A Little Move

 

We made a small move to town yesterday.  Only a matter of 10 miles, but now we have full hook-ups at 50amp instead of 30amp at Shannon and Mark’s house.  We loved being out there, but it took forever to dry clothes, and I would have to turn everything off in order to run the air.  My convection oven would only run at full power if everything else was off so, this will be a little better.  I already miss them though.  Mark helped us with the move and backed us right in to our spot.  We are putting up some final things today.  Hope to get some rope lights for around the patio, and maybe a couple of potted plants to make it feel homey.  I am going to get one of the beautiful butterflies that change color at night.  They are solar powered and I will get a picture of it when I get it up and working.

We had a great time yesterday evening.  Herb, my younger brother, and Willie, his wife and my best Buddy, invited us over for supper and games.  We played Mexican Train till we could all tell it was past our bedtime.  She made a wonderful supper of fried chicken, mashed taters, green beans and mac and cheese.  She made the best gravy.  She uses her potato water and makes a rue in the skillet she fried the chicken in.  She pours all or most of the grease off first.  Yum, Yum!!  She also made a cake that I had gotten a recipe for while in Texas, and it was to die for.  Thanks Herb and Willie for a great evening… :)

We are having cable and internet hooked-up today.  We feel like we will probably be here through the summer, and we want to enjoy our time here.  My heart had gotten back in sinus rhythm, but has already jumped out again.  Shannon talked to my Doctor about it, and he told me not to worry, that they would be adjusting my meds to get the best result for me.  Everyone is different and it takes a while to get it right.  Got good news about my eyes on Tuesday.  My pressure is back down and the headaches have let up a lot.  Also the Coumadin level seems to be working for me, but from what I understand, it may need adjusting down the road.  Things are starting to look up for me.

Want to welcome my newest follower, my beautiful daughter, Shannon.  It really does my heart good when my kids take the time to read what I have to say.  It is a great compliment as a Mother.  I am so very proud of both of my kids, and all three of my step-kids.  I love you all!!

I talked to a friend of our family this morning, who also happens to own a floor-laying business.  She is going to send one of her crew around to talk to us about laying some new flooring for us.  This old carpet is wearing me out, and I am so ready for it to be gone.  I am thinking some kind of vinyl would be best with a dog.  I could just run a Swiffer over it every morning, and damp mop when it needs it.  I had it in my dinning room, kitchen and sunroom in the stick house, and it was so easy to take care of.

Gotta run and get some laundry done.  Later… :)

P.S.  Don’t know what is going on with blogger, but I had to repost my blog and lost all of the comments.

So happy to hear things are looking up for you...I have been wondering. It does take time to get just the right med & dosage. We only had 30 amp @ our kids...was happy to have it, but you certainly have to be careful when you are limited to 30. Take care & God bless!

You have accomplished so much! It sounds like your health is improving. You have also found a nice place to stay this summer. 50 amp service is so much nicer.

We put in a laminate floor last fall. It is the best money we have spent on this coach. It is so much cleaner than carpet and keeping it clean is a breeze.

Take care, we continue to keep you in our prayers

Glad to see you are getting all settled in for the summer and are beginning to feel a bit better. Hopefully, your health will continue to improve as the meds begin to work their magic!

Good to hear you are improving, getting your heart rhythm does take time, Donna had been taking medicine since her procedure two years ago and she is still not quite right.We are thinking of you, Sam & Donna..

Sounds like you are getting settled in and have a good site. Having 50amp does make it easier doesn't it??
Continue to take care of your health because that is MOST important. Take care!

I'm so glad to hear that you are enjoying yourselves. This is the first rig we've had with 50 amp and we really enjoy not have to worry about juggling the electricity. I'm praying that you will start feeling better and better!

Carol and Johnny said...

So glad to hear your health issues are getting better. I know it can be frustrating getting through the process, but if you stick with it I'm sure you will be back on the road before you know it!
Vinyl sounds like a great idea. There's some cool vinyl that looks like wood and comes in strips like planks that might be great!

Gypsy said...

I'm following your progress on getting the heart rhythm straightened out, and I'm right behind you. I will see a cardiologist when I get to NY, and hope I do as well as you seem to be doing.

Great that you are feeling better. Look at laminate tile. Looks nicer than vinyl(ours looks just like real tile)and is just as easy to clean

Judy and Emma said...

Are you going to show us some pictures of your new digs? What town is it in?

Kevin and Ruth said...

Sounds like you are enjoying your new spot and that it isn't to far away from your family. Things sound like they are looking good for you in the health department which is great news.

Glad to read that you now have 50 amps. Sounds like your health is doing better too. It sure is an upset with health problems get in the way of our traveling lifestyle.

Happytrails said...

I suppose my original comment was lost due to Blogger issues. We've been without internet for about a week...not available where we were.

Glad you were able to get 50amp! It sure does make a difference. Also sounds like a nice place to rest and heal. Take care of yourself! Yes, a pic of your new "home site" would be nice!

Phyllis said...

Glad you've settled!

Hey, it was Friday the 13th yesterday, more so in Blogger Land! :O

Randy and Terry said...

I'm with Gerri - 50amp is so very nice! We can make do with 30 and have often done so, but there's nothing like having 50amp so you don't have to "think" every time you want to do something.

Good news on your health issues. Glad to hear the docs seem to be on top of it.

Enjoy your new place.

Rick and Paulette said...

Glad to hear you got a 50amp spot. Blogger was down for over a day and comments for blogs posted on Wednesday, and maybe Thursday, have been deleted.
