A Day of Rest

Oh, I'm achy today. I took a loan of "stuff" to Goodwill, carried another load downstairs from the sewing room and took a load for Barbara. Today I rest to contemplate the presence of "angels". I see them everywhere and I am grateful for them.
*JoAnn and her friend, from Las Vegas, whom I met in the car dealershp waiting room. We went to breakfast using the shuttle and had a great time. When we got back, our cars were fixed. They helped me get really excited about the move.
* My dogs, Mollie and Maggie, who brought me a stick and reminded me that masking fluid can be applied with a twig.
*My friends Craig and Nancy, who call and take me out to breakfast, just when I need a friend.

Little Errands, All in a Row

Whew, I am making my lists and checking them twice. Yesterday I got my new glasses and went to the dentist. My teeth are sparkly clean and I can see. I recently got new glasses and I could not see out of them clearly. The reason was that they did not have a big enough frame to get the near, mid and far range into the lense. So, I had to go back to a larger frame. So much for styling. I still have to go to the BMV and get my registration renewed on my van. I expire on April 15 and move on April 21. So, they are going to give me a temp registration to get me there so I can register in NV.

23 days until I move to Vegas! Now I'm getting excited! DH is coming home next Friday so that will make the wait easier. I still have a lot of cleaning to do so my days are busy. Today my realtor is taking me out to lunch. That will be a nice break.

My 63rd Birthday

Two of my sisters (Barbara and Patricia) took me to a wonderful Italian restaurant for my birthday. That's me in the middle. We had a great time. We ate too much and forgave ourselves almost instantly. DH is in Las Vegas at his new job and I will be joining him soon. My sisters made this a memorable birthday. Thank you Pat and Barbara!

Be Creative in All that You Do

I woke up this morning feeling like I was at a standstill with my creativity. In the last six months my DH lost his job, my mom had a stroke, My sister broke her leg, My DH found a job, we sold the house in Indiana and bought a house in Las Vegas. No wonder my muse left the building screaming and frantically running for cover! No that it has all settled down, I sit here and wait to move. I have learned that I AM the master of my thoughts. If I say positive things to myself, I feel okay. Today I will make the most of this day.

Groundhog day

Today they come and do the house inspection in IN house and do the appraisal. After that, it's wait until April 21 to close on the house and move. I'm having a lot of days that are the same as the last. I miss DH, I'm mourning the loss of my home and friends in IN and I'm excited about the new home in Las Vegas. I took Maggie and Mollie to the groomers this morning and I have to be out of the house for 3 hours so that they can inspect and appraise. I've tried to paint but I am not doing very well. My state of mind has something to do with it. The interest rate dropped over the weekend just in time for the new house loan. Yea! DH is coming home this Thursday for Easter and that will make it better. Michele and Todd and children are also coming and I can cook for and hug my family. That makes me happy.

Viva Las Vegas

In the last week, we have sold our home in Indiana and bought a house in Las Vegas, NV. We will be living in Summerlin, a planned community SW of Las Vegas. I am so glad to be not showing the house anymore. One week was enough for me. Now I sort, clean and get ready for the movers. I have burned up two shop vacs and I'm working on the third. I have been painting a little but I'm not pleased with what I'm doing. Maybe the stress is effecting me. DH is already in NV and I miss him terribly. Spring has been trying to arrive her in IN and my spring headache has arrived along with it. I should be moving into my new home by May 1st. Yea!
