Now come on, you didn't think I would settle for a mere Hip Replacement, did you?? (Bring it on.)



What does one do after moving to a new school, suffering a broken hip, enduring hip replacement surgery and realizing that you CAN'T support two households?







You move.




In fact, you move (and pack during your MEDICAL TIME OFF) from a lovely three bedroom, three-story home in the country, to a quaint one story, single bathroom,  three bedroom duplex located THREE blocks from your new school.






Oh, please, don't worry about me.   He can't throw my any curve ball that I can't hit out of the park. (I'm one of His most entertaining projects.)






(Now if you'll excuse me, I have enlisted everyone I know to help me pack up my heart and my home and begin yet another new adventure...isn't life grand?)

I'm so impressed by how you manage to deal so positively with all the challenges. It really does get easier when your kids are older. Hand in there, there are great years ahead.

Good luck with your move. Sure you'll make the new place 'home' in no time without some of the stresses that the bigger, multi-story house had.

Take care,
Pam

Oh, Vodka...I'm literally in tears over here. I know how much you ADORED your perfect little house. I'm so sorry.

The way you are ALWAYS able to focus on the positive amazes me. You are truly my hero.

I heart you. A lot.

I think being close to school will really bring you some great extra minutes in your day. I live 1 mile from my son's school and it is a joy to be 2 minutes away.

I'm so sorry to hear you have to move from your lovely house. I know you will make your new place your home in quick order.

Holy crap! That ex of yours needs to get off of his big butt & get a job!!!!

Wish you the best!

Each left turn is a challenge....but I can't worry about anything except being happy.


Live each day, everyone. (Even if sometimes it hurts.)

If this keeps you from wandering up the side of a mountain to hurt yourself again...

I hope this move is only temporary. (Before Prince Charming moves you into the royal castle sometime in the mid-term future. Right?)

Ain't I a stinker?

Sending prayers, hugs and love as you make this move. The only thing you can control is your reaction and your attitude is wonderful. Wish I could drive up to help you. take care of yourself and let others take care of you.

Oh, Debbie... with a smile on your face keep moving on... now pack those boxes and start some new memories... Quaint is good... fill it with laughter .. it's the best medicine.

VM--the best thing you can do is move far away from that evil,evil log. And a teeny tiny commute is one of God's gifts. Walking through your door mere moments after leaving work is a wonderful feeling...

If I were closer I would be happy to volunteer to help you. But I will be there with you in spirit :-)

Have you been reading Doonesbury? Joanie had a hip replacement, too.

Gigi said...

Since I can't be there to help, I'm sending lots and lots of hugs.

I'm a lurker and infrequently comment. I don't know the details of your situation, nor do I desire to, however I have to say that I am baffled as to why you have to support he who shall not be named? I gather that shall not be named is unemployed, however why is it your responsibility to support him? Your children, yes, you would and should support them, but HIM?


SMH. Wishing you the best.

This may not be the appropriate venue for a scientific question, but what happens to parasites when their host organisms are no longer legally obligated to provide for their existence (fact: most parasites are invertebrates)?
