LilyFestre De-clutter & Fitness: House, job, life - 2019 (1059* d) RE: De-clutter & Fitness: House, job, life - 2019 26 May 19


Just a brief update....

I'm down 16.8 pounds now.
Five bags of Jeremiah's clothes have been washed, bagged and are in the car to be delivered to their new family on Wednesday.

The living room has been cleaned and dusted. The pellet stove has been cleaned out and is ready for next season. The top has been washed down and now houses 8 battery powered candles that are flickering nicely in that dark corner.

We, as a family, went furniture shopping yesterday. We have narrowed down our choices to 2 sofas. We were initially thinking a couch, a love seat, 2 ottomans and a straight back upholstered chair but after much measuring and day dreaming, I think I would prefer a couch and 2 recliners. It is not the style that I wanted but so far, we haven't found that style in something that is uber comfy which is what we want....so....I may have to compromise on this point as I'd much rather be comfortable than pretty which is SO obvious if you were ever to meet me in person.

In addition, Pete is looking at a new to him truck.

Also, I had a turkey fly into my car last week which did substantial damage...all fixable in the days ahead.

On the same day the turkey flew into my car, we had to take Jeremiah to the Emergency Department. He had been playing outside in his dirt pile of trucks and such when the wind kicked up dirt and debris into his eye. Although I flushed it several times, it didn't appear as it was helping and he was in pain. At the hospital, they numbed his eye, used a q-tip to look up under his eyelid after applying special eye drops and using a light that would clearly show scratches or foreign objects. They also flushed his eye. Thankfully, everything is ok. We don't know what was in his eye and the ED doctor stated that it's likely it came out when I was flushing water in his eye...we'll never know. No scratching or permanent damage.

I went on a bus trip to Rochester last weekend for the Lilac Festival with my mom...we always have a good time together and I completely enjoyed the day!

We are planning a Mother Daughter trip in September...it is my late birthday and early Christmas gift combined. We are headed to the ocean, somewhere I've been wanting to go now for years but Pete hasn't had the desire to go...I can't wait! I SO much prefer our together adventures than gifts! We are also currently signed up to make ceramic Christmas trees and another class to make a basket.

On Tuesday I go for my annual cancer check up. I have the tumor markers drawn twice a year and the big exam once a year at this point. I wish I could say it isn't nerve wracking anymore but I'm just not quite there yet.

I have tomorrow off which I will most likely spend either puttering or sitting at the car dealership with Pete to purchase his truck (if they are open).

Happy Memorial Day Everyone!

Michelle

PS. Plans are in the works to get the kayaks out on the water now that Jeremiah can swim...I imagine it won't be long until he has a yak of his own!
