Happy 4th of July!

Today was the fourth of July and like most holidays I dreaded it.  I don't know why I am like that but I struggle with it all the time and just try to keep busy with things so I make it through.

Yesterday I advertised three things on facebook and sold two.  I advertised my oak desk...which I like but could live without.  My high table and two bar stools...which is never used and just takes up room.  Living alone I usually eat on a tv tray/table.  And the last was my stampin up collection.  The stampin up collection went right was worth over $1000 but I wanted it gone and actually ended up getting $230 for all of it.  The high table and stools sold today for $50.  I still have the desk and no one even commented on it.  I guess oak furniture is out of style.  Now I have a little more room in my apartment. 

Tomorrow I leave to go and spend two days at my oldest daughter's house.  They are going to the amusement park and need someone to stay with the pets.  Then Monday starts the summer reading program and of all things Monday afternoon my daughter is getting married!  My oldest daughter is named Holly.  She was a difficult teen and left home at 15 and had a baby at 17.....somehow she went back to school in the evenings and got her high school diploma...then worked in factories for years...later she got tired of that and went to college where she got a degree in nursing.  She is now an RN.  We have sometimes disagreed on things but one thing I appreciate is that she will tell you how it really is.  If she doesn't like something or if you are making a mistake she is right there telling you...and she stands up for anyone who she thinks is in the right or is being mistreated.  No one in the family tangles with her!

Here is her picture :

and yes, that is her soon to be husband!
Nite all....


  1. You are doing great at scaling down to be ready to move to Florida. 2 out of 3 isnt bad at all. Your daughter is lovely and sorry you will miss the wedding. Enjoy the rest of the weekend.

  2. I'm sorry Linda for the misunderstanding...I am going to the wedding....I get off work at noon and then heading out to the wedding....its just a courtroom affair but we will go out to eat at a nice restaurant in Toledo. Thanks for the comment...I am trying to sort some each day...small steps.
