Packing

Today started out slow. Homemade oatmeal pancakes with stripples and fresh mango juice.

Very nice.

I decided to skip the church service and visit my elderly friend. She was very happy to see me and a friend I had taken with me. After the visit I was treated to a spaghetti lunch with pea salad and apple pie.

By the time I got home I was feeling tired. Maybe jet lag.

After sundown I went to the store to pick up more packing supplies. I had tried calling a friend of mine but his cell was disconnected so I headed over to his place – a van parked next to a storage unit. This is where he has lived for the past 3 or so years.

He has not been able to get social security disability so lives out of his van. I think he actually enjoys it now.

We shared a nice conversation and he told me he would come help tomorrow.

Then I started packing. And packing. And packing.

It seems like it never ends.

I finally stopped for the night. I have help tomorrow and I’m sure we’ll get through it all. After all, the moving company comes first thing Monday morning.

Things I had decided to take before have now gone to the Goodwill pile. So much stuff!

I’m sitting with a glass of chocolate milk trying to unwind. It’s 2 am Minnesota time.

Right now the only thing I can think of is a bed at the Hilton with nice soft down covers and a view of a full moon. After the bubble bath, of course.

At least my imagination still works.

Better try unwinding a little better as my 7 am wake up time is fast drawing near.
