Last night after dinner Hub's and I went over to help a new family move into our church community. We came late and we were helping with the larger furniture and of course the piano! Well I was carrying smaller boxes and the men did the larger stuff. I could tell the poor mom was just so tired and overwhelmed.
The house they rented was older with many small rooms. I swear every room was full to the ceiling with boxes. Who has this much stuff? Shelving unit after shelving unit came off that truck. I was totally amazed. One of the kids said that there were boxes that they had not unpacked from the last move on the truck. My though was if you didn't unpack it last time you don't need it. Then......
I drove into my own garage and thought what if people came to my house and drove into this garage? They would think the same thing. I mean really. Why do we have so much stuff?
Anyway I am going to take dinner into them tonight which she was very grateful for that offering and then go over after our dinner to help her unpack. I don't know what I am getting myself in for as it looks like a chaotic mess. But then when is moving not chaotic and messy?
I had put out frozen bananas to make banana bread today. Have no idea what I will make for them but I know chicken is on the menu:) Gotta get rid of all that chicken.
I was able to get two more Wedding dresses done yesterday and three more bridesmaids. Today I must hem pants and work on a few other odds and ends. I know there are a couple of zippers to do. I don't think the ironing will ever get done. Tomorrow the littles come so I have no idea what I will get done with them under foot.
Anyway I am busy and that is good. Doing for others really helps heal the broken heart.
Have a a great and productive day staying positive while you are in the negative.
