Thankful it is FRIDAY!


In addition to a full week of thankful postings, it is time for Finished for Friday (at Lit and Laundry) and Get R Done Friday (at Expressly Corgi). Click the logos to transfer to those blogs, then read and enjoy.

I am writing this Thursday evening. As I mentioned a few days ago, my husband's business is closing. I went in today to sort through artwork that was purchased by us over the years. There were many offices and a long hallway. Eventually automotive art filled much of the wall space and much of that is not ours to keep. Thank goodness. I am running out of room!

I am not truly done by any means with all that needs to be done at work, but I am done with the art work and I've cleaned out the office kitchen. Could someone schedule me for a massage and come pick me and transport me there?

What I should be doing instead of typing here is unpacking boxes. The boxes need to go back tomorrow to hold more stuff. Boy, do we have stuff. Our family room looks like a warehouse wannabe. These are only a few of the pictures.

Your eyes aren't playing tricks on you, we have doubles of two pictures. They hung in different areas. The banker boxes are full of smaller wall art, personal photos in frames, banquet tablecloths, kitchen towels, a few glass canisters and trays, and dust that I thought we might like to look at here for a while.
Still more framed art and two memo boards that I don't have room for but was determined to salvage.
I bought this vintage print for Bill years ago at a shop that specialized in photos pertinent to the Detroit area. It cost me an arm and part of a leg to have it framed. The mirrored "window" behind it used to hang here at the house. I think I have a spot for it in a spare bedroom.
And the last photo is of some dusty artificial plants that may or may not stick around after they've showered. Besides unpacking those boxes and finding temporary homes for all this stuff, I have a 35mm Minolta, a Poloroid camera and a tripod to stash someplace. Is film still readily available for Poloroids? I hope not. I can get rid of it if film isn't available.
Once I am unpacked, I am heading up to bed. I will be thankful that this part of the job is done, that Bill and I don't plan on moving (packing up a house would kill me!) and I am thankful for my bed. Listen.....hear it? It is calling me now. Hang on bed....I'll be there soon!

Thanks for joining GET R DONE today - I hate packing - moving is the worst of all, so glad you aren't doing that! Have a great weekend - as great as it can be.

Good luck with figuring out what you are going to do with that! I don't envy you at all. I still have my own mess as I work on redoing my sewing room. I so wish that project was done. Then maybe I can find things when I need them.....

I hate unpacking! And moving! We moved 3 times in one year about 14 years ago. I don't ever want to do that again!

I also hate unloading and putting away groceries! I have ran out of room for that too!

Get R Done Friday!

Be thankful that its all in your house now and you can just unpack and rearrange at your leisure. I imagine that there are some memories hidden in there, too☺
