I can't believe it's been four days since I posted here. I thought it was less. Sigh. Anyway I am happy that so much progress is being made. I am kind of tired of saying that though. I can't wait for the day I can say I am finished working on the house. But I have nearly cleared out everything small now. Some rooms are actually done. Soon only furniture will be left. We're getting close to having the first garage sale finally. I guess I should focus on kitchen stuff, shoes and blankets as that will be the bulk of what needs to be sold. Oh and that office furniture. Gosh it REALLY needs to go. I need to film how my two storage units are stuffed. What's crazy is I've given away literally TONS of things to donations. I've given to Goodwill, Hospice, Salvation Army, Amvets and some private thrift stores. I'm sure it's literal tons of weight of stuff I've given away and I still have junk left over. Junk I hope will make me good money though if I can sell all of it. I'm at the point I'm also just throwing away books now. Really old medical text books that are now outdated and no one will buy or even take for free. I did take two days off and came home. I had to. I was going nuts and it was nice to be with Chris. Though we did go back on our days off to work over there. My Jeep can't carry much so his truck is a big help. I know I totally made the right decision buying the jeep but because of all this I sometimes wish I had bought the Ram instead. Once this is all over I'll enjoy my Jeep. I didn't buy him for carrying capacity. That's not the point. Too bad I can't afford a hitch and trailer now as that would solve that problem and I could carry bigger light loads.

I did manage to get some coloring done and some new art sketches. I soo want to get back to that. Things do seem less stressful too. It will all be coming together by the end of this month. I intend to have Chris's birthday and Halloween off at least. I did clean the entrance way of my house and it looks much nicer with the pumpkins I bought. I'm actually looking forward to cleaning our house once this is over. It's a disaster too but nothing like this other house. I sure won't take 3 months. Maybe there will be money left over too so we can do some home repairs and improvements. I'm heading back over today with the hopes of finishing. I always aim for that but so far nothing. I made three trips to the storage the other day which helped a lot. Ok so you guys know the drill. I may or may not stay there tonight. Depends how much I get done. IF I do Chris will watch my accounts for me and I'll be way from online again.

Look for a Halloween card from me. I intend to write and mail it tomorrow. I need to post about this past weekend too, but I may wait until tomorrow for that too since I will be busy today.

I came home last night after all but was already exhausted. Aw thank you so much. I'll be looking for it then. I forgot I usually send Halloween cards but it won't happen this year. This thing has really screwed everything up for me.

I'm really happy to read things are less stressful and things slowly are cleared up. At this rate things will be sorted at the end of month. Glad to hear you did some art sketches, can't wait to see them :)

Aww it sucks you won't be able to be online again, i will keep an eye on your accounts.

Things are getting better but I can't fully rest until ALL is over which will still be a while. I may post them here actually. I'm thinking of inking the ones of Fear wearing the cloak as they might be easy for something this month.

Thanks. I appreciate you keeping an eye on things while I was away.

I'm glad things are getting less stressful for you at last...and also that you're spending more time at home and with Chris. A garage sale of all saleable items sounds like a good idea. I hope you can get rid of a lot of stuff that way. You don't want to be paying out for storage for too long. Better to donate than keep paying put for storage after your sale or sales.

I'm amazed at how you're still able to be creative during all of this. Well done, you!

And yes, of course you have to take time to celebrate Chris's birthday and Halloween.

Thanks. Yes things are getting closer to the end. I definitely want to get it down to only one storage unit for our extra stuff so it's cheap.

Thanks. I'm dong my best to get through this and stay myself so I must draw something even if it's just a simple doodle.

Yes I can't let this mess get in the way of those special days.
