That’s how long it will be until we move to the duplex. Do you think I’m excited? Huh?
At last I’ll be able to go to the kitchen without disturbing Big Al at his desk!
We’ll be able to do all the wash in three loads once a week, instead of four loads every five days.
We’ll have a usable fireplace and be able to have a nice fire while we’re watching TV in the evening.
We’ll be able to adjust our thermostat by ourselves, instead of jumping through hoops to get maintenance to adjust it for us.
We’ll both be able to sit at the kitchen table at the same time.
I’ll be able to set up the card table and sort the taxes without having to take it down every day.
But enough about the move…
We were interviewed this morning for an article about us in the church newsletter. We probably talked the lady’s ear off, but she seemed to get the general jist of our life. I’m going to try to take a class, starting tomorrow, about writing your life story. I know I did a lot on the blog a couple of summers ago, and I have some other stuff on the genealogy, but I would like to consolidate it all and get it in some kind of decent order. I don’t really think anybody but the kids will be interested in reading it, but future generations will probably appreciate it. I treasure a “family history” started by William Eakin in the 1840s and added to by John Rodgers Eakin in the 1870s, that was added to again by Aunt Mary (Eakin) Dawson before being given to me and my siblings and cousins in the 1960s.
I didn’t get up to the Wellness Center again today, and tonight I’m going to the Interfaith Bible discussion group. I think we’re meeting at the Synagogue tonight. It’s an interesting group of people. I wish we had some Muslims who would attend. I miss the Turks and their thoughtful analysis of the scriptures.
I will definitely get to exercise tomorrow at Tai Chi!
