Long Time No Blog!

Tuesday, June 25, 2013

I can't believe I've gone this long without blogging. Tells you we've been rather busy huh?

First...the little thing that is driving me NUTS! Skin rash. There is a saying that even the mightiest predators can be taken down my the smallest of creatures such as fleas and flies. I believe it. I have no idea if this is caused by bug bites or just hives but....*scratches* can definitely drive someone crazy. However, thanks to the blessing of an eczemic child, I have an amory of pharmaceutical creams and whatnottery. Feel a bit like a greased pig though. Lovely visual for you there. :)

Let's see...what else? Oh, FINALLY got the house refinanced and things resettled in that department. One huge burden taken care of and done! I had such a stressful week getting all the ridiculous amount of paperwork ready for that...right up to the last day with a 3 hour conference call with one of our creditors. Really...the amount of legal schmegal that stuff requires is what really threatens forests.

Moved mother into her new home. Had battles with uncaring moving companies, lackadaisical real estate agents, bad backs and bones, and weather. For the most's done...all that's left is moving it around to her satisfaction (and really...that's nothing to sneeze at.) It's a great house and I think she's going to love it. It's built on a slope and right outside her dining room window is this HUGE hickory tree. That's going to be FANTASTIC in fall. I'm a wee bit jealous. :D

DH and I are doing all right. He is really trying and it's been rather nice. The thing is...I was really hurt by all this and my psyche is struggling against it. I have bad dreams about it all still. It's kind of hard to wake up and remind myself of reality when just two months ago the reality was the nightmare. Kind of crazy right?

Kiddo is doing great. He got a cast for his broken wrist after getting the pins out. It is one that is removable, which is cool. Ortho has come a long way in just a decade. He is out diving in the local pool today because they can make them waterproof and washable. How cool is that? all of that I have still maintained exercise. I have tried my best to eat as healthy as possible (not always in the massive moves we've made this month.) Scale is staying put but the clothes are loose and I've been able to get into the "archives" as I call them. LOL! I got a really great compliment this morning from my boss, which is nice. Not too worried about that number on the scale yet...I know I've got to boost the workouts soon, but not until my house is in order. (I have stuff piled to the rafters in what is supposed to be a dining room...the detritus of a failed divorce?...that seems so weird to write.) Anyhoo, got to find where all that stuff went in the first place...or ...if I'm lucky...get rid of some of it. *evil grin*

If you've slogged through this blog...thanks? LOL! Sorry? I don't know...I'm glad you feel comfortable enough and hopefully slightly amused that you call yourself a friend and come back for more another day. Til then...have a healthy and fabulous day!

    Wow! Lots of stuff going on with you. Thanks for taking the time to blog about it. I need to do that too. I am dealing with buying and selling a house and lackadaisical Realtors is accurate!! Don't they realize they don't get paid if they don't move things along??

    I am glad that things seem to be working out for you and your DH. I am sending you good vibes so they continue to work well.

    And smart to wait for the new shoes to start running. It is much too easy to get an injury when running in old or incorrect shoes.

    You have been busy! Sounds hectic, but things are coming around.

    I'm really, really glad that your DH has come back. I know it was painful for you, but sometimes our partners become lost. Letting them go gives them to space to realize what they are losing. Fortunately he woke up and realized he made a mistake! If he didn't get you back, some other lucky guy was going to snag you! ;) My DH and I did that a few times. Sometimes it was me, and sometimes it was him. It hurt, but we forgave and forgot. We are so much stronger for it. He hurt you and has to regain your trust, and that will take time. I am optimistic this will work out for you. :)
