Laboring on Labor Day

Hello Everyone! Did you all have a great weekend? It was not bad here – I got all the furniture moved on Friday with the help of my friend. We unloaded the truck on Saturday morning with help from a couple of friends – so my garage is packed to the gills with furniture. I worked today on unpacking the boxes – putting things away and moving some furniture around. I moved in the kitchen (photo’s later) a “sideboard” that has some excellent storage – it replaced a smaller cabinet that I moved downstairs for the stereo that came home from Clare – now the kids can have music (can you call what teenager’s listen to music?) downstairs – thus saving my sanity. Smart mom, huh? I moved my bedroom around – but I am waiting to finish up until Kyle gets his dressers out of here. Then I will move in a couple more pieces from the garage.

I have been trying to diet – emphasis on trying – but it is not easy working 2 jobs and dieting! I am figuring that I have done some good exercise this weekend moving all that stuff around! That is a bonus – I am in the http://chub-club.blogspot.com/ and I am not happy to admit that I have only lost 1 lb. since signing up. I am hoping that stress keeps me from loosing weight – sounds good, doesn’t it? 🙂

I did get some knitting done last night and this afternoon – I worked on my socks from Knit Cafe – I am close to (within 10 rows) to my toe decreases! Woo Hoo – and just in time – the weather has been decidedly nippy at night – sock weather is knocking on the door. Photo’s of these great socks are coming – stay posted.

Have a great evening everyone – school and work tomorrow.

Ushering in September

Hello Everyone. Well, it is Friday and September 1st! Welcome September! I am ready for a new season – school to start – life to get back to normal (is there such a thing?).

As Labor Day weekend unfolds – I am heading to Clare today – moving furniture out of the cottage. A friend is helping me – and I am eternally grateful for his help. My challenge for the day is biting my tongue and saying nothing to my husband – wish me luck, or better yet – say a prayer for me!

The remainder of the weekend, I am cleaning the house and moving my bedroom furniture around. A new perspective all around.

On a positive note – SP8 ended yesterday and sign ups for http://secretpal9.blogspot.com/ start today. Get on over there and sign up – it is 3 months of fun.

Have a great long weekend everyone!

The end of an era

Hello everyone – I think it is time for me to share with you what has been going on in my life recently. It has been kind of surreal around here lately, but I am forging onward – taking it one day at a time.

My husband left me on July 17th – the day my basement flooded for the second time in a week. Perfect timing huh? Did I know he was leaving? Nope, I certainly did not. Had he left before? Yes, unfortunately he had – a number of times. But, he was never gone more than a night. And he was always sorry for leaving. He really picked a great day – he knew I was going to be out of town all day – and he finished packing (he informed me that he had been packing things since the 4th of July – but, as he was so eager to point out I did not notice) He has moved in with “someone” else. And, yesterday he informed me he was filing for divorce. So – it is the end of an era. Sometimes, you cannot fix something that is broken, no matter how hard you try.

Can you be competent in your life – yet incompetent in relationships? I am definately feeling the need for a Relationship 101 class – maybe even Remedial Relationship classes! Too soon old – too late smart.

Here’s to having a happy Tuesday.
