Monday Rambles

Actual conversation we had the other day:

Me:  I miss the days when I could poop in the mornings.

Keith:  I miss the days when we didn't have to talk about your poop all the time.

I know I said that this was not going to become a regular topic here, but that was too funny not to mention.

I did have a bad swing the other way (if you know what I mean) a few nights ago.  I was up for quite a while and it was rough.  A lot rougher than anything I've ever been through.  It felt like someone was yanking my innards out with a fork!  (Ewww!) I thought I was going to pass out.  Seriously.  I don't know for sure that it was treatment related, since it hasn't happened again.  I am so glad for that.  An extended run like that is  not something I want to go through.  It left me wiped out the next day!

Most of the small furniture is out of my closing booth and moved over to the other store.  All of my books (except for the religious ones) have been moved.  I do have a few large furniture pieces left and a couple of end tables, chairs and desks.  Most of them have been way marked down, as I don't plan on taking them with me.  If I can't sell them, there's a clean up guy who has made arrangements to take care of anything that gets left.  He's a big time vendor, so I know what he's going to do.  I'll be leaving him a few "presents."

If I have to go that route, it will be karmic payback for the benefits I've reaped from other vendors as they've been moving.  I've gotten several gifts of mirrors, dish sets, chairs, books, etc over the last few weeks.  Many of them I've been turning around and flipping quickly at bargain prices, adding to my bottom line for the last month.  I have just about made my sales goal for the month, so I'm looking to go way over it.  Not having any rent come out in the last month will sure help this be a big check.

I still have tons of smalls to wrap, box, and move.  I love my smalls, but I am so dreading this.  I am up to my neck in empty boxes, totes, and tubs at the house and at the store, but I know it's still not nearly enough.

I'm taking a load of smalls to the new store this afternoon, after I get done with my scan.  I'm in my pre-scan fast period, counting the minutes until I go in.  In other words, I AM STARVING!!!!  Oh well.  The price we pay for scientific inquiry.

I'll get the results tomorrow, along with treatment options, if any are needed. Of course, I'll be updating here as soon as I know anything.

Not too much else in the way of happenings here right now.  Sorry about that.

Good luck with the scans. The techs always ask if you are comfortable. Yes, as a starving, sick person I am as comfortable as possible. Moving is such a pain when smalls are involved. I hope you will not have to re-ticket them.

So much work to close out that space but you seem to be getting it done. Hang in there! Fingers crossed and prayers said for good results from the scan. Just so you don't feel alone, my Mom and I talk about 'poop' issues all the time...

Good luck with the scan, Eddie. Please pace yourself with this move. You need your strength to get well...
