Here We Go AGAIN...LOL

Monday, May 17, 2010

Yep. We're definitely moving again-- and what timing, huh? LOL

There are a few places I've been eyeing... today DH is taking me house hunting in earnest. Nothing like leaving it for the last minute, is there? That's kind of how he is, though-- his business comes first, and then he 'gets around to' actually living! One of the things I've always loved about him is the sense of spontaneity he brings with him... LOL

We were going to move by Tuesday this week, but we have 'til Friday now... which gives us a bit more time, but it also means that we'll be packing and unpacking directly into the surgery prep schedule: special diet, that nasty 'fake citrus' yuck that I have to drink so I can spend all night in the bathroom...! LOL We get to stop at the pharmacy while we're out and about today to pick it up. Hm. LOL

In case the settlement is not here today (is it EVER when you need it? I'm working on getting the Universe in line with my wants...LOL) I have a friend who is calling us today to let us know if he can loan us enough for the down payment, and I can pay him back--with interest, of course, he's a business man!-- when the money does get here. Plus, I can actually pay off the house if things work the way I hope.

I'll be in the hospital for at least 5 days, but I have no clue what I'm going to wear when I come home. Pants, especially jeans, are not an option! LOL Guess I'll have to beg, borrow or buy a few dresses... something LOOSE! LOL

I'm also still wondering how I can stay at home the first few weeks. I haven't come up with anyone, family is too far away, and the only friends I have who might be able to are either in Mexico or on the east coast or something... DH is going to be around especially in the evenings, but he needs to be taking care of his business too. He's thinking he might be able to hire a part-timer to do some of the outside work and installs etc for him so he can be there for me... it means giving up part of the profits on the deals as they close... that's a really big sacrifice, though, and will cut in to our expendible income at a time when we really need it. We're going to talk about it some more, when he gets up. (It's only 5:30 and he isn't big on mornings...LOL)

I'm doing those great ab exercises...

I like that they are intentionally meant to be done in small spurts throughout the day. The suggestion is doing sets of 100, five times a day, and working up to a total of 1000--but there is NO WAY! That would be like doing that many crunches-- with the FMS and lupus, I'd be out for the count in one set! LOL

Get this: I'm up to about five sets of 20, and ouch, is my tummy feeling it this morning! LOL

SMASHY1, from one of my teams, was asking me about it, so if anyone (especially you ladies out there...LOL) is interested, here's a link:


I'm getting a bit hungry now, and it's going to be a long day. Guess I'll go get breakfast so I can do a no-no and munch while I'm doing the rest of my email. It may be the last chance I get for a while!


That's one thing I'm going to do when the money does get here--my own PC, maybe a laptop, and a WiFi-- so I could post even from bed! LOL

I don't know if today will be my last post until afterward, but just in case--

emoticonI'll be back!

    Well, the move can be a good thing and a bad thing... there is the whole packing/unpacking part, which is generally not fun... plus the actually lifting & carrying which is even less fun... but honestly, like VXWALL1942 said... you don't really have time to worry about the surgery anymore! (ya, I know, it will probably sneak in there somehow, but at least you will be busy and distracted as much as possible) Also, I always love a new house!! hehe it gives me an opportunity to clean, cull, and organize. I am actually also in the midst of packing and moving. So I completely feel you on the moving thing.

    Hopefully you and your DH will be able to find a good compromise for you to not be home alone during your recovery. Like VXWALL1942 said, if you go to church check with them.

    Dearest Kathy - you do manage to keep life exciting. The move is timed to eliminate any time for you to stress over the surgery. Take care of you. You are in my thoughts and prayers. When you're out for a bit I always miss you. I'll be watching for you to return. Best of luck with your post-op period. Maybe the hospital can recommend someone to be an aide for a bit, or maybe if you have a church you can see if they have someone, or maybe Sr Svcs (stop that laughing right now!) has a volunteer who could help. There actually are 'grammas' who really enjoy helping out sometimes. Thinking of ways for DH to be out doing what he does best. Hugs my friend!
