emoticon The couple came again today and we did a lot and I sure was tired.
I'm so glad computer is working, the carpet is laid and 12 or more boxes of books went to the church for their library. I think they did put some in those boxes though that I said I wanted to keep but I don't need many books.

The computer has so many things and I like my Kindle better than a book especially since the letters in the books have shrunk so much. Think it is time to get my glasses changed.

Someone mentioned they would like to be able to afford a housekeeper but for me this was a necessity. They don't want money but I'm going to pay them as they need the money and although I gave them lots of things they need money for medicine, etc. I will use some of the insurance money to bless them.

After thinking it over I feel I need to do my income tax before going in for surgery then I can come home to a decent house and income tax done and just major on getting strong for my next surgery. My knees have been feeling better these days so maybe the extra movement and work has helped them.

The couple will come tomorrow and we will finish with the boxes I think. I thought about saying no but then thought Saturday I get my hair done emoticon and get ready for emoticon on Sunday so why not finish this. I have a habit of almost finishing something and then not doing it. emoticon

Later I am going to clean cabinets, etc and have a new house and hope I don't have another water leak anytime soon. That is one way to get your house clean and downsized though. A blessing in disguise. I am so glad it didn't happen while I was in re-hab.

Thank you for all of your kind words and messages, goodies and prayers. God bless you all.

    Your "angels" have been a wonderful blessing. I thought I was the only one who did things 90 to 95% of the way and then put off finishing them. I know it isn't that I fear not having something else to do afterwards.

Your recent activities will certainly benefit you physically and emotionally. Hope the taxes are done easily too and then onward for the surgery.

    God bless such good people, they have helped you so much.
Yes, you have to be thankful the leak happened when it did. The problem would have been so much worse.

Let them finish up so you will feel good about your home. Then you will be at peace with your surroundings.

Hugs Mary

    It does sound like your project is close to being done. It probably is a good idea to get as much done as possible before your surgery so you don't have to think about anything except your recovery.

God bless you!!!
