We've been living temporarily... in a tiny rental house all that time while building our new home.
Today with the help of my two sons (ages 11 & 15), we started going thru some of our boxes and bringing them to the basement of the new house.
My older son found a metal slinky. I guess they don't make them that way anymore... I haven't gotten it back yet...
My younger son found my grab-it thingy for reaching into high cabinets. He thought it was great fun until I took it away. Poor kitty was being tortured with it!
I'll tell you... it's like Christmas... except as I went thru each box... I had a flood of wonderful memories of life back home in Massachusetts. I could remember where I kept each item in my big, old turn of the century colonial home.... sigh... : )
Now, if I can just get the mudding done... and painting done!!! Yes, I know... one step at a time!
I'm just getting impatient because I have all those wonderful kitchen appliances that I want to start using!!!!!
