Catching Up

21 May

Well hello there. Long time no write.  Just finished doing an interesting project. I purchased a Food Allergy blood test through Everywell. I had to poke my finger and then drip 5 drops of blood on a card. I send it in and in a few weeks I’ll know what my sensitivities are. They will test 96 foods. I had this done several years ago at an allergy clinic. My back turned into one giant hive and I couldn’t bend my arms because they were so swollen. I was allergic to everything. I am having many weird skin issues-Yucky break outs, hives popping up off and on, itchy and sensitive skin, stomach issues. This was cheaper than going to doctor. I think I paid $120 for kit. Sooooo…we’ll see.

Life is busy busy. We returned from Texas on May 4. We have already had a trip to Topeka and getting ready to head out for Akansas and Kansas on June 3. This coming Friday our La Veta home goes on the market. We have purchased a fixer upper townhouse in Topeka. We had a financial awakening a couple of months ago. We decided #1 that we needed to be closer to family in case of health emergencies. In the last couple of years so many of our friends have either passed away, had serious diseases, strokes, heart attacks. We decided to be pro active and move while we can do it ourselves and live where we want to live. We are in good shape and have our faculties somewhat together. We will be moving into a smaller place and will be getting rid of a lot of stuff. Ugh.  I feel good about this and feel it is a mature thing for Denny and I to do which is hard for us to do. LOLLOL.

With that being said we are trying to stay somewhat calm but need to proactive with getting things done around here in between trips to Kansas, trip to California, our dream bicycle trip to Alaska and a trip to Italy. Plus I have to make 40 Wine totes for a craft show in Holton, KS on June 8 and 75 travel trays for a business. I’ve been sewing and embroidering for days and it will all get done. Denny is busy putting up a privace fence, cleaning out the garage and will be painting the outside of the house. Yikers.

When I told Elliott that we were moving to Topeka she was sooo excited and jumped up and down and twirled all around. It will be fun to be around the gkids and Billie. I would like to Cade do some debate stuff, watch Elliott dance and take Kyler fishing.

Another reason for this move is so hopefully we won’t end up in assisted living or somewhere else. This townhouse has a full handicapped bath on the ground floor with a walk in nursing home like shower. I told Billie she can just wheel me in the shower and hose me off and put me to bed when the time comes.

That’s it for now. Stay tuned for our next phase.
