Almost Done

I went over to Meryl and Rich's and had a very delicious steak dinner. I do love Sunday nights at the Rose's. Decided not to sleep over because I still have much to do, so now I'm back home taking a break, waiting for the Tylenol to kick in so my back will stop hurting and I can begin again. Probably 2-3 more hours, so I should get to sleep by 1 and then up at 6. Allie loaned me her nap mat - so I don't have to sleep on the hard floor - My living room is mostly empty again and I was just remembering almost 3 years ago when I was moving in. It was 118 degrees that day and my late friend Selma (I miss her so) surprised me with lunch. We were sitting in the living room on the two outdoor chairs I had bought and laughing at one of the movers who kept bringing in one thing at a time - like a pillow, then going back for another thing. Selma said "I'm 70 years old and I can carry more than that, even in this heat." You had to be there and also know Selma. She was a rare gem.

So many happy times in this house. It's where I found my freedom and relearned how to be myself again. It's where I entertained friends and laughed often. It's really nice to leave a house with such pleasant memories and such an important part of my life was spent.

Ok, the Tylenol is kicking in - time to get back to work.

  1. We love Sunday night dinners with you too... I hope you have a wonderful adventure, but I would be lying if I didn't tell you that it didn't suck that you are going to be gone for so long.
