Sd-wow can't believe how fast that went. So nice she has bunnies to watch. W/ Dmom it's squirrels. She has black,grey and the brown and a million things to say about each one. It's so bad I give her peanuts in shell unsalted as part of her Christmas gift. She misses having a dog or cat. Sometimes I am tempted to find an old one at the pound but then that would be one headache after another.

We took the dog (dh's) to the bark park. And surprisingly he did well. He was sniffed and sniffed other dogs. He gets intimidated so we watch him. And he did a few little Grrr's but I'm ok w/ that because the change was radical from a few years ago. This dog used to bark everyone in sight of the car and jump from seat to seat while I drove. He still isn't relaxed but we are going to practice more. I was a blast there though. And for some reason big dog day. We saw a Pharoh hound,St. Bernard,Great Dane,Great Pyrannese,several huskies and a herd of lab mixes. I just love trying to "guess that breed mix?". We stopped at a coney carryout place. I laughed at Dh. I sent him in for fries,2 coneys and a hot dog. So
he gets Yogi a chili dog like us. He was great w/ me when Dh left and at the picnic table even though there was an unattended Dashund there. There is hope!
We needed a day out.

Got 1 shelf done in the pantry. Watched the voices. It's a comedy about a serial
killer who hears voices in the form of his dog and cat. It's super kitchy and bad. I highly recommend it.

Nope... come home Saturday to another letter from the Trusttee or rather Bankruptcy court and neither of us have any clue what it is or means. It didn't have the CC at the end so it wasn't sent to the attorneys office. Last day of BK was April 27th but still hasn't been discharged. Normal but we don't know what this letter ( form letter but still ) is ... Would call today but I'm off Mondays and if they need something faxed I can't do it from home so trying to have patience and wait until tomorrow where I can fax if necessary. They're going to have to lead me thru it as there's a bunch of blank lines that look as if they need to be filled in and ... crap in a basket... I don't know what they're even asking.

Today since I've done hardly anything most of the weekend but worry

Doggy blankets washed
Dogs bathed ( didn't do last weekend )
Mop downstairs
unload dishwasher .. did them yesterday
wash at least one load and put a bunch away. They're piling up again bad .. as usual
bathroom trash out
going to try to fix something cooked ahead of time today to help with supper tomorrow night along with today.
Change bed
MAYBE was blankets too. REALLY reaching here.

Might not get all of this done. I'm know I'm reaching here. But also know I WILL get some other stuff done along the way. I'm one of those people who goes to do something in one room and that leads to another room which leads to... and on and on. Always been that way. I'm good with it. LOng as crap gets done.

Can't call today. Well... I could but if they ( the attorneys office ) want a copy faxed to them I can't do it from home. So it's best to wait until tomorrow so I don't have to call back a second time. I'll wait as hard as it is.

Top that with a load of crap from Bank of America... otherwise known as Bank of Hell... and that's a sample of the BS we've had lately.

Not progressing here very well. Have one load done. Another going in soon. Fixed supper so to speak. Sloppy Joes but don't know if I fixed enough to go another night. Maybe. I'd be happy with one night ahead.

Niko, I thought you were done with bank from hell? I got rid of All mine when you started having trouble,, Sending up prayers you are done with this for good. Keep positive thoughts, it might be the papers for dismissal... keeping my fingers crossed for you.

Yep RABBIT, snow.. I am never going to get the garden planted!

Dh took pictures of the cheery trees into the soil conservation, place toiday, our trees got hit really bad with that winter vortex this winter, they hardly have any leafs, we need to fertilize then trim if they dont grow,, sob,, no fruit aagain.?

I wont be on till late tomorrow, got to go back to Dr, having Big problems with this new statin, will let you know how it goes.. I hate this, I was feeling great, now I hurt so bad I just want to lay in bed...

Take care everyone

Everyone's been busy. Me, too, I guess.

