I just wanted to drop a few lines and tell everyone I am doing good, I had a doctor's appointment on Thursday and it went very well. I really like this doctor is trying his best to help me. Things at home are not overwhelming anymore. YAY!! And my nasty thoughts are gone... YAY!! We have been getting our house ready to do an Open house on Sept. 15th so anyone who is looking to buy a home in Ohio let me know.LOL! I posted the house online.

Today we are going to be triming the trees and bushes around the house. I will be doing my flower beds. Which normally I dont do because winter is coming. But all in all I am doing good. Well I just wanted to drop in and say hello and Happy Labor day to you all. Sam

Hi Sam!!

Glad you're doing better. Take it easy getting the house ready to sell. I went through that last September and it sure takes its toll.

Hugs,
Christy
Love makes the world go around!

Sam,
Glad to hear from you! You are in my thoughts and I am so happy to hear that you are doing well. Don't push too hard! Getting a house on the market is a lot of work - I know that it can be very stressful, but your attitude is fabulous. I am sending you a big hug and some positive energy! Good luck with the house. Don't forget to take time for yourself to renew and heal!

Glad to read that you are feeling better, Sam. Please take it easy. You know that false sense we get when we feel better. Have a good Labor Day but don't labor too much.

Big Hugs,
Janey

Glad to hear you are feeling better Sam. Try to enjoy the holiday without working too hard in the yard.
I may have Scleroderma, but Scleroderma doesn't have me!

Hi Sam - nice to hear you're feeling better. But I agree with everyone else - don't overdo. Selling a house is a long process and you'll need to pace yourself to keep your strength. I have several friends who sold their homes and they were physically okay but boy, it sure it's toll on them! Take care of yourself.

Sam:

I am so happy you're on the upswing and feeling better. In reality, this move could be a blessing. A whole new beginning is the change I think most of us could use. Decorating the new homestead and creative ideas take over. Wishing you all the best in your new adventure.

Hey Sam,

Glad to hear from you so soon!

Getting your hands dirty in the garden can be very grounding and therapeutic. Good for you. Hope you have nice weather for it and hope you get a lot done with no pain!!!

That's so good to hear that you're feeling better and that your doctor is trying to help as best as he can! I hope things continue to be less overwhelming for you at home. Being overwhelmed is my least favorite thing.

Hang in there & keep taking care of yourself... have fun in the flower bed!

I am sooooooooo glad to hear you are doing better. It's great when a doctor's appointment goes as well as your did. I wish you all the luck on selling your house. This is a good time to sell right before the winter and I hope it moves quickly for you. Please don't overdo it. How exciting to be moving into a new house and start nesting all over again. It will lots of fun, some work too, but still lots of fun. Continue to do so well...................

warm hugs,

Peggy
