Super Quick Fly-By......... Packing continues. Dinner tonight with my brother and SIL as today is her birthday. Jeez, couldn't she have timed her birthday to better fit our chaos this year? LOL Movers come tomorrow to pack up what we can't figure out how to pack. Move is Saturday. Your sisters rings...

Re: Healthy Living Thread

Oh, how I wish we closed on Friday. But nooooooo, the buyer wanted to close on Monday. And we can't move out of the condo on a Sunday, so the packers come Friday to pack stuff up. They move us out on Saturday and hold our stuff until Monday. And we get the joy of staying in a hotel with the kitties ...

Re: Healthy Living Thread

Hey quick check in. Curby, I wish I could tell my boss everything I don't like or want to do. Millenials are supposed to be our future, right? We're at a point where we just don't know how to pack what's left. The movers are coming Friday to pack up what we can't figure out how to pack. I'm feeling ...

Re: Healthy Living Thread

Sounds like you had a foodie weekend DeeJay! I'm still not feeling very good, but things are improving. I immediately put myself on Cipro, which turns out is good for stomach bacteria. I'm still cramping, but not as badly and I did sleep the entire night last night, which was good. Just so much stre...

Re: Healthy Living Thread

One week to move day. So much we're dealing with. Not the least of which was I managed to get food poisoning last night. I can't say I've felt this bad in a long time. Spewing liquids from both ends, awful stomach pain and a fever are just some of the highlights. We ate a cool urban spot last night ...

Re: Healthy Living Thread

Just been too sad to even post today. To say my heart is bleeding doesn't do justice to the despair I actually feel. To be hated so viciously, to the point someone feels they are justified in taking our lives in such a heinous manner is beyond what my pea-sized brain is capable of processing. Going ...

Re: Healthy Living Thread

Pretty new bling Deejay and Marcy! Quick flyby. Packing has started. Charlie is simply a packing machine! We move out of the condo two weeks from tomorrow. Just doesn't seem real, to be honest. Will be busy packing all weekend. Rough rough rough week at work this week, but won't bore you with it. Ha...

Hey........the rains finally stopped later this afternoon.

Re: Healthy Living Thread

Marcy, with that design in Marty's ring, I'm not sure how it can be resized? Since he just received the ring, they should be willing to get him a new one in the right size. All we managed to do today was find a new rug for the new foyer. We have a fantastic rug store in Tampa, and for some reason, w...

Re: Healthy Living Thread

Marcy, I believe stretching the ring would not work and it wouldn't be a good idea. Send it back and get a larger size. So, today was certainly eventful. We paid off the furniture and scheduled delivery. We bought bed linens for the guest bedroom (we haven't had a guest bedroom in over 6 years. AND....

Re: Healthy Living Thread

Marcy, oh no to Marty's ring possibly being too tight. From the design, I can see it's not easily re-sized. I'm guessing it's going to need to be returned for a different size, which is a royal pain. But if it's too tight in cooler weather, just imagine what will happen during the summer months? So,...

Sigh.....the money keeps mounting up. We bought a spa today for the backyard. We weren't going to buy one. But after we went to the new house to mark where the dining chandelier is supposed to be hung, we decided to go to a local manufacturer and just see what they offered. A couple hours later, we ...

We had a great feast this afternoon. The crabs were simply huge and so so good. We also made my mothers macaroni salad, which she worked on for years to perfect. It's a special treat and made us both remember my mother and father. Marcy, we did look at that fridge and it's really great looking! We h...

Marcy, we considered the GE equivalent, but there is just something about the Samsung that just feels more right for our needs. I'm sure the GE is also a great fridge though........

Re: Healthy Living Thread

Marcy, if money was no object, the fridge I'd buy is the new LG one with the huge screen on it, that is TV, internet, Wifi and from your phone at the grocery store, you can see what's inside. It's only $5K, but boy is it ever amazing. As it is, the Samsung fridge we ordered is expensive enough on it...

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!

It was a tough day. First, I barely slept last night. I now understand why people who lose loved ones are prescribed drugs.

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...

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...
