Only one week end remaining before Ron's surgery.  We are both anxious to get it over with and get him home to recover.  Last night he talked to one of his aunts who had the upper lobe of her right lung removed due to the spread of colon cancer.  She told him it wasn't so bad so that seemed to reassure him.  I think we are just ready to find out if it is malignant and if it is renal cell carcinoma.  They told us it could be a different cancer altogether.   So the countdown continues.

We were really busy over the weekend.  We didn't even make it to church yesterday because we had so many things on our list to get done.  We brought Mike over for a little while but his attention span is so short he was ready to go home after an hour.

He stopped buying an extra sandwich for his refrigerator.  I talked to Ralph at Subway and he's also watching out for Mike.  We threw away 12 sandwiches and there were 4 in the freezer.  I can't think like a schizophrenic so I'm always trying to figure out what's going on in his head.  Mike describes himself as Cosmic!!!!!  I have to agree.

I've been on a quest to lower the cost of everything.  I started with the house and lowered the monthly payment by $80.00 by refinancing it on a special plan offered by my credit union.  No closing costs required and it is only a 5 year loan.  

Then I negotiated with ATT Uverse and got them to upgrade our television service for $50.00 less than what we were paying and Mike's for $95.00 less.  (Ron was thrilled with this one because he now has more sports channels and a DVR)

Next I lowered our home/auto insurance by a total of $1,000 by comparing companies.

I'm thinking about bartering with Walmart next!!!!
