Thanks. It has been fun to find someone that I did click with and we've laughed our butts off just packing boxes. Now that's a fun person that you can do a real chore with like that and still have fun while doing it.Originally Posted by ArchieComic Fan;2835092;
Well like me, she lost both her parents several years ago, so she has all the china, furniture, linens, knick knacks, etc. that belonged to them and all the stuff of her own, so she's really trying to wean through stuff and narrow it down. She told me she's had the stand mixer probably 20 years and usually uses it once a year, so she was happy for me to have it. I just have to make cheese straws for her occasionally.
And as she has 2 daughters and inherited china and crystal, most of it is being packed up for storage to go to her daughter's when they get married.
So many people have helped me move in the past, that I feel like I'm paying it forward by helping her. I tried and tried to pay her for the mixer and stuff, but she wouldn't let me.
