Still unpacking

I have been busy. I closed on my Detroit-area house 2 days ago, and I am moved into my Saginaw house, but there are still boxes everywhere, and no washer-dryer yet. I am having a hard time finding time to look at appliances, and an even harder time making a decision! I don't have any curtains yet, but my grandchildren decorated my windows as a lovely substitute. I need to get the chimney cleaned, too, so that I can have chestnuts roasting on an open fire next month, lol.

I am home (it still sounds funny to me to call this place home) most days of the week, but drive down to Detroit to volunteer in my sister's office two days a week. The nicest thing about that is that I get to have dinner with Dr. Cranky, and see my sister.

In a moment of obvious disorientation, I told my brother and sister that I'd have Thanksgiving in my new house. I hope I can find the pots and pans by then.

And just about a week later, I have two more milestones to look forward to -- a major birthday, and a trip to Sanibel. I hope some of my bloggie friends will be available to crawl one of the first 2 Sundays in December!
