Personal Update, November 17, 2014
Since I last posted, I've been taking it pretty easy, working until I'm tired and then stopping to rest. Although my surgery date had been set for December 1, it has now been postponed until December 5, because it looks like my cardiac clearance won't come through quickly enough. This is because of my little visit to the ER last week and the late date for my treadmill stress test. If I flunk it, there wouldn't be time to work out the complications while so many of the affected medical offices are closed for Thanksgiving. Unfortunately, I still have to be at the hospital, which is half an hour away, at 5 AM.
Meanwhile, I have a lot to get done here before the big day. That messy desk you see in the photo is one important project. I will have to do all my bookkeeping, etc, in this office after the surgery, since I won't be able to get to my home office. The room I use for an office here holds everything office related that was my mom's and my in-laws'. As I've been sorting throught the estates, everything that would be used in an office was put into this room. Then when the house was burglarized last year, the buglars threw the contents of the organized boxes all over the floor and emptied all the desk drawers, and then it was all I could do to just get everything off the floor.
Now I've got to get all that stuff on and in the desk organized or thrown away or otherwise disposed of. I need my reference books in the bookcase I've been sorting through, so I can continue to check facts when writing. I want to keep the things in this desk that I actaully will need to use, and I will need the surface clear to write on. The desk itself is an antique that my dad received from my Cousin Edna when she moved into an assisted living residence before she died.
There are other things in this room I will need to deal with as well. So if you wonder why you don't see me writing much here, this is one reason why. I do pop in to read your posts and comment, but posts probably will be far between.
