Counting Down ( in more ways than one!)

This summer is already turning out much different than I had planned. There has been lots of busy! We have already vacationed, which is a good thing. Just a little less than 4 days until the closing on our townhouse!

Packing up an artist is quite a challenge, especially when you are trying to be sure you don't damage anything. This is my husband's van (both back seats removed)  and by the time we were finished, it was completely full of one small piece of furniture, and the rest was artwork. Canvases, stretchers, ceramics, supplies, etc!
Edgar, waiting to pull out Saturday AM. We saved a space for a dog in each vehicle

After all the packing I had to have a little fun. Wondering if this chalkboard would look good in my breakfast room?
This little guy will arrive before I return from the closing on Friday. He will be staying with me for a week.

After a week with the little one. The busy will come to a screeching halt!!!

I will soon be counting down days until I have surgery! Found out today that I will be having surgery on one of my feet. ! I have been having a lot of  pain for quite some time. While we were on vacation my boy pointed out to me that my feet are not normal, and I should definitely have them checked out. They pain has gradually increased, so much so, that I cannot even walk for exercise.  I went and had them checked out today. Let's put it this way. The Dr. would not even talk to me about what my left foot needed, because the recovery time for my right foot will be approximately 6 weeks in a cast!!!! Boy was that a shock to me! Seems like at some point in time I have actually had a break on the top of my foot, and there is a bone fragment sticking up, not to mention the large bone spur above my heel due to, too tight tendons. Will have the right foot done, and then see exactly what may be needed for the left foot. Still processing the news.

It's so wonderful you get to enjoy the little guy before the surgery. AND then you get the enjoy the slowing down that the surgery will give you. May it all go exceedingly well!

Oh, my! Not the way you want to spend the rest of your summer! How good of the Lord to order things as He has, though, with your vacation, the townhouse sale, the visit with your grandson all behind you before you have to have surgery. His timing is ALWAYS perfect.

My goodness, you certainly have a lot on your plate. I hope everything goes well and you get some rest soon!

thanks for stopping by my blog....
I'm sorry to hear about your upcoming surgery! Well, I'm glad you'll hopefully have less pain, but the recovery seems brutal in the middle of summer. :(
