This is everything from Mom’s house. The place is empty, the keys went to the new owners, and I never have to make that six hour round trip again.
I have matching piles in the living room, the dining room and two storage units.
We picked up my husband’s friend and the rental truck Friday morning and hit the road. I made it a few exits down the turnpike when my phone rang. Mom had fallen (again) and broke her hip. After some frantic phone calls to the guys in the truck, we both exited so I could give them the house keys and some supplies. I never made it to the house. My only contribution was helping unload the truck at this end.
I spent the entire day at the hospital. Mom had surgery in the afternoon and is recovering. It will be a long road ahead for her.
It will also be a long time before my truck sees the inside of the garage again. The guys loaded everything on the truck. I doubt I would have kept as much, but my husband’s buddy is one of those people that throws very little away. When I took items straight from the truck to the garbage, he pulled them back out. I decided to wait until he went home to do my sorting.
I also decided that I have to take some time for me or the responsibilities that come with mom will crush me. It wasn’t much, but I did start the second Frosty panel yesterday.
