Things are coming along  
I'm home again. Today is the first time in a long time I have felt somewhat normal. I don't know why but my normal calm self was here. Things are not over but the end seems to be in sight and I do hope nothing else will happen. The house is almost done. Tomorrow Chris and I will go there to get as much as we can out. Almost everything is packed but the big furniture and electronics. I'll post details of what I have been packing later on in another post. I got home early as I didn't want to do it anymore and not much left I can do alone anyway. On the way back I figured I'd treat myself to something fun. I've been working so hard for months. So I went to the near by pumpkin patch and splurged. I bought myself one of the biggest Wold pumpkins they had. Those are a new breed with huge stems. I LOVE a good stem on a pumpkin and these are the best. I bought a small orange one, a small white one and a small hubbard squash that looks like a little bird. I'll get some googly eyes and glue them on so you can see how it looks like a bird. I took our house garbage to the dump so now we don't have to do that in the morning. And then I washed the front patio. It's ready for the pumpkins I bought and for nice Halloween decorations. That was good progress.

After that we finally got to take Mike out for Dinner. We went to Ruby Tuesday's and had a nice meal and very nice conversation. It was nice to catch up and have some laughs. We gave him a gift too which he was happy about. We got a new Welcome Mat with little birds on it at Lowes and then we went to Game Stop and Chris got a new game. I think the rerelease of the Batman games for PS4. I'm so tired but today was very nice. I'm looking forward to the progress. Oh and Chris paid for another month on our small storage unit as we weren't able to get the office furniture out in time. So now we put that up for sale on Craig's List. Need to do that soon to get it out of there. We hope to start emptying the big one once everything is out and then we can close out on that and just keep the small one. So much to do but things are coming together.
I finished reading White Shark to Chris. He liked it and we had the same complaints. Perhaps I'll review that book once I have time.
I'm so glad LJ finally fixed the calendar.

I'm glad to hear that progress has been made and that you are looking after yourself. It's so important.

Thanks. I appreciate that. I've lost weight over this. I'm not on a diet but I'm glad. It was a pleasant surprise. I guess I've been eating healthier during this and getting exercise from all the moving.

I don't think you could feel calm over there with all the clutter and old memories. But you have made a lot of progress and I'm so glad you can still celebrate Halloween. And also that you finally got to take Mike out and have fun times.

Definitely not. It's the unexpected stuff from other people that really have me stressed and the clock ticking away. Yes progress has definitely been made. Mike has been a wonderful house sitter for several of our vacations. We've been wanting to do something nice for him for a long time and finally were able to.

Yeah, the unexpected stuff from other people that you have to deal with...*sigh*. It's none of your making.

That's good that you are able to have a break and feel normal.

Yes it was needed. Well back to worrying now.
