...Sung to the tune of Vacation, by the Go Go Girls (80's flashback!)
What a week it's been! What's that? It's only Wednesday? Daaaang, we've managed to cram a lot into this staycation of mine!
What have we accomplished so far?
We've got Mom moved over the mountain and 75% settled into the new house. As of today, the kitchen is unpacked and organized (with the exception of the pantry, in which Hugh will be building new shelves because the current set-up wastes a lot of vertical space), the living/dining room is almost done (Mom still needs to organize her knick knacks on the shelves of the entertainment center and curio cabinet), and the garage is organized enough for Mom to park her car (Hugh is still planning to install some ladder hooks to hang ladders, which will free up more shelving for boxes and he has to pick up her new freezer and install it).
When I haven't been at the new house helping Mom unpack, I've been knocking items off the To Do List that I've been meaning to get to for, well, forever. I've hauled seven large trash bags full of clothes to the Salvation Army, including two that have been sitting in a corner of Hugh and My bedroom for at least three years (wish I was kidding). The rest of the bags had been tossed in the Man-Cub's old room, and, with them gone; I am working on taking down The Shrine (all of the Cub's old sports memorabilia from High School) so that I can redecorate the room for guests.
I have also scheduled routine maintenance appointments for myself this week, including a hair appointment, yearly dermatologist check-up, my annual physical and a mammogram; where I received a swag bag! Just for letting a total stranger grope my chesticles!
