The kids grandma is sick. Not my mom, their other grandma. She went to the doctor and he wanted her to go to the hospital. She said no. She is ninety years old and still gets around good, except for the cold. She asked if Maggie could come live with her for a while. Maggie said yes right away. I thought that she would think about it for a while. Maggie has dropped out of college and has put an application in at the pet store but they haven’t called her. She will need to put in a lot of applications before she leaves because Grandma doesn’t have internet. When she said yes I felt so sad. I know that she will be a good help and she is ready to go, but I miss her already. It is suddenly so empty here. All my years of thinking about what hobbies I would like after they are gone doesn’t fill up the quiet, and she hasn’t even left yet. I asked Maggie to start filling out applications. She looked at her e-mail first to see if the pet store had emailed. They hadn’t. She is filling out applications now. She needs a phone so that we can keep in touch with her.
Mom bought a new house. She likes to buy houses that need work and fix them up and sell them. She says that she is getting older and that this may be the last house that she buys. She got the keys for this new house last Wednesday and the moving van comes on this next Tuesday. There are a lot of things that she takes over in her car. She has a lot of glass, pictures, potted plants, some statues, coo coo clocks…we take these things over in our cars. She could have the movers move them, but she doesn’t like to pay them for the extra time that it would take. This new house is nice. It doesn’t need a lot of work. It needs a new roof and the inside needs painted. Mom seems very content at the new place.
William has had a lot of interviews. He is even shaving for interviews. He normally will only shave once a month so this is a big deal. None of the companies that he has interviewed with have called back for a second interview. William wants to get a job and move out into an apartment. Then maybe he will go back to school.
written 9/18/11 – William cut the grass today. William doesn’t go outside on his own, but once I get him outside, he is one that won’t come back in. I guess he is just happy wherever he is.
It was warm today. We went for a walk without a jacket.The grass in peoples yards had just been cut. There was still grass clippings lying in the rows. I like the smell of freshly cut grass
This week should be easier. We are getting William’s allergy shot on Tuesday instead of Monday. That means that we will have Monday evening off. When William started getting allergy shots, he was allergic to everything. They have been giving him shots to build up his immune system on two or three areas at a time. His breathing has improved, and he is able to sleep through the night without needing his inhaler.
My next project needs to be cleaning out the basement. When we were going to move a year or two ago, I packed up half of the house…half of the towels, half of the sheets, etc… and put everything into storage to make the house look less full. When the house didn’t sell we brought everything back and put it in the basement. It all needs to be unpacked. If I could sort out one box a night it would help. I really don’t want to move all of this when we do move. There are not enough lights in the basement, that’s why I don’t go down and sort the boxes there. Maybe I could bring one box upstairs each night.
Thanks for stopping by. If you like my blog, please stop in again tomorrow!!!
