Giveaway - A Month of Giveaways.....

Hey kids - it is me - back in the blogging world. I have been absent - a neglectful blogger. One of the reasons for not blogging was that with all the changes going on, I knew that everything I wrote would be too self-absorbed worrying prevarication. And you would hate that, right?

Here is the short version - we sold the house that I have lived in for almost 21 years. We might have sold prematurely in that we didn't know where we would live or what we would do. And - after months of looking at new places, I can announce that..........we still don't know where we will live or what we will do. Never mind....we are leaving this house this month. We have rented an apartment and we will continue to.....figure out where we want to live and what we will do.

Last night was the last party in our home. Friends from Toronto were out skiing at Whistler and they came to dinner here (for Miguel's Mexican food). My family was all here for the holidays. So up until today, we have barely started to pack. But today the packing starts in full force.

Over the years, I have collected things for the house. When we were getting the house ready for sale, we took boxes and boxes of collectibles and books to the Salvation Army. I have sold some things on craiglist and I am delighted to know that people appreciate when things are offered for free on craigslist. As I have started packing, I realize that even more stuff needs to be discarded. And...I thought it might be fun to see how much stuff can be shared with my blogging friends...... is the plan. Call this the "Who wants My Stuff?" Project. Every day I will post something I have discovered in my packing......If you want it, just leave a comment......If you are selected I will send it to you!

I am off to start packing - check in later today for the first "Who wants my Stuff" offering......
