Hi Owlies, I am here! Still recuperating, still trying to put the house together, this weekend is the estate sale and I’m nowhere near it thankfully. Things got so messed up with me being in the hospital and stuff getting moved that shouldn’t have. I know I should have stopped the process but I was a bit distracted at the time. But DC and I went over to the old house after Thursday’s chemo, and we’re pretty sure we had everything we really wanted or needed. Haven’t heard how the sale is going, but the weather is really nice and that’s usually good for these events. The next project is getting that house ready to sell. DH neglected maintenance the last couple of years, and I have a realtor whose hubby is a contractor which has been nice in some ways as he’s been really helpful around here, installing my shower bars as instructed by OT home health, and some other fixes we needed. There’s always something. The catch is that the realtor and her hubby want to basically remodel and update the other house, and the initial estimate was $30-40k, which would probably consume my entire equity in the house and probably not get any additional profit to boot. I’m going to put my foot down about it and stop it at necessary repairs and maybe replacing bathroom fixtures that have deteriorated. We put in a brand new HVAC unit last year, the roof is good, etc. I’ve gotten a bid on one of the outside projects that has to happen - the backyard is partly mud, because someone sodded a shady area with bermuda instead of fescue and it died.
The details are not helping my health at all, and I have to pay 2 mortgages in a couple of days. Ouch.
And DC had an MRI on her achy knee yesterday and they found a meniscus tear. She is adamant about not being able to take the time off to have surgery and recover, she can’t be out of commission, she just can’t! (Her words) I’m not exactly sure why, or what disaster she imagines will befall her - or us.
Son is on the phone.
