I have something to tell you all and it’s really more of an “out loud” confirmation to myself that life is good.
I started a new job in June last year. In fact within days of picking up and moving my life across the country. It was hard. In the nine months since I started this new job I have been to Ohio to work with my new co-worker one time. Beyond that is has been all webex meetings and phone calls. I must say I do a pretty good job connecting to people over the internet – I don’t need to see you to establish a relationship with you. Many here that I’ve never met reach out and make comments, so I think that is plain to see.
However, the combination of new life, new job, new co-worker my time in my new role has been less than stellar in how I feel about it. I was doing good work and I was getting recognized for learning fast and doing good things. But I HATED my life when it came to
I was doing my work with pleasure. I was staying late at the end of the day to solve a problem because I was engaged. All of the things I love about my kind of work (technical) had shown up in my day to day life again and I am so happy about that!!!!
Honestly, as I type this, I wonder if it was the fact that I had stopped trying to be happy. I had told those around me; I’m unhappy. That I could finally get some shit out of my head and just let things be. Let them happen naturally and not try to force it so much. My Brain. It’s often a scary place to wander around alone LOL Regardless, I’m happy I feel like I have found my place, for now at least.
School – that is a whole other topic that I have been battling against. My company, despite asking for specific permission to take a second BS, has a new policy that clearly states they will only cover one BS and after that, if you want to go back to school, you have to take an MS. SO guess who is going to be starting their Master’s Degree in August?
And finally, an update on the house. As you may know, the kids will all be coming down the first week in May to help us celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary. We have a home away home booked in Orlando, and all 8 of us will be staying there from Saturday to Saturday! We will hit Disney for 4 days and both Universal Orlando parks. My DIL has not even been to any of these places and I am so excited to watch her have fun like a child!!! Anyway – back to the house. We need this house done when we have FOUR extra adults here in Florida! I wrote the Builder’s office an email and explained that while we were hoping for March we have given up on that. And while we were hoping for early April, we see that is not gonna happen either. BUT we have to be in before the end of April as the first week of May we have this other stuff going on.
They have confirmed
And finally a few pictures 🙂 Last week when the cement was pored, John found a nail (actually my sister found a nail and encouraged him to make our mark in the wet cement) He wanted to do something – but I, being the rule follower was like NO, we can’t! LOL He did and I love it! And then when we stopped by last night…I pulled into our drive way and parked! No more street parking and wandering into the sand to get to the house 🙂
So much is happening inside too. Can’t wait to share the pictures the builder will take when it’s done, as well as ours when we get moved in 🙂
