      was the day Marty McFly arrived in the "future"

      Think about that...

      ~~~~~

      My Daughter and I went for a 2nd tour of our new house. We took measurements. I have SO MANY ideas in my head now
      The closet in my bedroom is 4'x8'.
      Imagine that.

      ~~~~

      A good friend of mine shared his packing "system" with me when I was feeling overwhelmed.

      You need a binder, a pen, a marker and boxes.
      You number each room in your new house. eg: Kitchen is 100, living room is 200, etc.
      You then pack and each box for the kitchen is labeled 101, 102, etc
      In the binder, you write a list of the items in box 101, 102 (as detailed as you wish)
      Before you move, put up a sign at each room (100-199 for kitchen)
      Movers put boxes in appropriate rooms.

      If you need something, consult the binder to find it.

      I shall try this

      ~~~~~

      Of course he also told me I have to purge.

      I suck at purging...

      ~~~~

      I was awake until WAY past 2:30 am. My mind was full of decorating/arranging ideas.

      • Thursday

        I went into the VW dealership today and paid off my car loan!!!
        $6,421.65

        It felt AWESOME!!!

        Then my daughter and I went shopping

        I bought seat covers for my beetle. The seats are leather and they get quite HOT in the sun. I keep two small fleece blankets in the car and we put them on the seats when we get out to shade them. We will try the covers instead.

        I returned a shirt I bought 29 days ago and hadn't worn yet.

        I bought new collars for the Butterflies.

        New brown flipflops.

        And a few other (boring) things.

        Mall salad for lunch.
        Wine, BBQ chicken, fresh yellow beans and zucchini from the garden, ice cream and blueberries for supper.

        • Friday

          I made a quick trip back into London to do a couple returns/exchanges.
          The rest of the afternoon was spent on the deck with my Farmer, a bottle of blueberry vodka, club soda, and limes
          We had yellow beans, zucchini and kolrabi from our garden and we BBQ'd perch on a cast iron grill.

          University Son came home.

          • Saturday

            We worked on the trailer for a while and then we went to a friend's father's memorial BBQ and bonfire party.

            My friend's dad died in the winter, but he'd wanted a big party instead of a funeral. So his family threw him a big party! There was easily over 200 people there. And 7 trailers. They live on a 100 acres of bush and they had trails all through it. We rode around on a tour of the bush. Supper was roast beef (tons) and fresh caught pickerel with french fries and salads,, with ice cream for dessert.

            I drank a bottle of rose wine and some blueberry vodka with San Pellegrino and lime juice. My Farmer was silly drunk

            Late in the evening, around midnight?, an ex-friend (someone who had stopped talking to me 3 years ago) came and sat down beside me. She had been talking to my Farmer and he told her to come talk to me. She was quite drunk, but she said she missed me and wanted to know if we could be friends again. I said it would take some time.

            We shall see. I will go back into it s l o w l y. I won't be hurt again. But it is time. 3 years is a long time. Of course she still doesn't talk to my other 4 best friends (we used to be a group of 6) I am not looking forward to telling them we talked. . .


            Life was "smooth" in our group after she left. But I never felt "right" about things that happened.


            I am SO tired of high school games.

            • Sunday

              Slow day.
              BIG thunderstorms!
              They freaked Lily out, poor baby

              Foods
              BAS
              coconut water
              Prime rib, sweet potato, carrot, avocado

              After supper I went out to the booth and drew a up a large "map" of the trailer sites for my dad. He's going to get it laminated and use a white marker to keep track of campers names. I also made a 8.5 x 11 version for him to photocopy. This took me about 3 hours. I ate gummy worms and had an ice cream while I was there.

              University Son went back to Guelph while I was at the booth.

                    idk, packing the trailer, laundry, stuff like that
                    It was HOT
                    I stayed up until 4am reading a book!

                    Tuesday
                    I was up at 9! Pretty good, considering...
                    Groceries, packing the trailer, laundry
                    Another REALLY hot day

                    Wednesday
                    More packing. I'm leaving for camping tonight and won't be back near an internet connection till Sunday!
                    It's our annual Bad Campers weekend. I decided to start my weekend early
                    There will be all kinds of "non primal" activities

                    Take care everyone and play nice

                      • Lots and lots of fun!

                        And some DRAMA!

                        But I'm not sure when I'll have time to describe it, we leave for the East Coast on Thursday and I've been cleaning and packing like a CRAZY woman!

                        Of course I've packed WAY too many clothes
                        But you knew I would...

                        I will try to get back on here before we leave. I haven't been able to read ANYONE's journals, not even Gay Panda's!!
                        I'm SO far behind...

                        • Welcome back, Winencandy, for a brief moment! GayPanda has been rather sedate, so you can catch up quickly. (NaNoWriMo) has a lot to answer for.
