Stuff and Things

Steven started a new job at the local University about a month ago. He really is not happy there. And then he got a job offer from a restaurant making the same $$ with more hours. So I think he will be changing jobs again soon. *sigh* Stress makes my world go 'round.

Jenna and Nate (J's BF) seem to be getting along well and Nate has interviews scheduled for this week. He will, hopefully, have a job soon. And then they can start looking for their own place sometime after Christmas probably. It will be weird having Jenna not in the house... but good to see her starting her life as a grown up! She is a sophomore this year and school seems to be going well too. But you know how it is once the kids start growing up... parents don't always know what is going on with them any more! Just keeping my fingers crossed.

Both boys are happy in school and glad to be there. They like the routine. And I like the break. I was ready for one.

I am still grieving for Mom. And the anniversary of Dad's death is this month. So I am struggling a bit. Days go by with me not even thinking about it. And then something happens and I get smacked upside the head again. My birthday was the 28th of August and it was.... difficult. I will be very happy when this year is over and done with. Maybe 2013 will be a better, easier year for me.

I am looking forward to moving back to Florida next Summer. I have been wanting to move back for years. I miss my friends. I miss my family. I need to be connected again.

The next ten months or so will consist of me trying to purge and consolidate all of the crap in our house. Moving is never any fun, but moving across states is majorly no fun. I need this move to go smoothly. So, I am in the process right now of trying to catalogue all of our thousands of movies. Then we will put them in soft sided CD cases, the ones that hold about 500, ya' know? And get rid of the individual hard cases. Much easier, and less cumbersome, to move. After that it is time to hit the library. Go through the books, separate Jenna's and Nate's out. Get rid of texts and computer reference books that are too old to be worthwhile. Get rid of books that I will never read again. And then try to catalogue the books.  So. Much. Fun.

Anyone want to come help????

I am addicted to Pinterest and if anyone needs an invite let me know. I am planning to start doing crafts/ sewing again soon and will attempt to show off my work when completed. Pinterest has inspired me!

I have more to share... plans for losing weight, plans for diet and health changes, plans for the kids.... but i am going to try to get back to blogging regularly. So you can come back again tomorrow to read more. LOL
