I was going to wait until tomorrow to write another post, but I find I have some extra time on my hands tonight, so here goes.
We sign on Thursday, we get to take possession on Friday. Now comes the unenviable task of cleaning up after ourselves from our stay with our hosts. Laundry is almost done, but I can’t do any real shopping until we’re at least partially settled and I have access to my flatware, cutlery, dishes and pots and pans. Oh, and an empty refridgerator/freezer that I can put things in.
Work has been a bit hectic, because they’ve been dealing with Tropical Storm Fay.
Our lives have been hectic because we’re trying to dot all the i’s and cross all the t’s for closing. I’m coming down with a nasty cold (I can barely breathe through my nose unless I take a Benadryl or something). We’re trying to coordinate being at the signing, and figuring out what we’re going to do for Friday, AND coordinating the move of our furniture from storage to our new house. Especially the grand piano! I’m still in almost constant pain from the accident (see an earlier post), but am holding off on physical therapy until after the move and I can find a decent doctor over there.
On top of everything else, my mother has been to the emergency room three times in the last two weeks, and I’m stuck here feeling helpless. I guess it beats being there and feeling helpless, but not by much. At least there I’d have the information first-hand instead of waiting for sis to let me know what’s going on.
I’m angsting big time right now, and trying to hold it together until we get through this weekend. Once I do that, I think I’ll just have a nice, relaxing nervous breakdown in our new house. At least then I’ll have my own bed to curl up in, and my piano to pound out some frustrations. After a day or two of that luxury, I’ll have to start planning the house warming party. Everyone is already asking when it’s going to be.
