What a week it’s been! Job hunting, even had an interview, getting things set for Grandma’s next appointment, planning for Doug’s birthday, doing some work for Doug’s dad, cleaning up more after Grandma, etc etc has kept me fairly busy.
I have a couple of job leads, as I often do, and as I also often do, am praying that one of those leads results in a job offer. I wouldn’t mind either of the jobs and would have people I know and love at both places. Keep those prayers coming! 🙂
The next step for Grandma is the financial meeting which has been scheduled for this Thursday, got the call to make arrangements for it today. We will take a good look at her finances, see what her money can do, what help can be given to her, and how to make it all work out. My mom and one uncle will be here too, here’s hoping for some positive answers.
Doug’s birthday was yesterday and it was a successful one. I made him a home cooked meal, did all the cleaning up, we then took about a two mile walk, enjoyed some of the Oreo pie I made, played some Phase 10, and watched Robin Williams: Live On Broadway. It doesn’t sound too eventful, eh? But he’s not the let’s go party type, he prefers to keep things simple. At the end of the day, he was happy, so I was happy. 🙂
Soon, in just weeks, he will be moving into his house and my son and I will be joining him. This is a new journey, a path previewed, but there is still so much we’ve yet to see, to learn. We are excited about this though, feel that it’s the next step, and that we’re ready to take it. The house isn’t that big, but as Doug said, “It’s big enough for us.” We’ve been talking about where to shop for furniture, how we want things to be arranged, etc. It’s so exciting! I know that once the newness wears off that reality will set in. We’ll get annoyed with little habits and such, but we’re fully committed to making this work as we have everything else, with a lot of compromise, communication, remembering to respect one another, and of course…our love for God, and for one another. This is going to be a good thing for us as a family and I look forward to seeing where the road takes us from here.
I hope all is well in the land of WordPress. I pray that many exciting and wonderful things have been going on for each of you. No matter how long I might be away from time to time, I don’t ever forget about the friends I have made on here. Again, thank you for the support and friendships, much love to you all.
Keep writing, remember the joys in life while they’re there to be had, laughter makes life brighter, and love is essential to a happy life…the love from family, friends, your significant other, and you must love yourself. ❤
