after Santa arrived early yesterday. My folks are downsizing and we got a big batch of furniture and household goods shipped to us, which arrived yesterday. So most of this week has been prepping the house for four new (old) pieces of furniture, and four boxes’ worth of kitchen goods, and three area rugs. It was like a mini-moving day. Delivery was delayed by bad weather for the driver, but we managed to hook up later in the afternoon and get everything unloaded OK. Last night and today I’ve been getting everything put away. Tiring work and I can feel it in my back tonight, but it’s nice to have this stuff here. We’re the only ones in the family who are on the DR path and they have decided we must be broke, because we’re not buying goodies for ourselves lately. So they’re treating this as one part Christmas gift and one part charity. We’re just pleased to have these pieces of furniture that I grew up with. Pieces of home and family. A perfect Christmas present.
