Almost every trip, my car beeps at me.  I’m beginning to think it’s because some other vehicle is invading our personal space.  We enjoyed the “Toast and Taste in the Gardens” event at the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum.

Avery observed and commented that Daisy seems to be itching/scratching more than usual these days.  Respecting Avery’s good sense when it comes to animals, I’ve started Daisy on Benadryl.

We were really excited about this house the first time we saw it.  Today, not so much.  In fact, it’s been removed from consideration.  At this point, there isn’t even a short list.

We are beginning to settle into something resembling a routine.  Today, the Dogs started their weekly visit to PupTown.  They were pretty excited to be there!

The closing on my Minnetonka home happened without a hitch.  I was not being honest with myself as to just how nervous I was about that.

Since my right knee seems no worse for Avery and I having walked the dogs on Friday morning, I decided to try it again today:  47:48, 2.35 miles, 2.9 mph, HR=120.  Again, I used the retractable leash to keep the jerking/pulling to an absolute minimum.

The Truths Within.

2014-06-01 Sunday

According to Sarah Ban Breathnach’s book “Moving On”, moving ranks as the number one stressful rite of passage ahead of death, divorce, or debt.  I didn’t know that.  Even in my current position, I’m not sure I believe it.  I met with my Therapist/Coach.  Picked Steven up from the airport.  Looked at four more houses:  Needs too much work, too small, too big and a tuckunder.

My house is empty.  Both cars are STUFFED, but the house is empty.  I had a medium sized melt down on Thursday evening, but I feel much better about it all now.

Finally!  The results of my Fungal Culture Derm:  No yeast or fungus isolated.  So much for that theory.  After Pilates with Carol at TheMarsh, my intention was to nap in the sun for 2 hours.  But, my Realtor had a better idea.  He wanted to show me a house, quick before it sells.  It was a very nicely remodeled 1957 rambler in a great south Plymouth neighborhood.  But:  It’s not a walkout, there’s no good place for my piano and I would need to employ a gardener or cover some of those planting beds with sod.  We have an appointment to see it again when Steve returns on Sunday, but the Realtor is confident it won’t be available anymore.  We shall see.  1-800-GOT-JUNK showed up right on time and took away everything I needed them to becuase they are the best junk removal cleveland.  There was still a Volkswagen full for Goodwill.  Probably two X5 loads for storage and Victoria.  Ugh.  I am so exhausted by all of this.
