Stuff, stuff, and more stuff

Stuff, stuff, and more stuff. I have accumulated so much over my lifetime. I’ve decided it doesn’t make me happy.

I went through some old Christmas stuff and decided to get rid of it. I know buried among the ornaments are ones from Mom either passed down or bought for me. I’d rather have Mom then all this stuff. I am keeping the Christmas village houses that I made and a couple of nutcrackers but that’s it. I haven’t touched this stuff since before Sally and she’s 12 years old!

So, if anyone thinks I’m nuts, so be it. I could probably make a little cash selling it but I just don’t have the energy or time to do so. I think tossing or donating it would make me happier.

Remember this when your kid says they want something. How long will it last? Will it give them joy? Or will it collect dust and eventually be tossed.

Had a dream about Nana and Mom this morning. I miss them both. I miss the chats, the cooking, everything. There are still times I want to dial the phone and hear their voices. But I know they are with me always.
I have a few guardian angels up there now. Maggie, Mom, Nana, Gramma. They are all watching over me.
Do you believe in angels?

Thanks!

Thank you to Dani and her son for helping to pack my grandmother’s china for the move. Moving date 12/12/19. Excitedly nervous. Have a lot to do still. UGH I am NEVER moving again after this. I have donated two pickup trucks worth of stuff and am slowly filling the dumpster. Please remind me not to accumulate so much crap from now on! It’s just stuff someone has to toss later.

My daughter suffers from PTSD, social anxiety and generalized depression. We are in search of a service dog to mitigate her symptoms. We found a trained service dog but it is costly. Please consider a donation no matter how small.

Mom’s house

This thinking about something to write everyday can get tedious.

Anyhoo… J brought some stuff over to Mom’s house. I think I’m going to keep calling it that for a while. Mom’s house. She was the only owner, so I still think of it as hers even though I own 1/3 of it. Someday I will call it my own.

Getting quotes from movers, getting my house power-washed, cleaning, packing, etc. Lots of work to do and I am feeling a bit overwhelmed. So, if anyone has any words of wisdom, please pass it along!

My brothers and SILs have done so much work with cleaning up Mom’s house I feel guilty asking them to help me.

On the move

Been a few days since I have posted. My mind has been on the move. Pun intended. About midnight I awoke and decided I had to do something. I took a duffel bag and filled it with summer clothes. I put it by the door, ready to take to my next living space.
This morning Abby was sitting next to the bag and looking at me. She thinks I’m going on vacation. Little does she know; she’s moving with us. LOL.
