Re: Healthy Living Thread

Happy Long Weekend Everyone! DeeJay, the cabin and shopping sounds like fun! The shopping has started. I got off at 2 yesterday and we went and picked out the 6 ceiling fans and controls we need. Then we went to the plumbing store and we bought a new kitchen faucet (we simply don't like the one the ...

Re: Healthy Living Thread

Thanks Marcy, We signed the contract this evening when I got home from work. It was a very straight forward contract, so it was easy. So now the shopping begins! I started it by ordering the dining room fixture we need to match the foyer and pendants over the breakfast bar. They chose Kirchler light...

Re: Healthy Living Thread

Sooooooooooooooooooo, first day back at work and I had a difficult time concentrating, but I'm sure tomorrow will be better. Was pretty depressed after turning down the offer last night. And then, our house was shown today and our realtor called after the showing. AND. Wait for it...........the buye...

Re: Healthy Living Thread

Marcy, I got some much needed sleep last night. And today, I finally got through to the VA and just about everyone I needed to reach, so I'm going back to work tomorrow. We actually went furniture shopping this afternoon and found some things we'll likely get for the new house . We were presented an...

Re: Healthy Living Thread

Thanks Everyone! I'm taking another day off tomorrow. It's overwhelming how many things you have to do when a parent passes. From notifying Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, his supplemental insurance, banks, credit cards. It's simply dizzying. I have the VA nightmare maze to navigate tomorrow. D...

Re: Healthy Living Thread

It was a tough day. First, I barely slept last night. I now understand why people who lose loved ones are prescribed drugs. I wound up drinking a beer at 1:00 AM and still had trouble getting any sleep. We went to the nursing home and cleaned out his room. I found that fun task odd, liberating and c...

Re: Healthy Living Thread

We had a showing of our condo today, but the lady who saw it felt it was bigger than she is looking for. Then we went and visited with my dad, which was just so terribly sad. It was clear he didn't have much time left. And he didn't. We met my brother and SIL and showed them the new house, then went...

Re: Healthy Living Thread

Well, we did it. We signed the contract after work tonight and gave them a pretty hefty deposit. They require more down than I imagined, but we did it. And we listed our condo tonight as well. Now we've got to get this place sold. There was one silver lining. Even though the builders agent said they...

Re: Healthy Living Thread

So, the townhouse saga continues. After we lost the one we liked the most we went back today at lunch and looked at the one next to the old bungalow. The bungalow is rented and in not very good shape. But we like the unit, even if it's next to something we don't like. So, we decided to go ahead. Gre...

Re: Healthy Living Thread

DeeJay, the juries out whether we'll do anything. But it's always fun to look at new houses. Units are still selling in our condo, even with the lawsuit going on. Our next door neighbor just sold his unit a few weeks ago, so I'm guessing we'd be OK. Our building is very desirable, in a great locatio...

Re: Healthy Living Thread

Because we live in a two tower 10 floors each tower, condominium, with lots of amenities, it's expensive here. Our monthly maintenance fee is about $700/month, plus the ongoing special assessments for our legal battle with the developer.

Yep, you take iPhone pics horizontally, with the home button to the right. When you do, you can post them on any forum and they'll post correctly.

Yes, that's the issue. I keep telling Charlie Apple changed the orientation on photo's on the iPhone some time ago. I ask him to take pics sideway with the home button on the right.

DeeJay, kitties are great. They just celebrated their 1st birthday on the 27th. I went to post some pics Charlie's taken lately, but he insists on taking photos on his cell phone the wrong direction, so they're all off. I'll take some in the next couple days to post.
