Coming up for air!

Ohmygod, I haven't been this tired — bone tired but good tired — in a long time. I've had some tossing-and-turning nights recently, but last night was NOT one of those and I am pretty certain tonight should be a repeat.

It's been taking daughters to school and to the airport — and by that I mean, MOVING OUT and/or AWAY, and so a helluva lot more involved than just driving over with a few boxes and dropping them at the door — farmer market days, knit nights, book club and, today, another rummage sale.

I'm sure you will be AMAZED to learn that neither of these items sold at today's rummage sale. The sentimental packrat in me would love nothing more than to enshrine these — the mug, at least — but the packrat was stifled today. Stifled hard. (We still have a bowl & plate with similar — cuter, even — decoration.) We sold a lot of stuff — BIG stuff, so-happy-to-get-rid-of-this-stuff — but there was plenty left. Again. Of course. We boxed and loaded it up into my car and my husband's, and we drove DIRECTLY to the Goodwill donation center to collect our donation receipts. There's another load to go sometime over the weekend.

GONE, baby. All that stuff is GONE. I can't believe how good it feels.

And my front room. Wow. You should see how much room there is!!

Tomorrow is another farmer market — the Fall Fest version, which means that it is quite a bit bigger, there's a lot of stuff going on, and it's on 'til 2:00 instead of noon. It was chilly today (barely reaching 60F) but will be a bit warmer tomorrow, and it should be a fun day! As tired as I am, I am looking forward to it — and I'm bringing a lot more than just yarn.

Sunday is a birthday party and a football game. Mostly, though, I'm looking forward to sleeping until I naturally wake up on my own.

  1. I’m in awe of your energy and accomplishments! I helped one son move cross-country and had the best intentions to get going on some of my own big projects at home when I returned, but we all know what the road to hell is paved with. Enjoy your well-earned good nights sleep!

  2. You’ve been moving at lightning speed and we won’t even talk about all the worry of kids leaving the nest. It’s good to hear you’re relaxing a little and sleeping better! xoxo
