A Few Changes and Updates

Things are changing a bit around here.  My daughter and her family are moving out and getting a
Gary and Midge 
three-bedroom apartment for their family. This makes me happy as now the grandkids will each have their own bedroom. One is a pre-teen boy and a 7-year-old gabby girl.  They definitely need their own room.

I will miss seeing the kiddos daily but it is time for them to move on.  Truth be told, I am okay with it.  Currently, we are in a semi-state of chaos as boxes are being packed, toys are being evaluated to see if they are going with or going to the trash. There is also school shopping to get done before the move, even if it ends up being virtual, the kiddos need new clothes and school supplies.

My daughter has picked up a few extra shifts at the hospital to help with moving expenses so her time is limited to get things done.  We also have our granddaughter's 7th birthday to plan the first week of August. It will be here because we have a yard and pool for whoever wants to come over and social distance with us.

My physical therapy has been going pretty good.  The exercises seem to be improving my range of motion and strength. The pain after the therapy does me in for a bit but a cold pack and ibuprofen help with that.  I have been doing the home exercises as well.  The last thing I want is to have surgery. 

When all the dust settles after the kids move out, I can finish the painting of my bedroom and start the living room. Before the end of the year, we are going to purchase new living room furniture.  What we have now is a hodgepodge of stuff and is wearing out so, comfortable it is not. 


How was your week?

    1. I did not realize you are scheduled for Physical Therapy. Yes, I will miss the kiddos but they are only a few miles away.

  2. We had a good week here. Cleaned out the closet and have it all neat and tidy. I know you'll miss your grandchildren, but it will be good for them to have their own bedroom, like you said. :)

  3. As much as you love having the kids there you will all benefit from the space and distance. Take that therapy seriously as much as it hurts it will help in the long run.

    1. I'd much rather endure therapy than experience another surgery so I am working extra hard on making it successful! Yes, the kiddos will be missed but I miss having my house to ourselves. Are we ever happy?lol

  4. Happy to hear that the exercises are helping you.

    Please do not throw any toys in the trash until you've checked it out online. You'll be surprised at how much money toys can bring.
