If You Miss One Blog
Wednesday, February 06, 2019
If you miss one blog--time swallows you--it must because it has been five days.
We found a house!
We had looked online and put our houses in order of our favorites and then chose five. Then of those five we looked at the things we had to have and things we would like to have.
Before we got a chance, our number one house went under contract.
Then Friday afternoon while I was getting the car loaded for our trip a new listing came up. Nothing fancy, no new and shiny updates like the others but it checked our boxes and there was just something about it that called to me, including a huge screened back porch.
I called my husband to have a look and then called the realtor and asked if we could squeeze it in. It ended up being the one. It has great bones and we can move right in if we wanted but we hope to do some painting and a few other things. But we made an offer Monday and they countered and we accepted!
It will be our second home until DH can retire but we will be 2 minutes from our son and we can spend the weekends and holidays there getting it ready for the big move one day.
In the meantime---all my best laid plans went out the window eating wise. I had a terrible time at the hotel and ended up in some major back pain Saturday. It was terrible getting in and out of the car at every stop but somehow I managed to get through it all and the realtor was understanding.
I came home and spent my usual Monday recuperating but did not get back on eating plan today nor did I do my weights yesterday.
I am using this blog as my confessional because I know I have inflammation in my body and my weight will be up tomorrow. I will not throw in the towel. I went shopping today and bought veggies and meats and passed by the sweets and the sodas so I am armed for tomorrow.
Sweet dreams everyone...
