I am glad you are making such progress thinning out all you might pack to take with you to CO.  I'll be doing that here too but we've got to get things moving on the project in CO.  We have made great progress with the power company to move a power line (for the property to the south of us) as it spans across our property right where we want to put the new house.

Our other big issue is the existing house on the property.  DH read up in the nearly 500 page .PDF on the rules the County has about ADUs (Additional Dwelling Units).  We thought we were compliant with the rules as DH read.  Unfortunately, DH then found an additional statement about the ruling and it read as if our plan does not comply and we'd have to tear down the existing house.  So we are headed into a Zoom mtg with someone from the County this Thursday to get clarification as to what they will allow and accept.  DH doesn't want to parcel it off and have two sets of power lines, water lines, bills etc.  We are praying is goes well and the best outcome all around.  We'd hate to lose the resource of the separate house for family/friends to be able to use and to have it for retreats and even available for missionaries who return to the US on furlough and may need a home for a time before they go back to wherever they are serving.  We'd really like to be able to use it for that.

I understand about wanting to take advantage of the market to sell (and then to buy) to your most advantage.




Good luck on the zoom meeting!  I think I would rather have two sets of  utilities rather than having to tear down the house  An extra house would be a nice resource to have.  Hope it works out for you!

There are some strict rules in Colorado. We live in Boulder County and they really restrict building. The county has purchased a ton of property to block development on those parcels. I do hope that you are able to sort out your situation to an outcome that meets your needs.

I am looking forward to visiting you at your new Colorado place sometime in the near future.

Judy, push comes to shove, it would be better to have the 2 parcels & sets of bills than need to tear down a perfectly good house.

DH then found an additional statement about the ruling and it read as if our plan does not comply and we'd have to tear down the existing house.

oh dear!  Let's hope that doesn't happen.  Sending good vibes your way.

I wonder if she can even tell if the surgery helped. 

I guess I never reported back that my surgery was a complete success.  I have no pain.  The difficulty is with reactions to the medicine I was on.  I'm getting better, baby steps, baby steps.


Carolyn that is answered prayer that the surgery worked!!!! God is good. I do hope that you can figure out the meds very soon and then get on with the healing, one day at a time. I hope that just the lack of the pain makes it all so much better.

That won't be exactly like dining on a cruise ship ... meals will not be fine dining despite being planned by a chef.

My DF moved into an upscale senior citizen place with advertised chef-planned meals but we learned that those meals were required to follow federal guidelines regarding sodium, fat and sugar content and portion sizes with no salt shakers on the table etc. etc. etc. 

He would invite me to dine as a guest at his place once or twice a month when my DH was out of town and I learned to have some toast or a cookie before I went to his place to dull my appetite before I joined him for dinner.

He never turned down a chance to have a meal at my house.
