The news and other desesperations

It's hard. Harder than I thought, well no not true, it's as tough as I expected it but the fact that the begining have been easier made me believe that the rest would be piece of cake.

I was wrong. Having a fragile health makes it more complicated. I knew the importance of heat on my body. The importance of taking hot baths each day. (well don't believe I don't bathe or shower, I do but in warmish water) The importance of having confortable seats and place to be.

My muscles are screaming in pain every day. I don't really tell Husband, 'cause I don't want him to be more pressured that he is already. Fighting the pain that is there makes my energy going lower and lower to a point it might be dangerous.

The fact that we have no kind of support, especially by my parents make it harder. Dad helped us of course, but it's easy to see they find us crazy to do what we are doing. They just don't understand that if I would have stayed in the place I was, no recovery would have been possible. Of course now I am feeling worst than worst but I know that in a year of two, maybe sooner, I will be way better than I was.

Moving from the other place took us plenty of time. It might seem crazy but moving an whole house to another is already something, imagine when you are moving a whole house to one that isn't ready yet.

The renters didn't help really too, like they were asking like every two hours when we will be done. Plus, they damaged things in the other house and tried to make us responsible. A lovely couple ... :-(

We sent the tractor to our neighbor so he can be repaired. The numbers of repairs to be done are considerable but knowing that the tractor would have cost us just 1000$ is great thinking that we will be able to mow the lawn (would have cost us more than 1000$ per summer) and clean out the snow this winter (would have cost us 300$ per season or so) so it is paying by itself.

Husband is trying to solve the water problem in the bathroom. There was water coming out from one of the pipes and it was going through the floors and walls.

This afternoon he plans to install the dryer, let's pray the electic wire will be ok. If not, that will be more tricky to manage.

I don't give up.

It's over, it's done. It's super over and super done.
We are not townsmen anymore! We have been packing things in a truck from 9 am yesterday to 11 pm and from 6 am to 8:45 pm today.

Thanks God, our good friend, the Grizzly bear was there. (I still can come to the point I'll name people here) Without him and the help of my father nothing of this would have been possible.

This morning, I kicked myself out of bed to be able to join them and help them. With my disease, sleep is a very important issue. I have to have enough sleep.

Well the house is full of things everywhere. But as everyone's says : Step by step.

Wish me luck guys!

The house is now submerged by boxes. Everywhere. It looks like a maze!

Tic Tic Tic Tic Goes the Clock

9 days. That's the time remaining before we totally move here. To be honest, we already live here but let say, half of the stuff we have ain't the half of the stuff we own in this house. I am trying my best to put everything in order but this isn't easy according to the fact that everything has to be done.

As for the outside emergency renovation, that has been partly done. I'll say we have done 90%.
Winter is coming by and we will have to do something so we won't freeze during the season.

Husband took 4 days off from Oct 8 to Oct 12 and also from Oct 14 to Oct 17 that will help I am sure.

But I just wanted to tell you guys that I am fine, busy, tired, but fine.
