I had intended to post yesterday, but the day got away from me. Lucy, the Springer, ended the day with 2 seizures. The first one was so light, that I thought we would be good, but the second one was pretty bad. I had a pacing dog until late last night. She goes to our vet this afternoon. I am praying he will have some new ideas. She has full blown incontinence on some days. She is wearing diapers. She doesn't seem to mind them.
As you can see, this dog lover is struggling.
In other news, I had planned to post yesterday. I have quite a few things other than just the normal interruptions of life to write about. Good things like new cookbooks, refreshing rooms in the house, the things we girls like to read about.
I had not planned to share this bit of news with you until next week, but this news interrupted my morning for about 3 hours yesterday. I never caught up.
My son is buying that house. My husband and I have been praying for him so long. He has made a lot of progress. He has some money that his grandparents left him. We finally decided it was time to look. We were looking for a cheap fixer upper, but not too fixer upper. I was about to give up on finding one in the price range that we were looking for. Either they were too old, too messed up, or in a neighborhood I didn't like.
Then a VA repo came on the market in the perfect location. It took three tries to get it. The VA did not work like anything I had ever dealt with in the real estate market. Of course, it is a buy as is, and you really don't have time to do an official inspection. We have had a builder friend look, so we are fairly certain that there are no catastrophic problems. Just a few things here and there.
IT is by far the worst looking house on the street, so we should be hits with the neighbors as we make it look better month by month.
|House across the street. I am sure they will be happy for it to look better.|
|This one is right next door. I told you the one we are buying is the worst. The baseball field where we spent countless evenings and weekends at is right around the corner. I could hear the ping of the bats the other day.|
I will be very busy getting all of the work done. We have to paint the whole house, clean, replace a door to name a few.
He is very excited as he should be. I will share more on this later, but that is where my day went.
Here are a few pictures of the interior.
This is one of the bathrooms. It appears throughout that some remodeling had been done, but not all.
All of the interior doors are new.
The kitchen had new cabinets. They are cheap ones, but new. There are also new windows and blinds in the house.
|I am appliance shopping today.|
It has hardwood floors all through out. They are in good shape and are newer. This is the living room looking out to a HUGE backyard. We have to replace that door. It is rotten on the outside.
Oh, we were able to get a termite inspection. That was all good.
The side yard was fixed for a dog. There is a doggie door out the laundry room door and fenced in.
Then beyond the side yard. A couple of views of the back yard. No grass😥
|Horseshoes set up in the very back.|
I will be busy friends.
My sweet Lucy can't get enough water. I have had to remove the water bowl from her because of the incontinence. I heard the bowl hit the floor while I was in the bath. I came into find her asleep with the bowl. Y'all I am worried about my baby. Struggling.
Be back soon,
