Let's see, where did we end off... Oh yeah, I was getting ready to put the outlet covers back on. I went over Saturday and started replacing covers. It looked pretty funny because after I screwed the switch cover on, I would count out the other covers and sit down on the floor. Then I would scoot around, using one leg for motion as I put them on. LOL The seat of my shorts were rather dusty! I put about 60 covers on and then got the ladder to put some bulbs in. It was nice to have lights all over the house again.
My aunt and Dad had gone to Home Depot to get baseboard so I was over there by myself. It shouldn't have been a problem but they dropped me off about 9:30 and I started getting nervous about 1 pm. I just tried to stay busy. I used the shop vac to clean the drawers in the kitchen and the cabinets. That was kind of fun. LOL The only thing is, I discovered the cabinets don't have any dividers. They are open from one end of the counter to the other. I hate those kind! You chase your pots and pans, etc. So I guess we will look for some organizational stuff so we don't lose things.
By the time I was done, I didn't want to see another outlet cover! I have to wait for the living room because the furniture is covering all of that. We went over to Wally World yesterday and picked up a few things for the house. I got some of that drawer stuff for lining, NOT contact paper! I hate that stuff. lol I got something else too, besides the groceries, you will have to look at the pictures I am posting and see if you can figure it out. :) Its like a, "What is different about this picture?" thing.
I have to complain for a minute. My friend is sitting in the living room right now. He's the one that helped us with the painting. He's DRIVING ME CRAZY!!! I need a day to just unwind, my anxiety is so high that my heart is actually beating fast. My aunt has been pushing me since she got here and I am tired! So I am so happy she's going over to the house to babysit Dad and leaving me alone for a bit. Then Johnathon comes over and he won't leave. I just can't win today.
I made a big breakfast this morning because my Dad is going to be working hard and my aunt actually told my Mom I am not feeding her enough! So I got up this morning and made cheese eggs, pancakes, maple sausage (TJ picked them out), and toast. Dad had oatmeal instead of toast. NOW she says I gave her too much food! AUGH I love her to bits but I am going to have a quiet mini breakdown after she leaves. She tells us that she is hopeless not helpless, but I assure you, she is enjoying having someone at her beck and call.
For those worried, my tooth is not hurting at this point. I got lucky and staved off the dental visit a bit longer. I just take my sinus meds and my other stuff, no Ibuprofen/Tylenol, etc. I do know I need to get this taken care of, I am just trying to get in a better position to do so. We don't even have moving boxes. And with taking showers over there, we are moving one towel at a time. LOL Dad calls it a slow motion move. LOL
The funny thing is that Synergy is coming tomorrow to replace our hot water heater. Yeah, they are finally coming out and we are moving. Dad told them we are moving but they said they didn't care. Okayyyyyyyy, whatever! Cross your fingers, we have someone coming to look at the house this weekend. It would be nice to have a financial cushion as well as be able to pay for some things for the house ourselves.
I am doing really well on my diet. I weighed 182 on Sunday morning. I eat a lot of fast food right now while we are trying to do stuff but I just try to make good choices. It seems to be working for me. I can't believe that I am 13 pounds away from my goal of 169. I may not make it all the way there, it just depends on how I feel ultimately. I would like to be able to wear a size 12 comfortably and would be happy with that. Right now I am in between a 14 and a 16. So many people are telling me that I am an inspiration, its feels scary and good all at the same time!
I'll end with the pictures I promised, I can't think of anything else to update right now. We really don't have a very exciting life. LOL
