It’s been a little over a year since I last posted anything. Now that time has passed and I’m beginning to come to terms with late 2017 and pretty much all of 2018, I think it’s time to get back to it. Things have changed radically since I last was with you. For many months I felt it was the end of life but now I see it as The Comfortable Coop Challenge.
What’s the challenge? Well, since my last post Mr. Comfortable and I lost our home…the Comfortable Coop is gone. As I’ve said, cancer is expensive and we just couldn’t keep up with the bills and the rest of our life. So, we declared bankruptcy, surrendered the house, and left. That was the beginning of the challenge.
Since that time I’ve been diagnosed with a heart condition. This required two hospital stays in July. I also got to wear a really fun “event monitor” for a couple of weeks. That was another challenge.
Finally, the biggest challenge has been starting to turn our new place into The Comfortable Coop +. Our youngest son and his wife insisted we move in with them so we could keep the dogs (Remy & Henry) and the ducks (Freckles & Penguin). Rental places are very adamant about no dogs over 100 lbs, no dogs that look like Pitbulls, and no ducks of any kind. The idea that we could keep our critters, be with family, and still have our own space was wonderful. It was also terrifying. Living with our son and his family might be great but it might also turn into a nightmare.
We have a new granddaughter since last I was here. She’s the light of my life (along with the other 7 grand babies) and you’ll be hearing a lot about her and the other kids.
Now that we’re starting this new chapter I thought it might be time to talk about The Comfortable Coop Challenge and reconnect.
I hope to talk with old friends and make new ones along the way with this new journey.
