Finally things have settled down and I'll do my best to hit the high points.
1. We have a new doctor for Dave who is super wonderful and has set up a great new procedure to administer meds to him thru a pump in his 'gut'. This requires surgery in Nashville at Vanderbilt. Fancy. Expensive. We'll wait until after the move for this.
2. I had a mammogram and was called back for a second look. Eek. Turned out to be nothing but a bad scan. I am FINE.
3. I had a blurry spot in my right eye and was sent to the ophthalmologist, for a consult. He said it might fix itself. I am to return in a couple of weeks. If it doesn't fix itself, the surgery is quick and 95% successful. Eek again.
4. We have been moving stuff into the garage in anticipation of downsizing, and yesterday Goodwill came and took our two old fart chairs and ottomans, a twin bed and mattress, a cabinet on wheels, a chest of drawers, a folding table, two bookcases, a lawn roller, three lawn chairs and an old golf bag and clubs. I didn't shed a tear.
pics are here. It is so very exciting and it looks like we'll close at the end of March. So FAST!!! My studio is wonderful and the big storage closet is going to fit everything I have so the space in the room will feel just as large as my current space.
Then of course, there is the move...I am not doing any heavy lifting this time. I swear. And I am promising myself to hire a cleaning crew to get this house ready for selling. O boy.
