I am not even sure where to start.
“The Universe Always Conspires to Help the Dreamer” – Paulo Coelho
First and foremost – I could not agree with that any more than I do right now. I have always believed that what you think about, you bring about and the Law of Attraction. But at this point in our life, it has never been more evident.
We signed all the documents before we left and on April 12th the Realtor listed our house. 5 days later we accepted an offer over list price. Later the same day we had our offer accepted on the “little house” in Port Charlotte. We had the inspection on the Michigan house last Thursday and the buyers accepted the house as is. We got the results of the inspection the little house on Sunday, and on Monday we asked for a price reduction due to the roof needing replace like Yesterday! Today we got word they accepted the concession!
I am never for one moment assuming that everything is just going to happen and be perfect. I can say deep inside I have very little fear and I know this will all work out in the end. There are bumps along the way. Like the roof. And we will get through them. We have to just keep believing and moving forward.
One other little FUN FACT we found out while down in Florida the last couple weeks…we have Endangered tortoise on our build property, they😣 are being rehomed today. The builder is splitting the cost with us because he didn’t know they were they when he sold us the property. It’s not cheap I can tell you that!
We had an amazing time with our Grandson at Disney for 5 days and then we drove over to Port Charlotte for 5 days to meet with the builder and house hunt. In between those activities, we checked out the area and took our grandson to the Gulf of Mexico twice. The water was super nice and he had a BALLL! We hunted for shark teeth – Each time he found a sea shell he insisted it was a shark tooth! I argued for a while, then I decided it didn’t matter 🙂 and I let him have fun and think he found a shark tooth 😄
I crept back up to about 137 and am now in the removal mode. I think I will see a bit of fast progress – mainly because I A) started following the 21 Day Fix meal plan so my calories are automatically being kept in check and B) I have been given strict orders from my DR to save my drinking for “occasionally” and not daily. I have found myself with an amazing case of reflux. Seems when you drink, the alcohol not only relaxes you, it relaxes the muscle that holds your acid in your tummy. SO when you lay down it just splashes right up into your esophagus and over time you are is some serious pain. And if that does not make you think twice about not drinking so much, the acid in time will give you cancer. Nice! I quit smoking to not get cancer….now I have to cut my drinking WAYYYY back. It’s all good and needed anyway. I will find other ways to de-stress and relax – I am sure my hubby will help me 😆
OK OFF I need to go to workout at lunch. Tomorrow is the Appraisal on the Michigan house, just want the final closing date guaranteed.
OH and the numbers in the title…25 days until we close on the Michigan house, 28 days until we close on the Florida house, 53 days until we move and 125 days until I am 50!
