Instead of synopsis revising.

I meant to spend the day, or at least part of it, working on my Taste of Magic synopsis. Instead, I went through my contracts file and sent out two stories whose reprint rights are free. Hey, at least I'm submitting!

Also, I mowed the lawn, got the oil changed in my car, and hiked several miles on a very boring trail out at Clear Creek. Up for tomorrow: furniture moving, since my mom is getting a new couch and it may need to come in through the window. Gawd help us all.

I worked for many years in the family upholstery business and the only time I took a lounge suite through a window, was because we couldn't get it up a spiral stair case to the second floor - that was a fun experience.

Fortunately, Mom's got two guys coming in to do the lifting-through-the-window part. I just need to help her basically empty the living room of everything breakable, plus move the little loveseat upstairs to my bedroom, where I will love it and cherish it. But that means moving the ugly wing chair currently in my room, which is going out to the shed. Not looking forward to all this, but at least I don't have to lift anything through the window.

Oh, and the best part is, the windows may be too small. In which case, I guess she sends the couch back.

We once bought a couch that didn't fit in the door. Luckily the window came out easy enough. We also had a couch to get it into a basement I had to take the stairs out, loads of fun that day. Sound like you had a productive day regardless so enjoy it. It will probably rain this weekend anyway.

Yikes, I can't imagine having to take out stairs to move anything. I'm not real happy about having to move the chair in my room, and I don't even like it.

My, you are a busy bee. Good luck with the couch.

The living room is more or less empty, with all the furniture and things piled in other rooms. If those guys don't get here soon with the couch, we're all going to go insane here, cats and all.
