I can’t believe it has been a whole month since I have written.  It has been a busy time for me.  It started with a call back on  my mammogram.  I tried to keep busy as I waited a week to go back for the retest and then Ihad to wait another week to get the results.  A lot went through my mind as I considered how much my life could change if the results were negative.  In the end I was given a positive result.  I need to retest in 6 months but everything seems to be OK.

I got over that hurtle and started to get ready to list our house for sale.  Lots of sorting out to do.  We finally decided to rent a storage unit for all my extra scrapbooking albums and some of the furniture just to give the rooms an airier look.  Then out of nowhere I was in excrutiating pain in my foot.  Not again.  I seem to get recurring gout about once a year.  This was the worst because I had so much I wanted to do but I could hardly walk.  Even my socks hurt my big toe.  Finally after two nights of no sleep I went to the doctor and got some meds.  It is really slow getting better this time because I can’t stay off it.

We listed our house on Saturday afternoon.  The first call came for a showing for Monday night.  It isn’t even on MLS yet.  I didn’t want any showings until Wednsesday because I didn’t think I could get the house ready but you never know what you can do until you have to.  We got our first offer tonight but it was too low and they wanted us to move out a month early.  No can do.

The nice thing is that my house is cleaner than usual.  Today we are off to pancake breakfast, parade and BBQ to celebrate Canada’s birthday.
