I’m not going to lie, this past weekend has left me reeling. My mom’s dog barreled out of our front door as we were pup-sitting and eluded capture for about 10 hours. Since the plan is to move-in with her it was kind of important that we find him. That was Saturday. On Sunday, as we were getting ready to head to the beach, I realized my oldest had lice which I’m not too proud to admit (also, I had an epiphany when I realized where the term “nit picky” comes from). Anyway, that led to a day-long scouring of the children and house and my brain doesn’t want to function this morning (plus “Orange is the New Black” has new episodes on Netflix…priorities). So, my apologies, but today is going to be about what’s going on in our lives rather than about Sligo.
Things are starting to get hectic around our current house. The game plan is to pack the essentials and move-in with my mom while Sligo is being renovated. We thought it would be best for the girls to start the school year at their new school rather than switching schools half-way through the year so we have a self-imposed move date of two weeks from now. Plus, we are putting the current house on the market and hope to sell it quickly. However, before we can sell the current house we have to get the master bathroom put back together so, the word “stress” is being thrown around a lot and alcohol is being consumed at an alarmingly fast rate.
Along with the master bathroom and packing the essentials we need to purge of the items we don’t want, or need, to move with. Naturally, I can attribute the unnecessary, larger items to the hoarder in disguise, Marcus. Currently, there is a boat that has been parked on the side of the road for a few months that needs to go, and an ICEE Machine in the garage that has been sitting for a year, untouched with the exception of the times I’ve had to move it to get to something else.
Here’s hoping the next few weeks go smoothly and I can come up with some more posts about Sligo to keep you all interested!
