The Cardboard Continues

Okay, I'll be honest about this.....I thought I'd be finished with cardboard boxes by now, that we'd have Mom moved into the apartment and all squared away, and that we'd be leisurely making plans for an upcoming trip (more about that later).

As it happens, I still have some boxes in my bedroom, unpacked, and we don't have Mom moved in yet.  *sigh*  Everything is going well in the grand scheme, but at ground level seems to be moving at a snail's pace.

Hopefully we'll make some more progress this weekend.  Part of the problem is that Mom keeps cleaning up her "mess" as she packs.  Anyone who knows my Mom knows that her idea of a "mess" isn't really a mess.  I told her that a little clutter while you're packing and unpacking is just part of the process, but she keeps stopping to clean up.  *sigh again*  So, I just try to stay out of her way and let her do things her way.  I'm sure she won't have as much clean-up to do when she's finished as I had.  I just can't watch it.  *LOL*

Another part of the problem is getting all our help lined up.  Everyone's busy, and getting everyone in the same place at the same time (and factoring in the weird weather) is tricky.

Oh well.  It'll all come together.  And when it finally does it will be a huge relief!
