Today was a long day. I was out of the house at 10 and didn't get back until 8. There was banking to do. Tax returns had to go to the post office. I spent some time in the store trying to unpack boxes. Anyone who comes tomorrow will think I am lying because it is a disaster. Jane is coming in for a bit tomorrow so hopefully we can get it somewhat straightened. Then I went to help Beth for a few hours. I kind of owed her for the help she gave me on the weekend. Dinner with my parents and then furniture shopping. We bought their bedroom furniture, coffee tables for the living room and dining room table and chairs. All from Urban Barn. I am very jealous. Now it's rest time. If I keep working in front of the computer I will never get to sleep tonight. My knitting and Top Chef is calling me.
