It’s hard finding a balance between work, rehab and quality time. Phew. We still are muddling through that. One thing I have to keep doing is exercise. Yes, the rehab stuff is functional exercise, but it can’t replace the bike!
I have to say that I love how much easier rehab is when you have a good strength training routine already in place. I am not sore after doing anything and it enables me to work longer. Not that I am not tired, because I am, but not sore – which makes all the difference in the world as far as motivation to keep going.
Slow progress is being made. We got the hot water tank and lines tested and no leaks – YAY! Now to actually turn on the hot water heater and the heating system. We have a professional coming out to do that on Wednesday to make sure that is on the up and up. Once that is up and running, I will feel a lot better. That’s the last really big unknown.
Our house is now on the market. Not sure if it will sell or not this fall. Obviously we hope so, but we are willing to take it off the market and relist in the spring when there is more activity. I don’t really want to own 2 houses that long, but I can’t control the market, as much as I would really like to!
I moved some furniture around trying to make the living room inviting with my mish mash of styles.
Trying to hide our old couch 😀 We are not taking that with us. I have 3 of these chests, which are kind of boring, but useful for storage. I painted this one and brought it down from the bedroom. It still has our sheets and blankets in it LOL!
With having a hair ejection machine in the house, I decided I didn’t want to be vacuuming the area rug daily, so we rolled it up and took it to the new place. That’s why I brought down the chest because the room was looking like everything was pushed to the edges.
You know how I say things look a lot worse before they start looking better with rehab? Check out our kitchen!
This was progress for tonight. Countertops are gone. We will be pulling out that base cabinet with the plumbing as it is not salvagable, but all other cabinets are good!
The next step is seeing how hard it is to sink outlets into the cement walls. Finish up wallpaper and then we can start putting the room back together. That’s the fun stuff.
My mother came over and helped strip wallpaper in the kitchen last night and tonight, so we treated her to some Sweet Frog!
We are willing to bribe people to help 😀
