AUG.  5, ’15 CHIT & CHAT & CHATTER & CATCH UP TIME!!!

THANKS EVERYONE FOR THE PRAYERS— YES — GARY & I MADE IT TO KANSAS & BACK TO BRANSON THIS AFTERNOON—–

WE WENT BACK TO KANSAS FOR THE  HOME INSPECTIONS OF THE NEW HOME WE ARE BUYING—- AND WHILE WE WERE GOING — GARY DECIDED WE NEEDED TO TAKE A U-HAUL TRUCK LOAD BACK & ALSO A U-HAUL TRAILER FULL BACK TO A STORAGE UNIT IN KANSAS– & HAVE THAT MUCH MOVED AS WE WENT!!!

THIS MEANT GARY HAD TO LOAD THE TRUCK & TRAILER– BEFORE WE LEFT– & I WOULD BE DRIVING THE RV BY MY SELF– FOLLOWING HIM—-

SINCE MY MCS HAS GOTTEN WORSE OVER THE YEARS—- IN THE PAST SEVEN OR EIGHT YEARS I HAVE NOT DRIVEN MUCH AT ALL— AS ALL OF YOU WITH MCS WELL KNOW— IF YOU DRIVE INTO TOXIC CHEMICALS– YOU CAN HAVE BRAIN FOG TO THE POINT OF NOT KNOWING WHERE YOU ARE GOING– & MORE— AND CAN BECOME VERY VERY VERY ILL FROM EXPOSURES ALSO!!! SO TO SAY –I WAS NERVOUS ABOUT DRIVING OVER 350 PLUS MILES– FOLLOWING GARY IN A U-HAUL & PULLING  A TRAILER– WOULD BE AN UNDERSTATEMENT!!!!!  🙂

PRAISE GOD ALL WENT WELL—– WE GOT TO KANSAS FINE– & GARY UNLOADED THE TRUCK & TRAILER IN THE STORAGE UNIT— WE HAD THE HOME INSPECTIONS OF THE HOME WE ARE BUYING– THE TERMITE INSPECTION REVEALED– NO TERMITES– NO SIGN OF TERMITES– OR ANY SIGN OF EVER BEING ANY TERMITES!!!!  YEA!!!!!

THE WHOLE HOUSE INSPECTION WAS DONE BY PEOPLE WE KNOW & TRUST– & IT WAS A VERY SUCCESSFUL INSPECTION– & WE FOUND A FEW PROBLEM AREAS– THAT NEED ADDRESSED– BUT FEEL VERY VERY BLESSED TO HAVE THE INSPECTIONS DONE BY PEOPLE WE TRUST– & RESPECT& NOW KNOW THE PROBLEM AREAS WE NEED TO TAKE CARE OF!!!!!  ALSO WE WORKED OUT A PLAN TO HAVE A NEW METAL ROOF PUT ON THE HOME WITH IN 45 DAYS!!!!

WITH MCS— OF COARSE NO TOXIC SHINGLES FOR A ROOF— SO WE OF COARSE HAVE TO GO WITH A METAL ROOF!!!!  WE WILL BE VERY GLAD WHEN THAT IS TAKE CARE OF!!!  WE ALSO WILL NEED THE FURNACE & AC CHECKED & WHAT EVER IS NEEDED TO DO THERE!!!   AND OTHER THINGS WE WILL NEED TO CHECK ON– THAT GARY CAN DO THE WORK—- ETC!!!

WE MET THE FAMILY WE ARE BUYING THE HOME FROM– & THEIR THREE SMALL CHILDREN– & THEY ARE DELIGHTFUL!!!!

WE ALSO HAD OTHERS COME & DROP BY & WELCOME US TO THE AREA–& WE ARE NOT EVEN MOVED THERE YET!!!  🙂  WE FEEL VERY BLESSED!!!

WE CLOSE ON THE SALE OF THE PROPERTIES THE END OF THE MONTH– SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO MUCH TO DO YET!!!!!!!

