Gentle Friends I am back in SF with all the fog and cold I like.... Florida's weather while we were there was in the 80's and bright and sunny!!
Going through my Mom's house with my sister was a major undertaking, but we got everything done, we opened and sifted through box after box after box of stuff. The first 4 nights, after going through boxes and closets we spent going through boxes of pictures. My Dad was an avid photographer - and our lives were heavily "documented." I am sure that some of those boxes of photo's haven't been opened in decades, but we needed to see everything - it was kind of fun seeing things and remeebreding past events in Mississippi and Maryland - we each took away a couple of boxes of snaps!!
I had an appraiser out to go over things Monday morning, and hired him to run the Estate sale in the very near future. Monday afternoon the realtor visited and we put the house on the market and by Tuesday we had folks looking at the house... and everyday since then there have been appointments to see it.
- Then on Tuesday I had the Allied Moving guy go over all the stuff to be moved. Thursday, the movers came and packed up and wrapped up everything to be shipped ----
----that stuff is expected to arrive the end of next week in our homes. Friday morning was spent replacing the title to my mom's car and the afternoon was spent with her tax person getting that stuff ready to be gone over. it seemed that every day was filled with something to take care of!!
Needless to say it was a busy, busy week of just dealing with everything. Thank goodness my sister was there, and the two of us got through everything. There was no way around it - and one person couldn't have done it in such a short amount of time.
I haven't touched a needle since the 25th, so there's nothing on that front to see. In Florida I was so whipped by the end of the day, I was just numb, and since I've been back I've not had the inclination. But, I am sure that will change soon. I got a package from 123 Stitch while I was away and it was full of goodies!!
That's about it for today sports fans - I really need to get back into the swing of things and just "get on with it!!" Thanks for stopping by and for your kind comments and emails! Do stop again!
