Husband replaced the girls’ dog door with the original and they are perplexed and NOT pleased. Pearl looked confused but Evelyn got downright cranky about it.
The house continues to get more and more empty. The deck is cleared.
Today, I will schedule the cancellation of some utility services and/or change addresses. They have begun forwarding our mail. I also plan to scrub the basement.
The girls have slapped mud on the stairway walls but it usually cleans easily. Now that they’ve lost their beloved dog door, I’ll be able to keep it clean. Cleaning the basement is a HUGE, dirty job. Husband has used it for his workshop and the girls have essentially used it as a dog house since their dog door allowed them free access.
I’ll also roll up my sleeves and tackle cleaning the fridge. I'll probably bite the bullet and start tossing things from the freezer. Husband has selflessly taken on the chore of eating up the ice cream over the past few weeks. Coincidentally, during the same time, he has repeatedly expressed surprise that he is so COLD. For some reason, the fact that he hasn’t connected the two amuses me to no end and I have just been waiting for it to occur to him.
I am easily entertained.
I find that particular picture of Pearl in the wedding veil entertaining. Actually, I think the look on Evelyn's face (she is getting so sassy, these days) is what really makes me laugh.
We have a contract on a house that we are selling in Texas and they picked this weekend to close. Allegedly, they’ll overnight things for our signature to arrive Thursday morning so I’ll need to sign them, get them notarized and shoot ‘em back. Let’s hope it is that easy. I let them know that anything that arrives after Thursday is not going to be dealt with until next week. No exceptions.
Beyond that, about the only things left to do are wiping nose prints from the windows (truly a last minute chore) and doing a thorough mopping and sweeping. I shampooed the carpet several weeks ago and we’ve been living with rugs all over the place to protect them from muddy feet. We’ll tump the last few things in the dumpster, tomorrow (I do NOT want to give up my mattress!!) and then it is mainly just a question of turning in the cable box, dropping off a television with some neighbors and loading the car.
I have a favorite yogurt and ate up the last bit, this morning. I actually considered going to get more when it dawned on me that there are things in the refrigerator that need to be eaten. So I am skipping the trip to the store. Hmm. Probably won’t be going back before we leave!
Penny, Evelyn and Pearl
