Good news on the horizon

I finally got the call from the diabetes clinic. My A1C is 7.1% Tomorrow I'll book my follow up appointment with the fertility clinic and see about getting ISU ASAP.

(It's about frigging time I got my A1C down, I've been working on the bastarding thing for 2 years now!)

Garage Sale Saturday

I've spent most of last week helping my mother set up for a garage sale. Fortunately she's let me off actual garage sale duty (probably because if someone asked me if they could have a diamond studded, 24 carat tiara fora buck I'd say sure) ;)

So today husband and I are going to go out garage sailing. I'll post if we buy anything special (like a 1908 Bell upright grande piano). hee hee hee, I can't believe I got a 1908 Bell upright grande piano at a garage sale. Can you say lucky?!?!?!?

I went out for lunch with Mike (the ex boyfriend from 6 years ago). It was nice to catch up.

Busy busy busy

Chris and I have spent the day working like dogs! We were talking to a realtor (Little Miss Curious went to an open house down the street) and have an appointment to have the house assessed on Tuesday to see approximately how much we can list it for.

To make the living room look bigger we moved the TV into the corner and turned the couch/coffee table et al 90 degrees. I'm amazed at the difference it's made, the room looks 100% bigger! If we'd known it would have this effect we would have done it this way in the first place. We won't be able to have surround sound because Chris wired the speakers to the TVs old position and it's too much work to thread the wires through the walls to the new position so we'll have to suffer with stereo sound but c'est la vie eh?

We've got 3 days to get the house ship shape so it can be assessed. Not much work involved, just some tidying.

Heigh Ho Heigh Ho

It's home from work I go...

I just finished my last day at my former assignment. I was with the Regional Capacity Assessment Team for just over a month and I really enjoyed myself.

On Monday Chris and I are going to the general meeting for prospective foster parents. We're hoping to become foster parents and do some good for our community. I'll let you know how that goes when the time comes.

We're going to Ontario in May for my cousin John's wedding. That should be fun. I'm not looking forward to a 4 hour plane ride followed by 3 hours in a car with my mother but I suppose I'll have to suck it up!
