In 18 days, we will say goodbye to our home of almost 14 years.
In my post ‘Exciting times ahead‘, I wrote the following –
Let’s get caught up on the other important events taking place. The house appraisal was completed a little over a week ago and the results were all good. The home sale continues to proceed without issues and we are still on the calendar to close on August 2nd. Gary and I continue to downsize possessions while we also have administrative duties taking place such as updating address on all our accounts. In 2 weeks a PODS container will be delivered and parked in our driveway. The PODS container will be packed with items and possessions we are keeping for our future home. Once the PODS container is filled, it will be picked up and stored locally here in the Dallas area until we are ready for it.
In today’s post, I write the following –
The PODS container was delivered yesterday. Items we are keeping and storing are now starting to make their way into the container. Much downsizing has taken place over the past year and a little more to go with regards to ridding of un-needed items. Tomorrow we are having an Estate Sale and hope to downsize considerably more items. The PODS container will be sitting in our driveway for 2 weeks at which time it will be picked up and stored.
Last week Gary and I had the pleasure of meeting one of the future owners of our home. The future home owners had an appointment to have painters come to the house for an estimate. The future owners will be repainting several rooms in the interior and needed access to the home. Gary and I decided to stay and we met the wife/mom of the family that will be moving in shortly. She is extremely excited about moving in and loves this home very much. Gary and I know, when we leave our home, it will be a home for a vibrant young couple with very young children. We are happy.
My final appointment with my urologist Dr. F. was last week at which time I received all my medical records for my next doctors. When we leave Dallas on August 2nd, we will make our may to Pensacola Florida the location of my next surgery. My new primary care manager is selected and appointment scheduled for August 8th. Because Gary is a military veteran and I am his spouse I have access to the healthcare system at the Naval Air Station Pensacola. Once the primary care manager appointment is complete, a referral will be submitted then an appointment will be scheduled with the urologist at the Naval Air Station medical facility. Once the urologist consultation takes place, we will proceed with the best course of action to take care of my bladder cancer.
The days are coming and going and many activities continue to take place. This chapter will soon be over and the next one will begin.
18 days and counting!
