I am in a Candlewood Suites in Nogales, AZ. This was scheduled back when I was working, and before the moving all got into full swing. I have a bunch of reward points with IHG, and they now expire. I had to do something to activate the account before May 1. This hotel was on super sale points, so I came down here for a couple of nights to reset the time clock on the rewards program. I had few expectations. However, so far I am impressed. It is much prettier down here than I expected, not the dry brown desert I'm used to. There are a few places I'll go explore tomorrow.
With much help from Favorite Neighbor's Son and DIL and another neighbor in the park we got Mom's furniture that she is keeping into the storage unit. It is even stacked up enough that there should be room for most, if not all, of my stuff in the other half. They worked their backsides off. I felt basically useless as my back won't let me pick up much. I am so happy to have that done. God bless them, is all I can say. We will go out to the Organ Stop for pizza and organ music on Sunday night as a token of our appreciation, and a goodbye for now, as they will all leave for MN on Monday morning.
The selling of furniture to Mesa Auction was a bust. They gave Mom a token amount for her washer and dryer, and she basically had them just take the rest of what she didn't want. I was offered $100 for my stuff, which included the antiques. I declined. My IKEA chair and nice baker's rack was worth that much. Even going pennies on the dollar. So, I still have furniture to get rid of.
Mom is headed up to Payson for the weekend. Someone emailed and wants to see her mobile on Sunday afternoon. Also, a neighbor who is temporarily living in a 5th wheel next to her is interested in buying her place, so it looks as if she will get something for her place. Not near what she has into it, but something.
Off so my room to check out the tourist info for the places around here. I'm in the business center of the hotel now. I didn't even bring a computer other than my smartphone.
