Too Ambitious....Maybe?

Okay, so, umm....where to start. We just got home yesterday from a lovely week in Rochester, and by lovely, I mean absolutely refreshing and relaxing. Now it's back to reality, right? I made my little list of things to do today.
1. Pick and can green beans
2. Put clothes away
3. Clean bathroom
4. Do 2 loads of laundry....etc, etc.....
You get the idea...typical things that need to be done after being gone for a week. So I accomplished 1-4 on the list before getting distracted. Actually, that's not true, I have only done 1 load of laundry. So, back to the distraction. It doesn't take much for me, I am busy doing something, have something else in my head that I'd like to see done and before I know it I'm not getting much done at all. Oh, and Jerem, if you're reading this before you've come home, you can stop reading now and just dwell on the fact that I've done items 1-4.

This story really starts back in June when Mjean and I and Marge did a garage sale. Mjean was trying to sell some old love seats, really she was trying to get rid of them since they were kinda old and dirty. But after sitting across from them for 4 hrs, staring.....they kinda grew on me. So much in fact that I decided to take them off her hands and get them recovered. They are now ready for us to pick up and I am so excited to have a change in the living room before the baby comes. We are hoping to get them tonight or tomorrow and since I'm so excited, I, of course, want to be prepared as possible by this evening. Prepared as in moving the 8 foot long couch OUT of the living room and rearranging in anticipation. Since I am 8 1/2 months pregnant I don't lift...I might make some people mad if they heard I lifted. So I scooted the couch to one door. Wouldn't fit. I scooted it back. You see, the beauty in trailer houses is they make the doors/halls/and porches at such complicating angles so that it is nearly impossible to move anything out or in via anything but a window. In the last 6 months we have moved a grill in (in the box...needed to be wrapped..was -29 outside), and a bunk bed. Oh, and now a couch. I admit, it's a tad tricky "scooting" a couch out of a window, but with Anson's strong muscles to help we got'r'done. And to think, I only put a couple (small) holes in the door and bent the screen for the window. I think it can be fixed.
