Good day all,

I’ve now had three straight nights of eight hours or better of sleep. All of this running around, packing, and now unpacking is taking its toll.

I’m sitting on the old sofa from home doing this and at the same time looking outside for Itchy. Kyle and I decided that we are just going to open the door and let the dogs run. I was extremely nervous about this, but had to try and see what would happen. Amazingly things have turned out perfectly. Little Licr comes running home after her run around the yard. She cruises the two acres then comes straight home. Itchy on the other hand is out running around our place and a couple of the neighbours too. She does come home though, it takes her a couple of hours, but she does. I was starting to wonder how long I was going to have to stay up and wait for her, when I looked up and there she was. Awe look at that there was Itchy Up on the deck looking in at us wanting in the house. We have such good girls. Some how it seems less scary letting them run here. They have freedom, and they always come racing back to us.

This morning was up with Kyle had a cup of coffee, bs’d a bit and on with my day. I made myself a to go cup of coffee and out the door I went. My first stop was to fill the car at a buck nineteen before they put the price up. Then off to Elnora. Elnora is where I needed to go to sign the paperwork for the transfer of my AADL coverage from the Crowsnest to up here. That was a quick stop. I then headed to my folks place to pick up the dogs. My folks have been baby sitting them since Thursday night.

It is so terrific to only have to drive an hour to get to my folks place. I arrived there chatted with my folks for a bit, then went out to see the dogs. I came back in and helped my mom do some stuff on the computer. My am was happy to get a bunch of stuff done that she had been wanting done for a long time. Being able to do that stuff for her brought me great joy.

I didn’t get back here until just after three. I unloaded a couple more boxes. Kyle was pooped as he had been a very busy bee the whole time I had been gone. The cleaning lady had also dropped by to pick up her second cheque. The fist one was the wrong total. She had to take fifteen percent off the bill after I had looked around the house and. Noticed a few things that I was not impressed with. I had taken pictures and emailed them to her and said that I was not happy. As a matter of fact what I said was that, “for the price I paid I am in no way okay with having to clean after you did.” I did of course clean what she didn’t, but I received the fifteen percent off. Better than a kick in the ass. Kyle gave her the new cheque as I was not here yet.

We went out for a surprisingly good dinner in Three Hills. We have now been at two restaurants up here and we have some damn good food up here.

It is late again. I need to be up and repaired because Telus is coming sometime tomorrow to put up the satellite. We will have TV tomorrow night. It is peaceful around here without it though. Really nice actually. I do have this though so not completely out of the loop. We sit on the sofa, the wood stove is burning. Flames are a crackling, dogs are snoring on the floor, does it get better than this? I don’t think so. Good night, and God Bless.

Love and hugs Fiona:-)

Good day,

The amazing part of this move is that my wheelchair, walker and cane were all the last items out of the house. When two and a half years ago that would have had to have been the first, plus a whole bunch more stuff that I no longer require. There would have been boxes and more boxes of diapers and the like. Today was our last day of transporting goods and my few items were the last of my goodies. This brings big smiles to my face.

I have to admit my legs and body are extremely worn out, I have earned it though. It has been a VERY long couple of weeks. I ended up having a nap in the truck this afternoon when Kyle and Dave were loading up the last odds and ends. Dave is the new owner of our old house. It was kind of him to help Kyle.

We have a couple of last stops before getting home tonight. One is to fuel up yet again. I’m telling you moving four hours away is hard on the fuel tank. I think we have spent a little over six hundred bucks on fuel over the last two days. Between my car, Kyle’s truck, and the U Haul. Crazy amount of money to get things done. Then our last stop will be in Irricana on our way by to sign our tax papers. This is another great thing my accountant will again only be forty-five minutes away.

Finally after another very long day we will be home. We are both very tired. Sadly I have finally upset Kyle. I certainly didn’t mean to, we’re both exhausted and I said something I shouldn’t have. I must say it took me quite awhile to say the wrong thing, that’s something I suppose. ;-) it comes down to the fact that Kyle has great faith that no matter what, things always work out as they should. I do to with the exception of finances. He has this amazing stillness. Where as I am a fuss pot about nearly everything. I of course am nervous about finances where Kyle just smiles and carries on. I can only pray someday I will have what he has.

Our new home is SO beautiful. With a little tender, love, and care our home together will be perfect. Our home, that we chose, all of this is amazing to say. I was sitting on the sofa yesterday watching out the window. I was watching Kyle buzzing in and out of his new shop at the bottom of the hill. My heart swelled some knowing how happy he was going to be here. He has worked hard his whole life and deserves all that life has to offer him. I am excited to receive some of his treasures he will be making.

I am happy to say that some of my pain has subsided since going back on my Gabpentin, at least the neurological pain anyways. My muscle spasms were back with a fiery last night and today though. I’m am the two things are very different. My spasms have lessened in frequency since going back on it, certainly not the severity. It’s been a very long day for everyone today. We just pulled out of the accountants. It was nice to see that we both received a refund. I was overjoyed to see that I had anything. I was a big seventeen dollars, certainly better than nothing. Kyle of course having a job looking much better than mine.

I’m falling asleep. We are nearly home. This is a very good thing because I really have nothing left. Our new home..

Our new home..

Our new home..

Love and hugs Fiona :-)

Good day

20140413-214922.jpg this is the beautiful view from our new front window. I’m in love, I can’t wait until my first sunrise with this view.
I love you all and would share away, but I’m very tired. Been moving for two solid days. I have already unpacked ten boxes. As is at this moment it’s bedtime. We have another long day tomorrow, but I’ll be a passenger so I’ll be able to share about last few days.

Love and hugs Fiona:-)

Difference of 24 hours

Good day,

House is empty. I’m exhausted. I actually was in my wheelchair for a rest a few times today. We are at a friends place spending the night. Everything we own is in a truck. I have steadily been on the move since six-thirty this morning.
It’s almost ten. I’m too tired for this.

Love and hugs Fiona:-)
