This owl is me and the "S" Word

I know I have posted this before.  But it is so me right now.  So much to do.  I am pacing myself. I have to.  I take a lot of breaks.
Now about the "S" word.  I don't swear much at all but I do say this word on occasion, like when I dropped a wok on my big toe Saturday.  Well, I wanted to say it then but instead I hopped around the house moaning very loudly.  After all Hubby and I were watching M and M (5 and 8) and two little ones (2 and 5 months)  I was loud.  It hurt.  After I calmed down and about passed out the two year old came and handed me an old camera that the grands had taken out of my garage from the day before clean up.  So sweet.  I think he thought it would make me feel better.
Yes, we took a break and babysat from 9 - 5 so their parents could do a mud run.  Don't fret as same parents cleaned out our entire garage the day before.  Everything is in a different place outdoors now as well.  My DIL didn't like my garden in the rusty wagon hah.  The young ones don't get the whole reuse, vintage, junk thing.  Way too modern,  these kids are now a days.    Well Friday evening ended with Hubby's work car breaking down.  So I had to go get him.  He works an hour away.  Instead of coming home we ate at a place that we both loved when we lived in that area.  So it wasn't all bad.  He now has a rental and I have new tires as of this morning.
Sunday we joined the church and then afterwards took our friends and their family to dinner.  This was the family that we followed to this church.  They could be our kids, almost.  Their youngest is our oldest granddaughter's very good friend.  Funny note.  Years ago in my home pre-school I had their oldest that is now 16.  I also watched the youngest with my grands when she was five.  Who haven't I watched, hah.
We have found our condo.  So excited. I will explain more later about it.  Now to sell our house.  We should list this week.
This is the last stop before the nursing home.
Hoping to have a garage sale this week-end. It will be the first of a couple I am sure.  One now and then one when we move and for everything that doesn't fit.
DIL didn't like my choice of color for our bedroom.  She said it wasn't neutral enough.  Then I visited her studio (exercise).  She painted the bathroom the brightest blue ever.
She also said the family pictures have to come down.  I took some down.....not all.  I'd feel like I was in a hotel.
It has been nice here weather wise.  Cool days.  Rain but mostly at night.  I could have this weather all year long.  Stay away hot days.
So my friends, I will be back soon.
Reading but not posting much.

How great that you've found a condo you like! Hoping for a quick sale for you.

I'm glad you found your condo. I don't necessarily agree with that idea that you have to strip your home of personality thing. Whenever I hurt myself and a curse word just bursts out, Abi jumps Charlie and they start fighting! How weird is that?

Oh- God bless you, Debby. I know it is a big project. That is my "swear word" of

I know it is a pain in the butt, but as a person that has lived in and sold 15 houses, your DIL is need neutral colors and pack away your family pictures. You have to take the word HOME out of your HOUSE right now and think of it as a PROPERTY and NOT your home. The people coming in it need to be able to see themselves in there and it is hard to do when there is too much of YOU in there. Does that make any sense? Not telling you what to do -just telling you what I think from years of experience.

Love ya- write when you can- xo Diana

Hi Debby, I am so happy for you and I hope your home sells quickly. Have you thought about an auction instead of a garage sale. They do sell it all and you don't have to worry about what is left. You and me both have sore feet. I dropped a heavy coffee mug on my foot. As I told the kids at least it was empty so I didn't get burnt. Have a wonderful day. Take care my friend. Hugs and Prayers from your Missouri Friend.

I do say that naughty word. Guilty as charged. I hope your home sells quickly and you can start to enjoy condo life. So much to do. I'm tired for you. Hugs!!

How exciting for you and your husband.
Condo sounds like a fun place to live..

Kelly said...

Don't feel bad. I've said that "s" word more than I should admit! Sometimes, it just fits the situation best. LOL! Glad you didn't lose your toe from it. Glad to hear you found a place to move to. Seems like so many bloggers are moving right now! I laughed when you said this was your last stop until the nursing home.

Debby, I hope your house sells quickly and you can move into the new condo. Wow, I just love the photos of your "Mall Church". I've never seen one of these, but it would be wonderful if we had one close by here. What a great way to gather and pray.

I'm still at work, but will be heading on home soon. I love Monday mornings! My little guy is waiting for me at home. His "welcome home Mommy" greetings are just so wonderful.

I hope your weather stays nice for your move. You have a fabulous day, hugs, Edna B.

Hi Debby,
Well thinking we could downsize sure didn't work for us with our move to Alaska 13 years ago. We went to double the size we had or more. People come to visit and we need room. We just need room as we're inside in Alaska move than CA. I hope this works out for you getting rid of stuff. I am always for that and constantly getting rid of things I have and no longer care to keep. Good luck. Take care Nan

I live in a free standing condo now. there is no storage outside of the six foot by four foot space under the stairs. I use one of the extra bedrooms for storing my tablescaping stuff along with the garage. Good luck on your garage sale and impending move. It is better to sell off the things you don't need before you move instead of having to pack them. Have a great day..... Candy

cant wait to hear more about the condo!
