Now I have PTSD, nebi.  Thanks a lot.

Shall I save some fair food?  Deep fried oreo or cheesecake on a stick?

We are packed and ready to go in ten minutes, but it is a three hourish drive.

Hey, I'm walking around my air cast today without crutches. I still need it for stairs and uneven surfaces, but again, progress.

Dh had a going up stair crutch and a coming down stair crutch.  Two different lengths.

Good Morning Deb and Neb,

We are going to the fair today!   Last time since we are moving out soon.

*dreams of fried food and milkshakes*

*waves*

Pretty much cleaned out cabin/she shed.  One trip to the dump, and one to the thrift store.

and.........I am baking meat loaf for dinner.  Never mind that we had already packed the bread crumbs and mixing bowl, and loaf baking pan.  I just winged it with some tin foil pan.

Every person needs a private space, well maybe not men, but I need one.  I am going to take over the bunk room in Myrtle Beach for my space.  I will have my piano and jig saw puzzles there and I will be happy.. :/ 

Tomorrow we are leaving for a mini break.. Time for the Dutchess County Fair.  It has been  a tradition, and this will be the last time.  What we enjoy most is that there is a beer garden with a full service bar.  

and fair food.

lots of fair food.

*nods off in lazy boy*

We are off to another busy day packing..

I promised I would go out to my She Shed and collect stuff for the dump.  Mine is not quite so elegant, but I will miss it.

Be safe everyone,

'Later.

Good morning!

Any good tricks for shoulder tendonitis? It really bugs me when I get up in the morning. (Like I'm unconsciously sleeping on it)

It sounds really silly, but for a long time I used a hugger pillow to avoid problems with my sleeping position.  I used to wake up with a dead arm, like from the shoulder all the way down..

Maybe it would help with your shoulder.  ((nebi))

Yesterday we went to an abstract office to sign papers for our house sale.  Thank goodness our lawyer's office was next door because some stuff was screwed up.

So we have completed our part of the closing, the only thing left is physically moving out.

Morning Deb,

No tennis today, just more house packing.  Dh swears this will be our last trip to the dump.

It's not stress I'm worried about. I know he won't let me stress about something that he is handling. Even if it means only feeding me certain details so I don't worry about the small stuff. (does he know me or what?!)

 

I worry once he gets here that he will get sick of me. I know that's my **** inner voice talking....the one that is convinced I don't deserve happiness. So I'm trying to let it go. 

I thought I was going to die before I turned 25, mostly because I could not imagine having a good life.. Weird!

But that didn't happen, and you certainly do deserve happiness.  One day at a time.

((feisty))

Tennis at 8, signing stuff at 11:30, dentist at 2:30.  Not a normal day for me, and I will be glad to be home.

We more or less finished packing the kitchen.  I put little ribbons on all the cabinets that are empty and washed out.  

I just hope whatever the dentist does is minimal.. I should have cancelled this appointment. :(

Be safe everyone,

'later.

Any apocalypse without zombies seems kinda ho hum.  I just finished a novel about a zombie apocalypse where a cure was invented.  All the zombies who had the cure could remember what they did while they were sick and this caused many to commit suicide.

Then many of the people who were immune realized that they had been killing people who could have been cured, and restored to a normal life.

IRL, my place in Pa would have been sustainable.  Land to plant, a pond for fish, plenty of firewood.  I actually thought about looking up the Amish neighbors and working for them, figuring that they were already off the grid experts. 

One thing I have considered purchasing is a solar powered charger for my kindle e reader.  At least I would have books.  I bet I could get a slight larger one for DH's Bose speaker, then we would have books and music. 

This whole concept may be something to consider when looking for another house..

Original Post by oldguysrule:

The author shouldn't have used the word "sequence" in his original setup. Sequence has a specific meaning in mathematics. In a "sequence" the next number is uniquely determined by whatever rule is being followed. The phrase "next number is larger than the previous one" doesn't qualify as a rule in this context.

 

If any "rule" counted as being a legitimate rule, the simplest rule of all would be something like "any real number next" or "whatever number occurs to you is next." This whole discussion is totally bogus, IMO.

I was really surprised to read that David Leonhardt had a Bs in Applied Mathematics.    It would seem that he could have been a bit more precise when he wrote that article and came up with this puzzle.

Which I totally failed because I was looking for a sequence, not a general rule. 

*pouts*

I went through every file in my desk... so much stuff went right into the trash.  Desk is empty, files are stored, more or less. The metal filing cabinet I bought at the thrift shop is going to the auction, it just isn't worth packing and storing.  :/

It is really funny being this busy.  Normally things here at the hermitage are tearfully slow.

We are still waiting to hear about details on the closing.. signing papers or an actual meeting, well it would be nice to have something settled.

We might need to go buy more boxes.

Morning everyone,

Thursday is a no tennis day so I have all day to be productive. *snuggles into lazyboy*  Or not.

*Throws invisibility cloak over boxes*

Thanks you! 

Dh took down all our pictures and decorations, the place looks strange and sad in a way.

We did box up a bunch of them.  The last area to tackle is the kitchen. *sighs*

Can't put this off much longer...

Be safe peeps.

'later.

Still packing and sorting here... My sister came and left with a carful of stuff.  She rescued a few things that had belonged to our mother, so that was nice.

It has been something of a rollercoaster, but I think the hardest part is over.

*sighs, looking at empty dining room hutch* 

The best thing is that, near as I can figure, I only have to cut the grass 2 more times!!

Have you found any prospects for the new place?

We are not is a rush since our house in Myrtle Beach is all set and ready.. We may expand looking north to Gatlinburg, or south to oceanfront on St. Simons Island.  Dh may now be leaning towards a condo or townhouse just to make life easier.  Another consideration is lakefront somewhere, then we might get a small boat for fishing.

The funny thing is, as an adult, I have lived near water my whole life... my first apartment, my first house, this house and Myrtle Beach. 

Dh just wants to take 6 months off and relax..
