Accumulating Stuff

Feels like summer is almost over and I've done NOTHING fun. Anne is currently on vacation and I'm so jealous. I know she and her crew are having a blast. As for me? Seems the summer has been nothing but dealing with things that are soooo not fun. Last weekend, I went to the South Plains of Texas and helped my daughter move from her apartment. She is moving into a new place just a few blocks away. Two of her roomates graduated or made other plans and that left her and another roommate in a four bedroom place. My daughter and her friend have found a nice two bedroom/two bath. So yep. Time to collect boxes full of stuff. Toss the worthless and load the rest.

While sweating our butts off packing things up, she often commented about all the 'crap' she had. Funny how we never realize what we've accumulated until it's time to move it all. I told her to get used to it because sometimes life feels like a series of 'moves'. Some of good, exciting, and others are just a drag. My biggest move was when we bought our current home. We were a young couple with a three year old and really didn't have much. We marvelled at all the cabinet space (many, many were empty for awhile). Now, after twenty years we have filled those empty spaces and it didn't take all that long. The thought of moving from here makes me shudder. Anyway, now I'm recuperating from all the lifting and toting and we'll head back next weekend to move her stuff into the new place. I predict it will be hot, tiring but we'll manage to have some fun, too.

In other news, Eagle's Refuge (Ellora's Cave, June) won Sweetheart Book of the Week at The Romance Studio. So if you voted, thank you, thank you.

Book three in the Texas Passions series.

When Callista Hill settles in tiny Morgan’s Creek, she vows to make a better life for herself. She never figured lust and screaming-hot orgasms were part of the equation. One look at the local bar owner and she’s flooded with the need to have him in her bed. He burns her to ash with every erotic touch, bringing her sex-starved body achingly to life.

The instant dark, moody Mac Moreno claps eyes on Callie, he knows he wants her. Her lush curves turn him inside out and have his libido racing from zero to sixty in three seconds flat. Burning up the sheets with this sassy, sweet lady brings him back to life. But when her stalking ex hunts her down, will Callie run?

Not if Mac can help it.

Congrats on winning book of the week.
The positive is all this will soon calm down and you'll resume a normal life. :)

Yay on book of the week!

I don't know where I get so much stuff. Every time I do a sweep of the house and toss stuff I wonder how I got so much. lol

Thanks, Amber! Yes, I'm hoping everything calms down soon. Today was a tough one. Didn't know whether to scream or cry. One of those days when there was just too much going on.

Congrats on Book of the Week!

Accumulating stuff. We had to clean before leaving for vacation because my MIL was going to be staying here to watch our pets. I was amazed and embarrassed at how much clutter there was in this house. And that's not even including the basement. I need to get down there and do a good spring cleaning, but who has the time?!
