Hallelujah!! They have the utlities in to the new modular house. People can move out of the one we are to get into the new one. That means we can move the end of the month. Now I have to find out how I can negotiate out of the lease. I have done so many improvements that they need to pay me for. Maybe I'll just take them down and take them with me. I'm going to print out a list of everything I have brought. I quess I can't charge them for the cost of the labor I paid to have them put up.

The posting on mainstreambaptist from the Washington Post is very scary. How can our govement do business that way. Oh well the price they pay for hammers and toilet seat should give me some clue. They keep wanting my retirement money and social security money through more taxes that I paid tax on once.

I see Sen Fist is now on board for stem cell research, it is about time. Of course Tom Delay is still backing the president.

Michelle is going on an overnight camping trip with her daycare. I hope she doesn't decide she wants Dad to come after her when it gets dark.

Oh well, just another weekend of packing hubby is getting hemed in with all the boxes. Hubby is really out of it today. I showed him a dinning table and chairs similar to ours that are still in storeage at P. I was trying to show him how much they wanted for it. He thought I was wanting to buy it. He didn't remember that we had one already. We only made it through half of the air conditioneed first money building. Both of us were having problems with our back. Next week is doctor week I hope to get some answers about my back. This moving and hauling boxes around is not helping. I may try to get in the hot tub when the sun goes down its 95 degrees out there and 6:00 pm.

July 28, 2005

Trying to recoup from a Michelle day yesterday. I love her to pieces but she weares me out. Remember when Billy wanted hats for the pans he was playing with. Well, Michelle did another one yesterday. We went to mail the computer back to P, I stopped to buy KFC for lunch. Michelle wanted to make sure I got potatoe sauce. I didn't know what she meant until I started to fix her plate and discovered she wanted gravy for her potatoes. Make sense to her it was sauce for the potatoes. Grandma was just slow on the uptake.

I seem to be staying ahead of the box problem, I get more empty ones before I have the present ones packed. Only packed two boxes yesterday Michelle wanted to help too much. Try and get some more packed today.

Silly kitty loves rubber bands, I keep finding them all over the floor so I started putting them in a basket on the counter. Now I find she gets up on the counter and helps herself too them. Michelle got in her face yesterday and she hissed at her. I don't know why she doesn't like Michelle. Michelle wants to get her hands on her in the worse way.

Hubby is really losing it he wanted to know why the cat was getting in the kitty litter box the other day. He has an appointment with ALZ doctor next week, in fact next week is doctor week. Massages on Tuesday, Wednesday he has dentist. Thursday ALZ doctor and we both have primary care appointments on Friday. So Monday we have to nail down where we are going to move. Just a million more boxes to pack.

July 27 2005

Today is a Michelle day. P is working so Michelle arrived at 6:00 am the first I knew was the TV going on full blast. She watched TV until almost 8:00 and then went to sleep for over an hour. We have sure missed her. P enrolled her in kindergarten yesterday. She will be going to Canton public schools which costs 350.00 a semester as she is out of district. All this means I will be running the school bus to and from school some.

I'm still packing the living room is mushrooming boxes. I had to go buy more sealing tape yesterday and of course Home Depot didn't have the kind that doesn't stick to its self, so I did myself a favor and bought masking tape . That worked last time we moved, was it just a year ago that we moved from Albuquerque. It seems like a million years ago, surely we have been in horrible apartment for a million years. I am trying very hard to not call the lakeside people to see if they are really going to have that house ready for us. If they haven't started by the f irst of August we are going to look for something else. Almost all of the dishes are packed and I've started on the pots and pans, all the tupperware and plastic are packed. All the books and knik kacks are packed. Most of the office is packed, just leaving out files and computer and one printer. I packed two large suitcases of winter clothes the other day, still have lots of clothes to go. We may be sitting here with everything packed and no place to go. Everytime I go to look at rentals they all want you to move tomorrow.

Went to Fry's yesterday to return P computer. There is only a 15 day return policy on Fry's products. I had a hard time getting them to agree to exchange the computer have to mail it today. The return guy said he had only heard of two other computers that had our problem and that was some time ago. I can't say I believe him. We were going to buy a TV from them but I'm having second thoughts.

Well up and at them now.

July 22, 2005 h

We looked at houses to buy yesterday. Saw two houses that I really liked. We could afford both of them but the taxes on the expensive one are just outragous. One son says go for it and of course the other one is doom and gloom for the economy. I'm just afraid that if we buy a house in Canton we have it for life. The neighbor in the expensive house has 5 houses for sell in a small area. The White one that would be best has only 2 houses in a wide area for sell. I can't see that the market in Canton is very good, too many people are trying to get out. Something has to be the matter. It remains to be see if P can sell her house. It's been on the market a month and no one has looked at it.

Drove by the house on the lake that we have a deposit on. They have not started putting in the utilities. We have only 30 days before we are suppose to move. I can't see that they are ever going to get it done. We looked a little for another rental but there doesn't seem to be very much. Can't understand that 10 miles north there are lots of rentals and very few for sale. But Canton has loads of houses for sell and very few rentals? What is wrong with this picture?

It is kinda like who has a crystle ball. P doesn't know why I want so big a house. After this little apartment I can really use every single inch of 2,000 square feet. I quess I want too much. I want big closets, a large master bed room and a yard with trees, lots of trees.

One thing for buying is not having to move so many times, I am really tried of moving. I know we have too much stuff but I have got rid of so much and there is still too much, including all the stuff still in storage at P.

D had his surgery yesterdy he seems to be doing well. I can't image they let him come home the same day as his surgery. Michelle comes home tomorrow, we have missed her. We won't get to see her until Monday as D brother and family will be here over the weekend.

