H, I, J speeding by

House stuff, insanity and just getting by.

I knew April was going to be tough, but it is proving to be everything expected and more.  We close on both houses in ten days...HOPEFULLY.  Road blocks are teasing us. Slowly but surely I think it will all work out.  We are certainly working to pack everything and make the final step easier.  

Father in law is having surgery today. We have not been as involved as we would like, but fortunately home health has been available to make things a little easier in their household.  I don't know how long he will be in the hospital after today's kidney stone removal.  We sort of hope it will be three days which will allow for insurance to cover a recovery period in a rehab facility.  It is getting to the time where he needs constant care. Unfortunately he is not ready to accept this. 

Day to day we seem to be just getting by. Everything is getting done, but sometimes it feels like barely is the best description.  

Life is about choices.Each day I am having to choose whether to blog or go to the gym.  Yesterday, gym won.  Today, blogging...with hope that gym will be a part of it too.  Pretty sure I will go back to blogging when I can. It certainly shouldn't be a stress point. There's plenty of that without blogging being part of it.  


  1. Keeping up with the A-Z is tough, I have been able to do it so far, but haven't been as good as keeping up with others. I hope your father-in-law is doing better.

  2. Sounds like you've got a full plate not even counting the blog challenge. Good luck.

  3. Good job on your posts.

    Don't give up on the Challenge.
    Feel free to combine letters, like above, to catch up.

  4. I always feel that if blogging becomes a chore, its time to have a break. It's supposed to be fun, not something you dread

  5. I like how you snuck three letters in there at once. Sometimes we just have to be clever to make it through! (As in blogging, so as in life.)
