It will be our 39th wedding anniversary. I know this with certainty because not only is it etched in my brain...but my health insurance carrier (for the last 30 years) has decided that Mr. Biblioblog and I must prove that we are married. Legally. So, I opened the firesafe and what did I find? Not my marriage certificate. It was missing. I looked in all the usual places but could not find it.
The insurance company said "Too bad for you and Mr. Biblioblog. If you don't produce the document we will NOT cover Mr. B." Actually, they were far nicer than that, but still conveyed the message that the certificate was required. So, I sent off for a certified, official, embossed, special marriage certificate to avoid further fruitless negotiations with this company.
May 23rd is also the day that the buyer of our house wants to close. Yes, we sold our house! It must still go through all the inspections and paperwork and various details...but it sold and to someone who will value it as we have. It sold in approximately 2 weeks for a price close to the list price. Now I'll have to change the banner at the top of my blog-that really is the view out my front window. For the next few weeks.
In the next few weeks I'll be pretty busy with packing the rest of our belongings, and organizing transport for Big Nick, and finishing my VERY long to do list. The house trim will be freshly painted, the old cement stairs repaired and painted, and the second floor windows washed. I'm sure there is more...but for now I want to concentrate on sewing a new dress for my new home in Tucson. I have some gorgeous brown, black and taupe stretch cotton in a bold graphic print for a semi fitted sundress using B5450. I also have 3 yards of a very pretty gray/lilac abstract print which I am going to use for V1220.
