Moving on up!

To the east side of town, that is, and to a bigger, better apartment. That's right. My hubby and I are soon going to be moving out of our 400 sq. ft. apartment into one that is 836 sq. ft. in a complex that has a swimming pool and tennis court, and a nifty club house! When does this move take place, you ask? Saturday, July 1. Needless to say, I've been busy getting things ready for the move, and that's why I haven't been posting on my blog since the Carnival.

Also, just as a note, we're supposed to be getting repairs done on our computer, and we have to send it away for about two weeks, so we won't be able to chat, blog or send or recieve e-mails very well until then.

And another item of interest: If you remember me talking about having to have more surgery, or even if you don't, I have an update on that, too. I will be having a metal plate removed from my left foot on Monday, July 10. This is a small plate that was put in place to hold together some bone grafting I had done two years ago. The surgery will be done on an outpatient basis, and will take less than an hour. I'll be home later that day.

My doctor said I'll have a splint (non-weight-bearing) for two weeks, and then can move into a walking boot for two weeks. After that, I can ease myself back into shoes. Not bad. Then, a few months later, I'll have to have the same thing done to my right foot. The good thing is that I shouldn't have to miss work or school.

My mom is doing well, too. She should be able to wear regular shoes in about three weeks, but she should be able to drive before that. Which is good, because it'll soon be time to switch roles and let her drive me around! ;)

I'll give you another update and post again after the computer gets fixed. May God bless you and keep you until we meet again.

Now you can by more stuff to fill your new space...isn't that how it works?

Heh, I guess you're right, Mutti. I need to get a shower curtain and liner (the current apartment has sliding shower doors - ick!), and we need a washer and dryer now because we finally have hookups, and we're needing to get a new bed. I guess you could say we're going to be doing a lot of shopping for the new place. ;)

I just need to make sure all my organizing and cleaning is done for a while before I have my surgery.

I'll comment more when I get my computer back. I've got some down-time at work, so I have to keep this short.
