Quick Update

I am in the pre-packing phase.  In other words, I am searching for things I can donate or trash.  As of today, I have no idea where I am moving.  My daughter has moved to Kingwood which is one of those planned communities on the outskirts of Houston.  As the name implies, the roads and subdivisions are actually cut into a forest area.  

The apartment I had looked at with the ducks and deer is about 15 minutes from her house and she is another 15 or 20 minutes from the son's house.  There is an apartment complex in her area that I am going to look at.  The problem is knowing what rate to pay now that won't have me moving again next year for being priced out.  Rent is so high here because of the big companies that have moved here.  

Btw, I dog sat for the son while he was on vacation and made the 2+ hour round trip to his house for several days.  One day I missed a turn and went a completely different direction home.  On that route, I passed by the Amazon Warehouse they built here.  I may have been on the wrong side of the road but there were very few cars or Amazon trucks there.  If the trucks were out on delivery, wouldn't there be driver's personal cars there?  Interesting.  

My Kroger has started making the Tillamook Pimento Cheese I like again, and I am so excited.  

I had my doctor visit last week.  I scored a 7.1 on my A1C.  This is excellent for me.  Go Insulin Pump. 

The little girls visited me only once this summer.  It is so sad that they are growing up and making a life with friends and combined families.  I mean it is good for them, lonesome for Nana.  

So, my moving plans are spread out like a tree branch.  There is still the affordable apartment in the works.  There is the ducks and deer senior apartment in the woods I put a down payment on.  There is the new apartments in the Forest near my daughter that I have to go see when it is not raining.  Maybe tomorrow.  And, of course, there is the bedroom at my daughters if what I want is not available. 

I'm glad my numbers are good because this little bit of decluttering and carrying to my trunk or the garbage bin is wearing me out.  Hahaha.  

I've been binging the tv series Alone.  The last year (8) is on Prime or Netflix but the older seasons are on the Discovery+ channel.  I'm really digging it.  Like Survivor for Grownups but your alone instead of a team.  

More later ...
