its not what we want to do but we have 3 more large projects the insurance comp. is saying we have to do to keep our insurance...its all just too much to say do this in a year.. we cant afford to do all of it unless we do it ourself...but the weather has not cooperated at all this year...we are just doing th ebest we can.. We still need to re-roof an old storage bldg, and paint it, deck wood surface and steps..and sand and paint what we don't replace, plus finish the garage roof...all before the temps drop too much....of course we didn't need to repaint the whole house only it had to be done because of replacing some windows and fixing some fascia problems.. everything is more work than what the insurance company is asking because everything has to be repainted. Everyone I talk to says there insurance company has never done such a thing. the choice was to have an exterior assessment of the house by this independent assessor or get new insurance. We thought well it has a few issues but what ever well next time we just call a different insurance company...at the get go.. they said our name was selected randomly and a person can only be selected randomly every 11 years....some of the issues were things we had been putting off because of the weddings and college but needed to be done... over half though are not. they are just visual eye sore stuff that doesn't matter because we have no neighbors, etc... We have tried to haggled with them about some of the things and they only adjusted on one item...I just told DH we are fixing the ones we were planning on fixing, and then finding a new insurance company...sorry that venting took so long...

yes...
Its really my husbands fault because he knew it needed fixing and kept putting it off...but really we both thought supplies would have cost far more than it has so far...But it is hard to focus on one thing when there is so much to do...I made the mistake of buying the side entry door for the garage before.. the fascia on the house got painted...so last night he started working on it instead....

But I found a door for 5$ just needs a few adaptions...time we do not have...

I knowthere are MANY people at a papal audience,...but with my wheelchair, we may have pretty good seating

Pope Francis is sooooo personable...it will be excitng to see and listn to him in person

the audiences usually have the message in Italian, English, Spanish,...and maybe French,

I am so busy right now withthe Cubscout pack, I have 4 boys that are all getting done nd moving into a scout troop. so we are having a big Arrow of Light and Court of Honor...the first week of Oct..
I have signs and career arrows to make.

I only made 4 last year when DH made the arrow heads so he needs to make me 1 arrow head because my son is getting his early so i dont have to do another AOL in March...
So I am doing a ton more becasue I dont have a webelos leader right now...

My son will be the only webelos so we are moving a bear up that has finished so they can do webelos together. But I am hoping to get a webelos leader around the same time as the AOL so I will be able to relax until the Pine wood derby...and the Blue and GOLD

well, i never expected to go...and i know i don't have college costs to deal with...

but maybe you can convince DH to start an Italy trip fund! perhaps not for 3 weeks...but a week may be doable

or have your kids pool $$ together for an anniversary trip!

Or next time the kids say, "Mom, what do you want for Christmas?"

we're going to florence...but not venice...too far away from our other sites

plus, all those bridges and steps would be a real pain

i was disappointed at first. but now, I am thrilled we are taaking extra time in rome. we'll have "down" days with no formal plans. just sip a cappachino in the hotel piazza

I think your right Kim, that wheel chair maybe a plus...

is it narrower than a normal wheel chair?

I only ask because Wendy said how narrow some of the old buildings were in Germany...

well, let me just say this...

I got this w/c after I lost my baby... 19 years ago. It is narrow enough that my 48 year old hips just barely fit!

I am working on that

Love these ideas!

My lucky daughter is going to Ireland in a few weeks.

Her boy friend works for a company who needed to send someone there to get things organized in a company they bought..and because he's single they thought he was the best choice...
His parents are flying over to go site seeing with him and are paying to take my DD with them....
she is working like mad to do her classwork so she is ahead of schedule since she will be gone a week.

LOL! good luck! I have been workign on that too trying to get back where I was before the hell that was the last year...I have eaten a lot of comfort food.
But I feel better now and I think I am better able to deal with stuff like that if it happens again...so now I just need to eat less and keep moving hoping I can get back down where I was.. I am glad that I was able to make it through a year of ups and downs and not gain any weigh...I kept 40+ pounds off hoping I can lose the other 50+ again...

I shouldnt give other people that kind of power...

my sis and BIL went to Ireland...2x... the 2nd time they took my mom. It was the spring after dad passed away. He never would have been able to do an overseas trip because of health. I am glad my mom got over there...she needed a pick-me-up

oh, she must be THRILLED!
yes she is so excited...
I am glad she gets the opportunity.. I was a little jealous though... that I cant be the one to give my kids those opportunities... I am over it now though...
It just feels odd that all my kids are turning into world travelers...not good for a mom who is a worrier big time like me...but so far I am handling it.. and I dont feel anxious so all's good...

I am glad that I was able to make it through a year of ups and downs and not gain any weigh...I kept 40+ pounds off hoping I can lose the other 50+ again...

I shouldnt give other people that kind of power.. .
well, i think many of us struggle with that at some point

but good that you recognize it now...back to good health and upbeat spirits!

DO NOT feel that way, Kathy. I know my mom still struggles with that. Last month, my sister took her to Disney World with her family. And my mom apologized up and down for not taking us when we were kids. But but she, and you..have given your children a life time of teachings and and instructions and care and knowledge... There are more than travel and fun. Much, much more!

yes I feel like myself again, I think my shoulder is finally feeling better, but when the house is done I will probably stick to walking for a while...I just don't want to hurt that much again.. I am trying to stretch and work my shoulder to get my range of motion back
