Why is that roach clip on your coffee table?

This was me this weekend....


Really, Hubby would have let me spend the weekend this way, but he has been in high gear packing for our move this Thursday and I could not bring myself to just sit and watch him do all the work. So sad, I know.

So, we spent the weekend disassembling and dusting and cleaning and vacuuming and packing. I am so TIRED!!! So, I relaxed this morning by going to have my well woman exam. WooHoo!

On Saturday, we loaded up all our food from the large freezer and I carried it to my girlfriend's house to vacation in her freezer until we are moved in to our new place. I am so lucky to have a friend that has a practically empty big freezer in her garage!

After we loaded all the stuff in the freezer, I went in to visit as ordered by Hubby. (I am so lucky!) While sitting and talking, suddenly I noticed something on her coffee table...

"Why is that roach clip on your coffee table?" I asked.

She started laughing and said it was not a roach clip, but a bracelet buddy. I didn't know such a thing existed so told her I still thought it was a roach clip.

I looked when I got home and there IS such a thing. They look like this:

Who knew? Well, obviously my girlfriend did. LOL!

And just in case you wonder how I even know what a roach clip is, I heard about them once....a long time ago. Yep, that is my story and I am sticking to it.

Our boy is being hailed as a hero!

Well, in our town, anyway.

We knew he was one, but Chance did something Saturday night that not many others would do. I just thought I would share this news story. We are so very proud of him. And grateful that the Lord was watching over him!

I have got to get moving!

For some reason, our silly apartment is not packing itself! I just don't get it.

And Hubby had told me he would do ALL the packing for or move and guess what? He has not packed a single box. Oh, some boxes are packed, but I did them.

We HAVE done a lot of sorting and tossing and continue to sort and toss, so I guess once stuff is sorted and pared down, the packing part won't take as long. And we DO have 3 weeks to pack as we decided to move the last Thursday of the month. Our apt manager told us we could have the apartment sooner at no charge, but Hubby thinks we can go ahead a wait until the last week. Maybe he figures he will get motivated and get us packed up by then.

No, I am not really expecting him to do it all himself.

Today, we are waiting to hear from a couple of my girlfriend's boys as Hubby decided we would get rid of his weight bench and they were ecstatic when I asked if they would want it. Once they come get it, we will have more room to stack boxes and maybe it will be easier to get motivated to pack boxes.

We shall see.

I also have to get motivated to list our aquarium for sale or giveaway. We have a 20 gallon that we have had for years, but our new apartment has a fireplace on the wall that currently has our aquarium on it. LOL! The floor plan is like ours, only flipped and with a fireplace. So, I figured I would give the aquarium away, but know no one that wants one. So I think I will list it on a Garage Sale page for my area that is on Facebook. I may list it for $25 or $50 and just give it to anyone that is interested. I was afraid that if I listed it for free I might have too many responses to deal with.

I used to list free stuff on Freecycle, but my town's freecycle site is really inactive. I may check out the ones for other local communities, as I would just as soon give it away. Of course, I will have to drain it and rehome the 6 remaining fish we have. But it has been an nice hobby to have, so I won't complain about rehoming it.

Well, I guess I will get up and do something.

Hope everyone is having great weekend!

Performing my civic duty.

Guess where I am?

I am performing my civic duty ny sitting in the jury room waiting to see if I will be picked to serve on a jury.

This is only the second jury summons I have ever received. Obviously, my county has a big jury pool. I didn't get on a jury last time. Maybe I will today. That would drive my boss crazy! LOL!

Happy Thursday!
