I Just Might Have a Problem With Math

There might be something to what we used to call “new math.” That’s because I’m convinced that one plus one doesn’t always equal two.

Here’s the thing: Karl a/k/a The Duppster or Dupp and I got marred just over a week ago. Now we’re trying to merge two households of furniture, stuff and junk into one household of furniture, stuff and junk.

In other words, we’re trying to make one plus one equal one.

It just doesn’t work.

We had a back yard sale over the weekend. We need to have four or five more, but, gee, what a pain! We’ve also donated boxes and boxes of belongings and already have more boxed up to drop off.

Oh, and did I mention that some of the adult children are using us for storage? I’m not really complaining. I love my children and would do anything for them (within reason, of course.) Still, this is stuff that has to be moved and put somewhere. (Side note to Mom: Yes, I know, I have a few belongings still at your house!)

Trying to make one plus one equal only one isn’t the biggest problem, though.

Somehow, in this on-going two-week process of sorting, selling, shredding, donating, tossing, packing and moving, I have managed to lose or at least misplace the marriage license. And I’m not talking about a “keepsake” version. I’ve misplaced what needs to be signed and returned to the courthouse. I hope it’s just misplaced and not shredded.

We might not need that new math after all!

I hope you didn't shred your marriage license. I'll bet there is a remedy though. You can't be the first that has lost/shredded/misplaced or whatever else. You just can't be can you?

Have a terrific time merging. :)

I guess it's a good time to purge, to figure out what's really important and loved, and what's not.
We've lived in this same house now for 7 years, and I can feel things accumulating. It's hard to stop just stuffing things in the attic!

I admire you Sherry. And I bet you two haven't had a cross word yet.

Oh goodness! Wishing you well! with your 1+1=1 :o) And that you find your marriage license!

Blessings & Aloha!
