Just when life starts to make sense, it throws me for a loop. The latest predicament I find myself in is my own fault though. A couple of weeks ago, I thought my unemployment was ending and then I realized that it wasn’t necessarily ending, the rules were simply changing. For the last sixteen months,Continue reading “July 16, 2021 – Predicament”

June 28, 2021 – Reasonable Doubt
Boy, I’m not sure what’s going on with my husband but his enthusiasm to move seems to be waning rapidly. We were so gung ho at first, running around like maniacs, trying to complete a bunch of stalled projects from the past several years. And now that nearly everything is done, we are sitting inContinue reading “June 28, 2021 – Reasonable Doubt”
June 24, 2021 – All bark and no bite.
If you had told me that once we made the decision to move, that we would have our home listed in just over 2 weeks, I would have told you to get your head examined. Knowing what needed to be done in order to get it ready to put on the market, 6 months ratherContinue reading “June 24, 2021 – All bark and no bite.”
June 22, 2021 – Assemble first, read instructions later.
First of all, I’d like to make an observation. What is it about wet paint that is so enticing to winged insects? Are they all on a suicide mission or what? Just once, I’d like to paint something outside and not have to pick a bunch of dead bugs off the surface afterward. Today, IContinue reading “June 22, 2021 – Assemble first, read instructions later.”
June 20, 2021 – Motivating Factors
If you ask anyone what motivates them, the top two responses would most likely be love or money. Personally, I am chasing the almighty dollar at the moment. I cannot remember the last time I worked so hard in my life! But in the end, if we get the results we’re hoping for (a substantialContinue reading “June 20, 2021 – Motivating Factors”
June 16, 2021 – Saying Goodbye
I am not ready to say goodbye, not just yet. My husband keeps telling me to call my brother and break the news but I can’t seem to do it. The last few times we’ve communicated, he’s told me how much he’s struggling (with depression). Knowing this, I don’t feel good about dropping a bombContinue reading “June 16, 2021 – Saying Goodbye”
June 14, 2021 – Moving at Warp Speed
Let me tell you, I knew that once we made up our minds to move, the momentum would pick up, but this is ridiculous! In the last two days, I have completed more tasks around my house than I have in the last two years. Why the hurry? Oh my gosh, we had the firstContinue reading “June 14, 2021 – Moving at Warp Speed”
June 12, 2021 – No longer ‘on the fence’.
Well, there’s nothing like the concept of ‘moving’ to light a fire under my butt. I actually managed to ‘tick one of the boxes’ on my list today and finally got around to staining our cedar gate and fence. And that isn’t all. The one job that I have resisted tackling because it’s so vast,Continue reading “June 12, 2021 – No longer ‘on the fence’.”