7,000 steps today. I'm sort of surprised because it was mostly in Mom's new house. Husby emptied the second locker and then we both went over and took the stuff off the walls out of the apartment, so everything is finally moved. :whew: It didn't seem like we'd ever get to this point. The movers brought the last of her furniture and everything fits in nicely, so that's something. I made a dent in the mess in her kitchen and rearranged the furniture in her bedroom so her keyboard and sewing furniture fit in and I can walk in there to put stuff away. The kitchen is not fully functional yet but she should be able to heat something up to eat and have some dishes to put it on now at least. I felt sorry for Husby hauling stuff in through the wind, snow, rain, and sleet. What a nasty day. But it's done now and anything else we need to do should be doable under a cozy roof.

When I called to get Mom signed up for Dish network, she discovered her debit card is missing. This was after I just gotten the lecture about how she didn't need to be organized because her memory is good enough that she can remember where things are without having to put things away, all because I came across a random light bulb and she told me to put it in the desk drawer, which I disagreed with. Don't even get me started on how untrue that is about her memory. This is the woman who will call me up and ask where something is in her house that I never knew she owned. How would I know? She has no idea where her card is or when she had it last. We had her call and cancel it. For a while she couldn't find her credit card either, understandable since she always leaves it laying around and doesn't carry it, and of course with the move stuff is in chaos. That eventually showed up, stuck in the business envelope it came in, stuck to the letter it came on, with her password and account info written on the bottom of the letter, and the sticker still on it saying it wasn't activated yet even though it was. The old, expired one was in the same envelope in exactly the same condition. Somebody please tell me what that's about, saving expired credit cards, medical and dental cards, drivers licenses, and other worthless junk so it increases the chances that info will fall into the wrong hands and so she has to waste other peoples' time while they either have to sort through the mess for the right card, or stand in line behind her while someone searches for the right card. I sure don't get it. But at least I was able to set up her Dish work order after having to hang up with the rep because Mom couldn't find her card while I was on the phone. :sigh: Her bank said no scary activity had happened on that card so that's a good thing.

Mom kept hinting we should clean her apartment. Sorry, Mom, we've been working our asses off to the point of exhaustion and pain, we're still not done, and there's no way we're cleaning that apartment. She finally gave in and hired a friend of hers from the apartment building. It ticked us off because she can afford to pay someone and it won't even cost that much because it's a small place that isn't that dirty. Why should we have to do that on top of everything else we're taking vacation time to do? We don't mind helping her with the new place but enough is enough.

I think we've been spending too much time together the past few days. LOL. I've been doing my best to bite my tongue about all the disorganization and the junk we've moved instead of tossing, but of course I'm not perfect. She's 86 and isn't going to change now, so I need to just shut my face and keep my thoughts to myself. She has all her mental faculties so if she does stupid stuff, she can deal with the consequences.

We were hoping to be done today but we're wearing down so not working as fast as before, plus the weather has slowed things down. So we'll be back over there tomorrow. I hope we can get most of the stuff organized and put away. It'll be Tuesday already and our own projects that we were going to get done while Husby is on vacation have completely slipped off our radar and we have to get back to that stuff. We could have the dirt guy out here as soon as road restrictions come off toward the end of the month, and we don't have the gutters on the garage yet to help keep the new driveway from washing away. And we still haven't had a chance to play with our HydroBikes or even get the dock put back together yet.

The weather geek from Duluth is on the TV pointing at the webcam in town here and talking about how we're 35 degrees below average for temps today. No wonder it's been snowing all day. It's only stinkin' 34 degrees here! It's supposed to be warming up the rest of the week though, I guess.

It's a huge relief to have all Mom's stuff moved, even if it's not all put away yet.

