Wheeeewww! What A Long Day!

I'm really tired so this post may not make alot of sense. Richard's grandmother is 88 yrs old and her daughter lives with her but she is 70. Anyway, the house she was living in was in really bad shape and had steps she had to go down to get to the laundry area and she is not steady on her feet so she decided last week she wanted to MOVE! She called and signed the lease for a duplex. She calls last night and says she wants to move TODAY! Needless to say, no one showed up to help except for me and Richard. Of course, they are not able to move furniture and retard Richard decides he is going to move it all in one trip. So he rented a Uhaul and we worked ourselves too death! She has lived there for 18 yrs!!! And let me tell you she had alot of stuff! After we got everything moved over and unloaded, Richard's brother showed up while we were setting her bed back up and had all the furniture moved. So we left and let HIM unpack all the boxes. I am soooooo tired. Well, I'm tired but restless!

As soon as we left there I had to run by the grocery store and stuff. I didn't get to do that yesterday because of Andrew's appointment. On the way to the grocery store I did stop by our new "Fabric Outlet" that opened a few a weeks ago. I didn't really see alot, but maybe I was just tired. But I did get these "lights" I think I will cut them into strips to use for my scrap quilts.

I guess that is all for tonight. If I feel up to it I may try to sew...

God is keeping track, and you definately earned some brownie points today. Bless you and Richard.

Your fabrics are pretty! Have fun with them!

You and Richard are so thoughtful and loving to do this for your relatives.

I like your fabric choices...are the prices pretty reasonable there at that store?

Relax and enjoy the rest of the weekend!

Good job you and Richard worked your butts off but doesn't it feel great? Every time I leave Mom's after packing I'm tired but I feel great for what I'm doing.

I'm sure you are exhausted, but I'm sure his grandma appreciates all the help. Quality time comes in many forms.
