The Weekend

Who moves over Memorial Day weekend? Apparently, we do. We didn't even realize it was Memorial Day weekend until a friend so graciously offered to help us move and asked for the details. When I informed her that it would be on Sunday the 30th, she informed me of our poor date choice.


The U-Haul is to be picked up at 9am. I'll drop hubby off at U-Haul and jet over to Einstein's Bagels for one dozen bagels, some nummy spread and a big, big box of to-go coffee. We'll meet at home and the help arrives at 9:30am. {You know that if you ever need help with anything--moving, landscaping, remodeling, etc--you just need to make friends with a firefighter or two and they'll have their whole engine company there to help you out, right? Well, you do now, so get to making firefighter friends!} 

I spent a full day last week cleaning the "new" house. It was sparkly clean when the tenants we had in there moved out, but after sitting vacant for 3 months, it needed a little wipe down. And of course, no one cleans better than *you* clean, so you sorta have to give it your own once over. Especially the soaking tub. {Because you know that on Sunday night, I have made a date with my husband, the soaking tub, bubbles and a glass bottle of wine, right?}

Oh yeah. Good thing those firefighters will be there to help hubby load the U-Haul, because this is how I spent my Saturday morning before Moving Day. In an MRI machine. {If you haven't had an MRI before, your entire body goes into that little, teeny, tiny tube-like, claustrophobic-inducing opening that you see. I learned long ago to keep my eyes closed tight and go to my happy place.} I hurt my knee at the gym last week, jumping. The pain is getting worse every day, though the swelling has subsided. I can't sleep because no matter what position I find comfortable for one second, it becomes immediately uncomfortable. Pillows aren't helping. Needless to say, I'm going to be the Moving Day Supervisor, and not much help.

I hope you all enjoy your long weekend and remember the reason for it--to commemorate those brave souls who died in war, for our freedom.
