Here is your rabbit reminder for July 1. It is a short one because I am taking just a quick break from all the chaos here right now. I can't really concentrate on the blog, but I didn't want to run the risk of so many of you not remembering your rabbits!
I am distracted because as many of you know, I am in the process of packing up our home in Tennessee as we prepare to move to Naples, FL.
And when we can be together again in the same state!
Although the movers are packing for us, I am hoping they'll just have to pack up the kitchen and maybe some of the stuff we have on shelves in the garage. I can leave clothes in the bureaus because they just shrink wrap the whole thing. It's very cool. But I have some personal things like jewelry, etc. that I want to pack for myself in the bedroom. As I write this, it's almost like I am making a to-do list, so please indulge me while I think out loud. Let's see...we have most of the guest rooms all done and there isn't much to do with the living room. I have to make sure my electronics are done right when we disconnect the TVs and computers, but that's the last thing we'll do when the movers arrive on Saturday. I have to have my computer until the last minute!
|Not THIS kind of hutch!|
I have one and a half bathroom done and one to go. I have half of the dining room packed. But the clock is ticking.
For example, I started packing the guest room bathroom and that made me start thinking about the cleaning supplies I'd need to keep out and not pack. When I saw the toilet bowl cleaner in that first bathroom, instead of just making a mental note about it, I went off and checked for bowl cleaner in the other bathrooms and decided to clean all the toilets in the house, ending up in a different bathroom, packing up toiletries that I saw when I was in there cleaning the toilet.
It's all very complex neurological stuff, I think. Or, could we be witnessing the breakdown of a middle aged woman's brain? Put in the way that my 5 year old granddaughter replies to questions: 'Why, yes. Yes we could be witnessing the breakdown of a middle aged woman's brain.' But, I have a feeling it's just a temporary condition. At least I certainly hope so.
Ed went to work yesterday for the first time since I had returned from the Cape on Saturday. Being alone in the house I can go at my own pace today, and hopefully just keep plowing through it all. While Ed was here at the house packing I kept finding myself taking naps. I think I was hoping I'd wake up and elves would come in to the house while I was sleeping and finish the job. That elf thing has been a recurring fantasy of mine ever since I was a little girl and had to clean my room. I think it was an idea I took from that fairy tale The Elves and the Shoemaker.
Ed has kind of been my hero in all of this, truly. A real Crusader Rabbit.
Well, back to work for me now. The movers will be here in less than 48 hours. Yikes! Just in case I don't remember, can I ask a few of you to remember to say MY rabbits for ME?
I'd be very grateful!
Happy Fourth of July everyone. Have a safe and fun holiday weekend!
