Who ordered the veal cutlet?

Pardon the title of this post. It is an old inside joke between myself and my oldest brother So. It pretty much means 'what the heck is going on and where am I, who am I and all other questions that involve me or my life'.

Things are so insane. Work is kicking in big time (it has been for a while), I still have so many boxes to go through and figure out where they go. The plumbing is fixed but now I need an electrician to do some updates with the system. I need to have the house sprayed for spiders and ants. UGH!

I am still suffering big time from this bulging disk smack in the middle of my spine. I don't know what my doctor is going to do about it. He changed some of my meds which seems to help some but that baby hurts! About the only thing that helps it feel better is a heating pad and being off of my feet. That is pretty impossible these days with so much to do however.

But we are all doing well. Ryan and Stephanie are still busy bees at home sorting out this and that and what not. My den is somewhat cleared out but the living room is another story. How in the world could I accumulate so much stuff? Oh well, it is what it is. I am glad the move is over and we are getting settled into our new house.

Ryan found a shortcut to work yesterday. It cuts about 7 minutes off of my drive time to work. YEA!!!!! Now, instead of taking 35 - 40 minutes to drive from Kansas it looks like it will take me about 5 minutes to get to work. How cool is that?

It is really odd to live back in the city again. Technically we are in the county but we're so close to everything!

I am so grateful for everything that The Lord has blessed me and my family with. I am really a lucky girl.

I feel like someone made me run 100 miles

OMG! We are finally in the new house. It took F.O.R.E.V.E.R. to finally get everything loaded, unloaded and into the house.

But I am glad it is over. Last night my babies slept with me. Pattykins is weirded out by the new house. There's no telling what her sniffer is picking up. The house was built in 1947 but I really like it. Even my daughter admitted on her facebook that she likes the house. She hasn't told me anything yet! Unless she told me last night in which case I wouldn't remember because my 53 yr old body is soooooooooooooo tired. My eyes are aching. I should have brought my glasses to work but I didn't think about it. Imagine that.

I had my new Sleep Number bed delivered to the house yesterday. So far so good I think. I slept so hard who knows if it is better or not. Pattykins didn't complain!

I am so grateful to be blessed. I have put all of my faith in God and as usual He has taken care of me and my loved ones. Joe and I are both being very fair about the divorce and the property agreement. Neither one of us wanted it to get ugly. It is so much easier to be nice than to be the opposite.

My living room has about 1000 boxes in it. The den has its fair share of boxes as well. But everything is there and the move is over. I am about 5 miles from work which is a lot better than 22 miles from work. I could even go home and eat if I wanted to.

I took my lunch break early today to get the UHaul back. I drove that sucker. I was trying to get someone from work to help me but we are just too busy so I took the bull by the horns and did it myself. I have to say that I did a good job too. I had to stop by the gas station and fill it back to where it was when I rented it and I didn't have any problems at all.

Ryan and Stephanie are busy bees at home locating and unpacking boxes. The Direct TV person will be there any minute to take care of the transfer of service. Good thing too. Survivor comes on tonight! I'm sorry people, but some reality shows I like that Survivor is my all time favorite. Ok, stop rolling your eyes! I know who you are.

I am looking forward to the weekend and maybe I can get caught up on my sleep. I doubt it though. I imagine I will be working my tail off to get things unpacked and in some kind of order. The movers packed 12 boxes of my clothes. Me thinks it's time to start a Goodwill box (or shall I say boxes?)!

Will be off of here for a while

That's because we are moving to our new house Tuesday. It will take me a while to get everything settled and the Internet working again. I can always check from time to time from work but when I am at work I don't use the computer for personal business except on my lunch break from time to time.

We have 99% of the house backed and ready. Moving van is reserved, 3 young men (plus no telling how many of Steph's friends) will be here to help. I close on my new house Monday and it's all uphill from then.

I am moving much closer to work into an older home but it is laid out very well with plenty of room for my family and my pups. I am so anxious to get out of this house and all of the memories that it holds.

That's about it since I have a million things to do today. I will be keeping up with yall's blogs and hopefully it won't be too far from now that I can start blogging on a regular basis. Right now my life is so full of stuff to do! But I know that God will get me and my family through it all. After all, He can do anything.

It's final

Joe and I are officially divorced. We still have the property to sort out but we are both trying to be civil and fair about that. We are moving soon and honestly speaking I can't wait. I want to be far away from the memories of that house and everything that happened. It's time for a new start and that is exactly what I plan on doing.

Meanwhile I continue with my physical therapy for my ruptured disk in my back. It is time consuming and I am having to miss work some, but the good news is that it seems to be helping. My dr put me on Celebrex for the arthritis in my back and that too seems to be helping a bit.

I hope to get back into blogging real soon. Right now there is just TOO MUCH GOING ON!

Ya'll take care and I do continue to read your blogs. Wish me luck!
