Hell Week......

Before I get started on my long day I thought I would start , a diary of sorts of this move... I'll call it "Hell Week"
First I have to give you a run down on how we came to be involved in "Hell Week".
Last Month our(insert your own nasty names here) Land Lord asked us to move, She had sold this house. She was sorry but since She had sent us notice last month we had to be out by the 15Th of July. (another bad word inserted here) We had not found a house, we had not really started packing, We really hoped she was kidding! She wasn't.... So we faced the real possibility of being homeless....
Our Son, which we often don't give enough credit to, as far as him being an Adult. Anyway He, Yes He, found a house on Friday and we signed the lease on Saturday. So with that Our bleak outlook on life was changed.....
We then realized we had 8 days to pack, clean and move. So here is my first of entries called Hell Week:
Moving can be a huge pain in the buttocks. I would be lying if I said I was not ready to be done... I asked My husband if we could just pick out what we wanted at the old house and move it and say a tearful goodbye to the rest. He said "that would be nice .... But no"
I can't seem to get focused on this move, it's the best of all the moves so why can't I focus..... I guess because as I get older the things I held onto as a younger woman just are not what I want to hold on to now.
I would like to have the Will read right now and disburse the proceeds ! To my Darling angel eyes , I leave the Great Green vases that have started more feuds in our Family than you could ever know about.... They have even been "smashed" so to speak for a Matchbox 20 concert contest, I wanted to go so, yes I pretended to smash them( Shhh.... it was really Busch Beer bottles, but don't tell anyone , K?)
And also you get my sewing collection, I am not responsible for the huge pile of fabric , the 5 sewing machines and all the loose needles.... or the 50 million UFO'S ( in sewing that means unfinished objects) that I leave behind. You also get one of the 3 Dachshunds, we decided you get Sherman, Even though your Sister wants Sherman, We are giving her..... Sissy. We have to be fair you know, no one gets everything they want. Woot!
Next is peanut/sunshine you get my Painting , Yes I didn't finish allot of that either...... Oh yes and my Cookie jars, may they be as hard to find a place to display them for you as they were for me. Oh yes and try to keep them dusted, I'm watching...he he he . I then would like for you to have all my Naked pictures (please destroy as soon as possible as not to cause a laughing riot).
Oh yes you get Sissy.... Ye haw!
Then I leave to my Stinky Feet(Son Will) My Scrapbooks because his Girl Friend likes them. My snow globes because what the hell am I gonna do with them up here. all of my apple stuff because No real person collects this crap.I also leave to you all of my Dachshund collection. (it's weird how this stuff just grew) oh yes and you get Tadpole, the terror of all Dachshunds, we felt it only fair because you helped make him this way.......
The to my Sweet B.B. you get all of Grandmas good stuff , I give to you my pig collection and my Dolls... I also have a dog for you, My Low Rider action dog.
The rest of the crap throw it out , Because its even less valuable that the stuff the kids got!
Oh yes , I am stricken on who gets the china cabinet with NO china, It has all of my memories from the past 19 plus years , You three will have to work this one out , I trust you will honor my memory by fighting at least a little over it. LOL
So there that's my Will ... I leave this disclaimer : I don't care what you wanted , you get what I say you get !
Signed Mom.....
OK so this really isn't a Will but it's a way of saying I want to rid myself of the stuff I've carried around since the Kids were little.....
We started packing Saturday, we decided that this was gonna be bigger than we both thought so we bought a 12 pack( I haven't drank in 3 years-it was fun) got a little drink going on and started packing again. We then said to each other after sorting through our dresser: OMG! whats wrong with us , we have old paper work from 19 years ago. we are truly dysfunctional .....
so it's now Tuesday , and fate has reared it's ugly head again, Georg and Will are going to a concert.... I can't tell them not to they bought the tickets ages ago.... I am going to be packing while they have fun.... I wonder is this supposed to be a joke on me or what LOL.....
I also have found that you find all sorts of things you either lost by accident or on purpose, Georg found his T backs- Woot!
We found Sissy's Halloween costume , A couple bags of M&Ms I was hording and the drill....
So I'm off now for day 2 of Hell Week you all have a great day and as always.......
Peace!




So while packing I found this, Sissy's Halloween Costume, Doesn't she look happy !

I took a few pictures of the place I most love in the new house, I'll be spending a lot of time there..


It already has more room than my old kitchen......

And here's the front of the house......

New house looks awesome. You are not scary, you are funny. I detest moving and I can relate to how you feel. I've been in the rental house we have now for over 7 years. The thought of moving paralyzes me. Now that housing proces in the SEattle area have gone through the roof we are stuck here anyways. It's kinda a dump but it's fairly affordable.

Best of luck for hell week.!
