On the Move

So there are a lot of things happening around here.  On Tuesday, I can start moving into my new townhouse.  I have been gathering up all of the odds and ends of my life here at Grandma's and am getting excited to dig out the rest from the storage unit.

I bought a brand spanking new sofa.  I nixed the $59 delivery fee and will pick it up on Tuesday.  This is the first sofa I have picked out and bought myself.  When I was married my ex bought me a sofa and love seat for an anniversary gift.  I liked them enough but was a little bugged that I didn't get to pick them out.  My last sofa was a hand me down.  I am almost as excited about the sofa as I am about the move.  

To add yet another level of excitement to the upcoming week, I only have to work on Monday then I am off until the 14th. Almost two full weeks of paid vacation.  I am going to need it. 

Not only am I moving, Grandma is moving as well.  We have found an assisted living facility that I think she will really enjoy.  It is very homey, she will have a suite with living room, kitchenette, full bathroom, and bedroom.  She can take her own furniture and make it into her new "home".   The weekend has been busy with her picking out what she will be taking and me packing my own stuff.

If I don't post this week at least it won't be out of laziness. 

Hope all of you have a great week.

It sounds like you will be busy! I'm excited for you. I look forward to seeing a full tour of the new digs!

Ya for your grandma.
Wow.......two moves for the price of one "paid vacation". I'm tired for you.
I think I'll take a nap.

Thank you for the wonderful care you've provided for Grandma. Your service has been such a gift and has helped everyone have a better idea of what Grandma can and can't do- so that they could all make a decision that was in her best interest. I'm pretty sure Grandma will adapt and enjoy her new home and the friends she'll have. Grandma has always been adaptable.

I'm excited for YOU to get your life back too. The townhouse sounds cute and I'm sure you'll enjoy it. Congrats on the sofa! I love buying house stuff but it's a rare treat.
