i have been working so hard…. making lists… ha! lists and lists and lists…

there is so much to do for this big move. i have an itinerary pretty much drawn up. you see, it’s going to take about 3 trips back & forth to get all the man-toys moved. the packing is minor when considering the actual move itself. eek!

but it will happen, and it will work, and it will be good. this time next month it will all be done and i will have things unpacked and house set up. that’s my bright shiny light at the end of this tunnel… 30 days from now this will be a thing of our past… until we have to do it again ha!

in my previous gypsy life, everything i owned would fit in my car. moving was easy. box it up, toss it in, drive away.


somehow the other night coach & i got on to the topic of hangers… not clothes hangers… not plane hangers… we were talking about lady hangers. you know, elongated blessings. the gist of it was that i am very grateful that, considering my abundant blessings, my  hangers are not really so bad… i figured at this age it would’ve been awful. but then i figured out why i’ve been so fortunate.

tummy #2… my rubenesque stature is providing some extra support… sort of a shelf for the blessings to rest on. ha! another advantage to being, um, not skinny. AND! i have very few wrinkles… who needs wrinkler filler injection junk when i have my own natural padding to keep the lines all filled in?

ah, the late night fun… lying in bed and thinking of all the good fortune i’ve had… finding the silver linings in those things that i used to beat myself up about.

and the bonus – it makes coach just sort of shake his head and laugh.

Being an adult is like looking both ways before you cross the street and then getting hit by an airplane.

  1. Ha! I have a shelf as well. I am not too fond of it but babies usually love me as I am soft and pillowy. 🙂

  2. Love it. I am an economy sized woman myself. And Maxine is one of my heroes. Thank you for this – big smiles never go astray.

  3. I love your post!! LOL!! I have my own wrinkle filler too!!! 🙂

  4. You crack me up! Honestly, what goes on in that head of yours? I know the packing will tire you out, but you have the right idea — look at the reward at the end! Wish I lived closer to lend a hand!

    • ha! my mind is a bit messy…. i am just glad i have had enough restraint to not write about some of the other things that have run through my mind… mostly when i’m really tired or very stressed out LOL

      oh the packing… and the moving… oh… oh
