As we are prepping for a move to the new home, you may see more snips and snaps instead of full length essays. The crazy squirrel inside my head refuses to stay focused.
Like a leper – That should be a new Madonna song. This week I had to check bank balances for our upcoming home purchase. I had a good idea of our balances but I needed someone else, preferably from our credit union, to confirm it. I had to call for an appointment. I’m good with that. When I got there, I had to call and say I was in the parking lot. Someone came out. I did banking business standing outside in the cold with nothing to write on while cars were zipping by. I had no idea they would not let anyone in. My regular bank limits the number of people but you can go inside and sit with a person. Another sign of the times I won’t miss.
Priorities – Yesterday I went to the home we are buying. I parked in front and pulled out my Starbucks app to see which store was closest. The one I’m using now will still be the closest but I will be a mile farther. Somehow that make me feel better knowing that I could continue my insane routine of getting a mocha every day.
One small project – A realtor came in yesterday for the first go through. I asked if there is anything I should do to make the property better for a sale. She suggested I remove some wallpaper in the kitchen. I’m one of those old-timers who likes wallpaper (no teapots or roosters!) especially in a kitchen with white cabinets and a hardwood floor. I realize it’s not in vogue now although “they say” it’s coming back. Removing it is not a big project. It’s only one wall. She also suggested I downsize the cat stuff. What? Are three cat trees too many? How do I explain to them that they cannot have beds in every room? It’s only temporary. I have no idea how to explain that the new house has no screened porch for them. Moving is hard.
