We are now searching for a new place to live. We want to rent and must have a 2-car garage. Not a bunch to choose from.
I am packing a bit every day. KMart is having a wonderful sale on 18-gallon totes and I have picked up a bunch of those. It's amazing what can fit in one. I plan to have most of the house packed by 1/1/15.
Christmas? Oh yes, we are still going to celebrate. But, instead of the formal dinning room being dressed up, we will eat in the smaller eat-in kitchen table. We will have 3 guest. Thank goodness they don't expect anything fancy
My eating is still going well but there has been a couple of days where my eating has not been good and my exercise is non-existent. I plan to remedy that this week!
Well, that's about all for now. Until later.....

I got some very good news last night and this morning!
1. Our house sold. The first offer was a LOW ball offer and wanted 6% assistance, and to close in 30 days. I tried not to laugh but.... We countered with full price and 4% assistance. We ended up with full-price, 6% assistance and a 1-year home warranty ($450) and closing will happen 1/22/15. We're happy!
2. First phone call this morning was my doctor to tell me that my sugar and thyroid is just as perfect as I am! OH YEAH! DOING THE HAPPY DANCE!!!

I was up early this morning. I had to get blood drawn to check thyroid and sugar levels. It didn't take long...thank goodness.
We are trying to sell the house. A realtor told our realtor that she would have an offer by Friday. Then it was Saturday. Then it was "He needs another day to make up his mind between this house and another". REALLY?! Does this realtor think this is a game?! A joke?! It's just not nice to play with someone's emotions that way. So here I wait, yet another day, to see if we have an offer. If not, I am not going to worry about "staging" the house for show. It will stay as it is, in the mist of setting up Christmas decorations -- a.k.a. ---a mess! If they don't like it, don't buy it! I am sick and tired of living in my own house as though it were not my own!
The Christmas shopping (hunt) is going well. I really need to wrap a bunch of gifts today so that I can take an inventory and figure our who (and what) I still need to buy gifts for. I also need a bunch of gift to be delivered! We haven't gotten our tree yet. I have purchased an ornament for DH. Each year we buy each other an ornament, pick a night to open them, and enjoy some coffee and "us" time. I love it!
I hope this season is being kink to you and, if it isn't, remember to stop and breathe!