BUT WE ARE WORKING ON IT SMALL STEPS– & IT WILL BE DONE!!!! TRYING TO NOT BE OVERWHELMED!!!!!!

AFTER GOING TO THE HOME AGAIN– FOR THE INSPECTIONS– WE LOVE IT EVEN MORE!!!!!!!  WE ARE READY TO BE MOVED & EVERYTHING IN KANSAS & OUR HOME HERE IN BRANSON TO BE SOLD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

WE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE BEAUTIFUL BRANSON, MO. USA– & ALWAYS WILL– THE PAST GOING ON EIGHT YEARS HERE HAVE BEEN AWESOME!!! WE HAVE LOVED LIVING HERE– & MEETING ALL THE PEOPLE WE HAVE– & GETTING TO BE A PART OF EVERYTHING BRANSON HAS TO OFFER— WE HAVE OWNED PROPERTY IN BRANSON SINCE 1984!!! WE LOVE BRANSON & WILL CONTINUE TO COME & VISIT & ENJOY!!  ONE THING — I’M NOT SURE WE WILL MISS THE EIGHT MILLION VISITORS WHO COME TO BRANSON EVERY YEAR!!!!

SEVERAL OF MY MCS SISTERS HAVE ASKED ME WHAT I AM GOING TO ENJOY THE MOST ABOUT MOVING BACK TO KANSAS— NO CLOSE NEIGHBORS—–I CAN BREATHE-—- I CAN GARDEN– I CAN HAVE CHICKENS– WE HAVE PRIVACY!!! AND– ALMOST EVERY TIME WE GO SOME PLACE  IN KANSAS WE RUN INTO OLD TIME FRIENDS WE HAVE KNOWN FOR YEARS!!!

THERE ARE SO MANY POSITIVES–

THE GIRL WE ARE BUYING OUR HOME FROM– ASKED ME WHAT I LIKED THE BEST ABOUT HER HOME??????  I ANSWERED HER WITH ALL HARD WOOD FLOORS– & TILE– NO CARPET AT ALL– ANY PLACE!!! (FOR US WITH MCS– THAT IS A HUGE PLUS)!!!  AND THE CABINETS ARE BEAUTIFUL ALL THROUGH THE HOME– & CUSTOM MADE OUT OF BEAUTIFUL WOODS!!!!!! TWO HUGE FIREPLACES THAT ARE THE WHOLE WALL IN THE ROOMS— MADE OUT OF BRICK & STONE!!  NO STAIRS– (EXCEPT GOING TO THE BASEMENT)  THE ROOMS ARE BIG– & THE YARD IS FULL OF FLOWERS & TREES—— SO MANY THINGS I LOVE ABOUT THE WHOLE PROPERTY!!!  WE LOVE GARY HAVING TWO MORE CITY LOTS ALSO– SO LATER HE CAN HAVE A SHOP THERE!!! AND OF COARSE SINCE I CAN’T PAINT OR CHANGE THINGS WITH MY MCS— I LIKE THE COLORS SHE HAS PAINTED THE WALLS– ETC– COLORS I LIKE— AND I LIKE THE WALK IN SHOWER!!!!! ALL THINGS IN THE HOME– GARY & I LOOKED AT FOR AS WE GET EVEN OLDER— NICE YARD– NICE GARDEN AREA– NICE COVERED PATIO– WE ARE ANXIOUS!!

WELL I WANT TO THANK MY MCS SISTERS WHO KNEW I WAS DRIVING THE RV OVER 350 MILES– FOLLOWING GARY IN A U-HAUL TRUCK & TRAILER– THANKS YOU FOR  PRAYING FOR THE TRAVELING MERCIES FOR US— WE HAD NO PROBLEMS AT ALL——-

THE SECOND AFTERNOON WE WERE IN KANSAS– I TOLD GARY I AM SOOOOOOOO TIRED– LETS GO PLUG THE RV INTO ELECTRICITY & TAKE A NAP– AND WE DID– WE WERE BOTH SO TIRED– WE SLEPT FOR 5 HOURS– & SO DID THE DOGS!!!

