The clock is ticking…

I think I need it for my kitchen!

It seems we have a “bite” on my mom’s house. Hopefully that will go thru and I can check that off my list of things to do. And add 1000 other things to the list pertaining to the cleaning out, distributing and/or storing all the items from her house. I have dreaded that day. Almost as much as I have dreaded seeing someone else living in her house. But it is

You will do fine, alone on that train. I’m 49 as well. Just read the signs, ask if you need clarification and go and have a wonderful time!!



You’ll be fine on the underground Susan! It’s all well laid out with great signs to follow and there are people everywhere that are just there to help you and to answer questions. It will be a breeze and very exciting! Let go, let God. It will be wonderful!
