A Big Change

Wow, too much time has gone by since my last post!  I have been very busy and pretty stressed.  Because of Amy's medical situation and since her medical care is in San Diego, we have decided we need to go back to San Diego for now.  At least for a couple of years - we're hoping to get all clean Pet Scans for that time and then we'll be more comfortable leaving the area.  Well, we can't sell the house because of the market so we are getting it ready to rent.  I hate to rent it, and hope we don't get someone that wrecks it up.  We have done sooo much to it!  But, we have to take the chance.  We won't live in San Diego central but will have to be 30 minutes to an hour away from downtown in the rural areas.  We will have to rent a home there and it will be very challenging since we're going down with Noah's Ark.  Yep, I'm taking all the chickens, the horse and three dogs.  I'm having to re-advertise in San Diego and am trying to bring my business back up there.  It will be a gradual transition as I drop a day of work in my private practice here in Joshua Tree and take on an additional day in San Diego.  For those of you who don't know, I'm a mental health therapist in private practice.  So, you all can imagine the stress with trying to rent the house, build up a business, rent out our house and transition all the animals.  We are getting things into motion now.  Don't know the timeline but will keep everyone updated!  So, I hope you excuse absence the past week or so now that you know what has been going on!


  1. I hope all goes well with the renting and rental.
    I really hope and pray that all goes very well for Amy.
    I am sure your business will pick up once you get a few clients and word of mouth is the best way to get going.
    I wish you both the very best.

  3. Thinking of you two. Hope you are able to find a place that will be a good fit for you and your brood, and that your days are filled with many smiles.

  4. Wow that is a lot to take on all at once, but completely logical. Hope it is going well. Tim started treatments last week. It makes him feel like he has the flu for about 6-8 hours afterward.

  5. This is a big change (for you and your animals). I am sure your days are already filled with challenges. But, do you know what? You guys have each other and together, you'll work thru this challenging time. I know you've got this!


  6. So much to do! This may be a blessing in disguise and perhaps a renter will fall in love with your home and want to buy it! You two are in my prayers and I'm sending "smooth transition vibes your way!" Take care of yourself and take time for yourself too.


  7. I hope you find good tenants and a great place to rent where you can bring all your critters. If you go outside the city, you probably will be able to. A friend of mine did the same in Oregon with horses, goats, donkeys, chickens, 20 cats and several dogs. She found a great place in the end, so it can be done. I will keep you guys in my thoughts and prayers. All the best to both of you.
