What a weekend, what a Monday, what a week....
Have I ever told you that where we live now (West Texas) is not our final destination? Oooh.. did that sound at all morbid? Not what I mean.
Anyway, for those of you who don't know much about me and my fam.. We moved from the lovely and much missed State of NC, back to Texas.. "back to" because my husband and I met and married here while we were both attending college.. and then we moved to NC for employment reasons.. I had family there, we loved it.. we took that leap. No jobs, just hope.. can't live on hope.. lived with my parents... 3 months later, we found jobs.. we moved to a different part of NC than my parents.. we lived there for 7 years.. Moved BACK to Texas 2 years ago.. (ok.. 2 years ago December 4th, but who's counting?) again, for employment reasons.. My husband sort of has to do some time here in this city, before we can move on to the area of Texas that we really want to live in.
I know, kind of confusing.. or is it? And if you read all of that - thanks for sticking it out!
So.. The long and short of it - we are looking to move after the new year. It seems like the job My hubs wants is opening then. We shall see.. and hope. and hope. and pray. And We have a realtor coming on Thursday. My husband spent the weekend fixing our fence, I would say "mending the fence" but that would sound so "Emmet Otter's Jug Band Christmas" And if you haven't seen that - see it - It is a Christmas tradition! And I spent the weekend painting 2 rooms. And the girls spent the weekend in imaginary play - I think they maybe watched 2 hours of TV the whole weekend - It seems the gap between their ages is closing so quickly - that they are like equal playmates - almost.. they have their moments. But, I think little Emily has worked hard on doing all of the things that Allison can do. And when, she can't do it, she just changes the subject or fakes it. Ha.
So, my week will be a busy one. Thursday I will find some time to breathe - maybe after the realtor leaves and we have a list of what is recommended we do, how much our home is worth in the state of the current and FABULOUS market(sarcasm).. and so on..
oh.. and how do you paid bloggers do it? I have done a few paid posts. They don't come easy for me, ahem - you may have noticed. I don't like to talk about something that I don't have the least bit of knowledge about, so I have not been accepting many jobs. I have one that is waiting for me to finish.. ugh.. and I am dreading it. Prepare for a blog post that just may hurt your eyes to read. Was I even allowed to say that? You never read anyone talking about paid posting..maybe this will get me kicked out of the club. I am clueless.
