I wish I would have had somebody here yesterday to shovel the snow, luckily it was light and fluffy and I have a small front porch and sidewalk so I did that my self, as we only had around 3 inches or so, maybe 4inches. The lower back does not take the snow very well I just pushed it around and did no lifting, and it still wore me out and made me short of breath! The Drive way is another story, I would not even attempt that! But instead of hiring someone to do the driveway, I just drove the car back and forth, up and down the driveway till I got it all packed down hard. But then the late yesterday the wind picked up and started blowing the snow all over, and it cleared part of my driveway but completely covered the sidewalk again! I am really begining to hate winter! Tomorrow a new realtor comes to look at the house, and me and the ex ( yes she will be here to!) will talk with him and deside if we want to sign and have him give it a try to get it sold!
To answer your question Pebbles I do not want to stay in the area, I am at. I have no family here, and I really want to be closer to a military base, preferably an Air Force base. Since I am retired AF, I would like to use my retirement benefits, such as being able to use the BX and Commissary. especially the commissary, groceries are so much cheaper at the commissaries. Also I am I can take space A available flights to travel. The biggest hang up besides selling the house, is trying to find a pain doctor that is even half a good as the one I have now! That worries me, allot! I really do have a good pain doctor, he does so much more than just treat my pain, orders test, refers me to specialist, and as I had mentioned before he had even got me a super counselor, that took medicare and tricare! He treats the (Whole Person) I know I am spoiled, and as I said if any thing really worries me about moving, finding a new pain management doctor is right at the top of the list!
I really need to be checking places out though, and now that I am on the mend, I can start doing that!
