack it. Anyone moved art before?
I worked on THIS today....because it made me feel more in control to do something pretty for the house and take my attention off the killer West TX dust bunnies that were lurking behind the hutch, the bookshelves and the piano. ::snort::
Heather, my sister in law, called. THEY are moving to China around the same time WE are moving to Japan. They are finishing the last bit of moving out of their home today. Soon - we'll be there soon.....hopefully by next Friday night.... I swear I'm about ready to rent a bulldozer....
