It Begins ~Packing, Moving, Cleaning....
Saturday my daughter, middle grand and
son in law came to help me at mom's house.
The living room was FULL of boxes. Items
I had packed up for others, things they requested,
things they gave mom, pics of their children etc.
The fam helped me move all that to the
basement till the others come and get.
Yesterday I went over and dusted
the floors which are the original
flooring in the house. Over the
years their was carpet down but
about ten years ago I helped
mom rip that up, she hired the
floors sanded and redone. I
mopped the whole upstairs.
Moved over two loads of
boxes I have packed.
I am sitting them in the corner of
the living room till furniture is
moved over. Hoping for no rain
this coming weekend, and I will
rent a U Haul. Amber and the small
baseball team of grandsons we hope
to get the furniture moved.
Here is my dining room.
Mom just had the kitchen, living room,
dining room and hall painted about
6 months before we lost her.
And you can tell the stairs come
up between the dining room and
living room. Really not a fan of the
iron rail BUT...it is original to the
house so I am going back and
Mom had the china cabinet
on the other fall with her
table in front of that.
It made going to the
back door tight so I moved
the cabinet, which I plan to
keep for now. That way I
think my table, same size as
her's will fit nicely in the far
end of the dining room.
This is a shot of the living room.
HAHA...Yep, I have moved
things to this one area. The
dresser, night stand and chest
of drawers I don't need. My
brother Mark is going to move
it to Goodwill.....and I am trying
to let go of looking at these
pieces as projects!!
The end table has been around forever.
There are two of them and a coffee table.
Mid century style and that is what Mark
loves. He is taking those. I am glad cause
they are pieces mom and dad picked
out in the 50's.
Back of the living room.
Curtains are perfect almost
like what I have in my living
room now. I like also that I
will be going from one small
window to these!!
Packing here and there....wow
its been 28 years since I have moved!
I am TOOOOOOO OLD for this!
So here is the first of
pics to share with you my
blogging friends. I would
love to take you along on
this journey with me.
I think I shared with you
my word for the
one step at
