After I managed to drag myself away from my new toy, we went up to the garage and started to tackle the overwhelming Christmas decorations.
Al has been complaining for years that I had way too many Christmas decorations and they took up an entire corner in his garage. I have to admit that I have really not had the interest to decorate very much the past few years. It just seems to be too much effort. You have to put away all your normal decorations and then when it's all over, change everything around again. I guess it's a part of getting older. Bah humbug :)
Anyway, we sorted through the decorations and I saved only a few items that fit in a very small box. We have a little tree that sits on the dash of the motor home. I have to admit, it is kind of a sad process. I love my decorations and it was fun going through all of it, but a little sad putting it in boxes for the garage sale. There are memories attached to a lot of these things. However, it can't possibly all fit in the motor home and we're hitting the road once the house sells....so it's gotta go!
I spoke to our Realtor today and she said the lady who popped in last week with her Realtor, is making an offer on the other house she looked at that day. We thought she was just a looker and not really in the market for a house, but apparently not. Lorraine thinks she is going to make a low ball offer on the other house and it was priced $10,000 less than ours to start with. I guess, you just never know about people. I think she really liked our house (from what she said), but we're guessing it was out of her price range.
So, anyway that got me to thinking that something could happen anytime and we need to move a little faster on this purging process. We work better under pressure, but not that much pressure!
I've went on E-bay today and ordered some accessories for the new Droid phone. It's an expensive phone, so I got a hard case, and also a cute little red leather pouch for it. I also got something to protect the screen, a car window mount, and a car charger. It has what seems to be a very nice little GPS feature in it and with the suction holder for the car, I think it will be handy. Of course, we have two other GPS, but for a "directionally challenged" girl like me, you can't be too careful :)
I've been playing with it and keep finding new things that it does. You can send an email by saying it, instead of typing. That's pretty cool. It has a real nice video camera too. I downloaded a few apps and even got one to help you improve your memory! I set up Yahoo and Gmail, so I can read my emails from the phone. Internet surfing is a little tricky, but do-able. It has 7 home screens that you can load up with stuff! It's a pretty amazing little gadget and Rick...you need to get one! The computer geek in you will love it!
Tomorrow we have to take more stuff to the storage shed for our next garage sale, and I have an item that I sold on eBay to mail.
Our weather had really cooled off. This morning it was 46 degrees when we got up! In the 70's during the day...perfect.
