That's what it felt like when I received Mary Lamin. Why? I've seen the design before and liked it, contemplated purchasing, forgot about it, waited to include it on a larger order, forgot about it, then it hit me. I need it I want it. Now. What up with that? Then I opened the envelope and fell in love. Seeing a chart in person is a luxury many of us do not have and no matter how good something looks online, it's always better than expected when the mail comes. A tough decision will be coming, whether she or Mary Spinney will be the next project. Harriet Hazlin did not arrive and is on backorder.
This afternoon the sun is shining and I'm going for my injections again. Every two weeks. It will be a nice ride (I'm making Carole take me) taking the older road along farms and foliage.
Many of you recommended throwing stuff out the window, but her cape cod has windows only in the back, directly above a triple picture window, in front of which she sits. Can't get out the door either without passing her. I'm keeping some family items and her fancy glassware, utilitarian items, wearable coats and such, but after all is
fought and won said and done, I am getting estimates from companies for the cleaning. So far, two agencies said they will not move furniture and will not rinse walls after washing (she has an oil furnace). I'm still making calls. Her son is worse than she is and would keep everything because someone may be able to use it one day. He has had ADHD since childhood and goes from one thing to another without completion - I would get NOTHING done! His son's girlfriend has a little boy who has been getting disability checks since he was three years old for being "hyper". No medications. Smart kid. He told me he is disabled and gets $650 a month for it until he's "legal", plus free "tooters" and "rappers" if he wants them. I assumed he meant tutors, and wrap arounds but that's not how he spells them .. he turned five last spring. Compared to how Carole's son was growing up, this disabled kid is no where near hyper, distracted, unfocused, forgetful, learning deficient, overactive, uncontrollable, emotional, reckless. Chris was. He's better as an adult, but still distracted and lacks focus. Not the best helper!
Enjoy your weekend.
Thanks for visiting.
