DH took it easy yesterday. Neighbor boy did bring 2 loads of pine cones in his little red wagon. He's so cute. A couple years ago he was so afraid of dogs and didn't say a word. Now he loves dogs and talks up a storm, haha. He started school this past week. I can't remember if it's pre-k or kindergarten he's in now.
We've been watching to see if the listing for one of the lots changes to pending, after that couple spent that hour or so looking at it, but nothing yet. Gosh houses are being listed for insane amounts around here. Stuff that 5 years ago, when we were looking, was half what they are asking now. We are very glad we got over here when we did. We couldn't have afforded what the prices are now. Even our little house in town, we bought for $161,000. Zillow now has it at $352,000. Housing double in the last 5 years, but my salary sure hasn't!
From being at the hospital we also saw that the lot next to our old house, on the corner, got sold and someone is starting to build. Looks like right now they are building a small shop in the back and living in an rv. They are all just very small 9000 sf lots. Someone told dh that the people who built a house on the other side of that awful renter we had also now bought the 4 lots on the other side of the street and plan to build homes to sell. It's going to get crowded there, now, LOL.
DH is still feeling really tired and can't figure out why he keeps getting sweats and chills during the nights. We mentioned it to the provider on Friday, too. Again (just like the specialist) no suggestion as to what could be the cause. He was saying last night he's so tired feeling. I joked "welcome to my life with no caffeine" . He says is this what it's like? I said pretty much.
I got the guest bedroom bedding washed yesterday. Got my grocery list started, for picking up when I'm in the city on Wednesday afternoon. I don't feel like I really did anything yesterday, but I kept busy, LOL. I did text with my half sister awhile in the afternoon. Her 2 daughters and her son in law have Covid. They all went to an outdoor wedding last weekend. Sis said she only went to the ceremony and then took her grandson home to spend the night with her. She also briefly saw her 2 daughters earlier in the week. So far sis doesn't have any symptoms. My Facebook feed seems to be filled with people having weddings and showers this summer.
We are having mild nice weather now. It was actually pleasant to sit on the front patio last evening for a bit. We took a little walk partway down our street (dr told dh to walk a bit) and some car drove by on the main road super slow and the lady practically had her head hanging out the window looking back at our house, LOL. People do that all the time. The speed limit is 60 on that road and they either practically come to a stop or drive by super slow.
DH will most likely mow the lawn today. It's been since Tuesday and ready to be mowed again. I need to get my flowers and shrubs that the deer like sprayed with repellent. I just had some more delivered and also use the Miracle Gro I bought for the rhododendrons. I should probably get the chicken coop cleaned out, too.
I just remembered I'm also taking the Tuesday after Labor Day off, so it will be a nice long weekend next weekend. I should probably have my mom out here for a couple days.....but I'm so dang tired. I guess I have a week to decide. Also, with dh so so tired, I just think having her here might be too much right now. She's exhausting to spend a lot of time with. He's really good about chatting with her and listening to her ask the same thing over and over, but right now I'm sure that's the last thing he feels like doing.
Still no hospital claims showing up on dh's insurance yet. His new insurance starts on the 1st, so that will be better going forward, even though so much more money in premiums each month. Like I keep telling myself, I was able to save $24k the past 4 years, when he didn't need any medical care, rather than putting that all to premiums for care he didn't need. Now, we're in the phase of his life he's going to need to use it, so time for the better insurance.
