Now that the kids have got their own place and are moving out I can’t wait to really dig in. It was hard with all the extra things around that comes with 4 other people with 3 of them being children. Of course there’s all of Brody’s toys and the two older ones have their things laying around too. The extra clothes and coats created some clutter as well. And of course, with kids being kids they sometimes forget to pick things up or put them back where they got them. I’ll have to learn how to cook smaller portions again too lol.
I’m sure we’ll notice the difference money wise too. Sis would help with the groceries and things but the laundry alone will save us tons of money. The light bill will go down as well I’m sure. But it was the clutter that bothered me the most. I tried not to let it get to me too much and succeeded for the most part but now that I see things slowly getting cleared out it feels like a weight’s been lifted.
She isn’t going to get cable for their television. Instead she gave me money last night to go buy her a converter box that will change digital signals to analog. I think that’s very wise. I don’t know how many channels they’ll get but they’ll get by.
Her co-workers did a wonderful thing for them. Several of them got together and bought her two laundry baskets and filled them with cleaning products, kitchen utensils, kitchen towels, TP and paper towel and several other things. She was so surprised and flabbergasted. She never dreamed they would do something like that but she sure appreciated it. Not only that, one of the girls she works with was telling her family about them so they went through their things that they don’t use anymore and gave them too her too. Isn’t that wonderful? It made me feel so good that they think that much of her to do that. One of them said…”We kind of like you Deanna” They sure showed her just how much they do. I love them for that!
I better get in the shower so we can go get that box for her. We also have to stop off at our sons and get a television he’s giving her and some end tables. So I’ll say Ta Ta for now.
Have a great weekend. Go out and do something fun!
