Moving Day

Today is moving day.  Before the whirlwind of friends, family, and boxes begins, I just want to take a moment to say goodbye to this house.  We’re leaving it far earlier than we had expected, and with how busy we’ve been since the moment we found out we were leaving, I hadn’t really taken the …

The Day Before

It’s finally here!  Tomorrow is Moving Day!  It’s going to be a very busy day!  We’re hoping to get our entire household (and garage – yuck!) packed up, moved, and then unpacked.  However, today will probably just as busy. Mr. C is taking today off work, which is a really big help.  There are just …

French

When I was in high school, I took just enough French to be able to convince myself that I know French (insert chuckle here). I took four years of it.  I tested out at a college level.  I still think in French from time to time and I have spoken with my sister occasionally in …

Gainfully Employed

So, something good/bad happened yesterday.  I got a job!  Well, as long as my drug test and background check come back okay (insert snicker – I’m as white-bread as they come!) It feels good knowing that I’m going to be earning money again.  Plus, my new income will help pay for my upcoming vacation.  I’m …

Homeward Bound

I’ve wanted to buy a house for about a decade now.  Due to circumstances, it hasn’t been an option. With our landlord giving us less than four weeks to pack up, find a place, and move out, it really gave Mr. C and me a wake up call.  We don’t ever want to be put …

Mammogram

Yup.  That’s right.  I’m old now.  I had my first mammogram the other day.  I wanted to share my experience with you. First off, I didn’t have my paperwork with me (yay!  Moving!  Can’t find anything!)  I had the address plugged into my phone, but didn’t manage to enter the suite number, doctor’s name, or …

Less Than Ideal

A friend of mine posted this on Facebook this morning, and I found it moving.  I tried doing a search to give credit where it was due, but came up with nothing.  So, to whomever wrote this – Thank you.  I think it’s important we all think about this. To all the moms who experienced …

We Have a Place!

That’s right – in under a week, Mr. C and I have secured a place for the both of us, his son, and our three dogs to rent.  Yay! It was the dogs which made me the most anxious.  After looking at the ads posted for houses Mr. C was finding, so few of them …

One Step at a Time

I used to be in a 12-step program (no, not that one.  Nope – not that one either).  I am (was?) a co-dependent.  I used to go to learn how to deal with my addict.  Since leaving my addict, I haven’t felt the need to go back. Until yesterday.  With all that is happening in …

An Unexpected New Chapter

So… something happened the other day which came completely out of the blue. Due to nothing we did or didn’t do, Mr. C and I are losing our home. Our landlord suddenly decided (Mr. C has been living in that house for 10 years) that he wants to live in that home.  He gave us …
