On the Eve of Canadian Thanksgiving weekend we have much to be blessed for. The love & support of friends and family, the incredible journey of memories that we have shared, Travis in recovery out of hospital, and today we have found a new place to live!
Strange to go from owning back to renting, but it will be hassle free and easy. It is completely wheelchair accessible and we will no longer have to trek up 3 flights of stairs! We have signed the lease for a one bedroom + den (den being big enough to serve as a guest bedroom so please come & visit). On the 8th floor corner unit in Kanata. It is bright and open planned with a balcony & washer/dryer. (Don it is just around the corner from Aperitivo - the shared plate dinner that we went to Canada Day weekend!)
As it is still under construction our move in date is March 1st with the possibility of moving in sooner. The good news is that it will be brand new & clean. Also, we have the option to move into a 2 bedroom with stand up shower in the future should that become necessary.
It warms my heart how many of you have shared that you read my blog. To be completely honest, sometimes it's hard to hear how wonderful our spirit is because I try to be positive when writing, but I also want to be real and don't always feel so brave. Many times I get really scared and am truly afraid of how my body is rapidly declining. I can no longer walk up stairs without a bannister, when I squat down I can't get up without using my arms, I can no longer cut my right hand nails and even handwriting isn't easy anymore.
That being said, I know that I am not alone and the constant words of support, love & prayers from friends & family help to lift me when I'm feeling down.
Sadly I had to cancel my Toronto trip this weekend and our planned Italy trip has been delayed, but we are taking things day by day and are still looking forward to travelling to Italy. Although the weather may be colder, we won't have to worry about the crowds! Special thank you to Mike & Wendy for helping us to make our Italy trip even more special xoxo.
My apologies as I have many invitations to meet up with people and I will take you all up on them, things just feel so busy! Now that Travis is in recovery we need to sell our condo, plan our vacation to Italy, clean out & downsize our condo, both of us now have Doctors visits, and Travis is back to work next week. My brother Keith is coming to stay with us next week and we are looking forward to seeing him.
Again my heart is full of thanks as my loving husband is home and we have found a place to move into that we are excited about.
