IRONSOS, even if someone gave that place to me I don’t think I could sleep there. I think it would give me nightmares right through my eyelids. How will they ever sell it?

I think the add said that the place came unfurnished. Another story I found said the owner was some dot com
millionaire who now faces a bunch of criminal charges. The near 600% price rise is stupid.

It is raining steadily today. I need to move the drawers to the apartment.

My daughter is having a field trip today to the local baseball stadium to watch a game. I’m surprised the game has not rained out. So, my daughter is dressing for school for a day spent in the elements. It is about 59F (15C) and raining.

If a ray of sunlight made it to that sparkly shower you’d be permanently blind.

Yesterday I went to see two nurses at our doctor’s clinic: the first one took a blood sample and the second one took my blood pressure three times because it was worryingly high. I had feared that this might happen when the rheumatology expert changed my prescription in order to fight the gout symptoms. The strategy worked but my blood pressure has gone up 162 (best of 3), and had been down to 139 which was acceptable. I am booked to see my doctor in a month’s time.

This afternoon my DS dropped me off at the cinema to see The Host, which I enjoyed very much. I read it long enough ago to be rather hazy on the details, which means I am less likely to be picky. I hope that some who saw it will turn to the book for the complete story.

GRAYMAYNE, is it the rheumatology doctor you will see, someone who can change your gout medicine?

It rained relentlessly today. The field trip to the baseball game was rescheduled to May 8.

I couldn’t move the drawers in all the rain so my mother and I went and washed bedspreads that were too heavy to wash in her home machine. We washed a crocheted one made by my great grandmother four times. It had picked up some staining and we pretreated it and washed it over and over before we were satisfied.

After that I took the spread and the quilts to the apartment and my time was up. It was time to go pick my daughter up.

Tomorrow I will move the drawers and then I will be finished. I will have to bring a few boxes home with me but I will be able to concentrate on my own house for a couple of days.

I will have to go over and take the tree apart and lay it down on Sunday but, otherwise, we will be ready for the moving van. I am ready to get this done.

I will also have some tears over closing the door on that house. It has been “home” for most of my functional memory. I have childhood memories of the other house but my parent’s current house is the house of my high school and college memories. It is where I brought friends, people who are still my friends today.

DEANIE, we were being warned of severe storms all day yesterday that were supposed to strike us last night. I only heard distant thunder and limited lightning. Instead, it just rained and rained. I hope it will pass you quickly.

Lady Hawke It will be my own General practitioner. Unfortunately the gout was caused by the treatment designed to keep my blood pressure in check. I don’t how this will be sorted out.

Morning

At last the sun is out again. I need to go to town while the sun is shining. I have been waiting for it to get time for the stores to open. I need dog food as well as other things.

I need to do spring cleaning. I have seen several cob webs hanging that had not been there before my furnace started working again. I did not realize that a furnance caused so much dust related cleaning. If I did, I have forgotten. I am wondering if I strained my back getting Harley Dog off me while sitting in a chair. He seems to think when my daughter comes by it is time to jump on me while I am sitting in a chair. He is all musel and weighs over a hundred pounds. I have misplaced his collar that reminds him to behave.

Greymayne That is the trouble with the different medicines these days. You take one that works for one thing and discover it is interacting with the results of another med. I hope they will be able to find one that will work for both ailments.

Lady Hawke Things must be looking up for the move to be close to being done. I hope your parents love their new apartment.

I took all the drawers from the dresser and the chest of drawers to the apartment today, eleven drawers. We also took the frozen food and some additional pantry items. My mother cleared out her medicine cabinet in the bathroom and we took that as well.

During the process of this move their wall clock broke. It runs but the dome over the face is broken off. They needed a new one for the apartment so I went to Target and took photos of potential candidates and my father chose the one he liked the best. I went and purchased it and it is running, leaning against the wall of the living room in the apartment.

The house is looking pretty empty. For the trip home I loaded the car with some boxes of things I have collected for myself, things I am going to have to incorporate into my house or put in the attic to sell on ebay…or end up donating.

