WHEN LIFE HANDS YOU LEMONS....

....MAKE A SOUR FACE

 

 

I thought with the closing and the joy of moving back to the South...well, still technically a Hoosier, but only by one mile, things would be on the total upswing.

Wrong.

Someone is angry with me, and that makes me clean. Or drink. In this case, clean and drink. And thank God for small favors, one of the two appraisers for the house in Indiana came this afternoon while I was in the middle of a Pina Colada cleaning frenzy.

I think it went okay. I conveniently stood the the left of the missing pantry doors to draw his eyes away from the gaping hole. It worked. He remarked how beautiful the cupboards looked considering they are original. "A German Sister-in-Law and lemon oil. She convinced me of the necessity of rubbing them down yearly...it works!"

He took video. God, I hope some sharp eye doesn't notice the pantry. He went out into the back yard and included the landscaping and beautiful flower beds. One of the neighbors came over and put in a good word about the neighborhood.

Tomorrow the movers come to take us away. Forever.

So final, isn't it. Forever.

For me....it's the finality of it that's so damned scary.

Good luck tomorrow.

Good luck with your move.  I get all nerved up and teary at the thought of 'good bye'.  It doesn't even have to be good bye to a person.  I'm such a dolt.

    Been a while since I've visited. It seems you had just moved to Indiana not long ago. Can't blame you for wanting to go home. Good luck with the move.

remember, the only difference between an ordeal and and adventure is attitude.
Pass the Pina Coladas and stay in front of that pantry!
I cant wait to hear what happens next!
