Now the pain begins.
Saying for the Day: Sometimes one needs a second home just for the junk.
Well the painful process has begun.
We have picked out a house in Neenah .
We are trying to set up the financing.
That alone is driving us nuts.
Because it is a duplex we have to have 20% down.
We don’t have 20%.
The man I talked to was very nice but we still don’t have the 20%.
In the morning I will call the local bank and talk to their loan officer.
Nothing in life is easy.
We have begun putting the house into shape for potential buyers.
That is also a painful process.
The entry hallway is now clean and the floor waxed.
We have started in the living room.
Now the process forces hard questions.
Can we take this to the new house?
The question really is pack? Throw? Give away? Sell?
To understand how painful this is you need to know that we are pack rats.
We have boxes in the basement from our last move that haven’t been opened.
We hate to give up anything.
But now we must.
Tomorrow St. Vincent comes and takes away one recliner that we know there will be no room for.
It has to go.
How many other things will have to go as we continue to clean up and pack up?
I need one of those magic wands.
I wonder if there is a service out there that will come and clean and advise.
They would help decide on what had to go and give moral support.
I would use the service. If it wasn’t too expensive.
News from Pigeon Falls– the little town in my backyard-The Pigeon Days Committee is still taking suggestions for the festivities. I think they have ruled out the rabbit cook off, but everything else is still possible.
Another super market paper had done an article on the mystery of the multiplying rabbit. Most of the article is straight on fabrication but it may bring a few more tourists to Pigeon Falls.
Work on the “Lesser America” amusement park has been going very slowly. There seems to be some kind of problem with the designer . I hear he wants more pay. People were really hoping that the park would open by August.
We had a bit of racist nonsense in the last few days. A tall person of color, stopped at Nancy’s for coffee and a saffron bun. When he left somebody asked Nancy “What’s a person like that doing here?” Nancy didn’t like the attitude so she said it was the new high school basketball coach. That rumor quickly spread around the community and soon people were calling the School Superintendent to complain. He, of course had no idea what they were talking about. One guy even said he would pull his kid off the team if they hired that coach. Boy did he feel stupid when he found out it was just a rumor. It was really kind of funny. But it does show that even little towns like Pigeon Falls have their racists. I expect Pastor Marvel will have something to say next Sunday.
The way things have been going Robert is almost afraid to run his tour for fear of what will happen next. Will we get four white rabbits, each one 2 1/2 feet tall and wearing a pink sweater?

Betty went to Tops. St. Vincent decided it didn't want our recliner. I put the recliner, a couch, rocker, DVD player and shelf on free cycle. Betty came home and we finished another part of the living room. Then she went and had her hair done. She is as beautiful as ever. Blogger stayed up so I got to all the blogs on my list tonight. I hate it when I can't leave a comment. Well I need a breathing treatment.
