Last Saturday we moved with the help of Greg’s mom, his step dad, step brother, and brother. The boys loaded up the U-Haul while Greg’s mom watched Boogie, and I cleaned up. We were out of there and moved in to our new place in a few hours.
When we arrived, the water was off. I had set up the water account the day before (smart I know). I hooked it up to our bank account to get out of paying the $50 deposit. So luckily a guy from the water department was in the area. He showed up to turn on the water next door, only they weren’t at home. For some reason, he wound up at our place. He kindly turned the water on for us. We had planned on just sucking it up, boiling some water until Monday. No need for stress. See where positive thoughts get you?
Greg’s mom and stepdad took Boogie back with them for a few days so that we could thoroughly unpack in peace. We were determined to COMPLETELY unpack, something that we always fail to do. Everything has has it’s own place. Anything that we don’t need we are donating or selling. It’s time to let go.
On Wednesday, we did some grocery shopping. As we headed back home, the brakes on our car started to fail. It looks like something’s up with the brake line. We’ll see once a family friend looks at it. We avoid going to local mechanics if possible because they always try to wriggle their way into our pockets by telling us that we have unicorns under our hood and how we should purchase their super deluxe anti unicorn packages. It always seems that something goes wrong when we are trying to get it together. It’s always the car, always is. As much as I want to be pissed, I can’t. I’m trying to stay positive and stress-free. It will work out.
Now that we’ve moved, I don’t know what to do. I know I want to chill out. I don’t feel like being bothered. I just need some time to think. A cruise would be nice. I need to focus more on home. I need to get on my couponing game and I need to start menu planning. Our living expenses are about to increase and I’m kind of on the fence. We need to get married. We keep putting it off. I want to get back in to my hobbies. Last year I spent too much time on the computer trying to get my big break, it was worth it I guess. I guess I still have a bit of a bitter taste in my mouth from a series of events starting around the holiday season of last year. I’ve learned what’s worth my time and what isn’t, who will be there for me and who won’t. I will take my time blogging. If it doesn’t come naturally, then I will not force myself to write. I will not write BS posts just to act as fillers. I will not stress out if a week goes by and I haven’t posted. I’m going to focus on quality over quantity. I am referring to Mommy Daddy Blog. I’m on my way to finding direction.
I got a consulting job and I’m really excited about that. I really want to succeed, so I am trying to get my priorities in order.
Last night while twisting my locs, I found a grey hair. Well, isn’t that fabulous?
I miss personal blogging, I really do…
