  1. My issue now is I try to be optimistic but my cynical side appears very easily...Forward then backward,,,,,,
  2. Kay, stacking two loads of wood is full days exercise(or three), that is excellent...
  3. I can relate to the stranger caregiver comments....What about the Dogs?.....you would need dog walker or kennel them for a couple weeks?....back surgery does carry risk, if you elect surgery be prepared for homecare, and cancel if not required......tough decision

    Pre-nuptial Agreement

    Pre Nups and Co habitation agreements are a must in this day and age......
  5. Its taken me almost 3 years and I have given away all of Angela's cloths.......Jewelry and keepsakes I'm doling out to family members......This downsizing making me make many hard decisions ......Did some outside superficial painting around fence and garden...Showed the house 4 times, so there is interest....
  6. I posted this before, Marg your comments brought it back...so true Is Nothing At All By Henry Scott-Holland Death is nothing at all. It does not count. I have only slipped away into the next room. Nothing has happened. Everything remains exactly as it was. I am I, and you are you, and the old life that we lived so fondly together is untouched, unchanged. Whatever we were to each other, that we are still. Call me by the old familiar name. Speak of me in the easy way which you always used. Put no difference into your tone. Wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow. Laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes that we enjoyed together. Play, smile, think of me, pray for me. Let my name be ever the household word that it always was. Let it be spoken without an effort, without the ghost of a shadow upon it. Life means all that it ever meant. It is the same as it ever was. There is absolute and unbroken continuity. What is this death but a negligible accident? Why should I be out of mind because I am out of sight? I am but waiting for you, for an interval, somewhere very near, just round the corner. All is well. Nothing is hurt; nothing is lost. One brief moment and all will be as it was before. How we shall laugh at the trouble of parting when we meet again! more Henry Scott-Holland Advertisement Source: https://www.familyfriendpoems.com/poem/death-is-nothing-at-all-by-henry-scott-holland
  7. Haven't bought anything yet but have decided on a "Rural Mobile Home City" called Parkland Village.......Fees are $450 Month and that to me is reasonable.....Now smaller yard ,and half the House, for a Quarter of the price........Has to last me 10 more years, give or take, then to the "no yard or shoveling " option.....
  8. Well , Real Estate guy is taking the pictures of the house today , posting the sign, and there are two prospective Clients already(and he isn't doing the showing)......I am dead tired with all this cleaning, packing, and now hiding stuff so the house isn't cluttered.....Its a good diet, haven't cooked in two days(don't want to get kitchen messed up.)....Definitely underestimated the timetable on this or the work involved.......All part of the Journey......New place is two blocks(aprox) from Karaoke/Sports/Grill establishment.......
  9. My regiment as of late is Turmeric, Omega 3,and my Green smoothie.....and I take Ibuprofen in the morning.......The oil will eliminate the Ibuprofen ,which in turn ,will reduce blood pressure(I hope).......everything in moderation, and that includes working the joints too hard.....
  10. I'm a reformed Beer drinking "good old Boy "but have lots of joint pain as of late( not completely reformed haha)....Joint pain is a result of Sports injuries and one car accident years ago....I grow tomatoes and numerous veggies, neighbour lady suggested Weed helps joint pain......looked it up on line and decided to give it a try.....the Oil has had great results in healing...
  11. They are legalizing Weed up here in July some time......I'm on my 10 years of non smoking, so smoking Weed is out of the question, I plan on making some oil to help the joints and immune system.....So I planted 10-12 seeds and waiting for the female plants to show themselves......Old farmer lady giving me tips(all you need is slow Cooker and Olive oil).......hope to get my harvest in before I sell the house......
  12. Daughter showed up to help me organize the house and pack easy boxes....My plan is lets get this Garage/giveaway sale going by the week end....Forecast for weekend is rain or snow.....Plan is what doesn't go will find its way to Red Cross or Local Dump ..........Can't believe it, leg is coming back really good...Cane only
  13. I think number is higher ..at Least 5% over 45 years old experiencing Grief .....When you look around its almost a radar we have developed(sic)
  14. I've accepted Grief is a life long companion sometime ago.........And still usually speak of Angela in the present. Strange thing is, almost 50% of people who have loved, will experience this.....
  15. Kay, you are so right about the snow...never hit home until this last operation, the importance of the downsizing and that includes driveway....I was first looking at a place to fit my furniture(wrong thought process), must sell or donate all but essentials......Don't need too furnish full basement.....or even need a basement...Just getting my head straight and stay straight........ but still will plant a garden, just incase it doesn't sell right away....