Hubby is getting very short on his memory. He didn't seem to remember us putting the deposit on the rental house. His blood sugar is too high not dangerous I quess but not in the ideal range. We did our shopping for the weekend so I quess we stay in and pack this weekend.

A very long day. Took P to Dallas for chemo. First we went to the support group, such nice group of women all of them a lot older than P. They are all facing this deadly cancer with various sucess. They all ask about Michelle and of course she is in south Texas with her cousins. D has surgery on Thursday so they thought Michelle would be better off having fun with her cousins. The chemo that P had the last month was not doing any good. They changed her chemo today and she had a terrible reaction, she began short of breath and all of a sudden her face enlarged and turned very red it was very life threating before they got it stopped. They gave her Benryll and some other stuff and just started the chemo again. We didn't get out of there until after 6:00 pm. It was so hard to see them give that horrible stuff again.

We left home at 9:00 this morning and got home tonight about 9:00 pm. Thank heavens she doesn't have to do that again until next month.

Raining again third day in a row. I wonder if we will loose power today. It won't do anygood to reset clocks until it stops power going out. Went to Kaufman this morning to a diabities meeting, hubby is not doing well with his dibities. Another reason to get a new doctor. Walked around Tangers for a little exercise, but boy was it how and humid.

I found this questionner on another blog and thought it was kind of fun try it.

Appetizer: What is your middle name? Would you change any of your names if you could? If so, what would you like to be called?

Salad: If you were a fashion designer, what fabrics, colors, and styles would you probably use the most?

Main Course: What is something that really frightens you, and can you trace it back to an event in your life?

Dessert: Where are you sitting right now? Name three things you can see at this moment.

try this it fun!

July 14, 2005

What a thunderstrom we had, lights were out for about an hour.

Started packing, I can't believe how many boxes its going to take to get all this stuff ready to move. It can't happen too soon, I'm going to miss some things. Walking to the mailbox is so much easier than going to a mail box. I'm not sure how I will survive washing dishes instead of a dish washer. Walking around this complex will be a lot easier than the ups and down of the hills in the other place. I can't wait to have a bed of my own and hopefully a A/C than works and doesn't get to 80 degrees before it comes on. I'm not sure about taking the cat another 200.00 for just the privilege of having a pet. The cat has some fun playing and jumping around, I really would miss her.

Hubby had trouble remembering where the batteries were, he was so worried about all the flashlights having new batteries. We have been here 6 months and he uses batteries like they were klenex and he couldn't remember where they were. He has been going over to the swimming pool every day by himself. I feel like it is good for him to do somethings on his own. The adult day care didn't work out for him here, he seems more content to just stay in the house with me. When we get moved maybe he will get outside more, I hope we don't have the problem of took much watering again. The yard at the other house looks like it needs some watering but Canton has received more rain than Terrell. I'm worried about the move, I don't know how it is going to effect him.

P and D are taking Michelle to Lake Jackson to spend some time with her cousins. I'm so glad Michelle has cousins her age and they get along so well together. She will be down there for a week while mom has chemo and dad has surgery

July 12, 2005

More doctors appointments yesterday , it just took all day with Michelle in tow. P worked yestday and I quess again today as I have not heard from her.

Its time to start packing boxes and I don't look foreward to that. Drove by the new house last night, it needs a back screen door so I may try to take this one. They haven't started any new work on the new house that need to be ready before we can move into the old one. I'm going to move the last few days of August so that we won't run into the Labor Day Weekend. I'm going to move then even if that house isn't available. Michelle needs to start school the middle of August and I need to be there to help see her to and from school. Also I need to be settle before D mother arrives the end of September, I'm not looking foreward to that event. I wonder if the kids are selling the house because of the problem of her and her thinking it is her house.

Hubby is doing fine, I finally got prescriptions for both of us yesterday I hope to have some new doctors before long.

I talked to Bilie the other days and she reminded me that changes like moving event that ALZ hubby has cause probems. I hope because he wants this move as much as I do that it won't bother him that much. He will miss the swimming pool but I understand they will be closing it labor day. I discovered yesterday that another renter is moving out in our same little group. They have moved her husband out of the nursing home and so they both have to relocate.

I'm now certain that my sleepness is related to the air conditioner. It gets so hot before the A/C comes on that I wake up sweating and have trouble going back to sleep before the A/C comes on. I hope the new houses A/C is better than this one.

Time to get in gear and got something done blogging is taking more of my time every day.

July 8,2005

P is off to Dallas again for chemo, Michelle is with us for the day. Oh well another day of cartoons won't hurt.

Now that the kids have come and gone its time to start packing. I have spent the last 6 months trying to pare down and squeeze everything into this small apartment and now I have to pack it all up again. I have just been reading some blogs on faith and I quess I don't have enough. I am scared to death to put in a 30 day notice here and not know when I can get into the house in Canton. It's going to be expensive to buy out of here and move and if we have to stay in a motel a few days it will get more expensive. But how will I handle the storeage of the furniture? If you can't read this it is because Michelle is laying on me.

We took the long way back from Canton yesterday and discovered a state park at the lake to the north of us I'd include the name but I can't spell it.

We stopped at Hamms Orchard and did they beautiful fruit. Lots of peaches, plums, strawberries, blueberries and two kinds of cherries. Sorry, we didn't find them before the kids were here. Frys's had a 4 page flyer on specials today, hubby through it away early glad he did I might have found something to buy. D was here and saw the boxes that P and L had brought computers on the 4th. He was disappointed as I was that we paid twice as much for our computers as P and L did.

Well, its non quess I ought to do something besides blog.
