Saturday musings

T-minus 4 days to the sale. UGH, yeah, tomorrow is going to be a mad combination of loading stuff up to get it out of one room in the house, and then trying to get some of the stuff that’s piled up in the dining room and bedroom into that room for the sale. Said stuff was supposed to be picked up last weekend, but the helper with the truck backed out at the last minute. Then it was supposed to happen today, but other circumstances prevented that. Frankly, I am quite tired of my stress levels being increased by other people’s failure to follow through on what they said they would do! In the end, I am probably going to have to spend 2-3 hours tomorrow, and another 5 or 6 on Monday just arranging and getting stuff put out. I’m betting we’ll need to go over on Wednesday sometime to get the few things out of the shed that need to come out before Thursday morning. I am so ready for it to be Saturday, let’s say around 6:30 pm, so I’ll be on my way home, hopefully with minimal stuff that will have to go into the next garage sale, or on Ebay.

When E&T got home this evening, they had in tow a TINYPUPPY. Yeah, she’s 8-10 weeks old, and cute as all get out. Probably a terrier mix. If anybody needs a tiny puppy, who will likely stay pretty small, email me! She’s really sweet. Well, unless you ask Mei Ling, the sharpei/lab mix who is the alpha dog and has bigger feet than tiny puppy actually is. TP does NOT like Mei Ling one bit! We need a tinypuppy like we need a hole in the head. Our menagerie is plenty thankssomuch.


And if you've got a spare moment, add my friend Mary E. to your prayer and positive energies list.  She's a week post-surgery for a radical mastectomy on her right side. The good news is that only a couple of the lymph nodes are involved, and the tumor is only Stage 2, so with proper treatment and care, it sounds very treatable, possibly curable.  This isn't her first go-round with the big C, which, I'm sure makes it even scarier, not just for her, but also for her children.  The next few weekends her husband is out of town at TRF working their shoppe Hopefully she'll be able to join him perhaps for closing weekend, at least, so they'll be able to celebrate Thanksgiving together.
Oh, and another note, on Wednesday my sister is leaving for San Diego to walk in the Komen 3 Day event with some of her friends.  Her page info is here
And now I think it’s off to bed with me, another long day tomorrow.
