Our new home!

A short post today. Sorry I have been missing in action the past three days but, drumroll please, our house is ready and will hit the market tomorrow. Three days. Well, actually 2 1/2 days. 17 loads to the Goodwill. My car was filled to the brim with the seats down and the passenger seat in the front was filled too. We got rid of virtually everything. Our house is empty except for furniture and a few little things.  Of course, I didn’t get rid of any gifts that I have received from any of you, or any of my yarn except some really, really old acrylic I had.  I haven’t done much with the kitchen cabinets either.

Alicia and her two boys came over Monday and Tuesday and helped me throw the few things in boxes that we were keeping and the boys loaded my car and Alicia’s car over and over for goodwill runs. They worked so hard. Not even teenagers yet and they have an amazing work ethic. If it hadn’t been for Alicia and them I would’ve never been able to do this.   They also helped clean for me too.  Actually, they did most of the cleaning.

Our realtor expects us to have multiple offers and has said in the listing that we will review all offers Monday at 6 in the evening. I’m kind of glad I haven’t had time to think about this. If I did I think it would really upset me but there hasn’t been any time. I’ve been up till between one and two every night and back awake at six. I have been amazed that my back has not given me one iota of problems, however, there’s something wrong with my right leg and I don’t know what.  I don’t remember hitting it, but about 3 inches above my ankle it hurts so bad I can barely walk now. That started last night. It’s not bruised or red. Oh well, hopefully that will go away quickly. I’ll try to rest more the next couple of days.


I’ll keep you all updated. You have no idea how much I appreciated all of your wonderful comments on my last post.   And guess what? There’s room in our storage facility for my Hoosier cabinet! I don’t have to get rid of it after all. Yippee! Take care and I’ll check in again as soon as I can. 

Our “new” old home.



Blessings, Betsy

  2. What a whirlwind but it is probably good you don't have time to think it too deeply.
    Just keep doing what you need to do. Now is a good time to rest-your body is telling you something! Listen.

  7. I'm super impressed with how quick you were able to empty your house! That is so good that you were able to find room for your Hoosier. Someday when you find your next home it will bring you joy. Now that most of it is done, you need to put your feet up and rest your body and soul. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  9. PRAYING for you in all these things.
    Maybe get leg checked out, I think if not ok tomorrow.
    Your conditions you dont want complications.
    I prayed you would be able to keep your Hoosier God is sooo good.
    Would also appreciate prayer.
    I've a heart condition to add to my long list now. Named after Japanese word.. you'd love that.. discovered in 1990 by 2 Japanese Drs. Takotsubo Cardiomyopathy.
    Not heart attack but heart faulue due sudden damage to heart muscle.
    Actually preferable to heart attack as damage IS reversible!
    It causes however Tachycardia so will need to watch it. Happens as we get older
    Been out of hosp two days. Appreciate prayer wisdom in all things.
    Praying thus for you also dear dear Betsy.
    Love you dearly in Lord and rejoicing at what He has and will do in all this for you.
    Prayer hugs, Shaz in Oz. x

  11. Oh, WOW! I am just so thrilled to hear about your progress! 17 loads to the Goodwill!!! YES!! I can so relate to that, and oh, the freedom that comes from such! It is a glorious thing to follow Jesus and let go of all encumbrances. His way is absolutely the path to peace and liberty. SO proud of you, Betsy.

  15. WOW---great job... Can't believe this is all happening so quickly... Your 'adrenaline' has kicked in to give you more energy... Just be careful with the ankle/leg....

    Your 'new' old home looks so inviting... It's really a fairly large RV, isn't it? You two will be fine.

    Keep us posted.
    Hugs,
    Betsy

  16. Well, I just had to go see the previous post to figure out what is going on. Wow! Definitely a big change but sounds like you have a plan and are jumping right into making it happen. Take care of that leg. Maybe massage it with some oil. Hope it is feeling better today. Wish you all the best with everything.

  17. As things progress, you will discover that this decision was the correct one. I remember clearing the things out of my house when I moved. Everything fell into place like it was planned. You’re on a new path, enjoy the journey.
