My Moving Tips

My recent move is still on my mind in a big way (the stacks of boxes lining each room might have something to do with that).  I wanted to share the knowledge I gained with you from my experience.  These are things which did and did not work for us.  Obviously, not everything that worked …

My NEW New Job

So, Mr. C and I were out on date night last week.  We were just kinda meandering through our new town, enjoying each other, the lovely weather, and the slow, quiet mood of the town. We happened along the candy store.  Hm… Backstory time. A few months ago, we happened to be in this town …

My New Job

I cringe when I say this – I work at Home Depot.  For some reason, at 40 years old, after working as an executive assistant for a CEO, I have a hard time saying out loud that I work at Home Depot. When I got the job, I thought my title was “Backoffice.”  I had …

Oh Man! Where to Start?

Okay.  First off, we’re in.  We have officially moved into our new place.  So much has happened since then.  Thinking about it – I think each new event should get its own blog entry, so I guess you’ll just have to wait for the next few installments.  🙂 So, the new house has its good …

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 …
