I’m not feeling great so I’m going to keep this one real short.
Over the weekend my wife and I decided to downsize a little bit. We went through our closets and drawers and got rid of a ton of clothes, shoes, ties, etc. I was able to get four full garbage bags of stuff from my clothing alone. When we were done we took the items to the Salvation Army drop off site up the road. I like the feeling of less clutter and not letting the material good have such a hold on me. I also love the idea of someone else having the opportunity to get real use out of the things I was no longer using.
Sunday we went back to my wife’s grandparent’s house to meet with a guy from the township about the land he would like to give to us. It was a simple meeting, nothing really important, but what would come next is having the land surveyed and deeded over to us. That is when things get real and money gets involved. We are still waiting on the final costs and to see if we get approved but it looks like things are heading in a good direction. Of course, that leaves us both scared of what will come if we move forward but anything worth doing will have some risk involved I suppose.
On the way back we got a call from my parents saying that they were visiting my aunt, who just happened to live in between our drive home. She was celebrating with family for for 86th birthday. This is the same place where we had our large family reunion. She recently lost her husband and see,s to be doing well. Everett got to meet his cousin Olive ,who is pictured on my aunt’s lap, for the first time. It was fun catching up with some family.
This morning I woke up very stuffy and not feeling the best. I know it is just sinus issues that are making me feel like I’m swimming in my own head but it does make it hard to concentrate haha. I’m going to try my best not to get sick, and stick it out.
That is all for me, I hope you had a great weekend, and I’ll see you tomorrow! (Unless I do in fact get sick haha) 😀 😀
