Mrs Justa and the new home

Here it is, the home to be, the place we will be moving to in a couple weeks. Well really for the next couple weeks. There are rules, and more rules. The house must have water hooked up, electric hooked up, a minimum 12x12 ft shed on the property and the foundation of the home neatly cinder blocked all prior to us receiving the certificate of occupancy. 100_1449 Now the codes officer did make it quite clear that until he turns our building permit into a certificate of occupancy- then our stuff can live there, but we can not.

Well it is Tues night already- we have the inside of the house seemly done, but there is the lack of electricity, water and the foundation- so it looks like this weekend our stuff will gradually be finding it's own spots, but our bodies will still be resting on pillows at our current home. The POD will go up Thursday and the shed on Friday-Sean and Pat have offered to come PODING on Friday night, and then Les and Barb are coming over Saturday. So maybe we can do it all this weekend. That gives me the remaining 2 weeks till the U haul arrives, to unpack the bins and boxes and try to organize our stuff .

So the big day of moving the rest of the furniture is the 12th of July. Hopefully ( Mark hates when I say hopefully---too optimistic right now for him ) but hopefully, we should have the lacking components to make the codes officer happy.

Mark, well he is hanging in there, low ebb is an understatement right now. His social worker called him today and told him to just stop the Lithium- cold turkey ( Stan will be glad to hear that I am sure). He has only been on it for 13 days, so he should not have serious consequences stopping it, and maybe ( hopefully) he will begin to feel more like Mr Justakrusen for a bruisen ( that is to you Precious Rock) and less like an old discarded rag. Craig and Diane and Justana- you are right, things will get better, even though this seems like where normal will be to him, it is a glitch in the road, a pot hole maybe.

I am note sure when he will feel better, but I do believe the Lithium and he are not good partners. He has gone into some deep depression in these past 2 weeks. But I always reminds myself- we can not get to the top of the mountain be leaping- we have to take one step at a time. And sometimes we have to go in a different direction to overcome obstacles, but one step at a time.

Until he is up and running again, I will try to keep you posted. Looks like it will be around 7-10-08 before we go off line for about 4 days- so for now- thanks everyone for being there, you have no idea how special you all are. My love and best wishes go out to all, Love , Mrs Justa for the person who so often is the Wind Beneath My Wings

My prayers are with you both during this time and will be looking forward to Mark feeling better. I feel for you and your move, we have purchased a park model home and have been going through the same process, getting the lot prepared, funding, homeowners assoc approvel etc. Like you (hopefully) we will take possession and move in on July 3, if we can get routed back to WA in time. Best wishes to you both!

Good to know Mark will stop the lithium. I don't think you will suffer withdraw, Mark.
And I don't understand why lithium if you're depressed.
According to what I saw it works for maniac state...
I don't know.
The house is beautiful!
I know Mark! You don't give a damn if it's beautiful or not now! hehehe
Don't blame yourself for not being jumping with joy for the change and full of energy to do all the work and stuffs that changing houses requires.
It's perfectly normal if you are not feeling almost nothing right now.
Cindy, you're a wonderful woman.
I've met incredible woman since I'm exchanging ideas about it all.
God bless both of you.

Cindy,
The area for your new house is breathtakingly beautiful. I'm sure it will boost the spirits of both of you to get settled. I'm glad to hear Mark is going off the Lithium -- it was bad news for me too, as I previously told him. Sounds like it is affecting him exactly the way it affected me.

Give Mark my love (and a hug for the caretaker and blogkeeper too) and tell him I said that he may be old, but he is not a discarded rag.
