  1. I was thrilled that "Glee" won!! Avatar, too. And you are absolutely right about Ricky Gervais. Brutally funny.
  2. If you have time for a garage sale, do that by all means! One man's trash and all that!! And for items you don't sell: Goodwill is your FRIEND!!! Take the unsold items there rather than shoving them back in the closet. Use the next two months to organize and clean. Moving is NOT easy no matter what, IMO. We sold our house to the very first people who went thru three years ago and moved out of state. Within a year, we realized that was a mistake and moved back!! We were lucky to find a buyer that time as real estate wasn't moving as quickly. If you watch any of the HGTV shows about moving, you'll know that decluttering and making everything shine is very important to a faster sale. It does seem to be true that prospective buyers don't want to see all your personal photos and "stuff" that make a home yours. Good luck with the sale and the move. It's a LOT of work but can be very rewarding, too.
  3. This is a very difficult thing to become involved in. She's an adult who should be able to look out for herself. If you try to intervene, she may jump to her husband's defense and treat you as though you're the troublemaker. To complicate matters, it sounds as if she doesn't live nearby so you don't see firsthand what is going on--not that you might see it even if you do live nearby as people certainly can and do act much differently when no one else is around. IMO, no one has the right to tell a spouse where s/he can go and with whom or monitor phone call times, etc. etc. Sounds like a pattern that probably started early on in the marriage and your friend has enabled the behavior by not standing up for herself. Sadly, I don't see how you can do much of anything. Calling when her husband is not there is probably the most you can do. Ask yourself how involved you want to be in this and what steps you can realistically take and go from there. Or leave it be. Back to lurkdom now :-). Carol
