I keep telling myself . . this ain’t bad! There are folks other places with real disasters, and, this is a disaster of our own making! 🙂
My plan was to not even go downstairs today, although the upstairs doesn’t look so great either.
The kitchen is filled to a nice point. Cabinets aren’t bulging. I seem to have what I need to cook and get by but that pile of boxes are in the dining room and they all say “kitchen” on them. That’s a lot of stuff. One says “bread pans”. How many bread pans do I need? Definitely not a box full considering there are already some in the kitchen.
I wanted to order a new slipcover for the sofa.
This sofa is almost 30 years old, still looks brand new, is as comfortable as can be but . . those flowers! The slipcover I wanted is kinda fitted at the bottom and this sofa has a “skirt” around it. I called Sure Fit and they told me what to do (fold it under the sofa or up and pin it) but I just wanted to be sure I could actually do that so . . I had to go downstairs.
This is how the sewing room was left. I should’t complain. There’s a path! Those black and yellow tubs — not even mine! Vince told me that at the end when he realized there was room on the U-Haul, he started bring out stuff (not labeled) to go on the truck and there it all is. But, even taking all Vince’s stuff out, I still have a mess.
After checking out the sofa, I went into the food storage room and opened a few boxes. The second box I opened had the flour I use for making pasta. How lucky was that?
I brought the pasta maker with me several trips ago because I love homemade pasta but I have to clamp it to something and I’m not clamping it to the dining room table (too nice of a table and it’s on rug and I get flour on the floor). So, I decided to put the legs on the breakfast room table but I can’t pick it up by myself.
I think Chad and Nicole will be going to Joplin Friday and they’ll probably run by here and they’ll help me do that and move a piece of furniture out of the living room that I don’t want.
My legs and feet hurt from too many trips up the stairs yesterday. My elbow hurts from lifting too many boxes so really, I’m not doing much today. I’m even laying off the knitting because that sometimes makes my elbow hurt. I have to pay attention to the aches and pains and not make them worse. It’s a good day for sitting and reading.
