Thank You all!
This is a great time to give you a little up-date. As most of you know the house sold, and we closed on the first of June, and I moved out. I actually lived in a hotel for about a week be for moving into a rental house. It is a complicated story, but the house I originally rented and signed a years lease for, .......well the renters violated the lease contract, and they kept changing the date I could get in, so the day I moved out of the house, I was without a place to live! Not a comfortable feeling to say the least! I managed to get another house to rent, and it even has a garage, but it is so tiny compared to what I had, and it is a good thing it has a garage, as it is filled with the stuff that I could not fit into the house. This place actually was a Godsend in disguise as I did not have to sign a lease, and the rent is cheaper and it is a little bigger than the other place and it has a garage. The big thing is no lease, so I do not have to worry about leaving when I find another place where it is warmer and near a military base. The really bad thing about the place is it was extremely dirty and I had to clean it if I wanted to move into it. The place was unbelieveable! Apparently there were some heavy smokers that lived in the place for many many years, and everything was coated with the residue! So I spent close to a week just cleaning before I started staying there, and had my stuff delivered! That has played havoc with my back and hips not to mention my neck! Anyway I am in the place and slowly unpacking the things I need to live on right now. Most of the stuff is going to remain packed, as I really do not plan on making this my home for all that long!
This coming week, I will be going to up to Chicago area for an MRI and of my lower back and hips, ( which by the way scares the day-lites out of me! because of the problems I have had with the last two or three MRI's with over heating!) I have talked to the doctors and MRI folks about it, and they assure me it will be OK and they will watch me closely! But I ..........................well we will see I guesss!!!! Anyway a day or two after that, I will have to go back up there and I see the surgeons, the hip surgeon again, I will see him first and then I have to drive a short way and go see the spine surgeon about my lower back. I am a little nervous about doing all this, but I know I need to get this taken car of!
As for my Birthday today, well...... I am going to work at getting my house in order a little more,( actually allot more!) and then I plan on going to town and treating my self to supper at the Lobster place, and then if I am up to it, posssibly seeing a movie, as there are a couple of them that release today that I kind of want to see! I really wanted to go up to see my daughter and her family, as they have 15 new born lambs now and a baby pig and a orphan calf they are bottle feeding, but I just could not make the drive right now.
I do Thank You all for the Birthday wishes, (I am the big "six" "O" today!)
Peace and Blessings to you all!
