Moving Day!!

*This was supposed to have posted on Friday , the 14th.  It was my first attempt at scheduling a post ahead of time.  Apparently I did something wrong.  sigh…  No matter, I’ve moved!  I’m sore and tired, but getting settled in.  I’ve taken some vacation time to get things done here.  I am so, so happy!  

It’s finally Moving Day!!  It’s been a long time coming, but today is the day that I finally move into my home!!

I’ve got boxes stacked in every room.  I’ve been living out of a box for several days now.  I’ve been trying to eat up what I have in my fridge so that I don’t have to transport any more refrigerated items than I have to.  Even the coffee pot is packed!  Horrors!!  🙂

So that my closets are ready to move, I’ve had to plan out exactly what I will be wearing for several days.

At the new place, I’ve scrubbed the bathroom and the kitchen.  I lined the shelves in the kitchen and I’ve had the carpets shampooed throughout the house.  I purchased and assembled some storage shelves for the garage.  I’ve had some trees trimmed in the yard and the lawn mowed.

I’ve accomplished a lot!

Around noon, my Big Brother will be at the house to install new door locks for me.  (his housewarming gift)  He will also be bringing a picnic lunch for us that my sweet sister-in-law has prepared.

I’m as ready as I can be and I keep feeling like pinching myself because of all of the wonderful Blessings that are taking place in my life right now!

Wish me luck!  Thank you for joining me on this journey!  Penny  ❤

Followers and Fakes

I just went through my list of followers and deleted a bunch of them.  GASP!!  Why?  Because they’re fake!!

Has anyone else noticed this?  I did a post sometime back about how bad Internet dating is.  Oh boy, you should see some of the racey followers I got from that!  I got followers from exotic girl dating sites, all different countries and I got followers from Hookup sites.

My recent posts about me buying my house has resulted in followers from several Real Estate companies.

These, of course, are spam.

It’s disheartening!

Do you remember when you reached your first significant benchmark of followers? Maybe it was 100 or 500.  For me, the first time I got really blown away was when I reached 300 followers!  I was thrilled!!

I still feel that thrill when I see the numbers grow.  But now, I question it.

It would be nice to have an accurate number.

*What’s your take on this?  You get spammy followers?  Is your follower count accurate?

Madness

Loving you was madness.

Delicious madness.

I was never more alive!

It was wrong and I knew it.

I was helpless to stop it.

I wouldn’t have stopped it if I could.

The insanity was worth it.

You were worth it.

My Glass house

Looking out through the glass walls, I keep my distance.  You see, the glass lets me observe life without getting my hands dirty.

Become a participant?  Oh, no.  Risk the safety of my glass sanctuary?  I couldn’t possibly!

I’ve built perfection here.  Everything in its place.  Everything as it should be.

Getting Ready to Get Ready….

I’m sorry that I haven’t posted in a while.  Between getting the new location ready, work and packing and organizing things for the move, I am just bone tired.  I know it will all be worth it, but I’m wore down to a nub.  🙂  My move date is the 14th, so this will be my last weekend to finish ALL of the packing.

I’ve got piles of mess everywhere, in preparation for the move.  I have looked for something that is already packed a few times.  So everything is pretty much in chaos.  Stressful for me to have my life so disorganized.

I’m not sleeping very well either.  My brain just won’t shut down.  I keep thinking about everything that still needs to be done!

I will get back to a regular posting schedule eventually, but it’s going to be a few weeks.  I will continue to peek in when I can, I miss you guys!

Thanks for joining me on this journey!  Penny ❤

She Waits

*As a teen, Cheryl knew that if she could just lose those last 10 pounds, everything would be better.  People would like her more.  Men would be more attracted to her.  So, she waited to go out.  She waited to attend the parties and she waited to socialize.

*As a young woman, Cheryl held the precious piece of depression glass in her hands, turning it this way and that way; admiring the beauty of the hand-blown piece.  It was a treasure passed down from her grandmother.  She wanted to set it in the middle of the table.  It would make such a beautiful display!  But she decided that she should wait for a special day to display the treasure.  She carefully wrapped it up in its tissue paper and placed it back in the box she kept stored in the closet.
