It doesn't feel like it should be Thursday already this week. I had to run into town to pick up a prescription during my lunch break. I was only gone a half hour, so for the rest of my break I worked on getting another bag of old papers from one of the bins in nearby upstairs closet thrown out. It's a closet in the guest bedroom next to my office (my office doesn't have any closets) and I put 2 big bins in there to get out of my office and I've slowly been going through them to try to get rid of what I can. It's mostly papers from years ago. Lots of reports and such from my side job, back before I had 2 monitors, and had to print out reports to use. My goal is to get down to one bin in the closet. It's kind of a long narrow walk in closet, but looks like a complete mess right now. Then I went into the other guest bedroom closet (also a large closet), where while it's all neat in there, there are still 3 bins in there. One has all our old dvds and vhs tapes. Now that the bonus room is carpeted and we won't have to move the tv cabinet around anymore, I took all the movies and put them underneath/inside the tv cabinet and now that bin can be put out in the shop with the other stacked empty bins. Also in there were 3 books that are dh's, so I gave them to him to add to his new den bookcase. I still need to go through the other 2 bins in that closet and see what I can get rid of. I opened the lid on one and on top was a crocheted afghan. I think my mom made it years ago, but could have been my grandma. They both crocheted. It's a cream color and I think I'll take it and put it across the back of the sofa I have in my office. It looks like half of it is sewing/craft stuff.
ok, I just went and got the afghan - it's not what I thought it was - it was something I had started knitting years ago, just before we decided to move and never got it completed. It was when I was trying to learn to knit. It's not very good, LOL and maybe 2/3 finished. Now I have to try to figure out what to do with it.....Also in the bin is this rolled up black construction paper thing. I figured it must be something dh wanted to keep that dd made for school or something. So I just brought it into my office to cut the tape holding it rolled up and it's nothing! Just black rolled up poster/construction board, LOL. I'm sure it was something, during packing that dh just couldn't throw away.....I certainly would not have packed that to move, LOL. I will get it put into the garbage when he's not looking. Otherwise it will be a 10 minute conversation to get it thrown away! I have to do that all the time, just get rid of old stuff like that and get it into the garbage sack with other stuff I am throwing out so I don't have to deal with him, LOL. Even throwing away MY old work papers would end up being a discussion if I told him I was throwing them out. When I am emptying all our little waste baskets from bathrooms and bedrooms I also take a second white kitchen garbage bag with the papers and stuff I am throwing out and put it underneath the regular one when I throw it out in the big garbage can. Just something I've learned over the years to cut down on dealing with him never wanting to throw anything out or having to go through a whole discussion just to get something thrown out, where I have to explain what it is and why I'm throwing it away.
Last night I watched new episodes of 2 shows I am watching on Apple+tv and read a few pages of a book I'm trying to get into.
I thought I had finished and posted this earlier today, but I guess not. Got interrupted too many times, I guess.
We have an issue that needs to be fixed on our car (under warranty). Dh called today to make an appointment for it to get done. Good grief. First it's 3 weeks before we can get the diagnostic appointment for car so they can see what the issue is, then we can take it back at another appointment to have the work done. He also told the service dept that if they get a cancellation feel free to call him and and he can come in any time.
