You are going to start seeing a lot more of me so I hope you don't mind! I am going to post more like a Diary entry so that you get a lot more blogging and updating from me!
So now on to what's been going on!!
The last I blogged I had just started my new job and I hated it and wanted to go back to my old job but I was unsure if i should or not. I really appreciated all your advice and most of you said to go back to my old job so after thinking long and hard about it, I decided that I would do just that!! So I emailed my old boss and told her that I wanted to come back! She was all excited and said she would get right back to me. So not too long after that I got an email from her and she said that Human Resources would be calling me!! Later that day HR called me and burst my bubble.....she said that I could not go back to my old job because someone else bid on it within that agency and so they would get it over me....sniff!!!! I couldn't believe it! I finally made peace with going back and now I find out that I can't!! My old boss was just as devastated. She emailed me 2 weeks ago to tell me that someone just retired and she was going to check to see if I could get that job but I haven't heard anything more. So now it is almost 2 months at my new job and I am slooooowly starting to like it....and I mean slowly! It has its advantages (especially the free parking) and some other things so maybe its meant to be that I couldn't go back. I honestly don't know!! I guess time will tell but for now I am sticking it out where I'm at and letting each day run its course!!
The boys are all doing good. Venti and Mocha have been looking for a place to buy in Maryland but haven't found anything yet. They put bids in 3 different houses but lost each one. They are now looking into renting since they can't find anything and are really getting tired of the 2 hour commute each day! I can't even imagine what that is like to drive in the car 4 hours each day!
Grande and Tall only have a little over a month left of college and then the fun begins when everyone is here! Short got all A's on his report card and his team won their last tournament!! So proud!!
I had also told you that we are thinking about building a new house and on Friday we put an offer in and we are supposed to hear back tomorrow so I'll let you know! We have the lot reserved but haven't listed our house yet until we get the offer signed back! We have been doing MAJOR decluttering and have gotten rid of tons of bags of trash and donated lots to charity. It feels so good to walk into a room and there's hardly and stuff around. It's amazing the things you don't need!
Joe works night shift (8:30pm-5am) and has been for about 3 years. He used to work daylight but they did away with all the daylight jobs which is why he works night shift. Well he is first on the list to go back to daylight when a job becomes available and he got a call on Tuesday to go back!! He starts May 5th an will be working 6am-2:30pm. We will finally have a normal life again!
For those of you that have asked to be added to the "Over 40" list, I will be updating that as well so that it will be current!!
That's the low down for now. I'm sure you noticed my blog background changed...how do you like it?
