The Happenings

Sorry for being gone so long!
Just want to fill you in on the happenings...

We've been traveling back and forth to MI
on the weekends.
We're packing up the house here in MI.
We have a POD in our driveway which is now half full.
We bought a Bagster for all of our junk.
I hope the POD will be full next Saturday,
I hope the house will be EMPTY next Saturday.
I can call the rug and hardwood floor cleaners
and our realtor to put the place up for lease.
We hear they lease fast,
will that be our luck?
One could hope!

Our daughter is almost totally moved out.
They are slow moving on the process.
We will probably end up having to help them
get the stuff out, so we can proceed.
I know they're busy too,
but I'm on a tight schedule!

We have had many people over for quotes for...
painting the exterior and taking care of the yard and gardens.
We found some amazing deals!

If you live in the metro-Detroit area,
DTE gives you $40 for every working fridge
that you have them haul away.
We will be getting a check for $80.

That's all the house news.
In other news...
Spring is taking it's sweet old time
making a real appearance in MI and Chicago.
I hope to take a Ballet Barre class this week.
We have a new puppy (yes we are crazy right now).
The puppy's name is Fannie Mae.
Here she is...

She is a very good puppy.
Black lab/Yellow Lab mix.
The vet said she is the Einstein of puppies.
She is 9 weeks old and can
sit, lay down, come and walk on a leash perfectly.

Emma is starting to love her.
Here she is...

Love that face!!!

We are taking a weekend off from our house to
go visit the hubs sister in Memphis, TN.
We leave in 10 days!!!
I cannot wait to feel warm sunshine!
Hubs sister just adopted a Golden Retriever,
2 years old named Gypsy.
She was in a rescue and so was Fannie Mae.
They can swap Foster Care stories.

That's all the news! Hope you're all doing well!

Who wouldn't love that sweet puppy? Fannie Mae? She is perfect.
I knew you were going to have a lot of work ahead of you but it sounds like you are getting it done. Those PODS--do they just move the POD to Chicago? I have only seen these on TV.
I totally understand about the kids moving slow. I have kids like that. I stored their things for years and finally told them I was having a garage sale including their stuff and all that was left would go to Goodwill. It was amazing how fast they got their stuff! :) Incentive program!
Enjoy your trip and both of your newest family members!

That is a lot to digest. I am tired just reading it! I hope you find someone to lease your house soon! Congratulations to your daughter and her husband on their house! I hope she is feeling better. The puppy is so cute! My daughter's boyfriend has a black lab puppy, he the best behaved dog I have ever seen. It must be in their blood! Well, I have put my glue gun away for a while, I need to clean and if it was out on the counter I would be so tempted to use it! Maybe by the end of the week. I astually started cleaning my bedroom yesterday. All I have to do is clean the floor and go through my clothes!
Have a wonderful trip to TN. It is a beautiful state, share some pictures!
