Packing machines and 10 Good Things on a Monday 2/21

On Saturday, Scotty got a call from our realtor. We had been waiting... patiently sometimes, and not so patiently others... during the week while we waited to hear something from our credit union. She let us know that everything looks spot-on, and our closing date is expected to be the 28th of February. And when Scotty mentioned how antsy I am to pack, she said the magic words: "go ahead and pack!"

So of course we immediately drove to Office Max and picked up some boxes. Packing has not gone as quickly as I would like because we are both getting over an illness (probably a cold) that knocked us on our butts last week, but it's getting there. I just have to turn a blind eye to the walk-in closet in this bedroom, which looks more like I have been experimenting with contained hurricanes.

(Even though I say packing is slow, Scotty calls me a "little packing machine." What can I say? I like projects.)

So. On Monday, a week from today, we could have the keys. I am so excited. I can't wait.

With that, I will distract myself with this week's 10 Good Things on a Monday. Taking the prompt from the blog this time. Kind of.

5 Things to Do on a Sunny Day

1. Visit the Boyce Thompson Arboretum (one of my favorite places in the world to simply go and relax and enjoy the quiet)
2. Jump in the pool with the dogs
3. Eat ice cream
4. Buy chocolate bars from the grocery store and immediately stick them in the fridge upon coming home
5. Look for shapes in the clouds

It's funny that this prompt came up today. I live in Arizona, which is sunny almost all of the time - except today, which is cold and dreary and gray. Considering how often cozy days like this come around, I love them - so I am going to complete this 10 things with 5 Things to Do on a Rainy Day.

5 Things to Do on a Rainy Day

1. Eat soup or chili
2. Curl up under a blanket or two with a book or a movie (in my case, Monsters, Inc. and the Chaos Walking trilogy)
3. Forget it's rainy when you go outside to crush some soda cans and freeze your feet
4. Eat ice cream
5. Watch the raindrops in the car window

  1. This is a really awesome list! I love how you split up the good things between sunny and rainy days, and you mentioned the best things to do on those days, I totally love almost all of the stuff you listed here.

    I also like going out on rainy days and swimming in the pool :D

    Thank you for sharing your good things. Have a great week!
