I’ve been sticking with my strategy of pretending like the closing is imminent, and trying to do things that must get done prior to moving. And truly, it’s not really pretending, because the IRS lien is the only thing standing in the way, and once that’s settled, we will probably close the next day! So the closing IS actually imminent, we just don’t know the exact date.
The RV will have to be spic and span when it goes into storage. After almost two years of being lived in, it is NOT spic and span right now. Yesterday I tackled one of the two fridges, which looked like a science experiment had run amuck.
Since I am an undiagnosed ADDer (they didn’t have ADD when I was a kid!), I worked in little spurts. I threw out the dried up chives, out-of-date dips and old cream. When I ran across the crescent rolls, I stopped: “I meant to make pigs in a blanket for the kids on New Year’s Eve and I didn’t. Hmm, think I’ll do that right now.” Happily distracted, I wrapped dough around little sausages and popped them in the oven.
More cleaning and discarding. “Ooo, I’d better take the trash bags to the dumpster.” I bundled up and trekked over to the campground dumpster.
Back to cleaning out the fridge. DING. Time to check the sausages. “I think they need a few more minutes for the dough to brown.”
More cleaning – by this time, I am done with tossing the old stuff and I’m in the wipe down phase. “What IS this stuff stuck to the bottom of the fridge??”
DING. The pigs in a blanket are done. I remove them from the tray and cover them in foil to stay warm, ’til K and her friend swing by during their dog walking. I also pour waters for the girls.
What was I doing? Oh, yeah, back to wiping the fridge. The unknown substance seems to be glued to the bottom of the fridge. After a lot of elbow grease, it finally comes clean, and I decide to call it a night.
If I’m lucky, I’ll finish with the first fridge today, and start on the second. Once they’re both clean, there’s the matter of defrosting to take care of, don’t you think?
While we wait to close, I’m also working on our kitchen renovation dilemma…if I can find the photos I took at the house (which I think I loaded onto the other computer), I will share that with you tomorrow!
