The floors went in before we moved in. The kitchen is next. Somewhere in this process, we will need to actually furnish the house and finish the basement. Until then, we will continue looking for deer and the rumored fox, turkey and owl.

Yes, I did move back to Springfield, Mo. More on that in my next blog.
Until then, I would be remiss if I didn’t thank my many healthcare workers who toiled to make me better. Seriously, a myriad of them. Thanks.

I was actually thinking how much more simple it would be to find a home in Springfield. Then Chris received a note from his former boss. He actually wanted my husband to go back to work for him. When I flashed a smile at Chris, he looked puzzled. After I told him about my thought process, he understood.
Above almost everything, it seems that it is important for me to be nearer to people who knew me before I had a stroke. Plus, it’s much closer in proximity to my parents and other family.
Also, the house on which we made an offer has....wait for it...an elevator. We weren’t even looking for that feature, but hey. We’ll take it. Again, close to Chris’ work.
I feel I should have mentioned this before, but I am very satisfied with my current caregiver. So much so, we asked her to move with us, and she said no. She did, however, offer to temporarily care for me while we look for a permanent solution. She even offered to train her replacement, but she won’t need to. If things go according to plans, one of my longtime caregivers is planning a move to Springfield.

And furthermore (who says furthermore except in written communications?), Kelsey brought her baby and her mom over. I take partial credit for the little girl, by the way. Not genetically, but she did incubate right beside me. The baby was cute and so little. I was honored by her presence alone, but her mom brought an NOPW-themed quilt for me. Kelsey requested it, but her mom made it. Also, if you don't know what NOPW is, go here.