I am not planning on going to my parent’s house to work tomorrow. I intend to stay here and clear away some more things.

Hello! We’re off daylight time now, it’s definitely starting to feel like we’re heading towards winter here!
Now I’ve gotten to university I’m not even sure if I’m studying the right thing – I’ve discovered I have massive interest in biology now >.<
I hope you’re all well! Have a lovely morning/afternoon/evening wherever you are :)

HarriettPotter Hi, it’s good to hear from you. Congratulations on getting to university! It sounds as though you need to talk to someone about your choice of course. I hope that your winter won’t be as beastly as ours in U.K.

Lady Hawke Good luck with your home tidying session. It sounds as though you can see some light at the end of the tunnel.

Hello Graymayne! I’m definitely going to do that – this whole system is very new to me but it sounds like it’s pretty common to change majors anyway!
Winters in my new city are far more mild that my old one, woo hoo! No frosts!

Morning

Harriet How nice to hear from you. How far is the University from where you did live? Are you living on campus? I finally got on skype and saw my granddaughter’s place on campus. It seemed pretty nice and did provide some privacy even thought the complete apartment was shared by four girls. Is this anything like you have?

It is getting daylight again by 6:30 AM and the birds are singing. Even though it got colder yesterday it is suppose to warm back up today. At least it will be in the low 60’s although it might rain again.

I have so much I want to do but I have to wait until my back feels better. After I got back yesterday from the store, I was wore out. No working for me. My grass suddendly needs mowing. I guess it is from all the rain we got and the warm weather. It will have to wait until next week. At least my neighbors have not started mowing their grass yet. When they do, I will have too.

When I got back yesterday I found a NO Water Boiling notice stuck in my gate. So nice of them to give us a date for the water to be off three days later. I had been boiling my water for a couple of days just in case but it seems it wasn’t the water line they were repairing but the ……………. Oh what the fireman hooks their hoses up to when fighting a fire. Fire Hydrant.

Friday must be shopping day for a lot of people. Because I went early I was stopped by several people I knew for a quick chat. It actually was nice. I noticed that there was a lot of older people doing their shopping. That is why I was gone so long. At least one of the reasons. Have I said that we have a new Super Center Walmart? It takes me so long to shop now because I don’t know where anything is. I had to go over that store at least 3 different times hunting for things. At least I knew where to go with the smaller store.

Ironsos It seems like every day someone we use to watch on TV or the movies when we were growing up is gone. It is not only movie stars, I only have one aunt left and she is finally in poor health. With my brother’s death, it made the second of the cousins to pass away. It will only get worse.

One of my teachers from high school died this week. She was one of those old style fine teachers completely committed to her profession. She taught English, mostly to seniors in the last year before graduation. By the time you survived her you were more than ready for university. I tested out of university basic English and was able to procede on to more advanced studies immediately. Anyway, I noticed Jonathan Winters death yesterday. My English teacher and Jonathan Winters were born on the same day and died in the same week.

COOLG, there is a definite transition going on, the older generation is almost gone. We are becoming the older generation. I realized last night I was posting on the Facebook page of my late uncle’s great granddaughter. Her sister got married last month and the groom “liked” a comment I made. When I explained to him who I was I had to tell him I was his bride’s grandmother’s cousin. My cousin is almost old enough to be my mother, but still, I am now in that generation. It made me feel old.

I am busy cleaning out my cabinet that I had boxed stuff in. It has no holes in the back for mice to get in but somehow they have. I finally figured out that the cabinet door stays open just a little bit. This is probably enough for the mice to open it to get in. I will have to put some kind of lock on it so it stays closed completely. There were a lot of things that were ok but others had little holes in the package so they had to go. This is the only cabinet where I found traces of a mouse. I have not seen a mouse in a long time. I put out the glue type traps. I think it has caught a mouse and it drug it somewhere to die. I thought I was smelling a rotten onion but since the trap is missing, it must be a dead mouse. I will have to pull out the furniture to see behind it. That is what made me look in my cabinet. I found the trails but they were not visible in the front. The mice were smart and hid their presents. Lol My daughter got two cats because the mice were trying to take over her house so I was not alone.

