Moving Update…

Almost there!  I signed the paperwork at my lawyer’s office yesterday and have a dumpster in the driveway to get rid of old pieces of drywall and flooring, etc. that were in the garage and basement.  Mostly boxes and furniture for storage remain.

Had the radon levels tested and mitigated as they were a little high and it’s a necessary fix in my part of the country.  At least I was prepared for the expense.  Have to move the rest of my lamps and electronics today and tomorrow and then the movers come on Saturday!

I sold my beautiful sunroom furniture to a lovely couple after advertising on Marketplace and some neighborhood garage sale sites.  It made me happy to see them take it as it was way too large for me to put on a patio somewhere – and the chances of having another sunroom are slim!

What did make me cry, though, was throwing out some Blue Bunny ice cream cones from the freezer that hubby used to love… the sadness hits me at the most unexpected moments.

Or maybe I’m a little stressed out from all the running back and forth between two houses.  I’ll be glad when this finally closes!

  1. I dare say the ice cream cones were not the only thing to jolt your tear ducts while you were sorting through everything Diane. Nearly done now. Love and hugs, and hope everything goes well for the rest of the move.


  2. You’re almost there. It’s obviously and understandably a difficult time. Praying for you .🙏🏻


  3. A very emotional time, another parting, another separation. Of course it’s difficult.
    God bless you. The new chapter opening up. I can’t imagine. You are in my prayers.


  4. I can imagine how hard this all is. I can’t begin to tell you how sorry I am that you’re having to do this all. The story about the Blue Bell ice cream is true though. I think you’ve been around my place long enough to have recalled our bobby pin stories. Still find them to this day. If you’re lucky, you’ll get those reminders until the moment you’re reunited. Yeah, they’ll be sad. But, you’ll then smile about the memory of him. If you need an ear, you know where to find me. 😊


  5. Beat of luck with all of your transitions


  6. Those little “grief bombs” as I call them are everywhere 🙂
    They turn up in a memory or an object out of nowhere it seems.
    Little connectors to our loved ones.


  7. Oh my gosh, I missed something…

  8. Grief is a powerful emotion and it sneaks up on you when you least expect it. But hey, you had a major love so it’s to be expected. Glad things are moving along for you!

    1. Thanks, Christy. Most of the time I’m doing well, but Father’s Day was tough, especially on my boys, and then closing on the house the very next day. Hope all is going well for you!
