Getting There

It’s been awhile since I have written. I have been busy clearing out my parents closets. My mom still had some of Dad’s clothing, plus all of her clothing, jewelry etc. I clean out the garage….haven’t touched the shed! Yikes! My mom had 7 totes of stuff. The funny thing is the totes weren’t full. I cleaned out the laundry room and for the most part the kitchen. I am sorting dishes right now. I cleared out my mom’s closet, under her bed and all of the dressers. I finally washed her bedding and the dirty laundry she had from when she went into the hospital last August. That was a hard task. It made everything final… if that makes sense. I have the spare room and the family room still to go and clear out. I am not counting on all of the items my siblings want that I have to put aside and of course they live in another state so no help from them on cleaning and go thru stuff.
As I am clearing things out I have tried to go thru my stuff. I have tried to make my wardrobe minimalist (Insert minion laughing). Biggest problem is that I live in Knoxville, TN and the summers are unbearable. When you wake up at 6:00 AM and it’s 76 degrees out! So I have figured out that I have to have a spring/summer wardrobe and an autumn/winter wardrobe.
So I have narrowed it down to this: (Insert minion laughing again)

Spring/Summer
7 Tank tops
14 Greek tops
7 Sheath tops
7 Tops
14 Tee shirts
7 Skirts
7 Capris
3 Trousers
7 Dresses

Autumn/Winter
7 Tank tops
7 Sheath tops
7 Tops
14 Tee shirts
7 Skirts
7 Capris
7 Trousers
7 Dresses
7 Pullover sweaters

All Seasons
7 Tank tops
7 Sheath tops
7 Tops
14 Tee shirts
14 Skirts
7 Jeans
7 Dresses
14 Jackets
14 Cardigans

Which is a total of 234 pieces of clothing. I am going to try to narrow it down. This should be fun! LOL

Home

The past 9 months have been a roller coaster of emotions. But after tons of tears, heartache and pain there was a light at the end of my tunnel and I was finally able to buy my parents home.

New home

It’s been awhile since I have posted anything. I was going to buy my parents home, but without going into to much detail a sibling of mine got a lawyer.
So now I am house hunting. It is exciting and scary all wrapped up in a bundle of I have to pack and move.

And so the adventure begins!!!

Vacation starts today!

I always take the week of my birthday off. I have to say I think celebrating my birthday will be harder without my parents than Thanksgiving or Christmas was. I am lucky and have good friends that have become like family.
Today I only work a 1/2 day and then meeting up with some friends for lunch.

New Building

Going on the second week of work’s new building and trying to get settled in. Lets see, no heat, not hot water, mice and mice traps! People getting stuck in elevators. Only 4 microwaves for a company of 400 1 paper towel holder, 1 trash can in the cafeteria.
Otherwise so happy to be here!

Moving Day

Moving to the new building. We have tomorrow and Monday off and back to work and the new building Tuesday.
My personal thoughts on that is …. I should have bought a lottery ticket!
