    My goodness. Never a dull moment around your place, is there? It must be a relief when it happens. Stage manager sounds like fun.

    And yes, I believe your FIL. And your MIL. I suspect I will be a little like them, if I'm not already. We tend to downplay discomfort and keep soldiering on, to the point where it can get ridiculous.

    Friday
    Morning: I made a trip to see my chiropractor. She fixed me up good
    I also found the MOST EXCELLENT chocolate!! They roast, grind and make it right in the shop!!
    I'm never buying chocolate anywhere else!!!
    Afternoon: I took Lily back to the vet for her ear checkup and a blood draw.
    She did an EXCELLENT job of staying easy. No muzzle required!
    Evening: We went to a friend's pig roast LOTSA pork!! and wine...

    Saturday.
    Was the auction sale at our new house. I bought back a few items to go in the house
    I missed a couple of items, but spent about $500 and dank some wine.

    Sunday
    Firemen's Breakfast at the firehall. Boxed scrambled eggs, sausage, bacon, pancakes (I didn't have any)
    Meh
    Packed. Took a couple loads of stuff over to the new house. Packed some more.

    You've been rather busy! I'm guessing there is more packing going on, I can't imagine having to do that myself. Our moves are covered by work, so the packers come in for 2 days and pack the entire house, then a full day to load the truck, and that's it. Getting ready for that is enough for me!

    Do tell more about that chocolate you found.

    TONS of packing! Movers. Nice. But I'm not sure how I'd feel about someone packing up my 'stuff'. Our friends are going to help us on 'moving day' to move the big things.

    The chocolate. Wow.
    Habitual Chocolate
    It makes anything else I've bought taste like chalk.
    They have everything from tiny little truffles to huge slabs of dark chocolate. Labeled by country and %

    PrimalCon New York
    Monday
    Evidently 5 hours of painting is too much for my back At about 4pm it started seizing up
    I had to go out and work at the booth from 5-8. I dropped a few things on the floor. They stayed there until XCollege Son came to pick me up. I couldn't even lean out of the truck to pull the door shut

    I don't want to talk about what I ate while I was out there.
    It's a very good thing I don't have to work there every day...I would weigh Q

    Tuesday
    Another trip into London to visit the chiropractor and the chocolate store I found a new battery for XCollege Son's old phone and reactivated it for him (Until he saves enough $ for an iPhone again) I bought another Yoga Rat towel from Home Sense. I love these towels! They are so thin but SO absorbent! I bought one last week and it's the only towel I want to use! I stopped at a storage solutions store and they could build me a closet system for only $550!! Yikes! I'll build my own. (Well, my Farmer will build me one) I picked up a 2nd pail of paint and some electrical boxes.

    After supper we went over to the new house. I painted some wood boards (for trim) and my Farmer put in some extra outlets and a light for my closet. By the time I'd finished the trim, my back was DONE. SO much for the chiro trip...well, at least I got some chocolate

    Today turned into an IF day. I thought I'd wait till I was hungry to eat. I "broke my fast" at 5. Even with chocolate in my purse!!
