Life has been chugging along without any awful drama. Work is great. I’ve been there for 3 paydays and another one is coming up this Friday. Some of my Maggie & Co. business has taken some wicked turns that would have left me gasping in panic if I had continued. I thank my lucky stars, Karma, God, whatever you want to call it, every day.
I tried joining a gym to exercise in the morning before work and shower at the gym. I hated the showering part, so I’m cutting my losses by cancelling the membership. Instead I will just run around my neighborhood several times for 20+ minutes in the morning. It’s dark, but my neighborhood is lit up like it’s daylight and I feel comfortable doing that.
The Hunter and I took an amazing road trip over July 4th. It deserves its own post. Suffice it to say, we had a fabulous time.
I want to write about how I am feeling about the pending move and all the upcoming changes. It’s daunting. Tomorrow I go to look at places in the new town for the first time. I have someone from work helping me. She is a realtor and does most of the company’s relocations. She is super nice and I see our friendship continuing (hopefully) after this.
I have no complaints other than the drive is tiring. Two hours of highway driving every day does wear me down, but at least traffic flows. I am preparing for a very frugal life once I move. The Hunter and I have struck a deal that will be my side hustle going forward. He is winning a new piece of business that will be substantial. I am so proud of him.
Anyway, I am alive. I am fat and happy. I figure the fat will solve itself once I get settled. Both kids are doing great and my son returns from Asia in about four weeks. I can’t wait to see him. He will be packing up and heading off to grad school shortly upon his return, but at least we will once again be in the same time zone.
My oh my am I relieved that I have come out the other side?? Abso-fucking-lutely. Now I have to help my BFF get there. She is in her valley of despair. Fortunately she says that I give her hope.
Anyway, let me get some rest. My 5:30 am wake up and jog will be here before I know it.
