I called my 91 year old mother yesterday and said, "I am not as young as I used to be". Her response was, "HA!!! You're not. Welcome to my world." I personally thought that was insensitive. I expected something more along the line of, "Of course you are, Laura. You look exactly the same as you did 40 years ago, and I'm sure you must feel just as young". I think there should be an unwritten rule that mothers should not be so honest.
As you know, I am packing to move, and my move has been moved up. I will be signing the lease on Friday. Next weekend will be spent moving all of the things that I want to heft and carry myself, and the the movers will be coming on the Monday morning after that to get my furniture and boxes. (My stuff that is in North Carolina in storage will be dealt with next month. I am trying to avoid thinking about it.)
My body is not happy. I slept eight hours last night without moving. I don't think I have done that since I was a teenager. Of course, when I was a teenager I would wake up refreshed and ready to jump out of bed. This morning my body rebelled big time from that lack of movement. I think I must have slept with my neck in a corkscrew because I had a headache that didn't want to quit.
And speaking of aging things, why is it that electronics know when they are reaching their third birthday and begin to cough and gasp? My computer and printer decided to break up last week.
Suddenly their relationship came to a shrieking halt. They literally turned their backs on each other, and it was heartbreaking. I had to use my counseling skills, big time, for four hours to save the relationship, but I'm worried it might not last. I think they should be paying me for my skills, but I'm afraid I am the one who will shortly be forking over the big bucks.
Keep your fingers and toes crossed for me. I am bidding on a chintz settee (don't you love that word) on a local online auction. It will be perfect for the English country cottage decor I have planned for my new cozy little living room. Since I can't give other bidders the evil eye like I can in person, I am trying to do it virtually. Not sure how well that works.
I'll share full photos of it if I win.
The weather is perfect here, so I am going to throw open the windows and get busy.
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend.
