Moving date and such

Moving date is "officially" February 11 because that's when I can get the most help. That's fine with me because it gives me more time to go back in and clean up where we are vacating. And, I don't have to worry about getting "everything" because I can come back. In fact, I'm actually going to get possession as early as February 1 (if I want it, but it's a matter of money) so I'll probably see if I can take possession on the 6th.

I have never moved anywhere this quickly before. I don't have boxes. I don't have any "plans" made up. No lists. No "gotta do this" things written down. I'm flying by the seat of my pants. So new for me. LOL!

Ron's doctor had the nurse draw blood again last night. His BUN is very wacky but the potassium is starting to come down a bit. I got to work from home today because we were expecting to hear from the doctor's office. He's feeling better today than he was yesterday, so that's good. Lots of people are praying for him and we're grateful.

Our friend, Chuck, offered us a queen bed (mattress only) and I think I found a frame with captain's drawers and a headboard with storage (which we need for Ron's bi-pap machine) for $400. She'll hold it until we move and I think I can squeeze out enough money from my paycheck and Ron's retirement check to buy it. If not, then we'll figure something else out. Chuck can bring us the mattress any time and we can put it on the floor. Ron can't get up off the floor, but he could use the twin bed until we can get the rest of the bed.

Next on the list is a washer and dryer. I can live without one, but hauling clothes out in the winter would not be fun. There are plenty of used ones on Craigslist so I'm confident that by March I'll be able to swing a set. After that, we have a small matter of seating. LOL - as in "none" except for Ron's recliner and my recliner. Our oldest daughter has a sofa that we can buy (it was new in August for $800) for $400 and she will let me put it in "lay-away" at her house. So, by the end of April or March, we should have a bed, sofa, and washer/dryer. LOL - I can always hope!

And, how has your week been going???

I'm going to try to cross my toes as well as fingers for you. I would say that my week is JUST FINE. I think I would say that if it weren't just now. You have been and are going through so much. I'm hoping you can have your BED at least.

Well, you seem to have things very nicely worked out there my friend. Ron is in my prayers too. Good that you have a moving date, and also good that you will be able to do it in stages this time, so, hopefully, it won't be quite so stressful for you!I'm having a good week and meeting up with friends, which is always good. Take care.

A quick move at least means less time to fret and it sounds like you are figuring out all the essentials.
Hugs for you and make sure you take care of yourself in this busy time

Hi Teresa, I'm so happy that you are able to move and that things are lining up. I'm going to keep praying for improving health, relief from struggle and renewed abundance.

It always works itself out no matter what, so don't sweat it. You will get moved and all things will fall into place. Craigslist is a blessing for furniture and so is Home Goods. Little bit at a time.
