cleaning day

today, mama and her friend go over to the old place to clean it up. dusting, vacuuming, cleaning the stove and oven, rehanging closet doors (don't like those sliders), scrubbing the bathtub, spackling a few holes in the wall. mama and dad will also go to the bank to close their joint account. i guess that's kind of 'cleaning house' too.

here, there are still lots of boxes. there are a few more that get unpacked every day, but it's kind of slow. mama says she doesn't have the energy she used to have for this kind of stuff. she says that it doesn't help that there's so much emotion attached to this move.

for my part, i've been enjoying the peaceful quiet here. mama doesn't watch a lot of tv. ben's become the lap hog and i don't get to sit with her as much as i'd like to, although i do get to sit on her when she reads.

have a good weekend, efurryone. maybe this next week, we'll be ready for pictures!

Hi Suz ... I'm glad that things are still progressing and the end is near. You, Ben2, and your mom will be much happier and healthier once the air is totally clear and things have settled into a sensible, comfortable routine.

Glad to hear that things are moving along, even if it is slower than your mom would like. Things move slower as we get older. That's ok. Hang in there and it will soon be done.

Hopefully soon all will get settled. I bet you'll all be a lot happier once that happens.
