I want to go back to bed but can't.....

Wednesday, May 04, 2011

I am looking forward to a day off next week even though it is to see the rheumatologist and the lymphedema therapist. At least I will be able to sleep in. I need my coffee and just remembered I have run out!!! and forgot to buy some yesterday.... I hate to do it but I think I will need to go to the store this morning and get some.....bye emoticon

I made a wise decision by going to be early last night!!!

Sunday night I was up waaaay too late, waiting to hear the president's announcement and so I dragged around bleary eyed most of the day on only 5.5 hours or less sleep.

Last night I headed to bed by 7:30 and nodded off by 8:30. Overall, had a good night's sleep, waking up only a few times.

I was so tired I didn't do the leg wrappings before going to bed so will have to do that this morning which takes at least a half hour. Therefore, this is the end of this morning's blog.

Hope everyone has a great day today!!! emoticon

    Hope your day was a great one. I have no idea how you manage to do those leg wrappings by yourself. AWESOME!!

In addition to needing to do some work to the house before selling it (and locating the money to do that)...this summer our street will be torn up and need to check with the city to see if they have an estimated date of start and finish so we can get the heavy duty stuff done that needs a couple of dumpsters....

Perhaps by the time we are ready the real estate market will be better!!!

    ugh. I too am hoping to sell my home this year.... and they just logged a good half mile of land up our road! Not only is it UGHHHHHLY, but the trucks are a pain.

I hope you do well. I am out trying to find some place to be... I really don't want to live in the town I am near, but I don't know what to do! My kids are all over the place, and I miss them like crazy... Have you found your landing zone yet?

    There is always something going on. I'd check it out now before they start tearing the
street up.

Another week begins. Hope things go better today than over the weekend. My weight loss has been stupendous but other issues have reared their ugly heads and some of these are quite difficult to deal with. I am trying not to get depressed over these things and need to have a positive attitude to get me through.

Sleep last night was a bit fitful but after I have my coffee (yes, it's ready!!!!) I will be more awake.

Hope everyone's week is great!!!

Appraisal was not what I expected.....but am optimistic still...

Sunday, May 01, 2011

We are not under water as the saying goes with our value vs mortgage balance, but I do not like the scenarios cited by the real estate agent. I plan to fix a few major problems and find another agent, but probably will end up selling myself as I did with my previous house. At that time we saved about 10,000 in commission on a $150,000 sale. So I definitely know what to do to get this done myself.

At this point I am getting estimates on repairs that definitely need to be done, and some small amount of updating of fixtures and kitchen flooring and painting of at least one room and two ceilings. By the time we will be ready to get the house on the market we will have gotten rid of our "extra" stuff we can't possibly fit into a small place (probably an apartment) and sold anything we can get a decent price for (or donate for tax deduction). I have watched a lot of staging for selling t.v. shows and have a pretty good idea of things people are looking for when coming to a house for sale.

I am hopeful that the market will be better in 6 months so we can get a better price than quoted to me yesterday. We could wait it out longer but I would prefer to have lower monthly expenses but am not feeling desperate...and don't plan to anytime in the future. emoticon

I will come out of this with bells on!!!

P.S. I lost another 3+ lb overnight..... I am faithfully following the Weight Watchers points and am not having difficulty with it. I also have not eaten any ice cream (one of my downfalls) for over a week). emoticon
