It is with mixed feelings that Gene and I are selling, along with all the hard work that has gone into it, from choosing a floor plan, to building on a vacant lot, then forwarding on to create a home.

(August, 2016 our house for SALE!)
You can imagine the reasoning that has gone into the decision to sell, if you have been following this blog for a while. It is difficult to say that the return of cancer is nudging us along, because that ugly disease is not going to make me a victim. I do so want to be the Girl on the Right. SHE would not be a victim.
My brother John and SIL Char were here this week and John was a trooper, helping to fix the garden gate, transplanting iris into a big pot, trucking dead foliage into the pit, and helping to move a 75 year old workbench and heavy oak table onto the back of a friend's pickup bed. The workbench and table have already found a new home thanks to Marianne, Judy and Bill.
We also had some recreational time. SIL tickled heads for Julie and me while Uncle John photographed. We had some good days together.
Today starts day 9 of 21 days for the first cycle of the Ibrance chemo drug at 125 mg/day with expected side effects (SE) of fatigue and woozy-ness. Not too bad, and SE should diminish as time goes by.
Pictures tomorrow of a Girls on the Right Luncheon with friends and salads and summer drinks on the patio.
