Wow, was November really my last post? Well, the old house got packed, the truck got loaded, thanks to many amazing friends and we drove half way across the country thanks to our son!! Also Thanks to our oldest daughter for letting us crash at her house along the way!
We found ourselves in Nebraska, Homeless, Car-less and Jobless. It’s a weird feeling when everything you own is in a 10 x 15 storage unit! Well with overflow in our son’s garage and basement. We lived in his basement for a month, which was nice as we were able to spend Christmas and New Years with them, get to know the baby or have her get to know us. LOL
On December 31st we signed a lease for a 2 bdrm, 1 bath duplex (we’re on the main level and have neighbors upstairs.) However, we didn’t move our stuff in until the 2nd, again thanks to our son and his friends!!
We’ve actually only lived here since the 7th as we’ve been sick for a month and no energy to do this. We learned from our new doctor here that the first month in a new area, your body has no immunity. Well, it’s a double whammy as I don’t have an immunity system at all. We’ve managed to catch this every lingering upper respiratory mess. One or two days you start feeling better and then it’s back to feeling crappy for another one or two days. And that’s on antibiotics. I’m hoping we’ll be done with this soon!! I’d say we both are about 75% better and just started the second round of antibiotics … yeehaw! I’ll be so very happy when this coughing stops along with the blowing of my nose!!
We still are car-less, so we borrow our son’s vehicle when we need to go out. Wow, that’s come full circle … having to ask to borrow the car!
It has been very cold, however, this week it’s been real nice. I’m able to go out in a sweatshirt and sweatpants. I still wear my warm fuzzy boots, keep my feeties warm!
All in all, we are doing good. Trying to get into a routine, but not compromise the body’s immune system. Such a fine line I have to walk. I need to listen to my body more and not want to go and see the grandbabies in their activities. This Sunday was a good example of that, I had insomnia Saturday night and my body was telling me to stay home and not go out. So I missed the band concert and the b-ball game. My son did take me to the pharmacy to get the next round of the drugs. So instead we stayed home and are tying to put the front room together. It’s coming along, I still have a few things to do, but it may have to wait until tomorrow, we’ll see.
Hope you all are having a great Monday!! I’m going to see what I can or cannot do … lol … dang body!!!
