Part 2 from yesterday...



continued from yesterday..........


Well, yesterday after my nerve wracking day of repacking again, cleaning the garage so the truck will fit in it and unsuccessfully searching for better rental car deals, my sister called me out of the blue and said she would come get me and drive me to Dallas. My immediate response was the overwhelming urge to fall to the ground in relief and babble incoherently.



I managed to control that urge. My next thought was God must really have a sense of humor.
Thank you sister dahlink'!!! You have no idea what a relief that is.


So, since I got that good news I decided to try and be grateful and end my ranting. I have really been such a nervous wreck ,I've been on the edge of hyperventilating for 2 weeks.
I suck at relaxing. I need to learn how to chill. Whew!


*************************************************************************

I repacked (once again) from the enormous suitcase on the left to that little tiny bag on the right.



As hard as that was for me (I don't do light packing) seeing that little bag actually felt like a big relief.







Remember all that decor stuff I was planning to take?

Have decor will travel.....



Guess it all gets to stay behind.



Oh well. As long as I can find a way to stuff 2 pairs of boots and one more pair of shoes in that little bag ,I'll be good to go.

********************************************************************

I am making great progress on my 5 page list of chores . I have only the office and my bedroom left to do. Which I will try and get done today.


It's nice and cool and rainy outside . It would be the perfect day to relax if only I knew how. Damn.


Have a wonderful day peeps!

Hey there!Im so glad Bren is driving you. And yes, learn to chillax. I will tell you Im a little jealous that the 2 of you are taking a road trip w/out me. I was so fed up w/myself a few days ago, i was going to just pack up and go to Bren's. I would have called first Bren.
So hope you 2 "chatty Cathy's have a great ride and remember to laugh a lot!
Love Aud

Maybe this is a stupid suggestion....but when I had my foreign exchange student here, she shipped stuff back. Would that solve the problem for you? If its stuff you can live without for a while, ship it the SLOWER most reasonable way...probably by SHIP. LOL

I second or third the motion. Ship it cheapest way - UPS surface? Or look at mailing the stuff. It would get there fine. Congrats on having a sympathetic sis - that is a great solution. The curse is lifting. G5
PS There is a UPS sender right around the corner from the post office, on Higdon Ferry. Go ask.

i still say take the small bag -- and a coat--- and thrift store yourself into a new decor and wardwrobe !!!
the way you shop-- you can do it-- lots less hassle-- especially if you have to change planes or anything. ugh. i have always hated baggage-- even when it was free.

luv me
