Wednesday What?

Where did the week go? The kids moved out yesterday, surprise. We didn't know she was moving out until she started packing. She said she's be ou be the 15th of Feb and it's still January. That's ok any time was fine.

 I'm back to living with my husband which in the past 25 years has been very rare. I think we had a few years when we first moved to MS and left the gorgeous beaches of Santa Cruz California. Then some of the kids followed us out here. Some left and more came, and those left again, and I wonder why I get easily confused? Nah, I KNOW my family tree is full of nuts. Nuts that had little acorns or something like that.

This morning the neighborhood kids were ringing the bell looking for the kids to catch the bus. It was 6:30 am. The dogs went berserk. Barking echoed in the hallway at ear piercing decibels. I knew I would not be going back to sleep. Up to stumble for the coffee pot. Let the dogs out and speak a word to the cats, who are wondering what happened to their cozy digs.  The kids will be back for the cats soon. They are cat people. The cats are not dog cats, the cats like hanging out with the kids and no dogs allowed. Cat's are like that.

My family will be my two dogs and my husband, what a deal.

You should see my kitchen cabinets. I unloaded a whole truck load of stuff. A set of dishes and extra pots and pans etc...etc...etc... and you know what? I spread out what was left and had just the right amount. Do you accumulate stuff you don't need? I just about stocked her kitchen with everything she'll need as far as dishes and cookware. I didn't have a set of silverware but that's because I gave her that in Santa Cruz and her ex's rotten sister never shipped it. Jennifer gave her all her stuff and asked her to ship a few boxes which she couldn't be bothered to do. Oh well, some people have no conscience.

The apartment is nice. They have 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms and after living in one bedroom with one bathroom it must feel like a palace! They have a fireplace which will be really nice in the winter. Brief as our winter is. Our winter is California perfect weather. This time of year makes me want to pack up and go back like no other time of year. I am so hot natured that I can sweat in 57 degrees. Can you imagine how miserable I get when it's 97degrees? I'm not even talking about humidity. The nice thing about humidity is it moisturizes your skin and keeps you looking young. What am I talking about?

Am I rambling or what?

Well, what are you still doing here? What did you expect when the dawgs were barking to beat the band at 6 in the morning? Did you think there would be substance and wit? Are you serious?
My brain hasn't even entered my body yet.

I need more coffee.
You have a cup too and we will both wake up.

Thanks, but it's nearly 4 pm here and now, and I dare not drink any more coffee! Keeps me awake at night. When the heck did that start happening? Maybe I should move out of my place so I can get rid of some stuff from my own cupboards? New beginnings for you all ... cool!

It must seem a little quiet around you house but I bet you will enjoy having things back to just the two of you and the dogs. One thing we can always count on is that things will change.

awww, another new chapter for you!
And did you seriously just ask if I have stuff I don't need? Have you seen Hoarders? ;-)

Ross said...

I still have about fifteen years before I get to the point where it's just my wife and I!! So I'll be needing lots of coffee for those early school mornings, and the late nights where they don't come home until 2am!!

Kathy said...

HI! I love your rambling! I keep leaving messages but for some reason they don't 'stick'... crazy back-woods internet. I hope you both are enjoying some new 'honeymoon' time.

Kat said...

Wow. Big changes ahead. But lovely.
I have so much stuff I don't need. And after we moved into this house I swore that wouldn't happen. Grrrr.
Hope you caught up on your sleep by now!

Kathy said...

Thinking about you! Waiting for more posts....... I enjoy hearing how you are.

Life got quiet after my kids moved out. It's noisy once again. Farm animals, you know, but more interesting than quiet.
