Boxes, Legs, and Monday Mornings...

Boxes:
Although my stack of packed boxes is not nearly as impressive as Bouncin Barb's, I got a good handle on the stuff. This picture does not take into consideration the boxes in Ron's closet or the boxes in the garage which hold either stuff for the sale, stuff to be donated, or stuff to take to the storage unit.


There are 18 boxes on my wall and 3 in Ron's closet. I ran out of packing tape or I would have gotten more done. I will get some more tape this week and get the kitchen packed up this weekend (probably Sunday; I'm going scrapbooking on Saturday).

Legs:
Ron went for his initial visit for his permanent leg. The prosthetist will make his foot articulating so he should be able to drive again (there are other conditions that play into this, but if he could get his legs working, then maybe the other stuff will level out and driving won't be that big of an issue - especially in the little town we're moving to). He's also going to make the lower leg and foot look REAL so when he's wearing shorts (which he does mostly), the casual observer won't realize the leg is fake. That is pretty cool.

Monday Morning:
I was up and about early today and the morning did not feel like a "Monday" at all. Even though it was icky outside (and not any better tonight), I really had a great day. Finally got my body used to the daylight savings time change of a couple of weeks ago and I was really ready to go today. Ron and I had about 30 minutes of just sitting and visiting before I had to get ready to leave. It was pretty nice.

What about you all??? How was your Monday?

That really is wonderful news about Ron's leg. I pray that all will go well with no hiccups. Those boxes are pretty impressive I must admit! I expect you will be glad now when you're in the new place and make it like home. My Monday was lovely. I looked after my 15 month granddaughter all day, and it was a blessing to be able to do so!

Oh, I feel your pain. I HATE PACKING!! But I LOVE unpacking and making a new nest. We are doing a lot of "adjusting" over here, with our budget, weeding out stuff (will it EVER END???) and doing some yard work...Good thing the days are longer...but they go so dang fast!

Holy moly, you've been busting it with the packing tape! Way to go! Soon this will all be a memory...just keep plugging away!

those boxes are intimidating, yet I feel the need to take yours and Barb's boxes and make a huge castle... back to reality. Glad to hear about Ron's leg. I hope all goes well for you :D

That IS cool how they can make Ron's leg look real! I am alwasy amazed by medicine these days! We are so blessed to live in a time when science is so advanced! It makes me think often of how long the world has been around & how even just 100 years ago how different it was.

Looks like the packing is going well! I hope your kitchen will go well tomorrow! It sure is a ton of work!!!
