Pretty Is As Pretty Doesn't Do Anything

  1. I'm pretty sure that I'm pretty tired of making a pretty good effort of getting my mom's condo ready to sell. But I'm going up there today anyway. I think we're almost done.

    We had dinner instead of breakfast with Larry as he decided not to stop the night but keep on going for another few hours. It was, as it has been every time we've met up, a very enjoyable time.

    Hope you had a safe and uneventful drive last night, Larry.

    Too bad on the bed frame, Maria. No way to get another futon that will work with that mattress?

    I'm sure she'll be hopping up there really soon, Dina.

    Well that made me feel like the geezer I am, Jen -- I was in college when that came out.

    Sorry about the commenting efforts, candis, but thanks for making them ... and the compliment.

  2. And I was in diapers when Roundabout charted but the music of those days was so damn good that I sang and danced before I walked and talked. ;) Wishing you a burst of extra of energy to get things all wrapped up at your mom's.

    Maria, everywhere I've ever lived there have been massive Labor Day furniture store sales. You might want to hold off a week or so and see if you can score a screaming deal on a decent mattress-boxspring combo, and then all you really NEED is one of those basic cheap metal frames. I hope it all works out comfortably for you, regardless.

    Safe travels to Larry, and best wishes to all of you!

  3. Ended up getting a Sealy mattress/boxspring at Sleepy's for a really awesome price (on clearance). Picked up a basic metal frame and they are delivering it all tomorrow. Plus, for a small fee, they're taking away the old mattress & broken frame. I hated paying for that, but since I'd have to figure out how to get rid of it otherwise, it was money well spent.

    Today, I'm doing some decluttering in anticipation. Cleaning up a "junk corner" and going to eventually move around some small bookshelves that I'm repurposing to display collectibles. Mostly, the shelves had held junk, so it's time to do this. It's going to take me a while, since I have to keep stopping to rest, but I'm okay with that. It will get done.

    Hope everyone is having a great Friday!

  4. Happy Friday, all.

    Maddie is settling in nicely, Shadow is barely hissing and I am happy.
