And we are arriving close to the end. The end of the challenge, the end of my summer vacation. I report back in 15 days. My outline for my Nanowrit is not complete, the redecorating o my family is no where near complete. I’m going to Charleston for a short vacay and if there is money left over, I’m either going to buy the futon or curtains. I SHOULD buy curtains first – I hate when cars or buses come down the road, shining their lights in my family room. I’ve been working and unpacking my garage and it’s not near. I’ve unpacked box after box of books and all of my bookcases are now full


Please note, all of those shelves, save ONE are three deep!!


and I STILL have boxes of books and I have no where to put any more tall bookcases. I can probably put 2 or 3 short ones in my dining room and I’ve considered moving my couch in a foot and lining 3 short ones behind it, much like a sofa table. I fear, however, anything on top of them would become fodder for the cats.

I’ve resorted to this, for the time being…


Which, quite frankly, ain’t gonna fly! To make matters WORSE, I uncovered and unpacked several boxes of cross stitch patterns…


As well as 2 boxes and one milk crate of scrapbooking paraphernalia. Have NO idea where THAT”S going to go!

Seriously, I do NOT recall my habits being this bad!!!

Then again, I packed a box of rocks with packing peanuts, so there ya go!

Day 30 – Will anything ever replace RA in your esteem?

No. I mean, I’m sure the day will come when my fangirling dies away or I get lucky in the love department (won’t happen) He’s still my favorite actor and I think he’s the sexiest man on earth. Unless it’s discovered he’s a pedophile or an abusive person… naaaaaaaaah.

Here. Have some Richard.