Pinetree ... If you remember ... we're self employed and the business property was financed thru Bank of Hell. We reaffirmed it and it was the ONLY thing we got to keep. So we made the regular payments on it for 7 months after we filed. THEN one day we get a call from the attorney and he asked if we had made the last 3 payments on it. I said yes and he asked if we had proof. So I faxed bank statements where it showed they cashed the checks ( which were made at the bank ) and copies of the receipts from making them etc. Bank of Hell had told the Trustee we weren't making the payments. Long story there short... she ripped them. They said Well... they made the payments but we put it into a hold tank. She said you can't do that. Attorney said Lets roll the property loan into the bankruptcy and raise the pay back and make the payment thru the Trustee. So we did. Last BK payment to the Trustee was last of April. She hasn't dispersed the last payment yet. We can't make another payment until she does and next payment is due the 28th and today is 18th. According to the bankruptcy dept at Bof Hell payment has to be made over the phone or mailed. Can't make the payment at the local anymore where we can get a receipt. Bank of Hell also said we wouldn't get a receipt for payment from phone nor mailing.

So all they have to do is not post the payment and they can call the loan in. The property is worth more than what is owed. But to much for us to try to pay off. They have already a couple months ago called in an appraiser to appraise the property. Which when hubs told the guy on the phone that it was in bankruptcy and what they'd done they/he said they wanted no part of it. Haven't heard anything else about that but that's coming. Love how they waited a couple of months before the BK is over to appraise it when they've had 15 years to do it. I think they're trying to find out what's it's worth compared to what we owe and how they'd make out better.

No payment receipt? All they have to do is not cash it / not post it and say we defaulted. Can't wire it. Can't make at the local. If mail it and make them sign... crap... I forgot what that does. Anyway they're going to pull something. Loan isn't done until late late 2018.

The house is also thru them and they haven't even foreclosed on it. Although they sold the loan. But still.. haven't foreclosed. The house that was his mom's that he got when she died and he bought sold January of this year. So we'll have that to contend with come tax time next year I'm sure. I don't know how 2 houses will be handled. Attorneys woman says to hubs .. you filed bankruptcy .. you have the tax person take care of filing the bankruptcy with the 1099C if you get one. NOT what she told me. What she told me was we may be liable for the difference in income tax between what it sold for and what was owed. On 2.. count them TWO houses. Wasn't what the attorney told us in the beginning either. He said we wouldn't.

I'm sure I could think of more if I tried. Right now... at THIS time is Bank of Hell and the business property. There's no way anyone is going to tell me they aren't trying to pull shi)_( ... and won't try by 2018.

Niko a very big hug from me. I am so sorry the bloody bank is giving you trouble again. I wish I could help you in a way, but sadly I am so far away.

Oheoh I am so glad everything turned out more or less ok.

I don't know what I am going to do today yet. Ah well this is what I have to do (and hate to do):
Email the owner of the house that I d like to come over with another elektrician (this is number 3) and hope he accepts it. He has been very kind in accepting this, but I ll probably give them the favour of giving them some more time to move without costs.
Contact the dentist to change the appointment.

Niko, what a mess you've been going through with BOA. I am so sorry.

oheoh's momma, how scary about your little one! Glad everything is going now ok.

fw, I understand about you and DH and financial talks! My DH and I have, after almost 30 years, managed to get in sync with money matters.

Ayanka, hope it works out with the electrician.

SD, you and your DH have been wonderful to your mom, but I agree---if she can afford it, let HER make arrangements for cleaning. You've already gone above and beyond.

pinetree, my DH is also on statins and he said some of them can indeed cause pain. Praying the dr. can switch your meds. Let us know.

I hope I didn't leave out anyone.

My list was DONE yesterday. So for Tuesday:

1) Go to retired teachers' luncheon
2) Laundry: my clothes
3) Package some leftovers for the freezer
4) Help DH with home repairs, as necessary

Have a good day, everyone.

Well, I'm still alive...not doing well, but alive! The virus I had was really hard to get rid of, but I think I'm over it. And then I woke up this morning screaming in pain...the gout is back. I would really like to return this body for a full refund!

No possible list for the next few days, I can't walk. But I'm alive...and hopefully tomorrow will be better!

Have a great day, Everyone!

Jen
