I feel like I haven't blogged in a long time. I've been VERY tired and to be honest, too tired to even THINK about typing. I've been coming home from work the last few days, taking a long nap, waking up for dinner (can't miss a meal!), and going back to bed. I have some neighbor updates though.
On Thursday evening when I was taking out my garbage, Jennie offered me a hanging basket. Very nice of her. I declined. She insisted. I stayed strong in my conviction to NOT receive ANYTHING else from her.
I woke up this morning and saw a new pile of "free stuff" in front of her house. Of course I took a picture (I'm just waiting for the day she catches me taking pictures of her "free stuff" piles!). This particular picture is of the hanging basket (that I turned down) and a plant.
Today, while I was cleaning out my garage (she inspired me to clean stuff up, I guess) Jennie came home from work. She immediately changed into 'grubby' clothes and started right up with yard work, tidying up her garage, etc.
I thought, "That's it ... it's time she tells me." So ... I said, "Man Jennie, you are doing some SERIOUS cleaning and yard work!"
And she said, "Well ... I'm selling."
THAT'S IT!!!!! I had built it up SO MUCH in my mind, that I was actually kinda disappointed when she told me. We talked a bit about her plans, where she's moving, etc. And then ... it was over. My game of "when is she going to tell me" was over. SAD!
I AM happy to report that Jennie is still offering me free stuff though. I think that may be my new game: "What will Jennie offer me next?"
Today, she offered me an (empty) wine box from Columbia Winery and a FREAKIN' piano. Like a HUGE, NICE piano. I don't play piano, but she said she'd be happy to donate it to my school. Isn't that so sweet!?!
Seriously though ... how many people get offered a FREE piano?
Here is a list of the things she's offered me so far:
4. Lawn Mower
5. Hanging Basket
7. Wine Box
I'm going to miss her so much.
As I type this ... there is a garden statue of a little girl on her curb.
I'll try to take a picture of it tomorrow morning.
