Productive Week, and BIG Yarn destash

First, I am destashing quite a bit of yarn. I had hoped to reduce my total bin count from 11 to 5 or 6, but only succeeded in reducing the count to 8. Ah well, I will try again in a month or so. For now, though, those three bins chock full of yarn are being destashed on the Ravelry website:
HERE if you are interested in yarny goodness.

I am also pleased that I have been able to submit 6 reviews this week, 3 of them today. 
I am feeling pretty well overall, although my ankle has continued to deteriorate further, more quickly than expected. I will be so grateful to be in a new accessible home before the year's end (we hope).
Oscar is 50, and thus we may be able to move to a retirement community. We think this will give us the best possible chance of finding a lovely accessible apartment or home.

Oscar is looking into further education through programs at Work First Michigan, and has found some classes that will add quite a bit to his resume. There are various hurdles like applying for a Pell grant to get over, but once all the details are squared away, he will be able to take all of the classes online.
In the meantime, we will continue clearing the house of items we won't wish to move, and putting various things up on Ebay. We are enjoying the extra time together, and are managing very well, I think.
