And his ejection fraction is even lower than pre-surgery.

Feeling more than a bit defeated right now. I think it would help to get moved into the new space as soon as possible and get some order and symmetry back into our days. Or at least, get him settled while I try to get things wrapped up with the primary residence. Just so tired right now. I feel like we need a two week cruise and forget all this laborious mess w/ getting the house on the market and moving. But that ain't gonna happen, lol. So I guess I soldier on.
Many of us will be thinking of you as you meet this new development. I wish we could arrive as a crew and get you moved into the new place. How soon can that happen? Hopefully before the winter sets in.

In the meantime...epsom salts baths, magnesium for calm, and all the other things you do to take good care. Lots of good thoughts coming your way....

Thank you, NEgirl! Those good thoughts are much appreciated!

I wish you all could come and help me pull things together. I did find an App (did I write about that earlier?) used for inventory/archiving of one's household goods and am using that to inventory each room and make decisions about what goes in the first move and what stays for staging until the house sells. That has helped a lot. Not enough hours in the day. I did get one project finished today (YAY!) and I had my doubts about part of it but the client was pleased - didn't even make one change, which just never happens. I was sooooo grateful.

Tomorrow will be a hodge podge of activities. Hoping I can get a handyman lined up to put up some new front porch sconces I have had sitting here -- and I have a list of other things I can't do and need help finishing. Those things will be a relief to get off the list.

No idea when we will be able to move in. Gotta get hubby in that townhouse so he can begin Rehab. Turns out it is just as well he had not been doing Rehab (we feel we have lost a month - he was given permission to start on 8/25). But with that thrombus, propbably best he wasn't pushing it. I guess things do work out as they are supposed to (does that sound fatalistic?).

Here's what I do know to be true. I have invited everyone to my home for Thanksgiving; and we are expecting house guests (trip planned for a long time!) in November. So we have to be in and at least somewhat settled by Thanksgiving!

New England days right now are pristine, just perfect. I spent over an hour this afternoon sitting down at the marina with the dogs, watching the sparkling river, blue skies and lovely boats in a delicious breeze. I felt at least 20 years younger and I realized that my happiest times ever are around water (especially rivers). That's a clue I had forgotten when it comes to where to live, ultimately. It's going to be a spectacular fall foliage, conditions are right this year. Will try to catch an early evening riverboat cruise before mid-October. (I imagine the Ozarks are gearing up for gorgeous, too.)

Thank you, Tuborg!

A pleasant day today. Got all my work finished except some website changes - need to write some copy and get that uploaded before Monday. Things went well w/ work this week.

Hubby had a calm and pleasant day. Just watched a movie on Netflix about the Duchess of Devonshire. I had seen it some time in the past but it was great seeing it again (hubby had never seen it).

Looking forward to getting some things done tomorrow . . . have some new recipes I want to try out, too.

Hope all is well in your world and that you have an interesting weekend!

Interesting weekend here. The day is gorgeous again. I'm going to the annual garlic festival, which also features many artisans and music. I hope I can keep up with my companions, one of whom sometimes forgets to slow down for me. The other does, as she has similar challenges. I will probably come home with at least one rope of garlic to ward off the evil spirits over the winter. Have a wonderful weekend, everyone, I hope it's just as nice weather-wise where you are.

wonderful weather here too. There's an 1890s festival in town and had every intention of going. Kind of re-thinking that. May just head for the hills in get in a long over due hike.

We just returned from a few days in Maine. Maine was crowded! Guess it must be the unseasonably gorgeous, almost hot, weather. Foliage is starting to turn though.

Ani, I wish you good luck getting all your work done and getting moved into the new place and finally settled. You're really going through a rough spell,
