SEPT 8,’15
HERE I AM IN BURNS, KS. USA!!  FIRST TIME I HAVE HAD THE COMPUTER ON  SINCE  AUG. 22, ‘15 — STILL NO INTERNET–THE PAST SEVERAL WEEKS HAVE BEEN A BLUR— COMING TO KANSAS LOOKING AT THE HOME IN BURNS, KS.– WRITING A CONTRACT THAT SAME DAY– & THEN SETTING A DATE TO CLOSE ON THE SALE– & US RENTING STORAGE UNITS IN ELDORADO & BURNS & BRINGING  LOADS TO STORAGE UNITS BEFORE WE CLOSED ON THE SALE OF THE HOUSE–LOTS OF U-HAUL TRUCK & TRAILER LOADS & THE HOME INSPECTION & MORE LOADS TO KANSAS & STAYING AT THE ELDORADO LAKE IN THE RV & LOADING & UNLOADING & PACKING  & PACKING & PACKING & PACKING & NOW THE HOUSE IS OURS & UNPACKING– & UNPACKING & UNPACKING & GARY IS STILL GOING BACK & FORTH TO BRANSON TO GET MORE LOADS OF STUFF!!!
I HAVE HAD NO TV & NO RADIO  & NO INTERNET  FOR OVER TWO WEEKS– & HAVE NOT HAD THE HEADACHES!!
LIFESTYLE CHANGE HAS BEEN HUGE GOING FROM BRANSON, MO. TO BURNS, KS!!!!!!!  BRANSON HAS OVER EIGHT MILLION VISITORS A YEAR WITH BUMPER TO BUMPER TRAFFIC  MOST ALL THE TIME– & BURNS, KS. HAS A POPULATION OF UNDER 300 COUNTING DOGS & CATS- & THE STREETS ARE GRAVEL & ONE BLINKING STOP LIGHT IN THE CENTER OF TOWN!!  
MY FIRST WEEK IN BURNS, KS. I HAD AN EXPERIENCE I HAD NEVER HAD BEFORE– I BOUGHT EGGS & MILK & SUPPLIES AT THE HARDWARE STORE!!! YES I SAID HARDWARE STORE –– THE HARDWARE STORE HAS A COOLER & A FRIG & A FEW SHELVES OF MUST HAVE GROCERIES ALONG WITH ALL THE HARDWARE!!   I LOVE IT!!!
BURNS, KS. DOESN’T HAVE MANY BUSINESSES– NOR TOURISTS OR NOISE!!! IT IS QUIET IN BURNS!!!!!!!!! REALLY QUIET!!!  THE MOST NOISE WE HAVE IS HEARING THE NEIGHBOR’S ROOSTER CROW!!!
WHAT I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE –IS BEING ABLE TO BREATHE!!!!!!!! YES– BREATHE!!!!!!!!!!!! HAVING MCS– THIS IS THE FIRST TIME IN A VERY VERY VERY LONG TIME– I CAN BREATHE– AND I CAN GO OUTSIDE WHEN EVER I WANT IN MY YARD– AND NO TOXIC CHEMICALS!! AND NO NEIGHBORS WITHIN SPITTING DISTANCE!!!
AND THE WHOLE FEELING IS DIFFERENT– EVERYONE IS FRIENDLY– EVERYONE WAVES– EVERYONE SAYS WELCOME!! AND IF SOME ONE HAD TOLD US THAT SOMEONE WILL RING YOUR DOOR BELL & HAVE HOMEMADE CINNAMON ROLLS FOR YOU OR HOME MADE MUFFINS– WE PROBABLY WOULD HAVE MOVED HERE SOONER!!!!      🙂  
I WAS LOOKING FORWARD TO A CLOTHES LINE– BUT FORGOT HOW WINDY IT IS IN KANSAS!!!!  I DON’T WANT TO HANG OUR GOOD CLOTHES ON THE LINE– OR THEY GET BEAT TO DEATH WITH THE WIND! GARY HAS NOT HAD TIME TO MAKE ALL THE CHANGES TO HOOK UP OUR CLOTHES DRYER– SO WE ARE BLESSED TO HAVE OUR  WASHER HOOKED UP– SO I WASH & HANG THINGS ON HANGERS & HANG THEM IN THE BATH TUB!!
