I have a friend who likes to say, "Get out your broad shoulders!" when things get tough. She says it means you just have to plow through. I'm pretty good at that. Sometimes I look back and wonder how I got through everything without having a nervous breakdown, LOL. I have a feeling this month will be one of those times.
We're so dang busy all the time, yet I still take on more. I think one of my goals for next year will be to learn to say, "No," a little more often. Or maybe a lot more often. It's not that I don't want to help, just that I have to accept that I have limits, just like everyone else. Walker is just like me, always taking on just one more task. That's probably not a good thing. We'll have to learn to balance each other out.
Bro got his house! We all drove over Wednesday afternoon and cleaned as much as we could before Walker and I had to get to work and my mom had to get home. She doesn't do much driving in the dark these days. Bro's house is about a thirty minute drive from here, through deer infested corn fields. I don't blame my mom for wanting to get home before dark.
I think we'll need the weekend to get the moving finished. Not sure that will even do it, as Diva turns ten today - wahoo! - and we're throwing her a party tomorrow. The forecast is calling for freezing rain, too. Hauling furniture up icy sidewalks, trying not to fall, is not the best plan. We're going to try to get as much hauled as we can before the weather comes in. If we can get it all, we're good. Then it's just arranging furniture and unpacking boxes. Getting the hauling done is a pretty big "if" though. Anybody wanna help, LOL?
