Time to cool off

Well we got most of the garage moved this weekend. That is right we moved in 110 degree heat. I don't think I ever drank so much water!

Now I just need to get into the garage and sort through all the little stuff. I have three piles started. Trash, yard sale, and move.

I must say that moving the garage would have gone better if the marines would have listened to me.

I told the marines that they could each leave one crate of stuff at our house. This way they would have some clean cloths for when they got home.

Here is what I ended up with. One tire on the rim, a full size bed, 5 peoples complete set of dress uniforms, 3 sea bags stuffed with stuff and a 12 crates. I was so pissed. I told Rusty that this will be the last time I even offer to let them keep one crate at the house.

Two of the marines were nice enough to leave their dirty clothes in a pile, so I just threw them away.

One of the marines called me from Iraq. Can you believe it is just as hot here as it is Iraq! I also told him that I threw his dirty clothes away. Nothing was said to that.

I am thinking that we all need to go to the pool for a few hours. I am so sick of packing and moving, but at least it is getting done.

I need go pack the car because I will have to pick Nikki up, so there is no since in wasting the gas. Nikki's school is only a few blocks from the new house.

Then I am going to make some lunch and try to relax some. I know that there is so much that I should be doing, but I just cant be bothered to care today.

Moving is ugly anytime but I can't imagine movinf in 110* .  It's a cool 71* here in western Washington at noon.  How about a root beer float..that's would be good..Linda in Washington state

its too hot to bother to do much; I vote the pool to cool off; I did see we are supposed to get into the 70s by next weekend; one can only hope

not to top your moving story but yesterday at church, one of the pastors was remarking on how hot it was and said he understood as he lived previously in the desert and highest heat he had been in was 130 degrees; said he also moved that day (whether he was telling the truth, I don't know LOL) but it was hot this past weekend; I'm glad you did drink plenty of fluids; that was better from last time when you were out in the sun for Nicci's game

I vote the pool too.  I was thinking about finding one just today.  Please write me with your new mailing address too.  I don't like being taken advantage of either.  Kinda would make me mad too.  These are grown people. Geesh.  

You're moving kinda like that clean sweep show.

You have been out for that heat.  Don't over do things.  Glad you went to the pool to cool down.  Hope things go smoothly for you and the move,
Hugs and love,

I hope you made it to the pool. Let's pray this is your last move for awhile.

I think it is only fair that you threw away the dirty clothes.  It is outrageous to be expected to provide storage for them, too.  My son has left his basketball trophies with me for about 16 years now, also some navy stuff.  He has been back from the navy years.  Somebody took all this stuff out of storage in order to take my locker here, but I somehow got all the stuff back from different people who had it.  Now the basketball trophies are displayed again in my front room.  The only one who has ever paid any attention to them is his son Dante who played with them everytime he came to visit me.  So at least somebody got some use out of them~ I would like to point out that this service you provided for these people is an example of what you do for people.  I personally do not want you to get any more involved in helping people than you are!  Gerry
