Just how many years have those boxes been packed up CG?
Call some donation place to come and get them. You'll never miss them.

SC did some purging of "his" closet with my permission. At least half of his closet had clothes I brought into this house 10 yrs ago and have never worn in all those years. He was clever getting all those clothes out of the house without me noticing. Today I learned he has his closet all to himself, and that's a good thing.
Out of sight, out of mind.

Actually, we disposed of everything BUT personal belongings before I left Cali.. I UPSed all but a suitcase of needs before flying to MO.. Jeannie will UPS a few more things than I did ( a lady thing, I guess. ) before she fly's here.. She is even selling our Camry.. Kinda fun to start over @ 78..

Sister Update - she is doing well, we almost lost her. So each milestone is huge. I'm home, I wasn't doing much but sitting in the waiting room and making the doctors crazy. I promise, I was not diagnosing, just asking questions about her care that they had to actually consider...'cause I do know some things about these things. Dad said he wanted me around if he ever goes to the hospital. Of course, I'm hypervigilant right now...

Thanks GG for the links, I will check them out tonight.

I'm glad she's doing better. My aunt, who was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes when she was six years old and had many complications, told me that everyone who is in the hospital needs an advocate. DH and I have taken that advice seriously. Your sister is a very lucky woman

After having some challenges with arthritis, I've begun my annual Christmas "making" of gifts.

I wish I'd been able to begin in January as I always have, but not my abilities this year

As things go, I've been knitting and crocheting a number of components of a few gifts.

I've been having some challenges with a crocheting pattern that I've done multiple times. Guess I'm having some brain challenges.

Taking care of a grumpy, sick little Tyler today. Washing my hands every 3 seconds, not touching my eyes, managing the TV remote for him...doing everything I can to keep from getting sick myself.

Normally my daughter or SIL would have taken the day off, but Mom is in L.A. on her first work related 2 day travel away from home, and Dad is covering at the police station for others who are out with sick kids and called in earlier than him. So that leaves grandma....ugh..

Tyler's teacher said there were 8 kids in his class out yesterday...sure will be glad when this bug or whatever has run its course.

Hope he's better by now.
We just went through a nasty bug.I was the last one standing.

I bought bleach wipes.Anything that they touched was wiped down.
Should have used Cavi wipes instead. They kill all the germs.
Told them "if you use a towel toss it in the hamper after use.DON'T use it twice and expect to share that hand towel with me!"
Thought that was fair enough warning.