I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE OUR NEW HOME & SO DO THE GIRLS–(OUR 3 DOGS)  WE ALL HAVE ADJUSTED WELL– POOR GARY HAS NOT BEEN HERE LONG ENOUGH TO TOTALLY ENJOY YET– AS HE IS STILL MAKING TRIPS TO BRANSON DOING EVERYTHING TO FINISH UP THE MOVE & GET THE HOUSE READY TO SELL IN BRANSON!!!
WE ARE ENJOYING EATING OUR MEALS IN THE DINNING ROOM– AT THE TABLE!!! WE HAVE BEEN SLEEPING IN THE LOVE SEAT  DOUBLE RECLINER AS GARY HAS NOT HAD TIME YET TO GET THE WATER BED SET UP & FILLED!! BUT BOY IS IT GOING TO FEEL GOOD TO SLEEP IN OUR BED WHEN IT IS READY!!!!!  WE LOVE THE HARDWOOD FLOORS– ALL THROUGH THE HOUSE– WHEN THE GIRLS CHASE EACH OTHER — THEY WIPE OUT ON THE FLOORS– AS THEY CAN’T STOP!!!
OH– CELL PHONE SERVICE– IS THE ONLY DOWN FALL IN BURNS. KS. TO GET THE BEST  CELL PHONE SERVICE WE HAVE TO STAND OUT IN THE MIDDLE OF THE STREET IN FRONT OF OUR HOUSE–NO I’M NOT KIDDING!!!  WE FOUND  OUR NEIGHBORS ACROSS THE STREET HAVE A BOOSTER ON THEIR CELL SERVICE– & SO THE CLOSER WE GET TO THEIR HOUSE– THE BETTER OUR SERVICE– THE ONLY ROOM IN OUR HOUSE WE HAVE SERVICE IS AT THE ONE END OF THE LIVING ROOM!!! SO WHEN GARY GETS HOME FOR A WHILE– WE PLAN ON GETTING A BOOSTER FOR OUR CELL PHONE SERVICE!!! AND WE PLAN ON CALLING ABOUT INTERNET SERVICE– THERE IS ONE OPTION FOR INTERNET IN BURNS, KS. TAKE IT OR LEAVE IT!!! SO WE PLAN ON TAKING IT!!!   IF YOU ARE READING THIS ON MY BLOG— WE WILL HAVE HAD TIME TO TAKE IT!!!!
MY KITCHEN — I LOVE– CUSTOM MADE BUILDIN’S LOTS OF THEM– & I HAVE MOVED THINGS AROUND IN MY KITCHEN SEVERAL TIMES ALREADY AS THE MORE I COOK THE MORE  GET A FEEL FOR WHERE I WANT EVERYTHING!!! BUT LOVE THE KITCHEN– NEVER HAD SO MANY WONDERFUL BUILD-INS!!!  AND MY  DISHWASHER IS SO QUIET WE ARE NEVER SURE IF IT IS  REALLY RUNNING!!!
ONE OF MY FAVORITE ROOMS IN THE HOUSE IS GOING TO BE MY WALK-IN PANTRY– I MADE ONE OF THE BEDROOMS A WALK-IN PANTRY!!! AS YOU ALL KNOW IF YOU HAVE MCS– SHOPPING SOMETIMES — WELL IT IS IMPOSSIBLE– OUR HEALTH DOESN’T PERMIT GETTING OUT & BEING EXPOSED TO TOXIC CHEMICALS!!! SO YOU HAVE TO COUNT ON SOME ONE ELSE TO DO YOUR SHOPPING FOR YOU– OR WHEN YOU ARE ABLE TO SHOP– YOU STOCK UP!!!!! I’M AN OLD FARM GIRL — & HAVE ALWAYS BEEN USE TO STOCKING UP– STORING THE ACORNS FOR WINTER– LIKE A SQUIRREL!!!!   WELL GARY FILLED THE ROOM WITH SHELF UNITS– & SO ONE OF MY FREEZERS IN IN THERE– & SUPPLIES & SMALL APPLIANCES!! I CAN SEE WHAT I HAVE & WHERE IT IS!! GARY HAS DONE PROBABLY 75%  FOR OUR SHOPPING THESE PAST FEW YEARS– AS THE GROCERY STORES–CAN BE SOOOOOOOO TOXIC TO US WITH MCS– FROM THE TOXIC PRODUCTS– TO THE PEOPLE WEARING TOXIC FRAGRANCES — ETC!!  ONE TRIP TO THE STORE CAN PUT YOU DOWN FOR DAYS– IN YOUR MCS SAFE HOME– TRYING TO REBUILD YOUR BODY AGAIN!!!