Lady Hawke I can only remember two of my teacher’s names. My 5th grade teacer and my 8th grade teacher that taught English. She is the reason I was so good in later years. You learned how to diagram a sentence and what each word meant. Before that I could diagram a sentence but I didn’t know what each word ment in the sentence. You know, noun, verb, adverb, etc. I was able to test out of any basic english class in college.

Cool G: Deanie said it best. It is a function of our age that so many of the favorites of our
past are passing away. The fact that Pam Dawber of “Mork and Mindy” is 61 is a testament
to this.

After twenty years I have finally dragged my wedding gown home and put it in my closet. I have dragged some other things home too but so far they aren’t in my closet. My first priority is to clear a path for the furniture that is coming in on Monday.

My mother has called for me to bring additional boxes tomorrow. She needs a way to contain the items they have kept there for their use until the bitter end.

Staying home has not been a break at all. It is after 4:30 and I have not given any serious thought about what we are to have to eat for dinner. Whatever I come up with better be fast and easy.

I have made sacks and sacks of books to donate, over half of them my own novels. It makes me very sad to give away friends but I have no room. I have seen evidence for the last two months of what happens when you keep everything. Someone still comes along and gives it away.

From now on I mean to consider very carefully before purchasing something that will eventually have to face the executioner’s court. Will it be the object that stays and lives another day or will it be the object that is sent away? Unless I am very committed to a piece of bric-a-brac I will be hesitant to purchase it and bring it home because someday I will have to get rid of it.

We took my daughter to her grandparent’s house to spend one last night there with them. My DS had a good look at the furniture that will be delivered here on Monday and took a look at a oak wall cabinet that is still on the wall of my old bedroom. For twenty years he hasn’t wanted to mess with it. The time has come.

We went into Sam’s on the way home and picked up some chicken parmigiana and a cold broccoli, raisin and pecan salad from the deli section. So, I have microwaved the chicken parmigiana and we are almost ready to eat. I had bits and pieces of food in the refrigerator but nothing that could easily be turned into dinner after 8 PM, especially since I have been working today on other things.

We are going to watch Spellbound with Gregory Peck and Ingrid Bergman and go to bed. I still have a lot to do here and at my parent’s house tomorrow. I took my mother some empty boxes so I hope she manages to corral some of her last minute items herself.

The temperature is 16 C but it is dark and cloudy so it doesn’t seem very different from the previous two months except that there is no overnight frost. I am re-reading The Host and the first hundred pages made much more sense than they did first time round. I am looking forward to the experiences in the cave system because it was packed with description of the life that had been worked out there, not something which could be covered in the film.

We didn’t make it thirty minutes into Spellbound. We ate and promptly started falling over asleep in our seats. So, we are going to have to finish it this morning and get moving. We feel as if we are drugged. The pollen here is terrible and I had an awful time staying asleep. We will push through this. The time has arrived. It is a bit like an unfortunate Christmas Eve except in this case the anticipation is having it come to an end.

I know I will still have a lot of unpacking to do but since the bathrooms and kitchen will be functional I can take a bit more time unpacking the fragile items which fill the display cases.

I will have the same project here, unpacking and putting away. So, it will be a bit like moving into two houses at once. At least we can live in both of them with boxes in the corners.

Good evening!

I have had a very lovely few days with my daughter. We saw a lot of my parents, spent an extraordinary amount of time chasing waves at the beach, and did a lot of reading. It was just wonderful, and I admit, very guiltily, that I feel a little……… resentful is the only word, gosh, I’m horrid, at being home again and faced with work tomorrow. Obviously, no one thought to do any laundry in my absence. Or buy any food. I could grumble on. I am an ungrateful wretch of a person. I hope getting back into routine tomorrow, (work, piano, and the offspring are back at school,) will settle me somewhat. At the moment, I don’t like me much.

Won, any news?

Lady Hawke, I am sending lots and lots of hugs.
