Should Have Known....

Well as it turned out the people didn't want to see the house afterall. And on top of that, the lady we thought we might be able to rent to own from can't do it because of their situation.

What a great day. :(

House Showing!

The realtor called this afternoon...we have a showing tomorrow between 4:30 and 5:30! Yay! Working on getting things out of the girls room. Then will have to vacuum and dust. NOT a problem!

My aunt is flying in from Texas tomorrow to be able to see my dad. We never know how much longer he'll have and it would be great for him to be able to see her and her to see him. It's been many, many years since they've seen each other. I guess when mom asked dad what he thought about the prospect of seeing my aunt he said "it would be a dream come true" - well it will - tomorrow...he just doesn't know it yet! He goes for an MRI tomorrow. He's having difficulty with his tongue and chewing. I guess it's all part of the progression of the disease. Very very sad. Hoping to get up to see my aunt while she's here - hopefully Thursday.

Ok, off to work on the stuff to take out to the garage!

As requested....

Hi ya'll! I haven't updated lately because we've been busy. We have our house listed on the market and are looking at places to rent or on a land contract right now. We had a house all squared away to rent on a lake, but after getting in there to do some cleaning and such, it has black mold in the bathroom and the washing machine/dryer area. So we packed up everything we had taken over and moved it all back home. The guy has been notified and because we hadn't signed a lease yet, he has to return our 1st month's rent we paid in advance due to an agreement he wrote up and we both signed.

My dad had an appt with a neurologist the other day. She is having him put on a different med, which will increase some and weaned off other meds. She is willing to see him again, which is a good thing. He is scheduled for an MRI next week to see what his brain activity is showing. He is still at the dementia care center near my mom. I think he'll be there for a while, if not permanent. It's still very difficult for all of us, especially my mom.

Well, I better get back to working in MY house....hope you all have a great Memorial Day weekend!

Happy Mother's Day!

I wanted to get that out of the way because I know I won't be posting tomorrow!

We are heading up to visit my dad today and then onto my neice's b-day party. Should be a fun day although Joe isn't going because he's working today. He needs the money, so sometimes you just have to sacrifice.

Tomorrow will be a day of packing. Our house gets listed on Monday and the realtors have to come back & get pics of the outside & inside....so there is MUCH to be done here! *sigh* BUT we ARE moving forward...hopefully onto bigger & better things.

So I ask for prayers....good thoughts...positive vibes to be sent our way for all the things going on. I appreciate them tremendously!

Ok...off like a dirty shirt!
