Today was sort of busy..... not by the standards and activity list of lots of you all!
I didn't sleep well last night, with Hubs gone. Makes a bit jittery to be alone in the house all night. I locked all the doors, as usual, and set the house alarm, as usual. But then I turned on my closet light, and shut the bedroom door, which I usually never do (unless we have company). But I still kept hearing things go creak in the night, and probably didn't get over a couple hours sleep total.
Then up early this morning to go help at the charity yard sale. Had a great sale and made over $900 by noon. Hubs was home by noon, so I left the sale and we went to a Mexi restaurant by our home. It was only later in the evening that I remembered it was Cinco de Mayo! Anyway, we enjoyed a nice lunch and caught with what we each had been doing, how his meetings went, and his time with my brother. He said he didn't sleep well there..... LOL! Now we had TWO sleepyheads! So we took a nap.....
Then the gutter guy came to do an estimate and I checked on Mom. Neither of us were hungry for supper..... so that was easy!
Before I left for the sale this morning, I was looking for my fanny pack. That's always a good way to stay hands free during sales. I thought it was in my top dresser drawer, AKA junk drawer, but could not find it. And in so looking, I dragged out all sorts of things and just left them on the dresser top. I hate clutter and mess, so late afternoon found me emptying the entire drawer onto the bed and sorting thru things. I found old insurance cards... trash. Found a vial of my dad's pills.... trash. Found a few items to put in yard sale. Found some jewelry that I had forgotten about. Found coins everywhere, and sorted them. Found a set of linen napkins. Found old sun glasses. Found Mother's Day cards. Found some Dutch lace and one ladies evening glove. Found my father's mementos in a wooden box. Found my granddaughters tiara. Found Mom's notes and piece of silk. Found two whistles, a bunch of marbles, and some candy. Found three notepads, a pen and a sharpie. Found some bra strap adjusters and a shoe string and a headband. Found 6 coin wallets and two credit card wallets, plus a neck packet for traveling. Note...... I never found the fanny pack..... Found hearing aid batteries that I forgot I bought, and extra batteries for my toothbrush. Four nail files, three tiny boxes, two heart shaped containers, but no partridge in a pear tree. And to top it off, I found a bunch of wooden spools, a bunch of unidentified keys, and all those little buttons that come with sweaters and blouses, each in a little plastic bag. There are probably 40-50 of them. So I sorted and separated and tossed..... and now I have a tidy drawer again.... for a while.
