50 States- Quilter Girl Weighs In

My turn to write the blog today.  This is Sherri, aka Quilter Girl.  I realized through this moving process how different Kevin and I are.  My idea of getting ready to pack the house up is to finish my projects, use up all the food in the fridge and pantry then pack.  Then there will be less to pack.  Kevin started stressing about packing the first of April and I wouldn’t have started until yesterday.  Neither of us were right, nor were we wrong.  However we drove each other crazy.

8 Days- And an Invite

Eight days. After a vision, a dream that birthed 42 years ago, 8 short days remain to pack up and move. Because of the writer’s conference, I haven’t done anything to move the trip forward for two plus days.

And yet… I’m not stressed. Really. We’ll get it. A couple trips tomorrow, a few on Monday through Wednesday and the movers on Thursday, and Friday is cleaning day. Shoot. No problem. Time with the kids on Saturday, and the big party on Sunday.

Speaking of party:

50 States- More Chores!

I stared in horror at my hands. Attempting to rinse out a paintbrush with warm water, I discovered that ‘Kilz’ is mineral based and gets clean with paint thinner! The paint thinner that I packed and stored yesterday.

As the white goo coagulated on my stainless steel sink (and my hands), I ran to Lowe’s for some fresh paint thinner.

When you’re neck deep in alligators, it’s hard to remember your goal was to drain the swamp.

50 States- Hilary Clinton Was Right!

Yes, my liberal left wing friends, I’m giving it up to the Secretary of State. It does take a village! She wrote a book about ‘It takes a village’ to raise a kid. But I’m saying it takes a village to go on a trip around the country. Yes, you don’t just throw a leg over the bike and take off. You could, but imagine the mess when you returned! Perhaps you could throw a leg over and never come back.  Well we’re not doing that.

50 States Shoveling Fines- Huh?

I shoveled, spread and compacted ‘Pink Fines’ today. How does that advance the ’50 States in 50 Weeks’ preparation?

Actually, it does advance the cause. I own a vacant lot with a garage (I know, weird) and will use it to store my car and truck. The short driveway however was a four- wheel drive affair. Getting the car into the building would be impossible. Hence, the grading.  But it sure didn’t look appropriate. We should be packing!

Running Mate

“Are you sure you want to spend an entire year with your wife?”  People have asked me this politely. Some have been more blunt, like, “Are you crazy?” Generally, those marriages are… ahem- not so good, and they are projecting. What they don’t understand is that I’m not taking just my wife with me.

50 States Last Supper and Moving
Wednesday, 25 April 2012 20:24

Last night our good friends Keith and Melody had us over for the Last Supper. And brace yourself: She took our plants. Incredible. Those plants will actually live and perhaps even thrive.  While the plants live under our care, it can’t be credited with much more than survival. I think the plants got a much better deal than the dog. I just hope none of the plants try to blog. Too weird.
