I am around

Pull up a chair and grab a cup of Java for a cozy chat about what's on your mind and what's happening in your neck of the woods. This is a strictly for fun non-gardening topics.

I am around

Postby Koot » Nov 29, 2008 1:47 am

Well
Week 7, the smile is glued on my face, I am at my breaking point.......
The furniture arrived, but it is a nightmare, her house was packed and this is a trailer. Lord the stuff she has for that kitchen with no where to put it. Thank God for my vitamin"B" shots ( once a week instead of once a month)

Of course everthing is important!
Today I unpacked 2 wardrobe boxes (up to my chin) full of craft supplies and wool. She hasn't used any of it in 3 years but it made it to the trailer. I am talking 6 garbage full and then she thinks she has a box of material in the front room.
I want her in her trailer and I am looking at another week, I might just lose it.
I know it is hard on her, but it is hard on me too. I have bitten my tongue so my times it is a wonder any of it is left.
So like I said...........
I am still around.

I feel for you Koot, I would have lasted hours, certainly not weeks.

Oh Koot...I feel for you, I really do.

Could I pls send your post on to my kids so they will know what they are in for, or should I just let them be surprised? I've already been thru the various wools...several boxes and cupboards of materials to go thru...one of these days...and hah hah hah on all of the kitchen stuffs and the OTHER crafts!

I too am sending you big hugs...I would not have made it this far, believe me.

Well Liz, we are the same age. Just wondering about our prospects in a trailer.

My plan, as if I will have control of it, is that I will remain here on the property I have worked so hard to develop until the end.

I have great sympathy for both the MIL & our Libby.

Ron, never ever thought I would leave the farm except in a box ...and now I am finding HERE too big, stairs too much...I kinda long for a smallish trailer, big enough for me and two dogs - it would be nice if Jim lived right next door! I really do not want to ever have to live with any of our kids, beloved as they are. It would kill me to have someone always nattering at me, always checking on me, always around.

I wish YOU best of luck.
