What A Difference A Day Makes

Well, it's over.....Ron and I now own one and two thirds homes.  The deed has been transferred and this miserable episode in my life is now over.  Mike was thrilled when we told him.  Ron teased him saying he now owned one bedroom and one bathroom in Mike's house. I claimed the kitchen and half the garage.  Mike just laughed and seemed genuinely happy.  I promised him that he will live in that house as long as he wants and that nothing will change without all 3 of us being involved in the decision.

Today I see the orthopedist.  I'm doing much better now that I am able to continue taking my arthritis medication.  I'm going to continue to nurse my knee along because I'm not ready for knee replacement yet.  

My daughters reported back to school this morning.  Another school year begins!  I'll be helping out when ever I can and I'm excited to see some of the kiddos again.

Now if we could just skip through the rest of this election year I'd be one happy camper.  I'm just so sick of hearing all the rhetoric and nastiness.  Not to mention the shear stupidity!

So glad you were able to work out the house problems!
Have you considered getting injections in your knees? I was leary about them but they have been great for me--movement has been restored and I no longer limp! Just a thought...

Judy injections are next on the treatment plan.

So happy for you! You sound like the best sister. I agree about the election- I have decided I need to campaign though for Hillary. The alternative just sickens me and I live in a Republican bastion. Is that the right word? I'll have to look it up LOL.

I'm sick of the elections, too, but afraid the worst is yet to come. I am so tired of looking at Donald Trump and hearing his ignorant comments, I could spit. And, don't get me started on his equally ignorant followers. I keep trying to ignore the campaigns, but they're as hard to ignore as the Olympics, which I'm also ignoring.

That is really great news! Congrats on a plan coming together.

I am so glad that you and your husband were able to work things out so that Mike could remain in his stable home.

One more thing. You probably have not heard the last of the money crises from your brother, his wife, and her son. My advice is to keep some distance and boundaries because the money from the house is probably already gone. They know a soft touch and they will be back. IMHO.

Oh Florence, you are so right! I am going to set up boundaries. It won't be hard because our time is spent taking care of Mike.
