A new day is coming…I am finally free

Packing, packing, packing.  I’m so sick of packing!!  For the first time in my life I really hate that my bedroom is in the attic.  I carry one box down 2.5 flights of stairs and out to my car where it’s about 115 degrees only to run back up the stairs to get another box.  I’m exhausted!  But I figure if I get my car all loaded up today then tomorrow I can run a few last minute errands and then on Friday it’s time to hit the road.

A bit of good news though.  My cat Jezebel is diabetic and has been for about 6 years.  She gets insulin injections twice a day.  Needless to say she is a very expensive and high maintenance cat.  I love her to death but sometimes I run short on money for her supplies.  Today in my packing efforts I found a box in the back of one of the kitchen cupboards that had 100 unused syringes in it.  Oh my goodness!  It was like Christmas!

So maybe it’s good thing that I’m packing up the house I spent the last 15 years in.  I’m finding lots of things that I (a) didnt know I had and (b) bring back lots of good memories (like when I found my Puppy Surprise).  I just wish I had a magic wand I could wave that would put everything in boxes for me.

I’m going to visit my grandmother tomorrow.  She’s in a nursing home and suffers from dimentia.  Today I made some triple berry muffins to take to her.  Let’s hope she remembers my name.  Sometimes when I go there she thinks I’m my mother.  It makes me uncomfortable because she argues with me.  If she’s talking about something I have no idea about (because she thinks I’m my mom) and I say something, then she gets all mad that I don’t “remember” when this or that happened.  It’s frustrating to say the least.

Anyway, here’s to the end of packing coming nearer and here’s to new beginnings.
