I got my 300th follower today! Pretty exciting! I know it’s not a lot but it’s a lot to me! So thank you Alexis Chateau! For being my 300th follower! Awesome!
And it was especially welcome news today, because I have what I think is going to be a major problem with my house. The hot water tank seems to be leaking onto the floor. My inspection is tomorrow. I have a sinking feel I am going to have to buy a new one. Luckily it’s a hot water storage tank, not a hot water heater. It’s not leaking a lot, but it is leaking.
After this inspection stuff is over, I’m going to go full tilt boogie into sorting stuff out for moving. I think I’ll go at it one room at a time. Just sorting, and throwing stuff out. If I bring home some boxes, I can start packing as I sort. The storage area of the basement will be hard, lots of stuff there. Then the kitchen. I have to get some stuff up for sale on Craig’s List or just put it out on FB. The couches in my son’s room, the spare washer and dryer, the microwave, my deck furniture..
I made blueberry muffins from scratch this morning. Mmmm. Vacuumed, cleaned my son’s bathroom, ran an errand, cleaned up the water in the basement a few times, washed and folded laundry, read for a little while, talked to two of my best friends for an hour or so on the phone. Made a nice dinner for myself. So it was a good productive day. Would have been relaxing if it weren’t for the water in the basement.
It’s been unbelievably hot lately. We have already equaled the years average number of days of 90, and it’s supposed to get hotter this week. My electric bill is going to be atrocious. It was $285 for the last month. This house is too big…..Hopefully, the bill in FL will be 1/3 of that.
I guess things are moving along as well as can be expected. I have been drinking way too much lately, meaning, having a glass of wine every night, and more than one on the weekend. So tonight I decided not to, not to have any. I’ve been eating irregularly, having my wine…I need to get myself back on track or I will never get all this done. It sucks to be alone and doing all these major changes. But it would suck more not to do them. It will all be fine. 10 weeks from now I’ll be there, in my new house, starting my new life. Just gotta get through this stuff first.
Moving forward, one step at a time.
Love and light.
