Marjanen Household News

News from our house:

Last weekend we had an offer on our house that we were working at counteroffering. Monday evening we had a family look at our house and Tuesday they made an offer. We accepted it on Tuesday and are looking forward to closing on November 19th if all goes according to plan. The family has 2 girls who go to school with our girls .. will be a nice addition to the cul-de-sac and hopefully continue to keep it a "quiet" place to be. Inspection is scheduled for Wednesday .. will see what they have to say. Am hopeful that it won't be too lengthy a list as we paid for an inspection ourselves before we listed the house originally. I think this means that we are down to 3 weeks and 2 days to pack our house and have a place to live up north. We are excited!!!

Yesterday I slowed down the packing process just a little bit. :) I went in Friday morning and had a laproscopic gall bladder removal. Came home today (Saturday) at noon .. slept part of the afternoon .. and have been listening to a good book on tape and working on Anna's quilt all evening. Now I think it is time for some sleep. Plan to chill out and relax until after the inspection is completed on Wednesday. As long as that goes well and they don't have any major problems with our hosue ... Alyx & Brock can help me start packing.

That's it from here for now. Just wanted to update those of you who read this blog and haven't heard the house news.

Have a great day all!

congratulations on selling the house! hope the process goes smoothly.

your casual mention of surgery reminds me of hearing of the women back in the day that would have a baby in the morning and be back in the potato field by late afternoon. take care of yourself. and happy packing. -e.

Not only do I get forgetful in my
old age, I get repetitious!

I was just in too much of a hurry
so clicked it twice! dk

Glad to hear recovery is going well. The final boxes will get packed even faster if you allow yourself recovery time. Don't rush it :)

Michelle will probably be the next Kuoppala having her gallbladder pulled. Argh. Any other alphabet soupers struggling with theirs?

Well, I'm not sure if it's the gall bladder....

I must say that I miraculously have no back pain anymore. I have walked around work many days holding a fist in the right side of my back. It's gone!!! I talked to my manager today (with my letter of resignation) and she started asking me if I had clearance from the dr. to be back at work. I said "clearance .. I need that?" We all decided that I probably didn't. Was sort of hoping all day that the surgeon wouldn't show up to see a patient, tho. 3 Ibuprofen all day long and that is honest. Didn't need anymore that that. Ran my tush off and it felt good! Like everyone kept telling me ... have Michelle go and get it done. Just march into the Dr office and tell them she wants pics of her belly .. then call the wonderful surgeon. It's less than a week, my steri strips still haven't fall off, I can certainly feel the incision sites ... but I feel great!

I am not going to overdo anything. I promise that. ;)
