Happy Thursday :)

It's Thursday! I felt like doing a random post. There will be a post tomorrow and another one on Sunday but that's tomorrow and Sunday; not today.

There isn't a whole lot going on in my world. I've been doing some packing, purging, and selling of items. Oh, and other random things that come up along the way. I've sold the bedroom furniture. I've also sold our poker table and a four-drawer filing cabinet. I've got other items up on Craigslist including, but not limited to, a dining room table & chairs, a papasan chair, a two-drawer filing cabinet, a stereo with a 3-disc CD player, tape deck, and record player, a CD/DVD rack, and other random things. I have boxes for St. Vinny's, too. The bedroom looks like a tornado hit it because of all the boxes. I'm having to go through all the boxes again because when I sold the bedroom furniture, everything that was in the drawers was unceremoniously thrown into boxes.

Today, I had a plumber over to the house to check out my kitchen faucet. It's never worked correctly. Ever. The house isn't even twenty years old. There have been at least three, probably four faucets, in that kitchen. The faucet wasn't the problem. So, I think we may have actually gotten the problem taken care of. We'll see.

Today was also the day that I had a huge dumpster delivered to my driveway. Seriously. It's twenty-two feet long and six feet high. I can't even describe it. It's just huge. I hope we don't fill it, to be honest. Then again, if we fill it, it's that much that we don't have to deal with when we move.

As a result of the packing and other random things going on, I haven't had much time to knit. I spent some time knitting yesterday while I was waiting for my car to be done. I've been knitting late at night after Little Man is in bed. Of course, since we've been sick, the last thing I want to do is stay up late knitting.

I'm hoping this will be fixed once we're feeling better.

Anyway, it's getting to be time to shower and head over to the daycare to pick up Little Man. I think we're going to go out for dinner tonight. I don't have anything ready or thawed out (I was thinking of making a roast but it's still frozen).

I hope you're all having a lovely Thursday :)


  1. You are so productive, Renee! That is very admirable and awesome.
    I did some shoppin' at Beverly's but totally forgot to get tissue paper which was my total objective for going back to a craft store (Yesterday was Michael's and of course I forgot to look up what I needed to make paper pom poms.)!
    I helped my 80 something grandmother water the bldg's plants and I wiped down the kitchen counters and scrubbed down the floor on my hands and knees. Hopefully my wrists won't hurt too much.

    1. I think you've probably been more productive than I have. I need to scrub in the kitchen...and bathroom. But there's no real point to doing it right now since I'm just going to have to do it again after we get everything out of the house.

      Oh well :)
