This is one AMAZING dog……it’s a shame, he’s no longer with us.

I’m feeling a bit overwhelmed yet…we’re moving forward…. Today, a massive packing day, with help coming to pack, with Donna.
Of course I still have quite a bit of lab work to accomplish but this coming week should spell the end of lab production.
It’s truly amazing at all the list of things to take care of. Spending $$ for this, for that, trying to get all things paid that need to be and at the same time, covering all moving expenses. My notes are more organized now than before, actually getting to check things off the list.
Last evening, we met with ADT to have an alarm system installed next week. We would have liked to have utilized 2 cameras , have them installed too but the cost was outrageous. ADT wanted 1699.00 for 2 cameras and a DVR ! Not today, perhaps later…You have to draw a spending line somewhere. Anyone that visits my home here , near the lake, after we are in texas, will be in for an arresting surprise.
so moving forward today…
I will reserve the moving truck, equipment and more supplies. Two men to help load were tentatively hired for the 29th but If I can find others cheaper, I will. This moving company wants for 2 men, $95 per hour , just to load. Anyone in my area, that knows 2 men that need $$$. I’m willing to pay well but not $95 per hour,if I can help it. $ 40 per hour, for 2 men, is very good pay and I suspect the loading can be accomplished in 4-6 hrs.
The rest is finishing paying utilities, living expenses and informing e-transactions of future address and hold on any eft transactions , until bank accounts can be set up. So, off to the shower, then to work in the lab for the day.
from today, 2 weeks and 2 days until we become Texans….
Daily events, these days are never dull. Yesterday began the end of my business with the leaving of employment from Ms Patterson. I hated to see her go but the book of life has more pages, to be turned. I wish her the best!
Then Sis ask me, do I know if the refrigerator in the new home is staying or am I having to purchase a new one? So, I contact the realtor via email. He starts asking questions to the home owner. We come to find out that not only is the frig staying but there are many items, the owner has in the home, are for sale.
So, through the realtor in Texas, sis contacts him and sets up an afternoon viewing of the inside of the home and the items for sale. Around 4:30pm est. Sis calls me from the home on her cell and tells me. She has a;ready walked through the home, talking with the owner with the owner stating. These items are for sale.
( A very nice ,olive green couch and loveseat, a very nice large persian? rug on the den floor, a very nice outside table and 6 chairs, a new microwave in the kitchen)
Sis, was able to purchase all of this for 250.00. WOW, what a buy! Way to go Sis ! What a great owner not wanting to move many items, selling these for such a buy!
Also, come to find out, the owner is leaving a new frig , a washer and dryer (we have a complete Maytag W/D/, that we may use or sell now) and lawn equipment.
What a great shopping , fact finding , spree that was. Sis was pumped…
and the twist...it appears a former employee of my closing corporation and ex-step-mother that is really evil has been stalking my current address (according to my close neoghbor). I witnessed the stalking yesterday , late afternnon. This person is evil, vendictive and there’s no telling what she is up to. So, I’m going to inform the Sherriff’s Dept., my insurance company and it now appears I’m going to have to consult ADT about their “pulse” system to be installed. I would not put it past her, to vandalize my current residence or torch it after we move. This home is insured, so come what may but if she tries anything, I hope to get it on film and catch her for the police to deal with.
Let her try…..smile your on camera..
Yesterday was a great day…Sis called me and told me, we got the house in Arlington,Tx. …. YEAH !!!!
Now, the plan is put into action. To notify clients that we are closing but where that door closes, another is opening. I hope I can convince some of them or all to send their cases to Tx. The packing, planning of moving begins…..
So..the move is on
