The Road Before & After Surgery

Now Playing: Day 2927-Chapter 3... Happiness~My Silver Lining


Talking about sleeping like a baby!

That is totally me over the past week!

I went from being one with the vampires... to now waking up with the birds. HA! I don't mind though, it just means being able to now get things done during 'normal' hours when folks are up. HA!

Poor Eric is still on third shift and really despises this new sleep schedule. No worries, I rotate with the sun, sometimes the moon too! This too will most likely pass after enduring this weeks second round of surgery. A far less invasive surgery to remove a cancerous skin growth on my chest. I was told that it will be a whole lot less invasive which means barely any noticeable pain due to my already anything-but-normal, high tolerance of pain. A small scar left behind that I like to consider a mere battle wound. Even the rainbow colors of bruising is almost gone from the entire left side of my face. So is the swelling. Regardless of the hilarious comments from those out in the public, during the day, I still made sure to get out and catch some fresh air. As always... staying active, keeping your blood flowing, is the best way in order to make sure you continue on the path to a smooth road to recovery!

We will be placing our current home, here in the country, up for sale at the start of the summer season. Thankfully we don't have much, as far as repairs still left to do in order to complete our house flip. A far too many repairs, repainting and redecorating project. We don't plan on making any money from the sale, if anything, our expectations remain low. We will be happy to just break even with this home in order to begin the long trek ahead to our final and permanent destination out west. As an OCD organized, neat freak... I plan on making sure that everything here on out goes as smooth as possible! We are fortunate to have the help from a new friend out here in Indiana who will be guiding us along with our private sale of our home. The bank has already been notified by all three credit bureaus regarding incorrect information and lack of showing all payments with regards to Eric's VA mortgage loan. That crazy 'mental error' as the bank so put it of adding over $148,000 without Eric's knowledge, onto his existing loan has already quickly gotten resolved. However, there is still a freeze on Eric's credit information until the remaining issues get resolved between the bank and the credit bureaus. We have until July, at least enough time to get things resolved.

In the meantime... it's important as ever to remember to not dwell on things and keep smiling! Sharing laughter among each other as one big puppy took his first and last far bigger bath at a nearby self grooming salon. So much for trying to save money by doing the grooming ourselves. Instead of paying the lady at the counter $10.00 for using their self-service salon. Maybe we should had just handed them a $10.00 bottle of extra strength Tylenol. Hahahaha! Not only did Snoreo want no part, what-so-ever, of his first and last bath out in the open for everyone to see and hear... bark-whine-bark-whine-whine-bark-whine... but I tend to firmly believe that the employees at this salon never want to see us back again. Hahahahaha! If only video capability was available on this current blog software. Hahahahaha! I never laughed so hard in my entire life! It was EXACTLY what we both needed! Maybe exactly what everyone needed that worked at the salon and customers who just had to see what all the commotion was about with a BIG puppy and a far BIGGER fear of getting a bath! Hahahahaha!

As far as the real puppy at home, Babyblue... we will just stick to bathing her in our bathroom tub. Hehehehehehe!
