I am between right now--between two times, between two houses, between school and vacation (it's spring break at the college, but not at the U). This house is emptying; the other is beginning to fill. Already it doesn't echo the way it did. The shelves in the pantry, though it still needs to be fixed, are stocked with cans and boxes from the pantry here. The drawers in the bedroom are almost full. There are now new sheets and a matching coverlet on the bed.
We figured that the new mattress, meant to shield us from the hard slats of a bed without a box spring, is too big to accommodate the sheets we have now, which are old and shrunken from many washings. I will have to buy some more. Steinmart! I hope they have a coupon this weekend. If not, it'll have to wait till they do.
Today after yoga, the neighbor, who is out of work, will take me to the consignment store for rugs and whatever other little odds and ends I can get there. I will pay him for that. I'm not sure how much is fair.
