Curt's Best Shots Slideshow

Hey All!

Gosh I've missed you guys and blogging, and creating, and. . .well, I can tell you I haven't missed painting! LOL  Just wanted to let you know the deed is just about done.  The house went on the market today.  I'm still "finishing up" on things around here and then it is just a matter of it being shown.  If you are interested, here is the LISTING.

I have kind of mixed emotions.  I will miss this house a lot, but the house we have our eyes on is still available and that makes this a little bit easier to take.  I'll keep you all posted.

Again, thanks so much for all of your encouragement and wonderful supportive comments.  This has been a ton of anxiety for me, but your thoughtful, caring comments have really made a difference.

I love you guys, and can't wait for things to settle down and get back to "normal".  I'm going to try and sit down this week and visit you all to see what you have been up to.  I hope you are all well!

Hey All!

I'm so sorry to have been missing in action these past few weeks.  Thanks so much for wondering about me and the wonderful notes checking in.  I thought I better get on here and at least tell you what is going on so that you don't need to worry.

As you know, Jay has MS and I'm his caregiver.  Quite honestly, the medical bills/insurance is getting to be a bit much for our financial situation.  Because of this, we have decided to sell our beloved home and find something a bit more affordable.  So we are, for all intents and purposes, downsizing.  It has been quite the undertaking for me.  Trying to get the house in "showing" status has been and is a ton of work for me.  Jay is not the best "driver" of his electric wheelchair, so walls and such need repair and painting.  I've hired contractors for what I can't do and I'm doing all the rest.  I want the house to show well, so I'm repainting several rooms.  I'm also going through all of our "stuff" to get rid of all the crap that has built up over these past 12 years in this house so the impending move will be easier.  So, dealing with all the contractors, meeting with agents, and all the physical work that I need to do, I've just not had the energy or the time to "create".

I wanted to let you know what was going on so now you know.  I'd appreciate all the "keeping good thoughts" for us.  We have our eyes and hearts set on another house, but we must sell ours first.  So we need you to keep your fingers crossed that our house sells fast and the other one doesn't!  LOL

Thanks for thinking of us.  You don't know what it means to me.

Hugs,  Curt
