I’m sorry. I’ve really been missing in action lately in the Blogosphere, but I just don’t seem to be able to get everything done in a day that I want to accomplish. And, as much as I enjoy blogging, it is not a top priority.
OK, apology aside, here’s a brief recap of what’s kept me so busy. First of all, we’re still fully involved in settling Daddy’s estate. Thank goodness we have a lawyer in the family!! We received the Letters Testamentary the other day, so I’ve had Daddy’s car worked on. It’s ready to try to sell now. I’m not looking forward to that, but hopefully it won’t take long to find a buyer for the price we want for it. We’re meeting with our DD and SIL and the mortgage person at the house tomorrow to fill out the sales contract on the house. There’s been a good bit of talking back and forth to get all the particulars of the mortgage worked out to our satisfaction, but it looks like they will close within the next two weeks.
We’ve also been busy having a driveway and patio put in and the foundation for our new garage. We’re waiting now for the special order materials we have chosen that will match our house. We were very pleased to find the same siding and shingles we already have are still available. Once we have the garage, we will be bringing the stuff out of Daddy’s house that our daughters do not want, and then we’ll be having a huge yard sale!! It may be fun to go to them, but it won’t be fun to have one!
We have continued to go to the track, and I’m continuing to get stronger. I feel really great in the mornings, and it’s hard to make myself quit, when I feel like I can do more. But, by the afternoon, I’m dragging, and by night time, I am worn out and sore. You’d think I’d sleep well with all this activity, but I’m getting about 4 hours a night. I just don’t seem to be able to stay asleep long at all. And the sleeping pills don’t help, either.
I’ve been extremely busy with our online business, too, trying to get our listings on eBay back up to our normal number. We have kept on buying, for the fun of it, even though we were not listing much. So now, it’s list or not be able to move around our own home!!
