VALLEY OF THE SUN RETREAT Feb 14-16 2020   News and Announcements

Started 10/31/19 by KSCarolyn; 73372 views.

You're right; I currently just have one. She'd said she was going to move at the beginning of the summer. SO I saw that the other posted on FB she needed a roommate in June...she was looking to move. I approached her and started talking to her. Well, then she had troubles with her roomie and wants to move immediately and my current roomie isn't excited about it. She finally came home and said I could do what I needed to do. She asked if it would change her rent. I said no, cause she would still have the whole master and bath and wouldn’t be losing space. She just asked if I would tell her when this was going to happen.

I have the feeling she’ll put in her notice immediately when I tell her/if I tell her Tina’s moving in. But the thing where I invited T to come stay a couple days last weekend was what was really bothering her most.She thought I didn't trust her while I was out of town...(really?! You live in my house! If I didn't trust you, you wouldn't be there!) So anyway, I told Tina she could move in early but it'd be to the sunroom and she'd keep her cat out there. She's thinking about it. ¯\_(?)_/¯ I"m not culpable for everyone's feelings. I am just trying to take care of everyone, and that includes me. I need a roomie right now to pay back what I've spent on the house.

I think I already fixed it.

I won't use those plugs again!!  But it was nice they gave us lamps this year.

I think someone had asked me for the pattern to the organizer that I made for the challenge. One word of caution though, they just say to use “fusible fleece” and I recommend you use something more drapey than what I did. It was almost impossible to turn this thing inside out just prior to the final step because the product I used was too stiff !

As we prepare to close the thread (awaiting Carolyn's instrux) I wanted to say that I've already started my pile for next year's retreat! I bought a MANUAL luggage scale to donate to the cause. No more pesky batteries!

Thanks my luggage was 5 pounds over and I could have fixed that at retreat by transferring stuff to my other bag.

I was ready and willing to shift things if needed to the duffle bag, but they let me slide at 1.5 lbs over 50 this time.

I love Southwest, they have a scale before check in, so you can check your weight and adjust before checking in!

That is what I did. I just took a bag out of the big one and carried it on. There was a moment when I was heading to security wondering if there might be a pair of sissors in the bag but it was all good.
