Got my car aligned yesterday morning, and then got to spend about 45 minutes catching up on things with Anne. Then I saw Mike for about an hour, and he bought my kitchen table from me - and offered me $45 more than I would have sold it for! I readily agreed to his price, and the transaction was done. So my table is now his table, and I have two chairs to sell now. Knowing that I'll be moving at the end of next month has prompted me to start trying to get rid of things, and Mike mentioned that he'd been looking at a table at IKEA, and I told him I'd be getting rid of mine. Turned out he'd been considering the exact same table, so it worked out really well to sell it to him. I also have a nice couch and a mattress to get rid of, as well as some other, smaller items. The timing was fortuitous, though, since Gordon and I are heading off to Texas this weekend so I can see my grandmother and he and my family can meet, and the extra money will come in handy for the trip.
I have two more days of work, and I can't tell you how excited I will be to get out of here! I don't know how I've done this for the last 7 months. I never sleep as well during the day, and usually wake up at least once during the day - today I woke up twice, and it took me a while to fall back to sleep both times. And someone knocked at the door around 8pm, too, which didn't help, even though I ignored it.
I haven't been grocery shopping since this Saturday I'm leaving for two weeks to go visit my family in Texas, so my meals are going to be a bit unusual for the next few days - I've got boiled shrimp for lunch tonight, and cherries and pumpkin seeds. I may dash to a grocery store to pick up a salad at lunch, too. I only have to make it until Saturday, and have enough shrimp to last a couple of days, and can always pick up a lamb chop or two to make it to Saturday. I'll probably be trying to clean out my cabinets in the next few weeks as I prepare to move anyway, so I might as well start now.