About sondasmcschatter

I was encouraged to start a blog as I suffer from MCS /multi chemical sensitivities & other health problems & I have helped several hundred others who suffer from MCS set up "Safe Homes" & given them encouragement & HOPE & share information & lots of laughs along the way also. When you choose to use fragrances, chemicals, or pesticides, You are not simply making a choice for yourself, You are making a choice for everyone around you!!!! What makes me an expert on MCS-- not a darn thing-- BUT have lived with it for years-& years- & have learned lots the HARD WAY-- by experience!! And want to give others help & HOPE & encouragement -- as I know there are not many who understand what it is to live with this illness- & ALL THAT GOES WITH IT!!! Internet has been my way of communication with many who we are confined to their "safe homes" all over the USA & other countries!! I have communicated with many HUNDRED by e-mail-- phone & letters & internet forums-- I hope this blog will help in a better way to share laughter-- hope & information!!! As for many are not any longer able to even leave their homes-- & communication is sooo important & sharing & encouragement & GIVING HOPE!!!

    YIPPEE!!!! I know what you mean about the driving. Even if I’m going across town I go when there will be very little traffic and I pray if someone pulls up next to me that they don’t have a car air “freshener”. Even with my windows up it makes me sick. I’ve started to look into car air purifiers. Have you ever tried one? I kept praying about the house inspection. I bet your health will improve quickly now that you’ll be away from so much traffic and people and ….

        I’m looking into getting a c.ar air purifier. Any suggestions? I hate driving and being surprised by toxic fumes.

        How do people live without Farmer’s Markets? It’s exciting that you’ll time have time to gets flowers in before winter.

      • COLLEEN—— WE HAVE MORE THEN ONE CAR AIR PURIFIER— PLANNED ON PUTTING ONE IN THE RV & PU & U-HAUL TRUCK— WELL—- MUST HAVE PACKED THOSE PUPPIES AWAY– & MOVED THEM ALREADY—— 🙂 OH– WELL!!!!!!!! 🙂 WHEN I FIND THEM AGAIN—- I’LL TELL YOU THE KIND WE HAVE!!!!!!!! 🙂 IF WE STILL HAVE THEM SOMEPLACE!!! 🙂 SO EXCITED ABOUT THE FARMER’S MARKETS— NOW THAT WE ARE LEAVING BRANSON LANDING IS GETTING A GOOD ONE!!! 🙂 YES– GARY WANTS TO MOVE — TONS OF HIS FLOWER STARTS— AND WE HAVE BEEN SAVING SEEDS ALSO——– IN ABOUT 2 OR 3 YEARS– THE YARD SHOULD BE ESTABLISHED ABOUT HOW WE WANT IT— WE WANT TO ADD A BIGGER BACK PATIO AREA– WITH THE FISH POND & FOUNTAIN– ETC- ETC- ETC– BUT WE WILL ENJOY PLANNING IT & MAKING IT HAPPEN!!! I HAVE PACKED UNTIL I ONLY HAVE BIG BOXES LEFT– UNTIL TUES WHEN THE BOOZE STORE HAS MORE BOXES FOR ME—- THE SIZE BOXES I HAVE NOW– IF I PACK THEM– WE WILL NEED A FORK LIFT TO MOVE THEM!!! 🙂 I’M KIND OF AT A STAND STILL AGAIN!!!! I LOOK AROUND AT ALL THAT STILL NEEDS PACKED & IT IS OVER WHELMING!!!!!!! HOW DID WE GET SO MUCH STUFF??????????? 🙂

      • Colleen says:

        Thanks. The air purifier I was looking into was $300 and for that much money I wanted to make sure it worked or if maybe there were good ones that were cheaper. 😀 Fish ponds are so relaxing and I am so excited for your.
