Well.. now you know my brother's famous!!!

He does white collar crime/extortion with the white plains office of the FBI...

Now that he has made the NY times, the NY post and the Times Union... there will be NO living with him...

he won't have to worry about the being undercover bit... by law he has to retire at 57... he'll go into a cushy job doing security for some company. he's always wanted to work for one of the sports teams... but I imagine they will stay close to jersey.. his wife is FBI support and won't retire for a while yet.

Hi all....today is a day off. No packing. Good thing too because I'm not feeling well. This always happens when I push myself, I get sick. That's why we have been doing every other day for the packing. Somehow it still got me. I've been drinking tea with honey and it's helping some with the throad and the cough. I still have the tummy bug going on. I took some meds for that. Hopefully I'll feel better soon.

We leave next weekend for Florida. My agent is telling me that there is nothing available in Haines City or Davenport. She has me seeing places in South Clermont. So we will see what she has to show us. But I have been looking on craigslist in Haines City and Davenport and there's lots of places that are single story and unfurnished with a pool. Many of the homes that the agent has available and even on craigslist, are furnished. I would have to store all their furniture and put in mine. I don't want to use someone else's furniure....especially someone else's beds.

I will see what Sharon, our agent, shows us and if we don't like the homes or the area, then we will do it ourselves using craigslist. That's what we did when we looked in December and that's how we found Sharon. We liked her and the homes that she showed us. She told us that she switched brokerages, but I'm wondering if they cover a different territory now. I thought that everybody worked off of the same listings.

I'm going back to bed....

The dreaded stones ala kidney have returned...

I'd share it on FB... but right now my brother also has one and I don't want to take away all of the fun he's having... (ok... maybe not...)


Hold down the fort while I'm gone....

One more week and we go back down to Florida. I'm getting anxious to get going and see what's available. John and I decided that we definitely want a 4 BR 3 BA. We need the extra bedrooms for all the guests we anticipate having. We will use the extra rooms as an office for me and an office for John when we don't have guests. We need the bathrooms for him and me and guests. Casey already said he's coming down in October to stay with us and we don't even have a place yet. haha.

Michelle, I hope you're feeling a little bit better today. I know those stones take a while to work themselves out of you. Hope it's quick and easy this time. Hugs.

We're working on cleaning out my back bedroom....I call it my dressing room. I have my grandmother's furniture in there, including her vanity. Well John got to see first hand how many bags and shoes I really do have. He said, you really do have a lot of shoes. Most of them went to goodwill, but a lot still came with us. What can I say, I like shoes and bags and girly things.

Hi Thieves.....well we're done with one of the back bedrooms...mine. I called it my dressing room. It had all my stuff in it. Now we just have John's back room, which I don't have to do. YAY! So other than assisting, I'm finished with all my things. Just have the last minute stuff to do. I'm so relieved. I think we'll sign a lease next week in Florida and get the house for May 1st. But we won't be able to move in until May 15th or so. We need to save up again for the money for the movers. It's an expensive endeavor. We're doing a little bit at a time as we can afford. I'm anxious and can't wait to get down there to see some houses. I'm hoping we get an address.

We leave in just two more days....on Sunday. We pick up a large passenger van and load it up with boxes of special things that we are taking down to Florida. Then we find a storage place down there to put everything in temporarily. We have two good places that we're looking at and then two places that Monica found us. So I'm hopeful that we will love one of them and it will all work out for us to finally get an address.

It's going to be a busy trip. We'll arrive on Monday, check into our hotel room and crash. Tuesday we'll look at the homes. Tuesday night is dinner with Monica. YAY! Wednesday we'll sign the papers. I like to sleep on it overnight. Thursday we'll see my cousin Doug in Bradenton. Friday we check out of the hotel and head home. I'm also trying to see Uncle Teddy in Daytona Beach, Sandi in Rockledge, my brother in Jacksonville, Lisa and Darrell in Jacksonville and Casey in Virginia. I don't think we're going to make it. We're not going to have enough time to see everyone. Our main concern is to come home with a new address.

I just had to put the heat on this morning. It's cold and dark and wet here today.

John went to the VA this week. He's all signed in and he got his meds. He's been out of them for weeks and he was really having a hard time, especially while packing. They gave him some Nicoderm patches and told him to quit smoking. No kidding. He wants to, he's just not ready to do it yet. It takes a lot of concentration and it's a lot of work to fight it all day, every day for about a year. Then it gets easier. But you have to do the hard work first and there's just too much going on right now for him to focus on quitting. He'll do it when he's ready.

Since John retired, we no longer have our great healthcare with the University.....it would have cost us $2k a month to maintain. So he went to the VA because he can. I'm not eligible for the VA since he was not married to me when he served. So I'm on Medicare and I had to get a supplemental insurance thru AARP and a perscription drug program thru AARP. It costs me $265 for all of them, plus copays for the drugs. But they have my meds tiered to determine the copay. Three of them I can't afford anymore so I'll stop taking them and ask my doctor if he can prescribe something else. One of them they won't cover at all, so that one is out too. Basically, I have four medications that I won't be taking anymore and it scares me. I know how bad I felt and how sick I was before I started finding the right doctors and getting the right diagnoses and perscriptions. I'm going to miss having great healthcare coverage for no expense to me except for low copays for doctors and drugs.