LOVE OUR TWO BIG FAMILY ROOMS– ONE UPSTAIRS & ONE IN THE BASEMENT– BOTH HAVE ONE FULL WALL AS A FIRE PLACE THE ONE UPSTAIRS IS RED BRICK & THE ONE DOWN STAIRS IS NATIVE STONE!!
WE WOULD LOVE TO BE ABLE TO PUT CARPET ON THE STEPS GOING DOWN STAIRS & IN THE DOWN STAIRS AGAIN– BUT WITH MY MCS– I’M NOT SURE OF OUR OPTIONS & IF THERE IS ANY THING WE COULD USE– IF YOU HAVE ANY IDEAS– PLEASE SHARE!!!! PLEASE!!!
IF YOU HAVE FOUND A FLOORING YOU CAN USE & NOT MAKE YOU SICK WITH YOUR MCS–WITH TOXIC CHEMICALS — PLEASE LET ME KNOW!!! RIGHT NOW I HAVE AN AREA RUG WE HAD ON THE BACK COVERED PATIO IN BRANSON– THAT NO LONGER HAS ANY SCENTS!!! BUT WE WANT TO DO SOMETHING ELSE LATER — ALSO WHEN WE HAVE MORE TIME!!!
GARY PUT IN A NEW SHOWER HEAD IN THE WALK-IN SHOWER– WITH A RAIN HEAD– LOVE THAT SHOWER!!! WE HAVE A WATER SOFTENER– THAT WAS SOMETHING TO GET USE TO– ALSO FILLING OUR BIG BERKY WATER PURIFIER WITH WATER THAT HAS NOT GONE THROUGH THE SOFTENER. &  THERE IS AN RO ON THE KITCHEN SINK ALSO!!
THE TWO CAR GARAGE IS FULL OF BOXES AGAIN TO BE UNPACKED–  THIS IS LIKE THE SECOND OR THIRD TIME THE GARAGE HAS BEEN FILLED WITH BOXES–TO BE UNPACKED & WELL IT IS FULL AGAIN FROM GARY’S LAST TRIP TO BRANSON & BACK WITH A 27 FT U-HAUL TRUCK— I OPEN THE GARAGE  DOOR & LOOK & AM OVERWHELMED– FOR TWO OLD PEOPLE WE HAVE WAY TOOOOOO MUCH STUFF!!!! I HAVE UNPACKED 3 DOZEN BOXES THIS MORNING & DON’T KNOW WHAT TO DO WITH THOSE BOXES I UNPACKED!!!!
OH WE GOT A NICE RAIN LAST NIGHT– I HAD BEEN PRAYING FOR A TOAD STRANGLER RAIN– BUT WE DIDN’T GET THAT MUCH– BUT WE DID GET A NICE RAIN!!!! GARY IS BRINGING BACK THIS TRIP MY CHICKEN COOP & ALL 300 PLUS HOUSE PLANTS & SOME STARTS OF HIS FLOWERS– HOPE TO SEE HIM TOMORROW OR THE NEXT DAY!!!

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!!!

    WELCOME HOME. i GUESS ALL THOSE OTHER ALMOST HOMES WEREN’T GOOD ENOUGH FOR YOU AFTER ALL. THE PERFECT ONE WAS WAITING FOR YOU. SOUNDS LIKE HEAVEN THERE — EXCEPT I DON’T THINK I COULD LIVE WITHOUT HANGING MY CLOTHES ON THE LINE. ❤

    So glad you’re back!!!!!! I really missed you. Flooring–they say the least chemical is glazed ceramic or porcelain. This is what we are going to use. But of course can be hard on feet & back, etc. I’ve heard of using natural cork–might especially be an option for the stairs where there isn’t going to be any water. (I would be afraid of spilling water & getting mold in the cork….) I”ve also heard of natural wool. Or, what about braiding old cotton T-shirts, like they used to do with old cotton dresses for throw rugs? 😀 The wind turbines sound really cool!!! Praise God for all the blessings in your life!!!!!
