Surgery is scheduled, Club Little House Swap, First House Showing

This post is a combination of things, kinda like my life right now.  First of all my surgery is scheduled for July 3.  Yes, the CT scan was okay.  That means that there shouldn't be anything serious going on in the pelvic area.  They will still be checking out my leg area.  Don't know if it will just be the surface or deeper down to the muscle.  I am glad that I have had some time to get my mind where it needs to be.  Since my mini breakdown, I have rested a bit.  I know I can handle this.  I am more positive for the time being.  I did work pretty hard today as we are having our first showing tomorrow late afternoon.  So it will be me and the dogs getting things ready and hopping in the bug to get out of the house.  Things are pretty much ready.  I know that I will be stressed for the first showing but it will get easier.  I might add that the carpets downstairs were scheduled to be cleaned tomorrow morning.  Luckily the guy that does the cleaning is a family friend.  The Stanley Steamer secretary wasn't seeing my need to get the carpets done first thing.  But, my friend called me and said he would come at 7 a.m.  The bad part is that it has rained non-stop and it's a bit muddy.
 
These pictures of the shelf I found to use as a doll house.  I actually found it last year.  It's about two feet tall and is very heavy.  I will wait to put it up in my new condo.  I staged it so you could see my swap goodies.  This was such a fun swap for sure.
The first picture is of the whole shelf.  Doesn't it look like a house.

Here is the wedding room.  There is a suitcase, a wreath, the veil and the hat box were swaps.  They came in a hope chest that missed the photo shoot.  There was a full mirror added in another photo.  These were the peg dolls that I had made before.  I love using the veil on the bride.
I'm not sure if I like the rusty trim.  Do you?
The banner came with one of the other items.......the wreath, I think.
Okay this is a baby's room.  Remember I just put these rooms together with the items I got.  I made the baby in the cradle.  The rug, the cute little dresser, the crate and coat rack, the bonnet, and the kitty were all swap gifts.  If you look closely above the baby's cradle is a real Mary Engelbreight painting.  She was in the swap.  It has bunnies on it.

Check out the screen door with the banner on it.  Not sure where I will end up putting this.  Isn't it amazing that I got these items and could make rooms out of them.  We made 12 and received `12 back.  Amy Powers of Inspire was the hostess.

So that's about all I got for now.  Back to getting the house ready.
Thanks again for all your love, support and prayers.  I think they are already working.

I'm trying to catch up with you, but I wanted to be sure to wish you good luck with your surgery. Our house is on the market as well so I know how stressful this is.

Dear Debby, I do so understand what you are going through right now. It is frightening when we go through these physical trials. Even when we know God is with us we can still feel so vulnerable.
I will keep you close in my prayers and ask for you to have "the peace of God that transcends all understanding will guard your heart and mind in Christ Jesus." Philippians 4:7.
