Life Gets in the Way

19 Jul

I am sorry I have dropped off the face of the planet for many months.  But life gets in the way. In February my husband was given a service dog that has changed our lives a great deal. In March we attended the National Winter Sports Clinic for Disabled Veterans at Snowmass in Aspen, CO.  In June we attended the National Veteran’s Wheelchair Games in Dallas, TX where he won a gold medal for Motorized Rally. In March his VA Claim was settled bumping him up to 100% and giving him additional payments for Aid and Attendence.  They also declared him incompetent to manage his own money and we are still waiting for that to all play out.  He was also approved for the Specially Adapted Housing Grant which has set a few other things into motion.

We decided that we don’t want to live in NY long term, and we are tired of winter.  So we are getting our house ready to sell so that we can move to the Tampa Florida area.  When I say “we” I of course mean me.  I am getting our house ready to sell.  We had all new floors installed and with a bit of paint touch up we are nearly ready to put the sign in the yard.

BUT – there is always a but we are now off to the New England Summer Sports Clinic in Providence, RI and then spending a week camping in Maine with my family.  So it will be at least August before we can get that sign out there.

Chances of selling our house quickly are low because we are NOT willing to sell it cheap just to sell it.  We need to find the right buyer, someone who will appreciate the view and the seclusion and the peace and quiet.

But even if it does not sell we are taking our camper and heading to warmer weather for this winter.  This girl is tired of snow and sickness and cold.

So that is a quick and dirty update friends and I do aspire to write more often.

      We will hopefully still come back to NY in the summer at least for July and August. I am hopeful that being full time near the SCI in Tampa will be great too. 🙂
