Hey Yall! Frannycakes had a busy day today. Julianne informed us last Sunday that we had to have her moved out of her old apartment at school by 12:00 on Friday. After some thought, I decided that we would go on Thursday at lunch. She took half of a day off work and we headed up to school. We worked pretty steady bagging things to bring home and wash, things to move to the new apartment and things to throw away. We had to make three trips! Plus we had to clean her room and the bathroom. The same bathroom that she had not been in since school got out the first of June. The other girls had been using it and it was disgusting. It ranked right up there with some of the boys' bathrooms I have seen. But we cleaned it and got out of there.

We are going to paint the interior of Julianne's apartment. There is wallpaper up now. It is in a house that has been divided up into several different apartments. And the walls have wall paper on the. But we have gotten permission to paint it. And it will look better.

I picked up the daybed that I had purchased last Saturday at Pier 1. Guess what? I don't think it will fit in the living room area. So my plan was to hurry and finish moving then drive back to Augusta and try and return it. Well, you see, it is hanging out the back of the truck. Two very big boxes. And guess what happened? It started raining and the boxes got wet. Boogers. Julianne said she is going to try it in her room for her bed. If she ended up not wanting it, I think I can sell it on Craigslist. I got it half price, so I think it will sell fast. She said she thinks I am meant to have this bed.

I guess that is all my news. Thank you for keeping Scottie and his family in your prayers.

Don't ya just love all the sacrifices we make for our college kids? My daughter was the worst, every move she made, she left various big items (like a mattress set) rather then move it. Are you painting over the wallpaper or stripping? Stripping it is not fun.
Have fun and take some pics!

Hi Fran,

Sorry I haven't been by to visit more but it sounds like you are as busy as I am, Hope you are doing well and I think after the summer is over things will slow down around here. LOL One can only hope.
