Moving on up to the Eastside

February 27th, 2011

I have taken pics and as soon as I find out where I put the camera I will post them.

The movers showed up at 8:15 and left at 11:15. Three hours. They where very nice, though I just found out they broke my desk. I will have to call tomorrow and make a claim. If that was the worst of the damage then I can deal (yes I am calm).

Rich spent the night Friday and helped me alot. Jnine, Lee, Robin, Mom, Dad, Gina and K all came over to help. Lee and Jnine got and installed blinds in the master bedroom for me. Robin became the unpacking task master. SHe really motivated us to move our butts. We thought that the garbage disposal did not work but Robin found the switch and it works great.

We found a pizza place close by that Jnine and Lee used to order from around 25 years go. It was deamed good by all and will be ordered again.

A big dent has been made putting everything away but it will take time.

Thank you Mom, Dad, Jeannine, Lee, Gina and everyone else for all of your help in getting to this point. I love you all and really appreciate it.

OMG!!!!! I am so excited and scared to death at the same time.

This afternoon I was given approval from my bank to close on the house. By law the earliest that I can close is Monday. So as soon as the lawyers schedule the close I will let you know.

Flowers and Sunny’s 3rd Birthday

September 13th, 2010

Hi all. Mom asked me to post some pictures of her many kinds of sunflowers. She wanted Pete to see the Orange Sunflower. I happen to like the rest and decided to share.

Also, not as big an event as Liz’s Birthday yesterday (hope you had a wonderful day). Sunny turns three today. I had a seminar to go to today so I stopped by yesterday to give him his gift. Yes I gave him a sock monkey, I thought N would appreciate it. This is how he was after Mom and I got back from Menards. We went to get a replacement strip for the floor between the living room and kitchen. Lee was nice enough to cut it to size for me due to me fear of circular saws (insert snickers here).

Also, Sunny no longer looks like a Redneck Yorkie Poo. A few weeks back he got into alot of burrs and Mom had to cut them from his hair. Poor puppy, He had bald spots all over himself. He actually looked kind of funny. :-)

Back Pain

April 9th, 2010

I am sitting in Starbucks while Rich is outside smoking and talking to a barrista. We aiting for Jnine to join us.

Last Saturday I strained my back while in Kohl’s ( not their fault). I finally went to a chiropractor Wednesday to have it looked at and he sent me for x-rays yesterday. It seems that I have serveral compressed disks and my spin is a bit out of alighnment. My right leg is about 5 cm shorter than the left (thanks Dad :-) ). I will have several more adjustments in the weeks to come.

Atlanta

February 21st, 2010

I am in Atlanta taking a class for work. The weather is beautiful right now. It was in the fifties today. I was going to try and go to the Georgia Aquarium before checking in for my class. Unfortunatly that didn’t happen. My flight left almost an hour late, so I would not have had enough time to see enough of it. Oh well, maybe next time.

I went down the block to a hamburger joint called The Varsity. It was ok, I would recommend the hot dog over the burger. The onion rings are great.

When I checked into the hotel the lady at the front desk recommeded Arby’s which is right next door. :-) I thanked her but said no thank you.

I may walk around some after class tomorrow evening. I’ll let you know what I find.
