"Giff mee yourrr FUR-nicherrr! Giff mee your MAIMaries! I VANT yourrrr SHTUFF!"

Tonight the owners of the secondary auction house are coming over to see what's left for them to take.

There's a significant amount in the two barns, but the main house is going to be an issue. They are going to want to pull things out of there now, whereas there are only a few things that I can allow them to take. I need for them to wait until after I'm done moving, then come by and pick up whatever is left behind. I won't know until I get in to the new house whether some of the furniture is coming with me or not.

There's a large green icebox in the kitchen that I can't use, but I still don't want them to take it now. It would be too disruptive, the whole kitchen would have to be moved, and besides which, my cats like to jump up there to look out the window. Until we're gone, it stays.

For my part, I am just GOD damn sick of strangers traipsing through my house, looking at everything.

In a seemingly-unrelated matter, it comes as a surprise to discover that I must be weather-sensitive. All it takes is one dismal, dreary day, and the black dog is once again on my doorstep.

Now I want to say a giant "thank you" to all of you. I check the stats every day, so I know you're out there, some of you from as far away as Denmark, Russia and Japan. I don't know why you're reading this drivel, but you are. And that means something to me. The only time that I don't feel completely alone is when I'm working on this crazy blog.

  1. We're here more often than you know...and you are most certainly not alone. Looking forward to a moving in celebration.

  2. about the black dog and the weather--I'm pretty sure as we get older, more of us suffer from Seasonal Affective Disorder. I know it's true for me. I mean, things aren't significantly worse than before, but as soon as November--or sometimes October--rolls around, it sure seems that way. I'm trying one of those lights to treat it--I'll let you know how it goes! And just tell the auction folks to go away until you call them to come back! take care-Donna G

  3. Nice to see pieces of the puzzle fall in place but still leaving room to create and write.
